Today, it is highly attractive for businesses to use the cloud as the platform to run their enterprise IT and business transactions: scalable infrastructures provide flexibility and cost efficiency, while the participation in service ecosystems allows building applications on demand by exploiting the vast amount of functionality that is ready to be consumed over the cloud. But taking advantage of all these opportunities is still obstructed by trust concerns. Handing over sensitive data to a third-party for processing, together with the complexity of the service ecosystem, the lack of visibility of its structures and the increased dependency on service providers constitute a non-negligible risk for businesses.
