If your business hasn’t started using the cloud to it’s full potential, then why not? Cloud storage systems like DropBox offer countless benefits for your IT solutions – whether you’re a high-tech business or not. We’re going to look at why the Cloud has become huge in recent years.
Every time you run out of storage with traditional computer networks – you have to go and buy some more hard drive space. This isn’t only expensive, it’s also inconvenient and time consuming. Some businesses find they actually start to run out of office space for all their disk space! Cloud storage gets round this problem with ease. You don’t have to go out and buy a new hard disk every time you need it, let along take a few hours out to install it. Just click a button, and automatically upgrade some more space on your cloud. Simple.
The cloud is secure
Unlike keeping all your important files and documents on stand-alone computers – the cloud has tons of security options. If you look after your own computer storage network, you’ll have to make sure all security updates are installed yourself. With the cloud, that’s all taken care of for your buy the service provider, remotely. Every update installed with ease – you might not even notice it.
DropBox encryption services like Sookasa offer an almost unparalleled range of additional security features which could take your protection to the next level. By installing Sookasa, you can remotely protect, monitor and update all the files on your network. That means if someone loses a connected laptop, you can revoke access to the files on the cloud from that computer – making sure only the right people have access to the right files at the right times.
Fully compliant cloud security systems make storage arguably much safer than keeping things under a lock and key. You can monitor access to files, and make it so only certain people can do so at certain times. Previously, if you lost a laptop or a folder with a load of important documents in them, whoever got them can now read them. Not with DropBox security – now you can “switch off” access to those files with ease, remotely. This also prevents security breaches when you lose members of staff.
The cloud takes collaborative projects to the next level
Let’s face it – sharing files used to be difficult. Now it’s easy with the cloud. Working alongside colleagues in different locations has never been easier. Now you can collaborate on the same project and access the same files remotely, in real time. No more sending files over restrictive email accounts – or copying things to disk. The cloud takes remote working to the next level – meaning you can let your employees work from home or communicate with a wide range of clients.
The cloud has really taken computer storage systems into the 21st century. Along with the efficiency savings and productivity benefits it offers your business – you can now make sure your cloud is fully secure.
