How safe and reliable are Cloud Storage and data-sharing?

Cloud storage

Flop Proof?

How safe and reliable is cloud storage? Do you think cloud storage is hack free and watertight, or are you living with your head in the clouds? While cloud storage keeps your data secure from fires, floods, hurricanes and computer meltdowns, it is still vulnerable in the sense that it is in the hands of a third-party system.

Security measures are configured to protect cloud data, support regulatory compliance, protect customers’ privacy, and set authentication rules for individual users and devices. From authenticating access to filtering traffic, cloud security can be configured to the exact needs of the business.

But can we secure our data offline, and why should we?

Yes, absolutely!

Off-site cloud data backup tends to be more secure and reliable in comparison to traditional methods. The procedure for off-site cloud data backup is automated, which means all of your data will be backed up at regular intervals, typically every day or whatever works best for your business.

The best feature of an offline cloud backup is that they let you restore a system as per the last backup, and you can complete the restore far faster and more efficiently!

Cloud storage is more reliable when used in tandem with another storage system.

How can we use the Cloud for data-sharing?

Using shared files and storing them into Cloud data-sharing applications like Dropbox, SharePoint or One Drive,  you can ensure that anyone you give access to can quickly locate the files through a web-based platform.

Sharepoint is one of the best web-based collaboration platforms to use within a working environment. Benefits are such as easy data-sharing, centralised administration, improved data management and simplified business functions.
