The cloud is not all rainbows and unicorns.

The dragons of the Internet underworld come to life—and meet their fate—in a new animated video from Intel. This video, now playing on YouTube, offers a colorful look at the serious topics of cloud security and compliance.

The video is set in a medieval cloud-scape, where dragons that threaten cloud security are battled by an IT hero. The video makes the point that the cloud is great but it’s “not all rainbows and unicorns.” It comes with serious security issues that must be addressed.

A key takeaway is that cloud security is not an oxymoron. What’s more, it can begin at the hardware level with a root of trust based on Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT). That’s where you first fight off dragons like malicious rootkits and other malware, and help keep them controlled throughout your extended cloud deployment.
