The Cloud is becoming more and more popular by the day. There are many advantages that this type of computing can offer a business and here are three of the most prominent.
Top Drawer Security
When those working for a business use their own technological devices for their daily tasks, keeping everything secure can be challenging. If a smartphone or tablet gets stolen, then there is the possibility that it contained sensitive information regarding the company, and if a staff member leaves their employment, how can the business make sure they do not share information?
Thankfully there is a solution to this. As explained on the O2 blog, all that companies need to do is begin using the Cloud to store their information, rather than the actual devices of their employees. If Cloud-based Mobile Application Platforms are used to create apps, then the information can be stored in the Cloud itself and not be left on vulnerable devices.
The Cloud also offers businesses virtually unlimited storage space. As shown in the Cloud Computing Journal, because the Cloud is online the available space is not limited to the size of the premises or the number of servers and storage drives you can fit in your office. Instead, the Cloud allows data to be stored remotely and simply accessed when it is convenient. At other times, the amount of information is hidden away out of sight and out of the way.
Another prominent advantage of the Cloud is that it enables information to be accessed from different locations and on a range of devices. For example, employees can use their tablet to access information while at a client’s office or their smartphone to access data while they are travelling on a train. That way, employees can always be kept in the loop and can find it easy to work from home if necessary.
