Cisco CEO: Cloud Computing a 'Security Nightmare'

If anyone has the right to be excited about cloud computing, it's John Chambers. But on Wednesday Cisco Systems' Chairman and CEO conceded that the computing industry's move to sell pay-as-you-go computing cycles available as a service on the Internet was also "a security nightmare."

Speaking during a keynote address at the annual security confab, Chambers said that cloud computing was inevitable, but that it would shake up the way that networks are secured. "You'll have no idea what's in the corporate data center," he said. "That is exciting to me as a network player. Boy am I going to sell a lot of stuff to tie that together."
