Fear of NSA snooping could hurt U.S. cloud vendors

Patrick Thibodeau | Aug. 27, 2013
Reports suggest that the news about the NSA's secret data-collection program is causing foreign users to look elsewhere for cloud-based services.

Like Weinstein, Anderson said European governments also access private online data. "If you think that Prism is the only program in the world where a government is inspecting private data, you are pretty naive," he said.

Nonetheless, Anderson did warn that continued "missteps on the part of the U.S. government" could have a long-term impact on the worldwide perception of the U.S. cloud computing business.
