In this day and age, cyber security is a very important and well sought after commodity. Unfortunately there are many people with ill intent for your information and the things you might put on the internet. Thankfully with cloud service security, it has never been safer and easier to protect your files in a cloud environment. Besides, it is absolutely necessary for an SME (small/medium enterprise) to develop a general sense of sustainability and protection in its online presence.
It is much easier and much less worrying to have your data in a cloud, because after all, you won’t lose it, everything will be backed up and protected in its new cloud environment. Although just having your data backed up is not enough, so one practice many people use is data encryption. Data encryption is the process of encoding information. This encoding changes the original representation of the information in the file, known as plaintext, into an alternate form known as ciphertext. This change allows you to pick and choose who can view the information, as only authorized users and clients can decipher a ciphertext into plaintext and access the original information. This method is very safe and it can be used by one person, or an SME, whenever it is deemed necessary.
