How The Cloud Boosts IT Security
The cloud has revolutionised the way companies approach IT security. It is no longer just down to taking physical backups on a USB stick or ensuring users change their password every few months. With the rise of cloud computing, businesses can now take advantage of security benefits that were previously unavailable, including the following:
- Centralised Management and Monitoring
With cloud computing, it is possible for the management and monitoring of security systems to be carried out centrally, making it easier to detect and respond to potential threats. With the monitoring and reporting being in ‘the cloud’ it also means we can access, identify, and make changes remotely without needing to attend site.
- Regular Software Updates
Cloud service providers are responsible for maintaining and updating the software and hardware used for their services. This means that businesses can benefit from the latest security features and software updates without having to worry about the cost and time associated with implementing them.
- Increased Reliability
Cloud systems are known for being incredibly reliable and having a good uptime percentage. We ensure this is always the case by using a top-rated cloud provider. This ensures that your business continuity is assured with a level of reliability and security that can be difficult to achieve with an on-premises solution.
- Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity
In the event of a problem, cloud computing provides businesses with a reliable solution for disaster recovery and business continuity. With cloud computing, you can quickly and easily access critical data and applications from anywhere, ensuring that the business operations can continue even in the face of unexpected disruptions.
- Scalable and Flexible
One of the biggest, often overlooked, advantage of the cloud is its ability to provide scalable and flexible security solutions. Traditional on-premises security can be rigid and difficult to scale, but cloud-based solutions can be easily adjusted to meet the changing needs of a business. This means that as a company grows, its security solutions can expand with it.
- Additional Security Features
Use of the cloud also provides several built-in security features, such as data encryption and multi-factor authentication that can help protect sensitive information from cybercriminals.
We work with a wide range of small to medium sized businesses and can actively adapt depending on your requirements at any given time.
The team at D8A IT Services are highly experienced in integrating cloud systems and have been actively managing the systems for a range of clients throughout London and the South East of England.
