According to research conducted by the Cloud Industry Forum, 88% of companies have now adopted some form of cloud computing.
What’s cloud computing? – It’s where you use software in your browser, rather than having to download it to your computer.
In lots of ways, the increase in the use of cloud computing is a wonderful thing.
The many benefits of moving to the cloud have been well documented (Click here to see our post). From flexibility and convenience to reduced downtime and huge cost savings, it’s easy to see why so many businesses have taken the plunge.
But as is often the way with the good stuff in life, there are downsides too.
The explosive growth of cloud computing has opened the door to a host of cyber attackers, waiting in the wings to capitalise on the inexperience of business owners.
One of their favourite ways in is through malware; a malicious form of software with the power to spread through computer systems like a forest fire.
But what risks are there, and how can you prevent them without taking your business’ IT back to the 20th century?
As this video is only a brief overview we have created a FREE Guide to walk you through the basics.
The Guide outlines Malware in the Cloud, and how unaddressed vulnerabilities within cloud computing could give malicious forms of software the chance to attack your IT systems. It also provides insight into what you can do to protect both you and your business, from the hordes of cyber attackers waiting to capitalise on your vulnerability and inexperience with the cloud.
