Common Myths About Cloud Computing

By March 28, 2022September 11th, 2023No Comments

Technology has come a long way since the first computer was invented. 30 years ago, computer engineers probably couldn’t predict that 94% of all enterprises would use cloud computing services. By 2025, researchers predict there will be 100 Zettabytes of data stored in the Cloud. But, with advances in technology often comes skepticism. Worries abound about the safety of the Cloud and the protection of crucial data, but we are here to assure you, the Cloud is nothing to fear. Who are we?

We are Pathway Communications, a cloud services provider located in Toronto, and we are here to debunk some of the common myths about cloud computing.

Is the Cloud Secure?

The short answer is yes, it is secure. For every 3 out of 4 enterprises, Cloud security is a top concern. Cloud providers ensure data is encrypted and take extensive privacy measures to keep your data safe. Cloud providers also offer other protection measures to provide extra security for financial information.

Data stored on the Cloud is virtually inaccessible to hackers because the servers are stored in large warehouses. Hackers can use a range of cybersecurity attacks to steal data from a personal computer, but they won’t stand a chance against Cloud servers.

Is the Cloud Flexible?

Private cloud hosting services provide the most flexibility when it comes to storing files. At Pathway Communications, we give new customers a free 30-day trial to see all of the features we offer. We are flexible because we offer unlimited traffic between VMs.

We allow users to pay for the storage they use, not the storage they could use. This saves users money because they aren’t paying for more than what they use. Our Cloud computing solutions give you the option to customize how your files are saved.

Can Anyone Else Access My Data?

You need to be able to trust that the cloud you use will restrict access to your files. Cloud breaches are due to human error in 88% of cases. When you use Pathway Communications as your cloud services provider, you are getting private cloud hosting services. This means no one else will be able to access your data. While no cloud environment can be 100% secure, we make sure our cloud is as close to 100% secure as possible.
