10 Benefits of Cloud Computing for Your Business

Cloud Computing is the use of remote servers over the Internet to store, manage and process data.
Cloud hosting provides businesses with myriad of benefits and in this post we will take a look at ten of the most important ones.

1. Cloud hosting can save your company money

An advantage of cloud computing is the reduction in hardware cost. Using cloud computing you don’t need your own hardware as everything is hosted on your provider’s servers.

So you won’t need to pay for space, power, physical security, insurance and air-conditioning or need to cover the costs of ongoing maintenance.

2. Cloud scalability and pay as you go pricing

If you you suddenly need extra computing resources to cover a short term demand for your business, there is no need to buy, install and configure an expensive new server.

With cloud computing you can increase your computing capacity instantly and only pay for the extra resources you have used.

3.  Strategic competitive advantage

Cloud Computing can give you a strategic competitive advantage over your competitors who have not yet adopted this technology since deployment time in cloud computing is zero and applications that are critical for your business’ growth and success can be instantly online.

4. High Availability

Cloud hosting decreases the possibility of server failure. The cloud’s hyper-approach design guards against everything from hard disk failure to an entire server failure, enabling mission-critical applications to be available all the time.

5. Very fast performance

Cloud computing offers high-performance servers with technology such as powerful CPUs and super fast SSD drives.

Also, load balancing is used to route client requests in a way that maximizes speed and capacity utilization. Therefore, when servers are busy the load is distributed so that no single server suffers from performance problems.

6. Get your apps running quicker

Cloud-based applications have significantly reduced the time required for successful execution. Most cloud-based applications can be used instantly after signup.

7. Increased security

With cloud hosting, your business is protected against hacking and internal data theft. Cloud providers are required to comply with a range of stringent security regulations in order to protect their customers’ data.

8. Flexible working

Staff can access files both in and out of the workplace, enabling them to work remotely or in the office. Many companies use this to give employees more flexible working conditions.

Staff can access the company’s system using web-enabled devices such as smartphones and laptops and can collaborate in real-time with others by sharing synchronized files and using online conferencing.

9. Environmental Friendly

Cloud computing reduces the overall impact on the environment.

By moving your system to the cloud you won’t need your own data center and can significantly reduce your own carbon footprint.You won’t need to power up the servers or keep them cool, you won’t even need a data center room which needs to be lit.

10. Future enabled

With the growth of the Internet of Things, the amount of big data that businesses are collecting and processing is going to exponentially increase .

Big data analytics provides vital information for the business development and those companies who have the resources to carry it out are the ones who will gain most.

How to Prevent Ransomware Attacks

HOW TO PREVENT RANSOMWARE ATTACKS

 

In recent years, articles of the type “Company X had to pay ‘ransom’ for their data” or “Public Organization Y can not serve the public because their information was hacked” are increasingly common.

It seems that although organizations are prepared to face different types of physical incidents such as power outages and floods, it is still common for the whole data infrastructure to be vulnerable because someone clicked on a malicious link or opened an email attachment. Due to this many organizations fight against malware and in particular against RANSOMWARE.

Given the prevalence of Windows operating systems as the target (more than 90%) of ransomware, the guide is largely oriented towards that environment.

The IT Security Guidelines is intended to be a an in Depth guide based on a checklist, to avoid infections with ransomware and, ultimately to create adequate procedures for the retrieval of information.

Ransomware, has been the protagonist threat for the last 3 years and probably, will remain to be in 2019.

It is necessary to implement a progressive security strategy in layers so that the impact for the normal functioning of an organization is as tenuous as possible.

We want to contribute and help prevent infections, in order to reduce the number of cases and combat all ransomware.

The present guidelines have been developed with the aim of providing the IT community with a simple guide to follow when dealing with the ransomware problem.
