The volatile nature of security breaches has compelled businesses to not only ramp up security, but also deploy test and monitoring systems that can detect, prevent and recover from cyber attacks.

"There has been a significant rise in the number of publicized security breaches, such as advanced persistent threats and zero-day attacks, aimed at stealing corporate and individual identity," said Frost & Sullivan Measurement and Instrumentation Program Manager OIga Yashkova-Shapiro. "These attacks highlight the importance of testing cloud infrastructure through robust virtual private networks, firewall testing and security monitoring systems."

However, concerns regarding the reliability of these solutions hamper the installation of cloud testing infrastructure systems. With virtual machines spread far apart and controlled from a remote location by third-party cloud service providers, managing, monitoring and enforcing security policies across the network is a complex task. The lack of proper security policies adds to this challenge.

Therefore, defining interoperability standards that will enable businesses to move applications and data back and forth between private and public clouds or between multiple service providers is crucial for market growth.

"Meanwhile, service providers are looking to design innovative 'everything as a service' business models that will transfer the responsibility of IT infrastructure control to enterprises," noted Yashkova-Shapiro. "This will present opportunities for test solution vendors to work directly with end-user groups and widen their consumer base."

Small and medium businesses, improved communication infrastructure, and affordable virtualization technologies will continue to drive the uptake of public cloud computing and testing systems.
