Cloud Security vs Local Storage: Where Is Your Data Really Safest?

Many businesses we initially speak with are reluctant to migrate to the cloud because of their questions about cloud security.
Cloud security is a crucial element for our clients and us at Need Computer Help. When migrating data into the cloud there can sometimes be a misunderstanding that Cloud Services are less secure than traditional server installations. However, after reviewing the realities of cloud security, enterprises can clearly see the advantage of a cloud server implementation.

Privately Owned Cloud

Security is a vital aspect for our daily operations. We own and operate a privately owned cloud that allows us the hands on approach to control all cloud security aspects on our servers. This has been our business model since we founded our cloud and hosting business over 10 years ago.

  • We do not resell a mass provider’s cloud infrastructure. We do not suggest or recommend low cost open file sharing solutions with known vulnerabilities.
  • We manage and closely monitor our infrastructure every day. We continuously monitor and actively harden the system to prevent intrusion attempts.
  • Our infrastructure is part of a continuous improvement initiative. Our environment evolves to ensure your data is secure and immune to new security threats that open every day.
  • With your trust, our staff takes great pride in delivering the most effective cloud security environment possible each and every day.

Cyber Security

On average our new customers are running either a consumer grade firewall or an unmonitored small business firewall for their business. Consider this level of security versus Need Computer Help’s privately owned infrastructure here:

  • Need Computer Help’s cloud security infrastructure is protected by enterprise grade firewalls that are constantly monitored and updated to ensure the highest levels of security.
  • Intrusion attempts are continuously monitored and intruders are blocked through our detection prevention systems.
  • Increased password management systems, user controls, and login gateways are all utilized to ensure minimal risk through a simple password or username breach.
  • Multi factor authentication implementations are utilized on our customers with the highest level of vulnerability requiring password and text or email based authentication codes to gain access.

Physical Security

Many businesses we service do not have the internal infrastructure to truly offer a physically secure environment for servers and data storage. Most of these servers end up in an unlocked closet or otherwise open space in the office environment.

  • Our private infrastructure is located in multiple top tier data centers. Physical access to these environments is gained through multiple separate levels of physical security.
  • In addition to minimizing loss from theft; our infrastructure minimizes loss from fire, flood, tornado, hurricane, and other natural disasters that often destroy business data.
  • With extreme redundancy designed into primary data storage, backup data storage, and offsite data storage, we again ensure physical security for data throughout our process.
  • Secure data storage in our server environment ensures we minimize loss internally either from a disgruntled employee, rogue contractor, or other malicious means originating inside the organization.

Backup and Redundancy

Our private Cloud Services include enterprise redundancy levels and backup implementation. These redundancy levels ensure your business has near zero percent downtime at all times and the backup environment maintains safe and secure backups in multiple locations.

  • All deployments within our environment are hosted on multiple physical servers and redundant storage ensuring a hardware failure is not a contributor to downtime.
  • Firewalls, switches, power feeds, and bandwidth are all deployed with redundant configurations further adding to enterprise levels which eliminate downtime.
  • Backups are image based and rely on enterprise level speed and compression such that we can restore your environment including software and operating system with a few simple clicks.
  • Backups automatically replicate across data centers ensuring your data is safely stored in multiple locations at all times in the very unlikely event of a disaster.

Bringing It All Together

When paired together, our cloud security systems offer greater overall security than most traditional in office networks. With our tenure, we bring the experience and depth to ensure all aspects of cloud security are managed and monitored correctly.

  • With privately owned infrastructure, we control the environment 100% and we manage a level of security that we can confidently offer to your business.
  • We store your data centrally in a private environment. We are even able to schedule a tour of one of our data center environments to showcase our infrastructure.
  • Your data is protected with the highest levels of cyber security, physical security, and internal security giving unparalleled options for protecting against a breach.
  • We have been in the cloud and hosting business for well over 10 years. We are your trusted IT partner for your data security and cloud security requirements.
