Is cloud hosting really that secure? Is the data really safely stored and used? If one person has some bad intentions can the system really protect personal info on other people? And is it as safe as server hosting?


Cloud hosting is completely isolated from physical servers. All data exchange takes place remotely. Therefore, it provides good security.
Cloud providers constantly monitor and protect customer data.
At the same time, users must also maintain cloud security.
1. It is not recommended to use the default settings. This facilitates hаcking.
2. You cannot leave a cloud storage container open. So an attacker can easily view the contents of the container.
3. You should try to take advantage of all the security capabilities provided by the cloud service provider for the client.


Indeed, the name "cloud" gives the impression that anyone can penetrate it and take possession of the necessary information. People think the intangible can't be impenetrable, so local servers are less of a risk.
In fact, cloud network security is often better than traditional enterprise infrastructure. Just because you can't see where your information is stored doesn't make a cloud service any less secure: virtual servers can be just as secure as physical servers, and sometimes more. 8)
In addition: cloud systems give you the opportunity to back up your files, thus improving the security of storing documents, compared to using disks or local servers, hundreds of times!

There is no completely secure model. The same hosting server you mentioned does not have this quality. However, when compared with a simple web hosting, then of course there are a number of advantages that are based on the principles of protection.
If you want to protect your server or data as much as possible, then use cloud hosting that works on the principles of blockchain. In a nutshell, such a server cannot be hаcked. It works on the principles of encryption and rewriting, which guarantees 99.99% protection. Of course, such hosting will cost more, but not much, most likely you will pay extra $ 7 -15 on top compared to regular cloud hosting.


There is no guarantee that your data will be safe in the cloud, no matter how many security measures the provider puts in place. If your company does not manage a cloud server well, it is vulnerable. Your IT provider must establish security policies and maintain all security devices to keep data secure.


It's completely cecure, because the entire database is constantly being copied to another physical server, and in the event of a server problem, your site will be moved to another server without any failures.


cloud server has much lower risks regarding data loss. Even if something happens to the data center, you can always use backups.

Using the cloud is more secure than using a virtual web server.
This is due to the fact that VPN, virtual networks with NAT, firewalls, antiviruses, backup systems and other security certificates are often used in cloud technologies.

Advantages of clouds.
High fault tolerance. The availability of technologies reaches 99.98%. You can connect to the virtual hosting at any time.
Virtually unlimited resources. The cloud is suitable for storing any amount of data.
Scalability and elasticity. Hosting scales easily if you need more power for your web services.
Safety. Cloud data centers use comprehensive information protection.
Reliability. There is no risk of loss, as data backup is possible. However, as a disadvantage, it is worth noting that some public cloud hosting services may require an additional fee for creating a backup.
Small monetary costs. Switching to the cloud frees you from the need to purchase additional computer equipment. For full access to the services, you will only need to pay a monthly fee.
