The verdict is out and there is a consistent push to make cloud computing the number one choice for small and large businesses due to the convenience it provides. What I want to know is, what are the chances of someone intruding, intercepting, or infecting the system with a virus when cloud computing is hosted via public internet platform? Does anyone know what kind of antivirus system cloud computing companies use to protect the data of users?
How safe is clients’ data in cloud computing with public internet platforms?
That is also a worry for users using a cloud solution where most of them are relying on the cloud storage. Since the cloud service solution was first become popular, there haven’t been any reports or whatsoever of any breach on the security unlike with a normal file hosting site.
I was once using a file hosting service for my videos but after several months the site suddenly disappears. They reported on their main page that there has been a breach in their security which resulted to damaging most of the files. After several weeks, I no longer heard anything from them until the time when their address is no longer accessible.
I guess the site has been deleted because of the damage it resulted to the company. This only means they don’t have a strong security. I guess with cloud service, you can expect a strong security for your files. Most of the cloud service providers also offer antivirus solution to make sure all files uploaded are clean.
