Is Cloud as secure as traditional on-premises IT infrastructure?

Most organisations will find that their data is more secure in the cloud, particularly small to medium size businesses who do not have the resources to really tackle cyber security sufficiently to eliminate all of the threats posed by today’s hackers.

Cloud providers generally have stricter measures in place than an SME can implement themselves in order to protect their client’s data. Cloud providers will also update this protection on a regular basis.

The backup processes with a competent cloud provider will also protect your company against potential data loss.

So, although the cloud is not inherently more (or less) secure than on-premises IT systems, cloud-based IT systems are generally more secure.
