One of the major concerns of businesses migrating to the cloud is that of security, and for good reason. A security breach is expensive.
Currently, most companies pay over 85% of their security IT budget on perimeter protection. However, this might not be the safest bet. Once the malware has breached the firewall of the security perimeter, it is easy to find open entry points.
This kind of data security breach has happened over and over again recently: from Target, Home Depot and Sony, to Equifax and Yahoo, victims are paying the price.
Direct costs evolve around the remediation necessary to avoid such attacks in the future. The staff and equipment costs are substantial. But the indirect costs really is what hurts the company.
Losing control over the security of the data of your business involves substantial legal costs, coupled with the increased costs related to PR and branding, in order to gain back the trust of customers. As a result, a security breach can mean considerable losses of market share to the competition.
So how can you switch to the cloud, reap the benefits of this technology, but make sure your business remains unharmed by cyber attacks?
The answer is really quite simple: Find the best provider of cloud solution services. Switching to the cloud means outsourcing your data management, infrastructure and applications to a third party. You want to make sure they safeguard your data as if it was their own.
You find the right provider by comparing their offerings, and understanding the features of tools that reduce costs and improve security.
