Cloud security consists of a set of policies, procedures and technologies that work together to protect cloud-based systems, data, and infrastructure. These security measures are configured to protect cloud data, support regulatory compliance and protect customers’ privacy, as well as to set authentication rules for individual users and devices. It has become one of the keys to keeping a business healthy and competitive in the modern business environment. Almost every business you can think of is using public cloud services for many of their critical business applications. We’re all familiar with Google G-Suite, AWS, Azure, Office 365, Salesforce, Dropbox, etc. As cloud security has evolved, the security needs for all businesses have changed. Cloud security monitors and protects all data stored in the cloud, along with the accounts to login and gain access to the data.
But Why Is Cloud Security So Important?
Without cloud security, companies and individuals are risking all of the data they use, and the integrity of the company they work for. It is so crucial to have a team that constantly is monitoring for potential threats, and making sure that your systems are always up to date. Some businesses are still backing up to tapes or at a nearby off-site location. If there is a local disaster, this could result in both backups being lost. Cloud security prevents this issue, as the data is stored in remote locations, protecting your business from the threat of data loss.
Cloud security is important for both business and personal users. Everyone wants to know that their information is safe and secure and businesses have legal obligations to keep client data secure. Security is an essential element of your iCloud service and you should always check that your service provider can provide the correct levels of security for your industry.
