Security myths arise when newsworthy data breaches occur, read along to bust these common misconceptions and know more about a secure cloud.

When newsworthy data breaches happen it's easy to become suspicious of security. It makes organizations and enterprises more attentive to securing their most confidential data. There's a lot of myths surrounding cloud security. These persistent myths can hold individuals back from upgrading to the cloud because they don't understand it. We're here to help you cut through these needless complications so your organization or business can make informed decisions about the role of security in your private or public cloud.

Today's world can feel like it's saturated in fake news. Good thing we're here to debunk 5 security myths in the cloud. Let's separate fact from fiction.

  1. You'll Never Be Secure With The CloudThis is one myth that needs to be debunked. Take it from the experts in cloud computing, cloud providers take the security of your data extremely seriously. Our data centers go through rigorous security audits. Network security is a priority with an SSAE-16 facility, which undergoes yearly SOC Type 2 audits and security staff on-site 24/7/365. Additionally, there is feature dual-factor authentification through either biometric or physical access controls, as well as continuous monitoring via HD security cameras. The security of data centers matter and so does the security of your cloud.
  2. You're More Likely To Have A Data BreachRepeat after us: Just because a cloud environment is not where I can physically see it doesn't mean that it will experience more breaches. There are many security tools available to help fight the war on data breaches. VEXXHOST uses the best defenses possible to ensure that your vulnerabilities will be protected. Make sure that you choose a cloud provider that you trust and that everything that you store in your cloud is security compliant.
  3. You Need Physical Access To Be SecureThis is a big no-no. The best data security focuses more on who has access to the data instead of those who don't. The more people who have physical access, the higher the risk. You don't need to touch or feel the servers or disks. We have caged space options available for anyone searching for additional security in our data centers. Make sure your data has the right encryptions and security controls to ensure that your information is accessed only by those who need it.
  4. Security Maintenance Will Be ComplicatedSecurity maintenance doesn't have to be complicated. When you have the right cloud computing provider, updating your cloud and maintaining your cloud security is a painless experience. Best practices and operational procedures for security maintenance can help alleviate the stress commonly associated with maintenance. Remember, you'll never need to start from scratch. It's just a question of updating certain aspects to keep your cloud secure as possible. Thinking about upgrading to a private cloud? When you trust the experts at VEXXHOST you don't have to worry about security. Our fully-managed private cloud solution lets us take the guesswork out of security and allows you to focus on what you do best, your way.
