Cloud servers offer many benefits to businesses, including the ability to scale up or down as needed, quick and easy access to technology resources, and the ability to store data remotely.
You can use as little or as much storage as you need, without having to worry about limitations or huge bills. Perfect for growing businesses.
Your team can access any data anywhere. Cloud servers were made for the hybrid work world we have today.
A large amount of space is not necessary to house big servers and other equipment. In fact, you can save a lot of room by using less space.
When using a cloud server, you must make sure it is properly secured.
A recent report has found that cloud servers are increasingly being used as an entry point for cyber criminals to launch attacks.
A huge 41% of businesses that have been hacked revealed their cloud server was how cyber criminals got in. This figure is increasing by 10% annually.
Why? Often, it’s because companies don’t invest as much into the security of their cloud servers as they should.
In technology as in life, you really do get what you pay for. Many of the free cloud servers available don’t provide the same level of security and encryption that paid-for services do. Often, they are less reliable as well.
It is important that your business conducts full research before choosing a cloud server to ensure that it meets all of your requirements and is as safe as possible. Better still, ask an expert to do this research for you (we can help). We also recommend a few standard security measures are always followed.
Password managers are a great way to encourage team security. By generating long random passwords for every login, your team will be more secure and less likely to fall victim to online attacks. Password managers store passwords and automatically fill login boxes, providing better security and convenience.
You should also provide regular cyber security training for everyone in your business. Business emails are the second most likely place an attack will start. The first line of defense should always be a human asking themselves “wait, does this look right?”
It’s never possible to prevent 100% of attacks. But if you take all the right steps to keep your business safe your chances of suffering a successful attack, go down dramatically.
