Is my data safe in the cloud?
We know that data security is of the utmost importance to our customers who rely on our system to maintain critical infrastructure services. Q-Free uses highly secure, encrypted cloud services to deploy and secure software instances and data.
For most agencies, data is more at risk when stored and maintained in-house. On-prem servers are typically more accessible than those stored in remote warehouses and agencies typically have less budget dedicated to IT security.
The truth is though, that the biggest risk to security isn’t related to where the server resides at all. Rather, it is employees that unintentionally introduce security gaps or leak data. A 2021 Gartner study predicts that through 2023 at least 99% of cloud security failures will be the user’s fault.
