GetSync’d is a revolutionary cloud based system that offers an Office 365, Microsoft Exchange and Gmail alternative. Many people are well aware of the many benefits that the cloud can offer. For instance, with GetSync’d you can use it to connect with people expeditiously, as well as use it to cut costs from nearly every facet of your business. With the power of the cloud GetSync’d can provide outstanding support, managed backups, and increased productivity. Despite this, there are still many people who are wary of using GetSync’d because they wonder; is it safe to use the cloud?
The answer is yes. However, there is a caveat: nothing is ever one hundred percent safe, especially in the world of technology. Whether you are storing data on a hard drive that sits next to your computer or your system is backed up every day onto a server far away, your data will always be somewhat vulnerable. What secures your data is not where you choose to store it, but how you choose to safeguard it. Thankfully GetSync’d offers many ways to protect your information. It offers hosted anti-spam and anti-virus software, it even offers the powerful Kerio Control Firewall. But, the greatest tool in the GetSync’d safety arsenal is the hosted Zix Gateway encryption.
Many cloud-based systems safeguard their data using something called encryption. Whether you realize it or not, you are constantly utilizing encryption to protect your data online. Whenever you purchase anything on the Internet or sign in to any subscription-based platform, you are using encryption.
Encryption works by creating a long string of seemingly random values that the average person would never be able to guess. These values are generated by an algorithm that is so complex, it takes substantial computing power and time to crack just one encrypted file. To give the user access to their data, a key (also known as a password) is made. In order to benefit from encryption, it is necessary to choose a strong key or password. Your data’s safety is ultimately most dependent on how strong you make your password.
What to Look For
It might be nice to dream of a world where data was never at risk. Unfortunately, that’s not the world we live in. Data security is not based on where you store your information but how you store it. It is necessary to thoroughly research any cloud computing option before entrusting it with your information. This is why GetSync’d is such a viable option for any business. It combines the protection you need with the productivity you want to ensure that you have the best cloud solution.
