    Yes, the cloud is cheaper.
    Yes, the cloud is faster.
    No, the cloud is not more (or less) secure.

    In this case, the trouble was not truly related to the cloud…a firewall misconfiguration can happen in a traditional environment as well. What was lacking here (and is often lacking in traditional environments as well) is proper configuration testing and monitoring as well as network traffic analysis/threat intelligence that may have discovered the breach attempt sooner.
