Cloud Files, Storage and Backup
Using the cloud for storage is easy, safe, cost-effective and reliable. It makes remote access simple as well as ensuring that files, worked on from any device, are always backed up.
Cloud storage works in a simple way. Instead of saving your files onto your PC, or backing up to an external hard drive, you save them online on a high end server, in a data centre, with a service level agreement. This lets you access them from any computer by logging into your online account. If you update a file from one computer, you'll see the changes on another PC or device.
No matter how much you love your laptop, PC or other device, nothing is as important as the data you have saved on the hard drive. If you lose or damage your device, you could potentially lose thousands of important files. By backing up these files to the cloud instead of a hard drive within the device, they're saved in a secure location. Even if your device is lost, damaged or stolen, you will still be able to access your original files from a new computer.
One of the best things about cloud storage is the flexibility it gives you for sharing and editing your files. With a file saved online to the cloud, you can share it directly with others via a link or an email invitation. You can even password protect files so only those with the password can access them. Supporting software (such as Office 365) will also allow you to edit documents online in the cloud without having to download it back to your PC and open it in a programme first.
Security and identitiy is easy managed through the cloud. Passwords, access controls, secure links and attachments in emails can all be accessed and monitored to stop breaches before they escalte in severity. Devices are managed through one simple dashboard so that data protection is always up-to-date. In addition, better protection for business data, guards against accidental sharing and security all improve GDPR compliance.
