Every day more companies are convinced of the advantages of saving their data in the Cloud. These companies have clear benefits in terms of agility, scalability, and cost savings.
However, security remains a concern that shows no signs of diminishing. According to a Crowd Research Partners survey, nine out of ten cybersecurity professionals say they are concerned about cloud security. The three main individualized challenges are protected against data loss and leakage, threats to data privacy, and breaches of confidentiality.
Not Saving Your Data In The Cloud Is Risky
Even so, the evidence shows that not saving our data in the Cloud is very risky. Every day, both external and internal threats increase, and the consequences of suffering an attack or a massive loss of data can lead our company to bankruptcy.
The cyber-attacks become more frequent and sophisticated and exploit computer vulnerabilities that are not able to detect or predict.
Finally, the human factor should be taken into account, since often, personnel with little awareness of security precautions are the gateway to malware that can affect the entire organization.
Why Saving In The Cloud Is Safer
Despite the concerns that the Cloud arouses, saving in the Cloud is still safer than not. A recent Alert Logic study shows that companies that store their data in their physical facilities experienced 51% more security incidents than those that rely on the public Cloud. The HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen9 is an ideal option for the best expandability and performance at your big and small enterprise.
This is easily understandable if we consider that large Cloud providers have much more resources to devote to security than a small business. In addition, they have every interest in offering safe services to their customers. These providers:
They can ensure more physical security for their data centers, implementing advanced access control measures, incident recovery systems, and much more careful management of their assets.
They provide more confidentiality by implementing data encryption and other unauthorized access control measures.
They ensure better control of data access thanks to security protocols implemented in the HPE SimpliVity 380 Gen10 or through encrypted channels.
They guarantee a high level of availability thanks to the redundancy of their systems, which ensures protection against physical failures of specific components.
Finally, although a cloud provider will manage our data better than we can do, you always have to exercise caution and be informed about the conditions of service, to choose the most appropriate provider. It is important to understand that saving our data in the Cloud does not mean stop worrying about them, but assume that the responsibility is shared between our provider and us.
