Adobe shifts Creative software to the cloud, monthly subscription[^]

Basically, Adobe has said that they are abandoning desktop applications (they have already pulled Creative Suite 6 from physical and virtual store shelves) and replacing them with subscription-based cloud services. So far, this seems to apply only to the Creative Suite applications (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver, After Effects, Adobe Premier Pro and Adobe Muse) so, hopefully, more basic apps like Acrobat and Acrobat Reader will not be affected.

This really pisses me off. The company I work for is in the financial sector. We get audited by state and federal agencies regularly. A big part of the audits look at data security. It takes several years for regulators to address changes in technology, and until we have clear protections, there is no bloody way in (the hot place) we are going to use any kind of cloud-based service: we simply cannot accept the risk of someone hacking the facility, stealing client information and emptying accounts. If Amazon and the major credit cards can be hacked, who is to say that Adobe (and Microsoft and Apple and other companies moving all their services to the cloud) won't be as well?
