New Article: Keeping Your Data Safe in the Cloud

Industry buzz seems to come in waves, doesn't it? Some days all you hear about is social media--and today, the day of Facebook's much-talked about IPO, you'd think that would be the case. But at Idealware, we're talking about the cloud. 

Last month we helped our friends at NTEN with a report on the State of the Nonprofit Cloud. As part of our continuing research, we're wrapping up a followup report about organizations using the cloud for infrastructure. And we're moving ahead with research into moving back office functions to the cloud.   

So it seems appropriate to share a new article with you today about keeping your data safe in the cloud

"Many organizations question the security of information kept in the cloud. The internet can be a dangerous place for data, but no more so than your own computer, where your data faces many of the same threats—in fact, a good cloud storage vendor is likely to protect your data better than you’d reasonably be able to do on your own. With a little planning, it’s possible to take advantage of the benefits offered by the cloud while making sure your organization’s data is as safe as is practically possible."

It ran in a different version in the March 1 issue of The NonProfit Times, You can read that version here

I totally agree with ur view

I totally agree with ur view that cloud is a better place to save ur data than a personal computer. But i still am a bit confused if u consider when a company saves its data on the cloud. As many companies are moving totally on cloud including banks, it kind a becomes threat.  It would be great if u can help me clear my doubts.

Thanks for the link to the

Thanks for the link to the report! Hadn't heard of it before, but very excited to read it.

I sincerely wish my organization would switch to a cloud-based solution. There's company based out of Vancouver, BC called Perfect Mind that supposedly has very integrated compent for email and payment processing. Would definitely like to investigate them further.
