Three reasons why the cloud is more secure than your legacy systems.

New things can be scary. Especially with the way we handle our data. Before embracing a new platform, feature or technology we tend to worry at first. When it comes to cloud computing it isn’t any shock that the same thing seems to be true. Despite the fact that more than half of small to medium sized businesses use the cloud for storage there is still a good amount of confusion and even some uneasiness.

Security

This is the first of a few concerns people often have. A legacy system can be historically hard to access and because of its limited access, often hackers were blocked from getting into the system unless they were specifically on site. Today many companies use them in tandem with cloud infrastructure and backup services. This means that those systems which were previously secure because of their limited access are now often easily accessible. Its flaw was once its best feature and today that feature has vanished out from under you. A locked door is no longer the only access point to these systems.

Cloud providers like ASPnix have physical data centers with armed security, redundant backup systems, cameras, and more. All activity is monitored and only authorized personnel come and go.

Limited Access

Cloud data is stored at a data center which keeps it geo-located separately from the data you have at your office. This means its more difficult to get all of the pieces of a puzzle and makes mission critical data harder to put together with stored cloud data. Human risk decreases and its harder for anyone to stumble onto data that can be used negatively.

Cyber Security

Due to the nature of things, obviously your information is more secure when you have professionals watching over it. ASPnix provides free antivirus, hardware firewall and other nice security features that can help keep you safe.

Backup

Redundancy is key and backups, power systems, accessibility all need to be 100%. Trusting professionals in a datacenter is a great way to have your cake and eat it too. Limiting the amount of responsibility on your part while also getting a better way to store your data, more accessibility without costing you more money.

To sum up what I am saying. Migrating to a cloud option with a company like ASPnix is a great way to save money, get more out of your data, have better access to your data, control how it can be accessed easily, increase your security and to make sure it stays backed up without dealing with the hassles and issues and threats you may have with your legacy systems.
