Let’s be clear here, this is not a problem with the AWS S3 platform. Potentially sensitive data is being stored in S3 buckets that have been set up as publicly available.

Scale – supporting massive workloads in the Cloud securely

A very common problem for businesses across all sectors is dealing with scale. In a traditional on-premises world, the infrastructure would be sized to deal with peak load. That may be only a few days a year. The “normal” load may be only 10% of that. Think about that for a moment.
