You cannot simply sniff SSL  traffic and man in the middle attack on a
large scale are *very* complex.
The idea behind moving to a cloud provider (Again, I'm not in favor of
moving world+dog to clouds) is many (if not more) of the companies
simply lack the technical skills required to secure their sensitive
information (very true), and that this jobs should be left to the
experts at the cloud provider (which remains to be seen).
