With so much discussion and debate about whether to use cloud or on-premise solutions, it can be difficult to decide. In this new blog & video series, I'm helping narrow down the top 6 things to consider before making this important decision for your business. Today, I'm covering Consideration #1: Security.
We’ve all seen news reports about hackers accessing confidential information. Security is not only an important decision to avoid becoming that type of statistic, but also one that may be government regulated. Depending on your industry, market, and location, you may have to abide by an array of rules determining how you use and store sensitive data. In some cases, as we often see in healthcare and financial services, sensitive data can require private data centers. Cloud security has come a long way, though, and is arguably as secure as most private data centers. In either case, security (and regulations of your industry) is something to think about when considering cloud and on-premise.
Stay tuned for the next post when I discuss Consideration #2: Data Access.
