Every issue in the article has been mentioned here in our own cloud related discussions. Practically cut and paste with some company name drops for context.

Seriously though-
I wonder how Atomic Fiction (mentioned as being pro-cloud) handles the 'paranoid client' security issue as they've worked on a number of big productions as well.

The No-Brainer for cloud computing is a myth.
The term "cloud" is also nonsense since all the stuff is in the cellars somewhere.
The whole wireless issue is a matter of must so that all the secret services can log in into your machine.
The moment you are on internet, security of data is in jeopardy.

I'm not sure what the actual answer is, but I'm sure it comes up when they're bidding for projects. Each client and project is different, some clients tend to have stricter security policies - and there are only a few projects on their resume where I would expect security was tighter than usual - Star Trek Into Darkness being a prime example.

And as a guess, the story content of the work could play a factor. If your working on a sequence which contains the big plot twist or the ending then security could be stricter with regards to the work your given.

I assume they're using services that are correctly certified for MPAA etc.
