We're accustomed to expecting our security vendors to provide us with thorough, up-to-date defenses: anti-malware, constantly updated spam filters and more. But increasingly, security companies view protection of data, as well as defending the networks on which that data resides, as a core product. This is a good thing -- and its fullest flowering may take place in the cloud. When considering cloud-based security vendors and services, take a look at the protection -- backup, recovery and related services -- that they offer. (Just be sure to give serious thought to how you will maintain regularly updated local copies of the information you're entrusting to the cloud-based vendor. Just in case.)
