How safe is your data? Protect your data with Cloud Computing
Cloud computing is revolutionising the way businesses communication infrastructures are being designed and built.
However, many business owners have concerns around Cloud storage and security. Virtual servers allow Cloud IT providers to essentially run your infrastructure for you, and some businesses are uncomfortable with this perceived lack of control. This is even more the case if the business has its own on-premise server, with the ability to manage storage and backups in-house.
A number of high-profile security and data breaches, has further added to concerns, leaving customers and they reputations vulnerable. The good news is Cloud Computing is one of the safest ways to store data, here’s why:
It’s hard to hack the cloud
In comparison to traditional on-premises or data centre servers, it is relatively hard for hackers to break into a cloud-based infrastructure. Cloud-stored data is protected by a much more complex security system than locally stored data: it would require a very high level of technical expertise and a lot of time to break through.
Often, the reality behind reported cases of ‘hacking’ is that the weak link was actually individuals’ passwords, which present the opportunity for cyber criminals to calculate, or even guess, what they are.
Data can be encrypted before being sent or stored via a Cloud Computing system. This is done by using complex algorithms to lock and conceal data on the Cloud. In order for a would-be hacker to access this data, they would need to crack the encryption key, which is no easy task.
Hacking into encrypted data would take a huge level of processing power, specialised software and a great deal of time. Again, the superior level of layered security, which cloud computing builds into your infrastructure, makes trying to break in a laborious and unattractive proposition for cyber criminals.
Cloud Computing is the number one choice of infrastructure for the future. Since the year 2009, the global uptake of cloud computing has risen exponentially, and shows no sign of slowing down.
