Is the Cloud Secure? The Corbel Blog Written by Corbel on 21st November 2018. As data security becomes an increasing concern, it is understandable that businesses are questioning how secure the Cloud is. By understanding how the Cloud works and stores data, companies will be able to enjoy the multitude of benefits that it has to offer with the added reassurance that their data is safe. How Do Cloud Providers Store Data Securely? When data is stored in the Cloud, it is stored in secure datacentres. These datacentres are structured by skilled operatives who are experts in this specific field and are most likely to surpass your IT engineers’ knowledge. Datacentres have more resources than your current setup and have usually invested a large amount of money in security strategies to make it one of the most secure environments. Your data is held in a secure environment using best practice security measures suitable for an Enterprise environment. These hosts will also offer to apply a number of security strategies, such as two-factor authentication, patching, anti-virus and 24/7 monitoring ,which will add even more protection. How to Choose the Best Cloud Provider?
