Sage guide to security in the Cloud…

Sage_biggest_cloud_threatsWhen it comes to the concerns of both businesses and individuals in relation to the cloud computing revolution it’s fair to say that security will always crop up pretty close to the top of any list.

It seems that not a day passes without some form of data security breach appearing in the news and this has helped cultivate a lot of fear around both business and personal use of the Cloud. While the threats are possibly overblown by the media occasionally for the purpose of delivering a compelling story,  it is however only right that taking advantage of the power of the Cloud is tempered by the cautious approach necessary to keep yourself and your data safe.

Sage_safe_cloudWith this in mind our partners at Sage – and the software developer behind the Sage 200 Online cloud solution that we specialise in – have produced a great graphical guide to maintaining data security when using cloud computing services.

“Staying Safe In The Cloud” covers: The various types of cloud services along with the popular vendors/brands; The seemingly inexorable growth of cloud usage; The biggest threats to cloud security;  The top cloud security concerns amongst businesses; Practical steps you can take to stay safe when using the Cloud and the password policies that can stop professional hackers in their tracks.

It’s well worth a look so be sure to check it out…
