Cloud security, particularly for businesses, has become a much more reliable option than on-site data.
The cloud effectively eliminates a number of security concerns simply by virtue of being located off-site. Disasters, break-ins, and disgruntled employees have no access whatsoever to the physical servers that make up the cloud, and most cloud providers ensure that access to data is closely monitored, meaning that no one should be able to dump a bunch of company secrets onto a flash drive and walk out the door.
That said, special attention should apply to the security standards offered by the cloud provider, including measures to secure transmission and storage of data, as well as the physical security of the cloud provider data centre to control the access rights of employees.
For example, Salesforce is aware that the confidentiality, integrity and availability of our customers' data is critical to their business processes and our own success.
With our tiered approach to cloud security we protect the most important data, in which we monitor our application, systems and processes continuously and optimise them as needed so that they meet the increasing demands and safety requirements.
