You may have noticed that working in the cloud has become increasingly popular in recent years. By working in the cloud, you as a user have the opportunity to consult your data anywhere, anytime via any device with an internet connection. Although the cloud has become so popular in recent years, many companies wonder how secure their data is. The concerns are logical, of course, as no one is waiting for hackers to run off with the data. We are happy to explain which measures are taken to protect your data.
An ERP solution in the cloud
Before we go into more detail about the security of your data, we would like to explain to you how a solution in the cloud works. Choosing a solution in the cloud means that the solution and your data are no longer on your server. The solution resides on the supplier’s server, which means that you can consult your software via any device with an Internet connection so that employees everywhere work uniformly. Cloud software has many other advantages.
Security of software in the cloud
The security surrounding software in the cloud is often a hot topic. Several studies have already shown that cloud users are concerned or that companies choose an on-premise solution for security reasons. However, the concerns are often unfounded. A good, professional cloud supplier provides regular updates, has a security expert team, and meets all security requirements. Indeed, suppose there are millions of users of the cloud. In that case, a supplier does not benefit from a security leak. The supplier does everything to prevent this. In addition, many users of on-premise software are not aware that an outdated on-premise system is also a risk of a data breach. Bluace’s service and maintenance software is based on Microsoft Business Central, and this solution runs in the Microsoft Azure Cloud. We would like to show you the measures Microsoft uses to ensure the security of your data.
Microsoft’s security measures
In general, Microsoft does not reveal much about the security measures they take for the Azure Cloud. You should not worry about this. You can imagine that a hacker will be a lot easier if hackers know what security measures are being taken. Nevertheless, there are several known measures so that you can be sure that safety is guaranteed.
