The design depends upon some unique features offered only by that provider. What should concern Ryan the most about the fact that these service features are not available from other providers? A. Vendor Lock-In B. Interoperability C. Auditability D. Confidentiality Correct Answer: A Interoperability is the concern that services should be able to integrate and work well together. There is no indication that interoperability is at risk in this scenario. There is also no indication that the use of this vendor creates any special auditability or confidentiality concerns, making both of those options incorrect. The greatest risk in this situation is that the service offering will depend upon features provided only by a single vendor, preventing Ryan’s organization from moving to a different vendor and lock-ing them into their current provider.

Since the vendor is responsible for managing the storage hardware, the vendor would retain responsibility for destroying or wiping drives as they are taken out of service. However, it is still the customer’s responsibility to validate that the vendor’s sanitization procedures meet their requirements prior to utilizing the vendor’s storage services.
