Business data securityLast week we touched on how to use Cloud-based file hosting as a way to increase the storage capacity of your smartphone and tablet devices. But did you know Cloud file storage can also help increase data security?

As more and more people are using mobile devices at work, there is a corresponding rise in the amount of sensitive company data that they are carrying around in their pockets. Should an authorised smartphone or a tablet be lost or stolen, the data contained on it could be easily stolen and resold or used against your business. Worse still, the device may provide unrestricted access to live systems within the company network, placing further data at risk.

Cloud-based file storage can help minimise many of these risks in one go. With data always available online, there is never any need to download it to a smartphone. So if the device is stolen, your data is still in place in the Cloud, safe from the grasp of the thief.

Better still, data stored in the Cloud is transparently available to your company’s network-connected devices, but also exists completely independently. This means that even if thieves steal your smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktop PCs, you don’t need to lose your data.

Cloud file storage and mobile computing are the perfect match for businesses looking to increase productivity without compromising smartphone security.
