    Cloud providers ensure that _________via the cloud are secure by implementing testing and acceptance procedures for outsourced or packaged application code.

    • A.

      Platform as a service

    • B.

      Infrastructure as a service

    • C.

      Applications available as a service

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    C. Applications available as a service
    Explanation
    Cloud providers ensure that applications available as a service via the cloud are secure by implementing testing and acceptance procedures for outsourced or packaged application code. This means that they have processes in place to ensure that the applications they offer to their customers are thoroughly tested and meet security standards. This helps to protect the data and information that is stored and processed within these applications, providing a secure environment for users.

    Correct Answer
    B. Business continuity and data recovery
    Explanation
    Cloud providers have business continuity and data recovery plans in place to ensure that service can be maintained in case of a disaster or an emergency and that any data lost will be recovered. These plans involve strategies and procedures to minimize downtime and ensure the availability of services. Business continuity focuses on maintaining operations and minimizing disruptions, while data recovery focuses on recovering lost or corrupted data.
