One of the most searched and spoken word in recent online technology is ‘cloud’. This has become a revolutionary technology that giants like Google, Apple etc. have milked in more ways than we can imagine.
Today when you talk about the technology of cloud and the idea behind it (we are talking about storage and use), it is not new and is used by almost everyone, whether we know it or not. Be it Facebook, Instagram or Gmail, each of these applications use cloud storage to keep our pictures, videos, emails, documents etc., ready for use and download from anywhere and at anytime, across devices. This has really made our life so much easier that we cannot imagine our lives without it anymore.
Did you lose your phone lately? If you have you know the pain of losing data, pictures, contacts especially if they are not backed up on an online drive or synched with your email. This is the exact gap that cloud services are filling up and fast. Now data is no more device dependent, it is identity dependent. People use it freely knowingly or unknowingly and have only benefitted from it.
But when it comes to using the same technology for work related data and documents, we think twice. Here is a quick look at a few pointers, which will help address your queries on public cloud computing services and data security:
What is public cloud service?
A public cloud is a platform that uses the standard cloud computing model to make resources, such as virtual machines (VMs), applications or storage, available to users remotely. Public cloud services may be free or offered through a variety of subscription or on-demand pricing schemes, including a pay-per-usage model.
The main benefits of public cloud service are:
- It reduces the need for organizations to invest in and maintain their own on-premises IT resources;
- It enables scalability to meet workload and user demands; and
- There are fewer wasted resources because customers only pay for what they use
Public Cloud Security
Because of the multi-tenant nature of public cloud, security is an ongoing concern for some enterprises. Public cloud providers offer security services and technologies, such as encryption and identity and access management tools.
However, it is the user’s responsibility to implement such offerings and use best practices to protect their data. A shared-responsibility model helps identify which components are the responsibility of the cloud vendor and which should be secured by the user.
Some organizations choose to keep workloads on premises -- especially those with strict regulatory or governance requirements. But this can drive up costs drastically.
