The area of enterprise technology known as hosted cloud computing services can be complicated for the uninitiated. To put it simply, it refers to storing data off-premises (in the cloud).
The advantage of storing data in the cloud rather than on your own premises is that it can be accessed from anywhere in the world on any computer. Businesses can also scale their cloud utilisation as their demand increases thanks to the versatility of cloud services.
Of course, you don’t want just anyone to be able to access your data. A company that wants to store its data in the cloud should also think about additional security measures to restrict and track who has access to it.
When storing consumer data in the cloud, there will be privacy and data security concerns to consider. This is especially important for industries like healthcare, law, and financial services that deal with sensitive consumer data.
These are just a few of the reasons why many companies have opted to work with a cloud specialist IT provider like Carden IT Services, which has extensive experience preparing and implementing hosted cloud solutions for a variety of businesses.
