The increased reliance on cloud computing will bring with it new flavours of threats, according to Trend Micro.

The security company, in its predictions report for 2010, released on 9 December, identified cloud computing as a trend that will amplify threats to companies over-reliant on cloud computing vendors.

It noted that cloud computing, driven by the financial climate, is poised to "take off and grow exponentially", but warned the nature of the cloud makes it an attractive target to hackers, who are drawn to the ease of going after a single cloud serving various customers and taking down "multiple systems secured the same way".
