Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) may have one of the most stressful jobs in business. According to a Forbes report, 1 in 6 CISOs medicate or use alcohol to combat workplace stress. That same report uncovered that less than a third of CISOs are in their job for more than three years. Additionally, 91% of the CISO report respondents say they suffer moderate or high stress.
Choosing the right data center location to house your virtual infrastructure and data can be crucial to avoiding the debilitating costs of unplanned downtime. To the same token, choosing the wrong data center location may lead to serious issues. Here are four things to keep in mind as you evaluate a cloud service provider’s data centers and where they are located.
NewCloud Networks specializes in cloud computing and cloud communications services. These services include private, public, and hybrid cloud, backup as a service, disaster recovery as a service, security as a service, and even hosted phones. Storing data, visualizing data, and protecting data from hackers, disasters, or simple user error, are just a couple of use cases for our cloud services.
Cloud services have evolved significantly since its inception over a decade ago; cloud tools and applications have improved in complexity as well as functionality, and there has been an increase in the number of cloud service providers. Furthermore, cloud services providers have expanded their repertoire of service offerings in response to a business’s needs; examples of some cloud-based services currently offered include Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and more recently, Security-as-a-Service (SECaaS).
Financial institutions are quickly learning that the future of banking is in the cloud. To stay competitive, improve security, and provide more diverse service offerings for end users, financial institutions will look to the cloud for solutions. Banks have traditionally been slow to move to the cloud due to security and compliance concerns but as of recent, have begun to fully understand the full potential and benefits of the cloud. Confidence in the cloud has skyrocketed as of recent thanks to improved levels of security and compliance associated with cloud strategy.
If you’re a small business owner, chances are you have your hand in almost every part of your business. You probably wear many hats, like key decision maker, employee, stakeholder, investors, risk manager, etc. Above all, you realize there is little to no margin for error when it comes to your business.
Any developer will tell you that a high performing test and development environment can improve productivity, bring applications to the market faster and save time (and money). This fast-paced world requires keeping up with rapid digital transformation. The cloud helps facilitate testing, and deployment of applications that help your organization stay ahead of this transformation and adapt to customer demands.
