Do You Trust Video Surveillance Cloud / P2P Offerings?

Port forwarding and DDNS have gained a black eye from the ongoing hacks / botnets. Hikvision is clearly moving away from that and so are many other vendors.

Eliminating port fowarding and DDNS, while popular with dealers, will improve security by preventing devices from random Internet attacks.

However, now the user needs to trust the cloud service / P2P provider (whether it is Hikvision or Axis or Ubiquiti, etc.).

So do you trust them? Under what conditions? etc.
