When you think of “the cloud” you may be guilty of believing your data is being processed and stored in the air around you, magically retrievable by absolutely anyone. That’s because when you use the cloud, you aren’t saving data locally to your device. Instead, you’re sending your data to a cloud service provider, one that could be hundreds or even thousands of miles away and trusting them to keep it safe. Of course, you might be worried about security, but the reality is that cloud security is miles ahead of any other option on the market right now. The tightening of security was a precursor to the 2010 rush when many businesses across the globe decided to start moving locally stored data from on-premises servers to cloud-based solutions. This switch already made sense from a staffing and budgeting perspective. Today, cloud security has continued to advance along with the technology it supports as well as to keep up with new security threats as they come up. However, many business decision makers still get nervous when we propose a move to the cloud; they don’t trust the cloud, but they do have full trust in the one guy who controls their firewall? Go figure.
