Is the Cloud Secure?

Many people are skeptical that the cloud is secure due to lack of knowledge about the technology and measures to protect the data from within. In the United States, more than 90% of enterprises and 52% of small and medium sized businesses use the cloud specifically for storage. In reality, many professionals perceive the cloud to be quite secure as compared to legacy platforms which are on-premise back-up, storage and computing systems. This was confirmed in a survey of IT professionals of medium to enterprise level companies conducted by Clutch. 64% said that the cloud is more secure than legacy systems. In fact, CFO’s are also jumping onboard. According to Forbes Magazine, 74% of Tech Chief Financial Officers (CFOs) say cloud computing will have the most measurable impact on their business in 2017.
