Do You Know Who Sees Your Data Once It’s In the Cloud?
Technology is evolving and so should your business. As the years go by, the virtual world is making the life of a business owner a little easier and cloud computing is a contributing factor. You are now able to access your data anytime, anywhere, from any device. Being able to focus on your business while letting someone else run your datacenter can be a huge relief.
But, there is one worry many cloud users tend to have, and that’s security. It’s troubling not knowing if your most sensitive data is hidden and protected from outsiders. This is where end-to-end encryption plays a key role.
Sure, there might be an option to encrypt within the cloud, but this gives those at the cloud base the ability to access your most privy information. You should be encrypting your files before transferring to the cloud, and then only you will have access to the key or passphrase.
You won’t have to worry about your data being compromised when you do it yourself. You also have full control over the files you encrypt and only you can access those files and read the contents.
