Besides systems being readily available from everywhere, there is a significant cost saving from reducing the actual hardware needing to be maintained and replaced.

With all the recent news of malware attacks and hacking, there is a never-ending need for strong IT cloud security services.

It has become fairly evident nobody is safe from these security issues. Many organizations take it for granted that their cloud security is flawless and that it has been taken care of by the provider.

Often, organizations using public cloud assume that their cloud provider is taking care of security and they may even have assurances of that from the provider. The customers normally place an immense amount of trust in the provider and sometimes have a very limited view of the cloud infrastructure. There is a tendency for a customer to sometimes overlook the cloud security and it isn’t overseen with the same level of vigil as the applications that are on-premise.

When the cloud goes down there is an impact that not only derails your day to day activities but also throws into doubt your business vision. The fear of downtime has always been in the minds of business owners. Being unable to access relevant data and services owing to downtime can affect many businesses and services.

On October 21st Dyn, an American company that manages Internet traffic was a victim of an attack. The east coast of the US suffered server crashes and services like Twitter, Spotify, Netflix, Amazon, Tumblr, Reddit, PayPal were inaccessible.

Losing time and money in addition to the loss of data can prove to be a very expensive blow indeed. Owing to such lapses in security many industries in finance, healthcare and IT fail to even meet industry regulations and standards.

Security breaches often result in reputation damage and increase the risk of greater threats. Many such incidents have shown that the cost involved in rectifying this issue is significant and unplanned for. Many officials are held accountable for the same and sometimes are even forced to give up their official roles owing to the problems suffered.

Experts claim that the cloud technology itself isn’t at fault. But the human errors and inability to use appropriate levels of security caused the problems. People may often tend to take it easy and compromise on the level of security.

More and more organizations are seeking partners who can deliver top-quality cloud security and especially those who can provide it across different layers of the operation. There is a need for specialists across the spectrum that can efficiently ensure that no breach is happening.

A lot more emphasis is laid on pro-active systems that help to identify and notify the users of the breaches or any such lapse in security.

Partnering with the right provider helps to not only minimize operating costs and enhance brand image, but it also gives businesses the liberty on focusing on progressive business actions. You need a partner who isn’t merely there to safeguard the cloud. You need a proactive and updated service provider who can add valuable inputs to your business too.

For over 19 years, the team at The Soft Wave has successfully helped several clients by providing a wide range of network security solutions designed to let them get on with the business of doing business.

Cloud computing and “The Cloud” has become the talk of the town with the increase in netbook users and the availability of low-cost computing devices. In addition to the availability of “cloud-ready” computing solutions, Microsoft is pushing “cloud computing” heavily with their “TO THE CLOUD” marketing campaigns.  Tablets, mobile phones, and other thin-client devices with enabled web services allow users to access data in the cloud making more people interested in cloud computing and grabbing the attention of small businesses across Canada looking for more cost-effective technology solutions.

But is cloud computing safe for Ontario businesses?

Can you trust the cloud with all your corporate information? Experts at PCWorld Canada are positive about cloud computing and how small businesses from coast-to-coast can reap the benefits from cloud-based services.

Before investing in cloud computing solutions, we recommend having our team of Ontario IT support specialists review your security risks and any potential vulnerabilities that may exist with using cloud services.  There are many things to consider with cloud computing including regulatory and compliance risks for some corporations and non-profit groups.

Though cloud computing has been introduced only some time ago, the concept of using the Internet for services isn’t new at all. Cloud computing can be extremely beneficial for small businesses as it provides an economical alternative to the otherwise expensive IT services or applications. Several features make a cloud-based offering stand out, but those very features could become high-risk issues for companies. For instance, though the cloud-based offering is delivered over the Internet, your data may enter into a shared environment where it may get mixed up with other customer’s data.

Make sure you understand the benefits and risks around the protection of your data’s integrity and privacy. You might think there is nothing positive about cloud computing for small businesses when you dig through all the terms and conditions. There is. It is just that a little homework is needed on your side and having a trusted IT professional in your corner will also help your business find the right cloud service.

Some important areas to discuss with any cloud service when it comes to your business data include:

  • Confidentiality and data backup policies – make sure you ask about the retention of data, as well, and who has access to it.
  • Discuss data segregation, service provider viability, availability, and recovery, and make sure you know if the service provider can handle your data.
  • Also, ask ‘What happens if…’; find out about the potential risk to your data if the service provider goes out of business.

Discuss all potential advantages and risks with your technology consultant.  Our team of Ontario technology consultants work with many business owners and have helped many chose if the cloud is the right solution.  Cloud services may not be suitable for every business.  Do your homework and speak to us.


Considering the cost benefits and additional flexibility that businesses can enjoy by switching to cloud-based computing, all small businesses should strongly consider moving at least part of their data to cloud-based servers. At The Soft Wave, we can set up and manage your business’ cloud solutions.
