Over the course of several years, we have seen the transition of having a business handle their own software, databases, and other data storage at their own premises to moving this all to a cloud-based option that works just as well and provides access nearly anywhere that it is needed in Atlanta, McDonough, Fayetteville, Newnan, Griffin, GA, Johns Creek, and the surrounding areas.

Challenges to Cloud Security
With the transition to utilizing the cloud for a number of things, those who would try to do harm to organizations have also transitioned to attempting to break into the cloud servers. This is where it is important to review your cloud security with experienced professionals. There are several challenges that should be discussed and addressed.
One challenge is the lack of visibility for the things stored in the cloud because of the layers that need to be gone through to access the cloud. The organization’s network no longer houses the data, files, and other things and instead they must be accessed on a third-party network. This means it is harder to assess just who is accessing that data.
Because your information is housed under the same umbrella as other clients, if another client experiences an attack your information may become collateral damage. Your organization is also relying on that third party to remain in compliance with regulations related to data security and other aspects. If they aren’t well organized this could be overlooked, leaving your data even more vulnerable.
