The Cloud, is still something which we find is misunderstood by many businesses; big and small. At CNi Solutions, we work with our clients to guide them through the process of incorporating cloud solutions into their business proposition and that of their everyday workflow.
However, how does the cloud complement your current computer infrastructure; or indeed, how could it replace it? The cloud is becoming more and more mainstream in everyday business and social life and can offer some fantastic benefits to your business, in some ways. Imagine the ability to access your emails, documents, pictures and Files anywhere in the World, through any device with an internet connection and browser; that is the power of the cloud.
There are several important considerations, however, that need to be considered, such as the connection speeds at the office, or primary place of work; the type of business undertaken, as well as the continuity and disaster recovery policies of the organisation.
However, that is not the end of the story; we are also able to offer a hybrid system, where you can look to have the majority of your data held local, at your office, and perhaps your key documents, such as disaster recovery, held on your cloud proposition; or indeed your emails, through a Microsoft 365 account. The solutions are endless, and CNi Solutions are here to guide you every step of the way.
Obviously, an essential part of embracing the Cloud is ensuring that the data held within it is secure and that both you and your clients have peace of mind in using this platform.
Cloud security refers to diverse set policies (internal and external), certain technologies and controls that are deployed to protect data, applications, and associated infrastructure of a business’s cloud proposition and infrastructure. However, what does this mean?
There are two distinct aspects to consider with Cloud Security, the security issues faced by Cloud Providers, the infrastructure-as-a-service provider, and, the Security issues faced by cloud users (Our customers), those businesses and individuals who are physically storing data and applications on the cloud provider’s infrastructure.
The provider must ensure that their infrastructure is secure and that their clients’ data and applications are protected, while the user must take measures to fortify their implmentation and use strong passwords and authentication measures.
