A managed service provider can help ensure your cloud computing environment is secure. Trust the IT superheroes at Tekie Geek.
Whatever industry you work in, you’ve probably heard about cloud storage. But what does it mean for a program or file to be “in the cloud” – and are cloud-based services even secure? Fortunately for small businesses, the answer is yes. Cloud computing can improve your workplace efficiency while still protecting you and your employees from cybersecurity risks. Learn more about cloud computing in this guide from Tekie Geek, an IT consulting and managed services provider serving businesses in New York and New Jersey.
Historically, businesses purchased and installed on-premises IT infrastructure to do their work. Today, many companies have made the switch to cloud computing, which allows them to rent IT services instead of buying them. Cloud computing means using hosted services over the internet, including:
Data is still stored on physical servers, but they are not located in the business headquarters or office. Instead, the servers are managed by a third party, the cloud service provider. If you use cloud computing, you have on-demand access to a wide range of computing tools without having to purchase or maintain these resources yourself.
Cloud computing is valuable for any end user, but it’s an especially helpful option for small businesses. The advantages of cloud computing include:
Cloud computing also eliminates the need for costly and time-consuming upgrades to on-premises IT, helping small businesses stretch their budgets further.
