cloud security solutionsMany companies have turned to the cloud to protect their sensitive data from the variety of threats the internet contains. PM Kinetics offers cloud security solutions to improve the security and recovery of important information. Businesses all over the country have taken extra precautions by encrypting their cloud data in transit and at rest, to help prevent unauthorized access. We believe it is vital to encrypt your company’s data for three main reasons:

  1. Enhanced Protection

Cloud data encryption offers companies peace of mind through information security. Encrypting your files ensures that only authorized users have access to the information by using a specialized code. This needs to be further enhanced with you managing the encryption keys and not the vendor.

  1. Regulatory Compliance Requirements

Many companies hold sensitive information regarding their client’s personal information. Utilizing cloud data encryption allows them to meet regulatory compliance requirements of HIPAA, PCI DSS, SOX, and the growing list of privacy regulations both in North America and Europe.

  1. Increased Defense

The internet has become a vital component of the business, but with the internet comes data breaches and cyber-attacks. Cloud data encryption provides an increased defense against these data crimes. If done properly, you can safely use the cloud for your data needs.

Our cloud computing solutions offer businesses a sense of security and range from system assessments to cloud migrations. For more information on how your company can benefit from our cloud security solutions, contact PM Kinetics today at (678)-5287399.
