Security has been one issue inhibiting cloud adoption, and the hubbub about PRISM only seems to have made it a bigger concern. That’s why we’ll talk about cloud security…

With Atlantic, we have strategically evolved into a leading cloud server hosting company based in the US and offer a wide variety of solutions from managed hosting, one-click applications and Windows and Linux Cloud Hosting.
