How safe is cloud?

by asamits765 In reply to Is Cloud Hosting is Secur ...

Cloud security is achieved through the implementation of appropriate technologies and policies like it is for other IT environments. Those used to secure the Cloud, however, are suited to agile environments and are certified by independent specialized third-party auditors. These audits provide a measure of assurance to customers that their Cloud provider has internal processes and capabilities for managing security which meets stringent standards.

Cloud is “probably more secure than conventionally stored data”

Secure Cloud Hosting

by Dosarrest In reply to Is Cloud Hosting is Secur ...

Cloud data is shared over the interconnected servers which allow accessing of data from anywhere and at any time. As a result, it seems less secure. But, the cloud is not totally insecure. The cloud security is implemented by different policies which ensure the total security.

The answer to that question is

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to Is Cloud Hosting is Secur ...

How Important is the data you want to store?

When it comes to security there are way too many variables with little things that the Storage providers will not make mention of things like a Specific Country requiring Storage Providers to make the data available to the Government of the country that the data is stored in if requested and this is most commonly required on data from foregin sources.

When you take into account to be fully redundant some Cloud Storage Providers will store the data in several different countries so it is always available no matter what may happen in an indivual country the Total Security of the Data can be limited without breaching one line of the Storage Providers Claims to you the customer so when they say they are secure they are to the limit of the Laws in the Countries where they store your data.

Most countries require storage providers to allow them access to foregin Data when they request it so unless you know specifically where the data will be stored and the Laws of those Countries as well as your own country as there may be laws requiring Storage Providers to make available to your Government any data that they have transfered from your country things can become very murky.

Just remember all of the above doesn't even consider companies being bought out or going broke and then what happens to any data that they are storing at that point in time becomes very suspect as there can be no garantees what will happen to any data that they have on their servers at that point in time.

So to answer your question Yes The Cloud is as secure as the provider claims but the real question is what you you Consider as Secure and does it tally with what the Cloud Providers Claim?
