Cloud computing has been gaining popularity in the business space over the last couple of years. Organizations are abandoning server-based data centers in favor of a third-party-provided solution. Nevertheless, we all know that as more data is stored digitally, the risk of hacking will increase. Companies are losing significant income to data breaches, and cybercriminals and hackers are developing new, sophisticated ways to steal valuable data.
For all of these risks, why are companies still moving their information to the cloud? Many executives and business owners want to push their businesses to the cloud but don’t fully understand how it works. As such, they may be wary of the idea of removing confidential information from complete corporate oversight. Yet, they did not know that the cloud is not as penetrable as its name might imply.
Losing data can be almost as harmful as having it stolen. When a server fails, or a hacker gains access to a corporate network and deletes essential information, companies can lose months of productivity and profits. Yet, if a business moves its data to the cloud, the data will still be secured. Since most cloud networks kept the data in at least three locations. In other words, cloud solutions ensure mission-critical data is accessible until the user no longer wants it.
2.Safe Sharing Policy
All cloud networks have a safe sharing policy. If you have ever used Google Docs or Google Sheets, then you know how file sharing works. Rather than making a copy, the user must invite individuals to view it. This means the user will need to enter the email address of any other individuals that want to see the file. These extra users can’t share the data on their own (unless given express permission); they have access to it. This is how safe sharing works. It prevents unauthorized copies from being created or distributed. Users have access to their data and can control exactly who sees it.
It provided a user to keep track of their password. It is challenging for a hacker to gain access to vital files and data. They are being stored either entirely in the cloud or at a secure, remote facility in an unknown location. Since the user's connection to this information is encrypted, a hacker can't have access to the data.
“Ninety percent of my threat landscape starts with a human, either maliciously or inadvertently, making a mistake that somehow compromises the security,” said Rathbun. “In an ideal state, we’re going eventually end up in a world where there’ll be zero human touches to an Azure production environment.”
Thus, we can state that cloud solutions are the safest form of data protection in today’s digital business space.
