Cloud workloads Smart journey to the cloud environments
The IT market is changing very dynamically. And now, solutions based on cloud environments can vastly improve the functioning of IT infrastructure. However, the issue of data security is still on the side of the client and it is one’s duty to protect them. Why? Companies that provide infrastructure are not the owners of your data. Data is your property.
New applications can change the landscape of a given industry in a very short time. The cloud, with its flexibility and scalability, offers new opportunities to build a competitive advantage on the market. Mainly through facilitation and shortening the time of realizing current business needs. The efficiency of these solutions means that more and more businesses are transferring their infrastructure to the cloud, supporting themselves with additional opportunities. More and more businesses are using IaaS, BaaS, DRaaS, PaaS, SaaS and other services offered by cloud providers. The IaaS market is expected to be the fastest-growing public cloud services segment worldwide.
Cloud is an ideal solution for organizations that want to improve access to resources and infrastructure tailored to their needs
Private, hybrid, public or free?
Business users often store their data on free apps such as Dropbox, Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive not realizing this practice is associated with the high risk of data leakage. What’s more, the Cloud File Sync/Share is not considered as backup. Storware highly recommends to use trusted cloud services. MSPs such as Oktawave offer standardized contract agreements and assure the highest data security level proven by ISO 27001 certificate. Choose wise and always make sure the provider offers high data security standards. The cost of data leakage can be fatal for the business.

The another solution is private cloud, providing certainty of both proper data protection policies (if applied) and physical place where data is stored. Using a private cloud in your organization gives centralized and controlled data access. The question of the infrastructure and maintenance costs is open to managers. The mixture of two above models is hybrid cloud.
Cost of data leakage
The cost of data breach is growing issue. The latest security reports state that amount of unknown malware targeting businesses has grown nine times in the past year. There were almost 12 million new malware variants discovered every month. The entire last decade didn’t have as many malware as we’ve had in the last two years. Endpoints are usually the starting point for threats, and email is being used for attack in 75% of cases. Every month one can hear news about millions of credentials stolen belonging to users of global IT service providers. The implementation of proper data protection policies in the organizations is a must now.
