      Posted by May Elliott on May 19, 2020 9:00:00 AM

      While many organizations don’t have to think  twice about protecting on-premise data, several don’t realize that they still need to protect their Cloud data, like data from Microsoft Office 365.  Instead of running Microsoft applications themselves, businesses are consuming it as a service. Hosted  in the Cloud, businesses can get the most up-to-date versions of the Microsoft Office Suite, OneDrive, and mobile apps. This allows users to access and edit documents anywhere, at any time, on any device. Office 365 is an example of Software as a Service (SaaS), but many SaaS applications have no data protection capabilities.

      7 Reasons Financial Institutions Need Cloud Computing & Cybersecurity

      Posted by NewCloud Networks on Feb 27, 2020 11:00:00 AM

      Cloud adoption by financial institutions has been on the rise. According to PwC, by 2020 core financial services like credit scoring, statements management, payments, and billing will use the cloud for processing and computing. From retail banking to collection agencies to asset management and investment banking, the cloud provides many use cases to bring scalability, cost savings and higher security to financial institutions. 

      The largest financial institutions have already adopted cloud technology. But it’s not just the J.P. Morgan’s or Bank of America’s of the world. Smaller financial institutions are finding the same benefits in cloud computing and cybersecurity practices that enterprises are leveraging.  Here are 7 reasons financial institutions need cloud computing and cybersecurity.

      1. Cost Savings 

      Financial institutions are leveraging the cloud to move IT operations to an operating expense model (OpEx). IT hardware and underlying infrastructure is expensive, and financial institutions are concerned about the rising costs associated with running data centers. Additionally, on-premise data centers are difficult to scale, and any growth requires large capital expenditures. Instead, hybrid cloud strategies allow banks and collection agencies to safeguard mission-critical data in the cloud without the high cost and maintenance that typical on-premise centers come with.
