There has been a lot of talk about the security of the cloud computing system. Industry experts believe that using the cloud system could give-way to large security issues if badly implemented. “If badly implemented” being the key point there. The eagerness to compete with other organisations is causing companies rush the implementation of the cloud system. Popularity of the cloud amongst established companies is expected to skyrocket over the next few years. So we could be hearing of this scenario a lot more often in the future due to rushed system implementation.

But fear not! Indulge yourself in the sweet advantages of the cloud because it is not the system that’s the issue. In fact many experts have stated that cloud computing can actually increase security. From my understanding, the cloud system is not easily contaminated by viruses due to it being a “real-time” system. This means that the cloud system is slightly above your current level of security in terms of keeping out data-corrupting diseases.
That’s all good, but what about keeping out spying eyes? Because It’s similar to storing your data in a real cloud; you no longer control exactly who can access your precious data because it is being stored ‘somewhere up there’. So most importantly; do not store data within the cloud system only the processing should take place in the cloud. Here at Carkean Solutions we can implement your system in that way, so that it is both safe and secure
So if you are thinking about adopting cloud computing, don’t let rumours of its poor security put you off - Thanks for reading and as always feel free to leave any comments.
