Study: SMBs That Utilize Cloud Backup Enjoy Greater Security
A recent study conducted by Microsoft revealed that small and midsize businesses (SMBs) that utilize a cloud backup service for data recovery enjoy significant security, privacy and reliability advantages over companies not using a cloud solution.
• 94 percent have gained security benefits they did not have with their former on-premises technology, such as up-to-date systems, up-to-date antivirus and spam email management.
• 62 percent have seen increased levels of privacy protection.
• 75 percent have experienced improved service availability.
Interestingly, the survey also revealed that these benefits contradict many of the fears cited by those who have not yet adopted cloud backup solutions.
Those reasons include data security concerns (60 percent), lack of control over data (45 percent) and doubt over the reliability of cloud backup and cloud-based data recovery (42 percent).
“There’s a big gap between perception and reality when it comes to the cloud,” said Adrienne Hall, general manager, Trustworthy Computing, Microsoft. “The real silver lining in cloud computing is that it enables companies not only to invest more time and money into growing their business, but to better secure their data and to do so with greater degrees of service reliability as well.”
