Click through for 10 questions you should ask any potential cloud provider to ensure your data is secure, as identified by Syncplicity.

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?

There are major differences among cloud providers in their approach to security and their use of security technologies, processes, and personnel. These differences can have a major impact on the availability, integrity, accessibility, privacy, and compliance of your data — and can directly impact your business.

This slideshow provides a list of questions, developed by Syncplicity, that you should ask any prospective cloud provider, whether that is your internal IT department or a third-party cloud service provider.
