Cloud computing represents a significant market opportunity for Communication Service Providers. To succeed in the cloud market, CSPs need to provide superior cloud services that are more trusted than those offered by the current generation of Web-based cloud providers. CSPs that can provide cloud services with the highest levels of trust and availability at the lowest cost will profit most from the cloud. An interesting market CSPs should look at is ‘Information Protection as a Service’. Leveraging their networks, CSPs are best positioned to monetize their skills and investments and provide various security and information protection services to their customer base and target markets.
