The Importance of Cloud Computing

Do you want to drastically improve your business security? Year after year cloud computing users continue to increase and for good reason. Remember that WannaCry ransomware attack that occurred in May, which affected over 230,000 computers in over 150 countries? Many of the WannaCry victims included hospitals, banks, telecommunications companies, and warehouses. It goes to show that this can happen to anyone. It scary to think that you could easily lose everything on your computer system.

The solution is simple. Shift from your traditional local storage and into the cloud. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Microsoft Azure Cloud, it’s an integrated cloud computing service that businesses of all sizes use to host applications, store data, and protect sensitive backups in datacenters around the globe. It’s affordable, scalable, and secure. If that isn’t enough to convince you, here are 3 more reasons why your data is safer in the Cloud:

1. Managed by Experts

How many of your employees are actually qualified with the intensive knowledge of cyber security? If you spend the time to learn about cyber security, will you be ready in the event of an attack? As Canada’s largest Azure Cloud Service Provider, we’ve set the industry standard on how to use the Cloud in your business to get you the best performance and save you the most money. In the end, our Cloud experts will manage your needs from end-to-end so you don’t have to worry about hiring expensive in-house IT resources, or purchase any new server hardware.

2. Controlled Access

Your data is no longer at the mercy of natural disaster or third-parties who might “accidentally” wreak havoc. The term “controlled access” means when the data is stored off-site in the Cloud, there is a lack of physical access between the employees, vendors, and visitors. That makes it difficult for third parties to find your data and abuse it. Microsoft’s security protocols will ensure only you know how your data is stored and accessed.

3. 80% of Fortune 500 companies use Microsoft Azure

Although you may not be part of the Fortune 500, isn’t a comforting feeling to know that 80% of the Fortune 500 companies trust the Microsoft Cloud? If major corporations trust Microsoft Azure, why not follow in their footsteps. The Cloud is suited to your needs, so you’ll have the same safeguards as the Fortune 500 companies, but won’t pay the Fortune 500 prices.
In the end, your goal should be to a develop and implement a technology strategy that makes you feel managed and protected. Therefore, the experts at 360 Visibility will help you design, deploy, and manage your cloud servers, hosting, and storage for unparalleled security, performance, reliability, and scalability, all while saving you on traditional hardware, utilities, and IT costs.
