Trust and Security in the Cloud

It is undeniable that cloud computing has a tremendous impact in delivering greater business flexibility and at times lowering IT costs. While we see more companies joining the Cloud, Cloud computing and Cloud data security is still often questioned and under scrutiny.

The advantages of the Cloud are visible, it provides data flexibility and creates new opportunities in the way businesses offer services and share information. The digital conversion of company processes is palpable, making businesses much more agile, but even with all these advantages, companies are still cautious when approaching Cloud solutions.

A PwC report from 2011 clearly reflects concerns that still exist today. Security is as usual front and center, but availability, data privacy, and integrity are also factors that companies worry about when considering the adoption of a Cloud service.

In the competitive world of today, companies need to trust their cloud providers with their data security. Whether it is protecting their shareholder investments or making sure that company data remains at all times confidential, there is a certain amount of trust that needs to be put on the cloud provider.
