Data security in home vs the cloud

Despite the increase within companies, in the adoption of uploading information to the cloud, many of them continue to doubt their reliability and prefer to do it in a "more secure" way within their servers.

The biggest concerns of companies, ranging from privacy and loss of personal data, to security breaches, is why some companies don’t want to transfer control of their data to the Cloud.

Here are some aspects that may be important in the decision to transfer this data to the cloud vs security at home.

Better defense capabilities

The success of "the cloud" providers, lies in the employment and training of large trained teams to manage the gigantic internal data infrastructure.
The quality of experience needed to administer and operate "the cloud" overshadows the experience that most individual companies can have.
The setbacks due to the lack of security experience "in home" compete against the vulnerability protection and the "the cloud" infrastructure.

Safe Development

Over the years, a local solutions have been developed, but when the new security requirements arise, the solution managers are forced to update all their systems completely, and with this, being one step behind the updates due to time issues.

The development cycle for solutions in "the cloud" dictates: the security develops in the solution, from the beginning.

Especially in older legacy systems, the concerns of some of the data security issues were not considered in their initial stages of implementation.

Everything in "the cloud" infrastructure, from software solutions to monitoring systems and infrastructure management processes, is designed with data security in mind

Continuous audit.

A good provider of "the cloud" performs continuous audits, monitoring and security tests in all operational aspects of the infrastructure, to ensure greater reliability in the solutions it offers.

The continuous audit ensures security for all software updates to the latest version, identifies and renews all the problems in the performance of the systems and verifies the necessary security compliance.

The constant monitoring identifies, investigates and resolves any irregular behavior in the systems.

Automation and Repetitiveness

The infrastructure of "the cloud" is designed for automation, using less manual intervention and fewer opportunities for error.

The design tasks carried out by this automation are limited and standardized, as are most of the hardware, network equipment, operating systems and applications used to facilitate information security.

The principles of automation and repeatability are essential in the implementation of new IT systems.

More stringent access controls

The loss of data control is the main concern of companies if they are outside their firewall.

This concern extends to believing that employees of "the cloud" have full access to the confidential information of the company.

A good provider of "the cloud" properly manages the roles of responsibility in their employees, without any person having the level of access necessary to threaten the security and confidentiality data of their customers.

The myth that local infrastructure is more secure than "the cloud" crumbles when gaps occur behind the firewalls of companies and their own employees.

The data in the cloud on the contrary, can reside in several servers and locations, instead of a single dedicated server to the local network and with this achieve a better control of security without exclusive accesses.

"The cloud" offers fewer interruptions in service, faster recoveries and reduced downtime for companies.

Staff monitoring 24/7 allows to identify and resolve problems more quickly. Automation and continuous audits ensure that viruses, patches and threats are quickly identified and updated within the entire network, perhaps faster than local IT staff.

These are some viabilities and competences that you can take in mind to change to "the cloud" or continue with the same "security in home" with which you have up to now. We recommend talking to an expert about the advantages your company needs.
