For every business that needs to develop its IT infrastructure, cloud computing has emerged as a reliable method. Like any other service, however, the cloud too has certain flaws and issues associated with it!

Watch out for these 5 risks when you adopt cloud computing solutions for your business:

1. Data Transfer

Everything moving between your network and the services that you access in the cloud passes through the Internet. This is the reason data security can be a major concern with cloud computing. It remains vital to ensure that your data traverses a secure channel.

Encrypting it with the help of standard protocols is the best way. Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) is the best example.
2. Software Interfaces
You must be aware of APIs that connect you with the cloud. It can be a big, fatal mistake to rely on unprotected interface. Prefer using services of a cloud provider that employs access control techniques for authentication and monitoring.
3. User Access Control
Since virtually anyone can access your stored data within an organization, it is important that you have access control over your employees. If it is important to provide access, divide your data on priority and sensitivity bases. Monitor all those who manage and use your business data.
4. Data Security
When on your providerâs servers, your data must be fully encrypted. Not all cloud companies can ensure complete protection. Ask your provider how they secure data when in use or accessed through cloud-based applications.
5. Data Separations
Since all cloud-based services share space and resources on servers, they are prone to attacks and breach. Make sure your cloud provider is using the latest, tested compartmentalization techniques. Lay emphasis on preventing access for other customers into your virtual space.
