People often share concerns around the security of keeping business data in the cloud. The truth is, however, your data is often more secure in the cloud than on a local server.

This is because the majority of cloud providers employ enterprise-level security systems that go well beyond what the typical small business can provide.

It’s in their best interest to keep your data secure, so you can rely on 24/7 support from dedicated teams of security experts, and rest easy with ongoing software and hardware update support.

I often hear small business owners say that data security is not a priority they can afford, but in the event of a natural disaster or fire, having your data in the cloud means productivity doesn’t need to be affected. With all your information securely stored off-site – you’re back up and running as soon as you have access to the internet.
