Are you nervous about trusting your data to a cloud services provider? You shouldn't be. While it may seem counterintuitive to put your faith in someone outside the four walls of your business, the cloud services industry has been working overtime to make sure they live up to the confidences businesses place in them.
Listing your top concerns is a good place to start when outlining your security strategy. After you've done so, a quick reality check may result in a moment of sober reflection. Do you have adequate in-house resources to address your security vulnerabilities? We've all learned the hard way that correcting some security issues isn't enough to keep hackers away.
A competent cloud services provider won't have a problem with your list of concerns. Here's why:
1. They know they're a target. Cloud services providers recognize the value of the data they're protecting, and they know the efforts to steal it are relentless. They also know that even one data breach could spell the end of their business. Their proactive approach to security means they're on top of today's threats and already preparing for tomorrow's.
2. They have the resources. Let's face it. You'll need a lot of cash if you want to employ an IT team with the required skills to deal with the security issues businesses face today. Cloud services providers have the infrastructure and latest IT skills to deliver robust document solutions and document management that keep your data backed up and secure.
3. IT is their field. If you're reading this blog post, chances are IT is not your primary business. By offloading your document solutions to an expert services provider, you can get your mind off security and back where it should be—on growing your business.
