Although it regards data security, companies may still feel insecure about the cloud. A study by Accenture reveals that 72% of the companies believe that protection is the main issue regarding the cloud. Contrary to what many people think, the migration to cloud is extremely safe, once it goes along with the digital transformation advances in the market and, consequently, real threats.

In this context, the cloud providers offer many certifications of data security, identity control, encrypted communication and processes, network protection, threat management, and transparency. Not only are you able to track where your data is stored but they also fulfill a wide range of international compliance rules, specifically from industries.

How to really ensure data security after all?

There are 5 main factors that make a difference when it comes to data safety in the cloud.

Advanced firewalls: Every firewall has an important role, which is to monitor data traffic on the network. The most simple ones basically check the source and destination data, on the other hand, the advanced ones check the integrity of the content and evaluate security threats.

Intrusion detection: Cloud storage may serve many users at the same time. Because of that, security systems are highly qualified and managed by many access detection levels, which ensure cloud providers to stop intrusions in the initial levels of the network defense.

Event log: Help security analysts to understand threats that may occur through improper accesses. These logs identify every action in the network and can be used to look back at the events in it. This helps prevent security breaches.

Encrypted data: This resource keeps data safe from unauthorized users. Thus, if an intruder steals an encrypted file, access to it will be denied due to a key. In other words, the data will be useless without this secret key.

Physical security: Data centers in the cloud are highly safe when compared to the “at home” models. If you use one of the complete cloud services, as the ones offered by Sky.One , certifications and 24/7 monitoring is ensured, as all the management and environment responsibility.

Adopting global awareness to all employees, promoting internal content regarding this topic, as courses about cybersecurity (Phishing, Ransomware, Data Security, LGPD), for example, is important to the companies. On the solution providers side, it is necessary to reinforce the commitment to security. Lastly, the IT team awareness/education so the protection layers are even more robust.

With the recent arrival of the LGPD, data security is a top priority for organizations. According to a study by IDC , almost 60% of companies approach this topic strategically.

When talking about cloud computing, security is a priority. Once your data is in the cloud, providers will keep your data safe, in other words, hackers or ransomware attacks are practically impossible in the cloud. After all, your data will be stored in the world's safest clouds. In a local server, besides the risk of attacks, your data can also be lost due to external factors: Blackout, Excessive heating of machines, among others.
