Five Easy Ways to Strengthen Your Cloud Security

The security world once was able to (safely) gather and discuss all things topical and relevant to the industry during the 2022 RSA Conference. There were tons of takeaways, with one survey of attendees finding remote work was the number one concern for 17% and ransomware affecting 19% the most. But the main concern for the largest group, 37% of the attendees, was cloud security.  

 

And while we’ve touched on security topics from specific things like protecting against $43B scams and how Microsoft Azure works to why more cyber security training is important, nothing quite scratched the itch on the best ways to beef up cloud security.

Use These 5 Tips When Collaborating Externally in Office 365

Sharing content externally is easier than ever. Thanks to the cloud, you can do all kinds of things with data that would otherwise be impossible. The shift from a technology-driven to an intent-driven approach with Microsoft’s suite of offerings means end users are able to collaborate with the right people anywhere they are. 

 

Even with all the fancy technological advancements, external sharing remains a business risk. Any time something gets shared outside of your team, a door is opened for intruders. In a survey conducted by ShareGate, State of Microsoft 365: Migration, Modernization, and Security in 2021, only around 64% of IT teams manage or otherwise control the way each team works with people outside the company.

When Shouldn't You Migrate to the Cloud?

For all the good and wondrous things the mononymous “Cloud” can do for businesses, there’s a reason our refrain is always the same to our clients: Use what you need and not an ounce more. And while some of the talking heads around the IT community believe the Cloud is the be-all end-all for everyone everywhere, the reality is some teams just can’t leverage the tools. 

 

So rather than continue on about how glorious each individual tool is for your group – which we can and will do if you’re looking for that kind of information – we wanted to put together a much more practical look at some of the reasons your team may not turn to the Cloud for answers.  

 

And quite frankly, this blog as a whole is in no way an attempt to talk you out of or into utilizing specific tools, but an honest look at situations we discover every day for our clients, presented in a way that allows you to cross items off your own list at the same time.  

 

So without further adieu, let’s begin!

Microsoft Azure: What is it and How Does it Help Small Business?

Businesses around the country – and the world for that matter – have been spending quality time devising the right balance of on-premises vs. cloud computing, with many landing somewhere on the hybrid spectrum of solutions. But no matter how exactly it can benefit your small business, our current reality is cloud computing enables organizations of every size to grow well beyond previous expectations. 

 

When doing research on the topic it may feel like the tools and resources are endless and boundless. From car dealerships to caddies and well beyond, tools aid in every kind of decision-making situation. No, we’re not talking about PAT from the 1999 Disney Channel Original Movie Smart House (did you know it was directed by LeVar Burton??), but instead a collection of advanced programs that give businesses everywhere tools they would otherwise not be able to afford to house.

On-Premise vs. Cloud: Which is Better for You?

To continue our mini-series on cloud migration topics, we wanted to lay down a figurative gauntlet that can help you decide between two incredibly useful, and fairly different, ways to compute for your business, namely picking either On-Premis or Cloud computing. 

 

While IT teams of every size consider the best options for deploying digital workloads, these days the choice always seems to come down to these two options. Public cloud resources offer extraordinary scalability, lower operating costs, and boundless access to new technologies – but on-premise infrastructure offers more control, dedicated security options, and internal visibility.
