Rise Development Environment

I had my first opportunity to check out Rise yesterday. It looks nice, and straight forward to use. I like that the output fits on so many devices so well, and that it allows for scrolling on the devices. 

My biggest concern is the development environment. Since this is entirely web based, and in the cloud, it seems to me that there is a security concern. Most companies that I've worked for would not like their content development on someone else's equipment, and so readily available via the cloud interface. I know that the cloud model is the big thing right now, but for many security conscious organizations, it isn't always the best way to go.

It would be nice if there was a development environment where we could develop "Rise" type content from the local PC. For now, I think I'm going to have to stay with Storyline.
