Cloud computing should be your first choice

Our data is one of the most precious things we have to deal with. From images we take on our mobile phones to collaborative projects we are working on, we constantly strive for the best data option that offers both protection and accessibility.

Where we choose to store all of our information is different to each individual and enterprise. Before cloud computing became a “thing”, many looked past the importance of carefully considering where you should be storing your data.

For most, by storing data anywhere other than your personal hard drive, this exclusively means you do not have full control, resulting in either fear or relief that the responsibility has been passed on to someone else.

Data should be treated with high importance both in personal and enterprise circumstances. Here’s why we believe the cloud should be your first choice for protecting and accessing your data:

1. Better storage options

Cloud storage options are a great investment for the smallest company to the largest enterprise. With the option to increase or decrease storage depending on business needs it is a more cost-effective way to store data within a business in comparison to traditional hard drives.

With hard drives, you pay for a set amount of additional storage which is stored on another piece of kit meaning that if this kit is lost you have no other way to retrieve that data.

Ultimately, the cloud gives you complete freedom and control of data storage needs.

2. Access data simply but securely  

The option to go mobile is extremely appealing to modern day workers. As all data and apps never leave the data centre, user desktops can be accessed safely and securely from any device. As a result, a business can support a highly diverse environment of devices, access methods and user types — as well as allow workers to bring and use their own equipment for work (Bring Your Own Device) — without sacrificing security.

The cloud also enables additional security when it comes to users logging in to their desktops to access their data and apps. Atlas Cloud offers Two-Factor Authentication and Multi-Factor Authentication to increase cloud security even more. Two-Factor Authentication is used a lot in online banking, where the user requires something they know (such as a password) and something they possess (like a smartphone receiving a generated code or a card-entry reader) to log in.

Cloud service providers need to ensure their data centre and service complies with security accreditations. We provide SSL encryption between client devices and our ISO 27001 data centres, which ensures that data being streamed from the data centre to the client user device is encrypted and could not be read even if someone were to hack into the connection.

3. UK help staff 

At Atlas Cloud, we can offer full IT support from our award-winning technical team. As an additional bonus, all of our team are based locally in the North East, meaning that you can have peace of mind knowing that support is available whenever it’s needed.

In a recent customer satisfaction survey, we scored 4.9/5 for speed, professionalism and customer service.

Like our tech team, our data centre is locally based, reducing the risk of disaster or potential security threats. This also allows our tech support team to visit the data centre on a regular basis, whenever needed.

Cloud computing, specifically within the Atlas Cloud platform, allows for a cost effective IT infrastructure with support readily available whenever it is needed.
