How Secure is the Cloud?

Organizations migrating to a new IT environment, such as the Cloud, should always give serious consideration to the security of that environment. But how secure is the Cloud? If you don’t know exactly what piece of hardware your private data is found on at a given time, how do you know it is secure?

For those relatively new to Cloud, the first thing to be aware of is that while some of the tools and methods used to secure a network and data in the Cloud are different, the basic principles are the same as for any other environment. The next thing to know is that because the Cloud runs in data centers staffed by experts in Cloud services, data stored in the Cloud is “probably more secure than conventionally stored data,” according to Quentin Hardy, former Deputy Technology Editor of the New York Times[i].

How Does Employee Monitoring Software Provide HIPAA Compliance?

Inside the healthcare industry is an abundance of sensitive and valuable data. This has created a massive attack surface.

Adnan Raja June 4, 2018 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

5G. It’s coming. But when? And what exactly is it?

A staggering amount of people in the US think that 5G is just a better, faster version of Internet for their phones and Internet-capable devices.

5G is no technology at all; it’s simply the shortened name for the 5th Generation of mobile network that at some point will be ushered on to the scene and become the latest wave of telecommunications infrastructure reform. What that technology will actually be is still not completely defined as companies at home and abroad race to be the first to master a solution that can be successfully mass-produced.
