Virtualization and cloud computing alter the risk of some information security threats. For example, unsupervised physical access in a virtualization environment exposes not just one device but also the entire virtual network to the risk of theft or destruction and compromise. Similarly, compromising a cloud provider's system may provide unauthorized access to multiple systems. Moreover, because public clouds are, by definition, accessible via the Internet, the authentication process is the primary means of protecting your data stored in the cloud from unauthorized access. Public clouds also raise concerns about the other aspects of systems reliability (confidentiality, privacy, processing integrity, and availability) because the organization is outsourcing control of its data and computing resources to a third party.
