The Cloud holds about 10% of the world’s data at present despite having many benefits. Cloud Services are cost effective and have added layers of security that traditional, in-house storage does not. Why are people still dragging their feet on switching over? It all comes down to security and trust. How can you trust an off-site data storage program handled by strangers? Today we’re going to talk about what makes Cloud security some of the tightest security available. Let’s get into it.
What makes Cloud security so powerful?
To answer this, we have to examine what makes a traditional storage system seem so secure. The answer is that there is “control.” You have control over the storage devices and therefore it seems like you have more control over the security. Be that as it may, Cloud services have some of the most brilliant minds in IT working on them, meaning that their hands, though not yours, are incredibly capable. Besides, at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter where your storage is located so much as who has access to it. Working with highly professional Cloud services teams is a great way to help keep your data secure.
New technology comes with several benefits.
One of the biggest things that makes the Cloud so scary is that it is new technology. However, it should be noted that because Cloud services are so new, they are being given a lot of attention by way of yearly security audits. Security audits are exceptionally important; they help us figure out which parts of the system we can fortify and improve. Traditional systems of storage often go a long time without audits, leaving them vulnerable. Though the Cloud isn’t perfect, it offers a lot in terms of security.
