Why is cloud computing an issue for some businesses?
Some businesses fear using cloud-based computing systems because they feel there is ambiguity among its security features. Business data is not located on premise, so company’s feel they can’t ensure the protection of their data since they are relying on an outsourced server. However, what most businesses don’t realize is that cloud-based computing is a lot more secure than on-premise based data storage systems. In this blog I will take a closer look at Cloud-based security and also all the other benefits of using cloud-based servers.
Why SMB’s should start using cloud-based servers
Cloud computing provides your business with increased security in many areas. With cloud-based software employees cannot freely access, share, and download data information without permission. Sage cloud based software sets permission requirements so employees must have authorization to access certain information and must be approved to share certain information. Also with this software, company information stays on your server and can be accessed remotely, but cannot be downloaded to other devices. So employees would be blocked from downloading data onto devices like USB’s in an effort to prevent data theft.
However, despite such great security features to protect your business’s information, cloud computing offers other benefits as well. Since with cloud-based software you do not store your data information in-house, you are less likely to lose data based on equipment problems like corrupted files, fires, water damage, and all other issues that could destroy your data through software tampering on premise. With a cloud system, all of your information is backed up through the use of redundant servers. This means that all of your information will never be destroyed as it’s backed by multiple systems. Additionally, all of your data and information will be accessible through one central location. So say goodbye to data scattered across multiple platforms!
