Companies are generating data these days at an incredible pace and this trend will continue in the future. Safeguarding this data is of paramount importance since its breach will damage the reputation of the organisation.
Thus, it’s so important to consider where you store your company’s data: on your premises or in the cloud. While both have their relative merits, the most important aspect in this time of constant data breaches is data security.
Below, we are going to explore what both options entails, the ways a data breach could occur and whether there is a safer choice between the two we just mentioned.
Storing Data On-Premise
Storing data on-premise refers to companies having their own exclusive data Centre’s. Traditionally, this is how many organizations designed and maintained their networks. Amongst other things, it requires the physical hardware, space for said hardware, and backup and disaster-recovery services.
Despite the growing popularity of the cloud, many companies still prefer their on-premise application. The main reason behind this preference is security. Most organizations don’t feel comfortable outsourcing their network or giving up control over its defences.
Once the server gets affected by the virus it can damage the local systems connected to it through LAN . Your business will stop for 5 days. How? Refer the below table-
Suppose if you were using your data on Cloud. Let’s see the scenario-
The cloud is a network of servers wherein each one serves a different function. Some store data. Others run applications. You’ve probably noticed that, more and more, you don’t buy your software in a box from a store; you pay a monthly fee to access the platform online; that’s one version of the cloud in action.
Another common example is uploading a photo to social media. If you take it on your phone, that photo is stored in the device’s internal memory drive. Once you upload it to a social media site, it is then stored on the company’s cloud servers.
Other common examples of using the cloud most will be familiar with include:
On an enterprise level, the cloud is used for storing an entire organization’s data. To put it simply, these companies no longer need their own on-premise data Centre is for hosting. It also makes it easy for employees to access the company’s network from anywhere using several different devices.
If you were using the Cloud server. Virus cannot effect on your server easily but even in the case of a virus attack, it can be rectified in an hour.
Like your On-Premise server you can configure Cloud Server with these features-
· Provide the file level access as per their role (we can control the data flow and restrict the data breach)
· Provide application wise access
· Remove the access whenever the employee leaves an organization.
· Monitor each & every activity
· Increase the productivity
