Enhancing information security and integrity with dedicated server hosting:
The most crucial asset that a business can have is the information that it possesses.
The smallest of details that are essential to ensure smooth operations need security.
This means that very often, businesses and individuals spend valuable time and resources.
In safeguarding the heaps of data that they have while diverting attention from revenue-generating activities.
With more and more products and services becoming accessible online through eCommerce websites and applications.
The cost of maintaining and securing records also increases significantly while the risks of security breaches also multiply simultaneously.
Threats to information security
Although a move from the storage of data on conventional file servers to dedicated servers has reduced these threats significantly.
It has to assume that there is always an imminent danger to information security.
The largest threat face is that of loss or theft of data.
Loss of information can identify and prevented.
At times lost data can even recover but from a professional standing means disruption in business activity and vulnerability.
Loss of data
Outsourcing data storage to data center service providers is the most effective means of bringing data loss near to zero.
While a business spends enormous amounts of money to maintain in house file servers that require constant maintenance, supervision, and up-gradation.
Loss of data from natural disasters or physical damage to these servers can never rule out.
Creating backup for data stored on in house file servers is not very practical.
Since the backup is also usually in the physical proximity of the original servers and faces the same amount of exposure to these dangers.
Loss of data may also result from granting unnecessary access to persons not familiar with the usage of servers.
Transition to newer technology, upgrading storage space to increase capacity.
The impact of data loss can be varying depending on the nature of data.
Loss of employee database will require time to recollect information.
Loss of client or customer information will slow down order processing and customer requests for purchase history and sale receipts will not fulfill.
Data loss may also limit business or individual from fulfilling legal obligations and compiling.
Statistical and analytical data that may influence managerial decisions.
Theft of Data
The impact of the theft of data is at the least the same as loss of data or at the most, greatly multiple due to malicious intent to harm the continuity of a business.
A business can always secure it’s servers and secure the information store on them.
But this will always be at an ever-increasing cost that comes with the obsoletion of technology and increasing amounts of data.
Overcome the odds with a dedicated server
Dedicated servers hosted by data center service providers, give the user complete control over access and usage of information.
The service provider is also responsible for ensuring compliance with upgrades in technology without disrupting online operations since the backups are also maintained at the data center.
The risk of natural disasters is also minimal due to data banks being located in various locations.
The movement to and from the data center is strictly monitoring to ensure that servers are never at a risk allowing clients to spend time and valuable resources towards growing the business.
