A HEALTHY CLOUD REQUIRES 3 VITAL ELEMENTS TO FUNCTION PROPERLY.
Your cloud is your friend, but even best friends have their faults. While it’s certainly true that cloud storage offers benefits such as increased flexibility, it does come with some inherent drawbacks. If any one of
these three components are compromised, it becomes impossible to access your own data.
Though your cloud may feel safe from harm, it is by no means immune to physical threats. Natural disasters like a fire or flood can completely disrupt your access to sensitive data by damaging your or your service provider’s hardware. A single accidental server failure can mean data corruption or even complete data loss.
While physical threats are very real for your cloud, the greater danger lies in cyber attacks. More than 4,000 ransomware attacks have occurred every day since the beginning of 2016. It is estimated that by 2021 cyber crime could reach $6 trillion annually. Small businesses are not the only ones suffering from these attacks. Major information-based companies, such as Equifax in 2017, have been hacked in the past. These cyber attacks will only increase in the coming years.
Is your cloud strong enough to withstand these attacks?
Obviously, a single approach to data security and storage is not enough. Complementing your cloud storage with Phoenix files or safes means your irreplaceable records and data are impervious to every form of cyber attack. Not only are these records secure, they are now easily accessible – allowing you to continue working, even when your cloud does not.
