Re: 'is it the default'...

Default or not, does it really matter ? I say No! Because decades of network access up to now says you make no assumptions... Instead you double and treble check your locks always etc... Whereas what this says, is that the rise of the cloud is being purely driven by selfish corporate cost control.

Whilst I sort of agree with your first point, I think the bigger problem is the rise of the culture where developers are encouraged to go their own way and shove their data into a convenient cloud without any consultation with the IT staff who might have had some clue about network security.
