In this article, we will discuss about what is cloud and is the cloud safe ?
What is cloud?
The cloud is not in the sky or the ether. This is a network of servers all over the world. These servers basically do the heavy lifting that individuals and companies may not be interested in.
Cloud servers can store data, calculate data, and allow people to access applications and files across different devices. That's because the information is not stored on their devices; it is stored on servers in the cloud servers.
The cloud enables you to utilize power and storage beyond the normal capabilities of your device.
Small businesses do not need to build external computing infrastructure to run their companies. They can take advantage of the infrastructure already built by the cloud provider. Although businesses usually have to purchase and implement the maximum amount of computing power they may need, cloud providers usually let you "pay as you go", so you only pay for what you use.
This graph shows the financial advantage of using the cloud.
Is the Cloud Safe?
Naturally, you may worry about passing your sensitive files into the hands of a third party. Will they protect my data? What if the cloud server fails? Will my data disappear? Can't hackers penetrate the cloud more easily than accessing my hard drive?
Major cloud companies such as Huawei Cloud, Alibaba cloud, iCloud, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, and IBM have taken measures to provide first-class security.
The fact is that if you are not careful, hackers may infiltrate your hard drive. Through phishing scams, malware, or ransomware, they can perform actions such as freezing your computer until you meet their requirements or keep your sensitive information for a ransom.
But cloud providers have taken many steps to provide a higher level of security than ordinary people implement.
Common Security Measures
Here are some of the security measures that most cloud services provide:
File encryption. Files stored on cloud servers are encrypted. That means the data is scrambled, making it much more difficult for hackers to access.
Firewalls. Cloud data is stored behind a protective firewall. These firewalls filter out any suspicious network activity, making it more difficult for hackers to slip in malware or viruses.
Data Back-ups. All of these walls and security precautions sound nice, but what if the cloud servers fail? Won’t all of my data get lost in an instant? Not necessarily. Cloud services generally back up your data in multiple different locations. This way, if one server fails, you can still access your data from a different location.
Security Updates. You probably get little pop-ups all of the time that nudge you to update your security program. Do you always click on it? Or do you procrastinate until it’s convenient? Cloud companies always ‘click on it,’ and by doing so, help protect your information against the latest viruses and malware.
No system is 100% secure, but the cloud infrastructure almost achieves this goal. Parking data is safe in the cloud.but some precautions must be taken to ensure that everything goes smoothly. It is also important to comply with the regulatory and compliance requirements required by the law.
