How Secure is the Cloud for Your Business?


If you're thinking about moving your business to the cloud, a natural question you might have is how secure the cloud really is. Let's take a look at how secure the cloud can be and the benefits of moving your business to the cloud.

So, to answer the question - very. Today's enterprise data centers are some of the most secure facilities on Earth - really. The lengths that Google, Amazon and other cloud providers go to in order to secure and protect your data is extraordinary. If you're worried about someone accessing your data directly, forget about it.

All the major cloud platforms also offer advanced account protection through protocols such as Two-Factor Authentication and other verification steps. Additionally, they allow granular control of employee accounts so that you can be sure they are only accessing the data and tools your have authorized.

On top of physical and digital protection, cloud providers automatically backup all your data, settings, files, email, and more - often making multiple backups which are stored in different locations for even greater security and integrity.

Even if your business has special requirements, from HIPAA to ISO, you can still benefit from the cloud with solutions such as G Suite.
