When you upload a file to a cloud storage account, the file is encrypted during the transfer and when it is stored, it remains encrypted. For even additional security, you can use encrypting software to encrypt the file before it ever leaves your hard drive. This way, it actually gets double encryption.
Sensitive firm information, confidential client information, contracts that can't afford to be lost- these are all examples of data that must be protected. This is why cloud security is important. It can also protect against natural disasters. If fire or flood destroys your firm, or even just your servers, this can be devastating. All your paper files will be destroyed and lost forever. Files on the hard drives will also be lost forever. But with cloud computing, your files remain safe and secure, encrypted, and stored on a server in a completely separate location.
