From mom and pop small businesses to corporate giants, with each new advance in information technology, new threats arise. From mobile applications to quantum computing, security must develop and adapt in order to cope with the changing times, but how can cloud based security storage handle the massive amounts of data captured without corruption or interference?
“The future of data protection is safe storage and strong encryption. Safe storage is a wide subject but basically I usually do not like anything cloud based, as we say in InfoSec: Cloud storage is just your data stored in someone else's computer,” said Khalil Sehnaoui, founder of Krypton Security, an information security consulting firm.
Obviously small to midsize businesses, as well as a majority of single users, have no choice when it comes to using data storage companies as it is cost effective. In that case, those organizations may want to pay extra attention to security practices, redundancy and multi-layer security and encryption procedures.
