Hosted Desktops & Servers - How secure is your equipment?

Published on 01/03/2013

One of the true powers of the cloud was demonstrated recently...

We arrived at the office to hear the terrible news that one of our Hosted Desktop/Server clients had been burgled and that their computers had been stolen. But imagine how much worse it would have been had they still been using conventional computing with all their valuable data stored on their local PCs and a local server!

In this case, once the initial trauma had been overcome, the customer could still work on the same apps and the same data by utilising laptops and moving to other offices where computers could still be found.

We are often asked about security when promoting cloud hosted apps and desktops and one of our responses is (without being flippant): No matter how much you spend on physical security, you are unlikely to make your office as secure as the data centre environment where we will host your services.

This unfortunate incident demonstrates one of the many benefits of a cloud hosted solution.  Don't think "...it'll never happen to me..." because it just might.   Now did you switch on the alarm when you left the office tonight?
