Storing data on Cloud computing solutions gains increased acceptance.
Cloud computing: What initially began as a buzzword/phrase is now steadfastly becoming a way of life for most of us – whether we are aware of it or not. For the longest time, discussions on cloud computing invariably interested the technophiles and legal blogosphere while alienating almost everyone else – until the ease of use started making an impact on everyday lives. When behemoth corporations like Google (with Google Drive) and Apple (with iCloud) adopted cloud and presented it to the masses, it became more palatable and trustworthy to the public.
Yet Cloud goes far beyond being able to access your music and family photos from remote locations. What corporations like Apple and Google did was remove much of the remaining suspicion around Cloud from the public mindset. While we all have different roles and career paths, regardless of whether we are CEOs or receptionists, we are all, ultimately, consumers. It is perhaps this shift in perception that has some experts predicting IT spend on Cloud-based services to outstrip traditional technology setups in 2016. And it’s hard to argue with some of the benefits. Access to information is undeniably easier and more convenient, as is integration with existing and new services. IT costs are considerably lower, with most Cloud setups being based on payment for server space used as opposed to maintaining dormant hardware in anticipation of growth. Finally, and crucially, it is safe and secure – contrary to much of the earlier perceptions.
At Thomson Reuters, Cloud-based services are on the increase, and it bodes well for our clients as each additional Cloud-based solution opens up integration opportunities with an extensive suite of products and capabilities.
For decades now, Cyberbahn has effectively managed crucial transactions and vital information for our clients. With guidance from Thomson Reuters’ dedicated internal security team, our ability to maintain the current high levels of security and integrity will only increase as we expand our solutions.
We have recently launched our Entity Management Solution, an exclusively Canadian cloud-based service. Our data centre facilities (SSAE 16/ISAE 3402 SOC 1 Type II and SOC 2 Type II certifications) are all based in Canada. Data storage equipment is co-located, each facility being staffed with 24/7/365 onsite security to protect against unauthorized entry. Access is monitored and controlled with the aid of biometric readers and two factor authentication. The application itself makes use of TLS 1.2 security to encrypt data while it is in transit, and our entire solution undergoes mandatory vulnerability scans on a regular basis.
Cyberbahn clients can rest assured that the integrity and safety of their data remains key as we forge ahead with an exciting array of new offerings.
Our Entity Management Solution helps you work smarter, not harder.
