Many small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) invest a large amount of their budget into the technology side of their business to stay in control and place their corporate business tactics and proprietary information under lock and key. But is this information truly secure?
“Not as much as you might think,” says VyonCloud’s COO, Sandra Juarez. “Many SMBs are starting to realize the security side of their business technology is not as protected as they would like it to be. In-house servers can go down, backup can be mishandled, and despite all efforts to provide a strong, secure environment, the loss of confidential corporate and client information to hackers or fraudulent employees is a realistic risk.”
Let’s say you’re a highly regarded attorney, accountant, insurance agent, or health care provider. As a trusted resource for your clients, protecting their information is more than an important business practice, it is an ethical obligation as well as a serious regulatory violation if breached.
This is where cloud computing becomes a huge asset for small businesses. VyonCloud, a reputable cloud service provider, offers 24/7 physical and network security dedicated to combating hackers and any physical threats with consistent firewalls and onsite security personnel. Sensitive information is backed up daily and can be accessed anywhere with an internet connection.
Despite the cloud’s pervasiveness and many advantages, many businesses are still unsure about placing their business and clients’ data on third-party servers in remote locations.
According to Juarez, “That is exactly why a cloud provider makes sense for firms to consider. You need to put your data in the hands of somebody who knows what they’re doing, in a safer more secure environment.”
Small businesses who have an interest in the cloud don’t necessarily have to move their entire business there. VyonCloud offers a 15-day free trial to enable SMBs to give it a try and help them feel at ease with the process. “Our Application Cloud lets clients try the cloud in a risk-free environment by moving only their applications until they have a clear understanding about the cloud.” Says Juarez. “Many quickly see the benefits of remote accessibility to their programs and choose to do a complete migration once they understand the additional cost saving benefits that go along with outsourcing the management of a server versus maintaining one in-house.”
