Cloud computing is a rapidly growing solution for issues related to data storage and collaboration. The cloud itself is simply a virtualization of resources — like data storage, applications, servers and networks all working in unison to allow access to information on-demand. IT Wire brought this interesting information to our attention in their article, “Confluence in the time of cloud.”

Cloud computing advancements presents tremendous innovation possibilities. Greater adoption drives more investment and the boundaries of what is possible are constantly moving forward. These conditions are creating the perform storm for new niche industries to quickly emerge and gain traction.

The swift rise in the adoption of cloud services by a large number of businesses today speaks for its benefits.

The cloud era has not only redefined the enterprise perimeter and created new vulnerabilities – it has also created a dependency on constant internet connectivity. These new challenges require collaboration, and also intelligent and continuous cybersecurity solutions to protect data wherever it resides.
