BOSTON -- High technology's biggest bet these days is on "cloud 
computing," namely massive data centers running databases and 
application software across networks for businesses, consumers and some 
combination of the two. The idea is that the shared systems can scale up 
savings, transactions and innovation faster than ever.

Less talked about, however, is the prospect of scaled-up security risks.

Already malicious hackers routinely make their way into individual 
servers and systems, scoring financial information or dropping 
company-crippling malware. Harnessing their own ad-hoc super networks of 
"enslaved" personal computers attached to the Internet, they spam, steal 
and spoof honest businesses, costing them billions annually, with no 
sign of letting up.

How can this be fixed? According to one of the computer security 
software industry's most senior executives, the answer is to destroy 
security as a stand-alone business.
