Cloud app security

I am interested in running cloud apps for my business but I understand that running any program from the cloud brings up security concerns. I know Microsoft cloud app security has become available for everyone now but does this cover all cloud apps? Are the risks really that high when using cloud apps or have they been well secured?

Welcome to the Sitepoint forums, @Hunter2
You bring up an interesting question and I anticipate some discussion to ensue as a result.

Don’t be fooled by buzzwords. There is no difference between a [so called] “Cloud App” and the traditional server applications that have been powering the Internet for decades. Marketing Hype may be professing some vulnerability with this new-fangled way of hosting web services. But, in fact, the only thing “new” about it is the way the infrastructure is managed.

At the root of it all is still good, old-fashioned server hardware running decades-old server OS.
