Shifting Perspective: Security As A Benefit
What was once a concern is now a benefit – The shifting perspective on security.
In the age of digital revolution, we are at a turning point. No longer is security the primary concern in moving to the cloud. As the technology improves, what was once seen as a major concern, is now proving to be a benefit.
In a recent Microsoft infographic, they outline the five reasons to move to the cloud today based on common IT concerns with adoption. The percentage of IT managers who have rated cloud security as a significant challenge has decreased from 47% to 37% from 2014 to 2016. Rather than seeing security as a risk, security in the cloud has some major benefits:
- A public cloud can scale to store and secure even large amounts of data. Information can be securely stored at any size, accessible by any location, and tied into complete disaster recovery plans.
- The public cloud inherently monitors for millions of threats and mitigating any attack. The automated monitoring means having 24/7 security and intelligence.
- The available automation in the cloud keeps human touch, and the resulting mistakes, at a minimum.
The shift of perspective on security addresses what has been a major concern over the past few years. Additionally, other barriers to entry are decreasing. Migration to the cloud can occur in stages and without tool disruption. Brought into the cloud, the same applications that have become essential to employee processes, now have immense added capabilities. Employees around the globe can experience real-time data, enabling faster, data-driven decisions.
Migrating to the cloud opens the door for enhanced security measures through monitoring, Azure Site Recovery, business continuity and disaster recovery, etc. Once there, the opportunities are endless. Cloud adopters identified top benefits to include: faster access to infrastructure, greater scalability, and increased availability.
