Encryption
I like that "The Computing Cell is the only infrastructure service that encrypts entire workloads—all virtual machine or container instances and attached storage, including root volumes, data volumes and server-based instance storage—to enable enterprises to process and store sensitive data on the public cloud." But if the data is very sensitive you may not even want the encryption keys to be sent to the cloud when they are used for encryption and decryption of the storage volumes.

A recent report from Gartner had some good news and concluded that "Cloud Data Protection Gateways" provides a "High Benefit Rating" and "offer a way to secure sensitive enterprise data and files stored in cloud applications". Cloud Encryption Gateways encrypts data before sending it into the cloud. This approach can be very effective in addressing attacks against cloud data and compliance with regulations.
