When it comes down to it, when people think of cloud computing their initial concern is always the issue of security. “What do you mean all of my information is accessible for anywhere?” “Why wouldn’t I just keep all of my information localized?” Admittedly, the sound of your personal business “just flying around out there” is a little bit unnerving. But the fact is, cloud computing is very safe…even safer than your locally stored data.
Now that you’ve been assured that the cloud is safe, you still might not be convinced. You might be thinking, “How is the cloud protected?” Well here’s an answer: Encryption. Encryption methods utilize complex algorithms to conceal cloud-protected information. In order for anyone to get through to the stored information and data, they would need the encryption key. A private cloud server uses more complex security methods than the average computer owner is able to devise.
