Security in 2020: Why This is the Year to Move to the Cloud

Are you still using thumb drives? If so, you should know – this is a bad idea. Now is the time to move to the cloud, which is a safe and tech-savvy solution.

Some of the benefits offered by using the cloud include:

• The cloud is faster, which saves time and labor.
• Ability to access the video from any location.
• No need to have multiple copies.
• It’s efficient.
• Automatic back up and duplication in data centers.
• Available for use in the future.

Reduce the Risk of Transmitting Malware and Viruses

With the cloud, there is no risk of malware or a virus when you share videos via the cloud. Also, video clips are only able to be viewed by those who have access to the link and for improved security, you can enable a password to access the link.


Lengthened Chain of Evidence

If you share security videos or anything using physical media (e.g. a thumb drive), the process may involve multiple people who should not necessarily be involved. You may even use a courier to deliver the media, having it pass through even more hands.

However, a video on the cloud can be shared directly and instantly with the authorities or another party. Also, the date and time stamp are built-in, and no other people have to be involved in the process.

As you can see, the cloud offers an array of benefits and it is something worth investing in. If you don’t use it now, consider doing so right away to prevent other issues

 There are some steps you can take to protect your skin. For example, using sunscreen, treating signs of irrigation right away, and don’t pick or scratch an affected area will help reduce issues and irritation.
