Are Cloud-Based Applications Safe?
One way to think of Cloud Security is to compare it to money in your wallet vs. money in the bank. Think of your files and data as money. Money that is kept in your wallet is susceptible to being lost or stolen from you. On the other hand, money that is kept in a bank is securely stored and cannot be lost. Also, in the unlikely event of a bank robbery, the bank is responsible for making sure that all of your funds are still available to you.
The same can be said of Cloud app security. If you manage your own files and keep them stored in a local computer, anyone can go in and steal that information or your computer could fall victim to some natural disaster. However, when your files are stored in the Cloud, the Cloud providers will make sure that the servers are equipped with firewall security, backups, and disaster recovery. The number one concern of any Cloud app provider is security.
