More and more companies are moving to the Cloud, citing reasons such as convenience, cost and more – but what do you need to understand about Cloud security?
While the Cloud has many benefits, there are also a few basic things every business owner needs to understand before making the change.
What is Cloud security?
In a nutshell, it basically means switching from an on-premises hardware system to a Cloud system. The cloud holds all your company data, files and more and can be accessed by your company from anywhere. There are different types of cloud environments (public, private and hybrid) that you can choose from.
Why is it important?
It is is important because most businesses are already using it and even more will choose it in 2022. However, storing data in the cloud does have some compliance and security concerns – especially when it comes to data leaks or cyberattacks.
That’s why it’s important to choose a provider who knows how to best protect your assets.
What are the benefits?
The benefits of the Cloud — and security — are many: Lower costs, because you don’t have to pay for hardware or a team to manage your dedicated hardware. It also saves in operational expenses, as a Cloud service provider will do that for you – meaning you don’t need your own dedicated team.
The Cloud is also more reliable, flexible and available, in that any authorized user can access it quickly – and from anywhere.
Greater ability to scale
One of the key benefits to Cloud security is scalability. If you are a business owner and you are looking to scale your business, investing in the Cloud is the best option. The Cloud allows you to scale as your business grows – all while keeping your valuable data safe and protected.
