The issue of security plays a decisive role in all companies – whether it is a start-up, a medium-sized company or large group. The data must be secure!

Risk of Security Deficits

Recently, many enterprises are concerned about the security of their data and content. Often this is because of viruses, trojans and ransomware. With the help of these, hacker try to reach sensitive data, as it shortly happened with the WannaCry, but other malware too, can spy, encrypt or pass on sensitive data. Furthermore, data stored in a cloud can be spied out rather easily, as it recently happened with sensitive data of the Pentagon that was stored unprotected on an Amazon server.

Companies in particular cannot take any risk when it comes to the security of their data as business interiors and secrets may not be disclosed to the public under any circumstances. To guarantee this, one must take all necessary precautions. The best way to do so is to keep all sensitive data under control.

By now, many companies are already using a cloud-based solution or software as a service (SaaS) when managing their data. This means they are storing them on external servers on the web. Thanks to the technical development, this has become a tried and tested method over the years that is getting more and more reliable in matters of security.

Cloud-based solutions and software as a service (SaaS) offer a convenient and easy way to externally manage data on centralized or distributed systems. Yet, there is always a certain security risk as you give immediate control over your data to the providers of the relevant services.

On Premise as a Critical Security Factor

Risk of Security DeficitsHowever, if you explicitly want to focus on security, an on-premise solution is the only alternative for many companies. With this, you can manage and host your content in your own datacenter – the data is physically on your own servers and the full control of all data always stays with your company and is not outsourced externally.

With an on-premise solution, you also don’t have to worry about the privacy policy of the software provider, as you should do when it comes to the cloud. In the case of cloud-based applications, the protection of your data is not subject to your local data privacy act, but to the regulations of the operator’s country of origin. But with an on-premise solution, this problem is a thing of the past as the assurance of your privacy and data policy is completely in your hands.
