Cloud Providers Step Up To Address Security Issues
The advantages of profitability and scalability made available to businesses by the Cloud have been the driving factors in the move from on-premise data centers to storage on the internet via the cloud. As cloud computing swept the IT world over the past decade, some businesses are still nervous about placing sensitive customer information and tightly secured business applications somewhere other than their own data centers.
Cloud providers quickly realized that enhanced Security had to be foremost in their services to remove the one major tripping point for enterprises contemplating the move to the cloud. Strong security was mandatory to win the trust required to serve as an organization's online vault for sensitive data. Without that trust, a cloud provider can't stay in business for long.
