Cloud has been a buzzword in IT for the last few years. In fact, there are aspects of cloud computing many people find confusing. We have come across a few myths we want to debunk for you today. Here are the top three cloud myths we have seen the most and the truth you should know.
Everyone can access your data
The Truth: When you partner with a reputable cloud storage provider, your data will stay secure. There are numerous ways data is protected including encryption, firewalls and data backup. Having proper data backup might be the most important step an organization can take in protecting its information. Hackers and cyber-criminals are getting smarter and stronger every day. By replicating and backing up data in the cloud, users are able to get back up and running quickly in the event a disaster strikes.
Data kept on site is safer than the cloud
The Truth: Having all of your information on site, with your own server, might seem safe because it’s tangible. However, the requirements for maintaining network security, on site, is demanding and costly. It’s safer to keep data in the cloud. With cloud applications, security features are built in and are updated in real-time. This allows users to work with the latest updated applications with the most up-to-date security features.
Everything must move to the cloud
The Truth: When an organization takes its first steps into cloud computing, many start with a hybrid approach. For example, they move a single application, such as email, and grow from there. This is a great way for users to become more comfortable with the cloud and allows providers a great way to show the capabilities and scalability of cloud computing.
The cloud has long been a benefit for large organizations but now, small and medium size businesses have the same advantages at their fingertips! Reduced costs, improved security, scalability and access from anywhere are just a few examples. If you are interested in learning more about YYTECH’s Cloud offerings contact us
