3 aspects of the cloud business owners need to look out for

Published:

Cloud computing is becoming widely accepted by businesses throughout the world, but company managers and owners should be sure to keep in mind the potential problems that can occur from implementing the technology. Marcie Terman, business development director at DataFort, shared some potential risk areas for businesses using the cloud with TechCloud9.

Stolen emails

More businesses than ever are using cloud email services, and because of this, computer hackers are working harder than ever to try to infiltrate company email. Many company emails are on a single server, which puts them at greater risk to be compromised. Keeping this in mind, businesses need cyber liability insurance to protect their cloud-based email services.

Will the cloud work for every business?

Businesses that have boatloads of information they want to store, and allow employees to view from anywhere should definitely look at using the cloud. However, there are some businesses that are not cut out for the cloud, like those who have too much data to afford online storage..

Cost-efficiency of the cloud

While many cloud services offer pay-as-you-go formats, businesses need to make sure they are using what they are paying for. To make sure this happens, businesses should map out their cloud deployment so they do not purchase too much or too little storage space.
