What are Cloud Services

And Why Are They Needed


Whether it’s albums-worth of photos or years-worth of personal files, storing a lot of data used to mean closets full of boxes, offices full of folders, or hard discs full of documents. Now you can simply store all of your files, photos, and more in the cloud, and Security Five can help keep it secure with reliable cloud services.

Defining Cloud Services

A cloud service is available to users via the Internet—instead of external servers—and managed by a service provider—like Security Five. Users choose cloud storage because it’s:

  • Secure
  • Convenient
  • Easy to access
  • Automatic, no updates needed
  • One system to log-in to
  • Saves time and money

The time and money for organizing hard copies of materials and keep it secure burdens companies. The introduction of cloud services lightens the load in finding reliable data storage. Sending files to the cloud is a sought-after service for many companies looking for secure, scalable access to resources.

A Customized Cloud

Because information is all stored digitally, it can be customized to meet the needs of its users. The service provider supplies the hardware and software necessary to manage the data, leaving one less thing for any IT department to worry about. Plus, there’s no external equipment to damage or steal.

Companies can choose from a range of cloud services including online data storage and backup, Web-based email, document management and collaboration, database processing, technical support, and more.
