Cloud technology is continuing to become safer and more efficient with each passing day. In fact, though cloud technology started off with simplistic capabilities, it’s expanded significant, and now, 80% of cloud adopters saw improvements within six months of moving to the cloud. But before you start your cloud migration process, it’s important to know what to expect for the most efficient steps. Here are just a few strategies to optimize your cloud storage’s security.

Read all the fine print
Before committing to any type of binding agreement, take the time to read over its details in full. User agreements contain critical details about your specific service plan.

“If you are not sure what cloud storage to choose or if you have any questions as for how that or another cloud service works you can read the user agreement of the service you are planning to sign up for. There is no doubt it’s hard and boring but you really need to face those text volumes. The document which traditionally suffers from insufficient attention may contain essential information you are looking for,” writes Victoria Ivey on CIO.

Encrypt all data
Most experts say that encrypting any and all data put into the cloud is the best step you can take to keep said data as safe and protected as possible. Encryption works when you move a file to the cloud using a certain software that’s locked with a password. Once the password-protected file is moved to the cloud, no one can see its contents without having the password.

Due to the rising bandwidth requirements and shift toward wireless systems, the enterprise network equipment market is projected to hit $30.6 billion by 2020. While these tips are certainly useful for enhanced data protection and security, it’s also a good idea to invest in a consultation with firewall experts who have years of experience working in the cloud technology industry. Firewall experts can assist you with everything from security, to selecting a Meraki reseller, and much more.
