It’s easy for a company to leverage cloud-based IT systems and applications to increase productivity, security and sales. This is a fact that many modern businesses can attest to.
In fact, a recent survey by Schneider Electric has found that 42% of a sample of 300 IT security professionals with decision-making responsibilities are already using cloud-based IT security to keep the data of their company and clients safe.
A further 45% stated that they are ‘likely’ or ‘extremely likely’ to move their security applications to the cloud in the near future. This will only leave a few stragglers working the old-fashioned way, and they won't stay like that for long, thanks to you.
As a GoCloud Partner, you have countless opportunities to sell our Hosted Desktops to businesses and organisations of all sizes, from start-ups and SMEs, to established brands with multiple sites.
The beauty of Hosted Desktops is that they are beneficial for every industry, so whether it’s a law firm, a chain of restaurants or a design house, there are clear USPs for you to communicate.
In short, cloud-based security systems are favourable for a number of reasons:
"Leveraging the cloud for security applications is becoming increasingly accepted – and required – as we move into a 24/7 digital world," said Steven Turney, Security Program Manager at Schneider Electric.
"Especially for companies where security management improvements are imminent, it makes sense to consider innovation at every level of their organisation to meet their security needs. As businesses are required to be more agile, the cloud helps to unify and simplify security measures so an organisation's data, people and assets are constantly protected."
Schneider Electric’s study is just one of many indications that cloud-based security is increasingly preferred over older methods, and with very good reason.
