There is no question that businesses can benefit from moving data to the cloud. The cloud is elastic and efficient. It can improve user productivity and unburden IT staff, saving time and money. It can accommodate anything from simple file sharing to mission-critical data backup. The question is, just how secure is your cloud? And how do you know?
