How safe is cloud computing?

More companies are beginning to swap their traditional tangible data storage for cloud storage, but how safe is cloud computing? While no system is one hundred percent reliable, cloud computing is actually safer than on-site data storage. The data stored in the cloud is protected by multiple levels of security. There are layers of firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, intrusion detection systems and other security practices in place to keep your data safe from prying eyes. In addition to the virtual security, data centers are protected by physical security. This may include but is not limited to retina scanners, backup power generators, backup cooling systems and multiple network providers. With cloud storage, your data can include songs, pictures, videos and documents whether they’re business related or otherwise are safely protected in large data centers. Each data center, or storage area network, stores and replicates your data and then it is stored at several data centers across the country. If there is an issue at a data center, most times it would go unknown to you because your data has stayed out of harm’s way due to the backing up and storage of data. With all of that being said, cloud computing seems to be the safest way to back up and protect your documents.
