One of the most frequent reasons cited for companies that are hesitant to migrate to the cloud is the worry of a security risk. The cloud is conceived of as more public, or more easily hacked, than an on-premise solution. However, this stems from a misconception about how the cloud works and what security measures your business can reasonably put into place.

Some of this comes down to the available skills of your company’s development team. Are they familiar with cloud environments? Do they know how to decide if a hybrid-cloud environment would work? This lack of knowledge can present a serious barrier. That’s why at Pantek, we pride ourselves on helping companies by specializing in cloud knowledge.

How to Make the Cloud Secure for You

Pantek doesn’t just assist you in migrating to the cloud environment; we stick with you to monitor that environment and help you identify and fix possible security risks before they turn into serious issues. Generally, there are a few key aspects of your cloud environment that contribute to overall data safety. Speed is critical for cloud environmental safety since you want to be able to start and monitor your security without delays.

Another aspect to consider is whether the security is ‘baked in’ to your solutions. When security protocols are a standard part of your business processes, and not something added on as an afterthought, everything is likely to run smoothly and be more cost-effective. As with most companies, you’ll also want to think about how scalable your security is. As your business grows and changes, you’ll need your security measures to expand and compensate for that growth.

Finally, proactive measures are always more effective than reactive measures. Pantek specifically plans out your migration and your monthly usage to ensure that we find things before they can become a problem. Our process will help discover points of failure, automate updates, patches, and data transfers/uploads to reduce down-time and provide a more sustainable, stable, and secure environment. That way, you can stop disaster from striking in the first place.

Proactive measures can stop most security risks, but unfortunately things can and do still go wrong. However, Pantek is here for you every step of the way to ensure you don’t lose data or money on extended down-time while you recover.
