Summary : Aesop wrote a little ditty about some discontented frogs who lived in a pond. They asked Zeus for a new King. They got one. It ate them. The moral of this story is "be careful what you wish for as you might just get it." The corresponding analog is that of virtualization and cloud security. It's coming, but it's not going to look much like what security looks like today and it's certainly not what people are expecting. In fact, it may consume us all because we're unprepared for what we're asking for.
