Krome’s Commercial Director, Sam Mager, joins other industry experts in sharing their top tips on how businesses can maximise their cloud security.
Computing News asked the experts for their top tips to help businesses use the cloud securely. Here’s what Krome Technologies Director Sam Mager said.
Most organisations embrace the cloud today, with the speed and flexibility of as-a-service offerings proving irresistibly attractive.
And even those who believe their organisations should remain stubbornly out of the cloud will often find cloud services in use somewhere within their own networks.
Whether it’s employees using their personal DropBox accounts to enable seamless home and office work, or perhaps people sharing corporate files via their own Gmail accounts when the corporate email goes down, it’s almost impossible for any sizable organisation to stay completely cloud-free.
