What is the cloud and is it safe?

| Blog, Technology Insights

It’s the kind of question you’d think would be easy to answer, until someone asks you:
What exactly is the cloud?

The cloud refers to networks of secure servers located all over the world. Cloud companies like Minder Cloud Services, Microsoft, Google and Apple build and maintain these cloud networks that can allow your business to:

  • Store data for quick access across different devices
  • Use powerful software even on older devices
  • Reduce IT infrastructure investment and ongoing maintenance costs
  • Scale resource up or down as your needs change

So, is the cloud safe?

The answer is – it depends. 

Whilst there’s no technology that is 100% safe – working with cloud providers is often safer than running things on your own network. Simply because they have dedicated teams of security experts.

You should also focus on making sure your business’s use of the cloud is safe too.

Make sure you:

  • Never ever share logins (even amongst your team members)
  • Use randomly generated passwords protected by a password manager
  • Keep all devices 100% up-to-date at all times with updates and Anti-Virus tools
