    There is a growing demand for cloud-based solutions and nowadays we all store documents, photos, and videos on the cloud. Typically users save the files such as photos, videos, and documents locally in their system. This may lead to insufficient storage available on their system, to overcome this hurdle they can simply store the data on the cloud with the help of the internet and retrieve their files from anywhere in the world using any system.

    The data stored in cloud servers are protected by data centers and hence they benefit from a high level of security. There are many measures taken by cloud vendors to protect our data in the servers some of them are as follows:

    · Event logging: They keep a record of everything that happens on the network so that their security analyst can keep track of any potential threats which will help them prevent potential security breaches.

    · Encryption: In case their servers are breached all the data stored in them are encrypted and hence they aren’t able to access the stolen data without the secret key.

    · Physical security: Data centers are physically secure as most data centers have 24-hour monitoring, biometric system which may require fingerprint verification or even retina scan, and armed guards. These measures make it secure enough to prevent them from being accessed physically.

    · Intrusion Detection: Cloud storage of an account can be accessed by many users at the same time. So there is a need to identify any potential unauthorized person trying to break into the system. Having multiple levels of detection ensures that the cloud vendors can stop intruders who break past the network’s initial defenses.

    In the present day, the level of security provided in cloud storage makes it very secure, and working on projects and saving them on the cloud makes it easier for fellow co-workers to access the data easily.

    The cloud data is pretty much secure, their cybersecurity team prepares for what is needed to protect in case of a data breach occurs. They prepare for policies, procedures, and tools designed to enable the recovery of data in case of a data breach and allow an organization to continue operations and business.

    There are multitude of way in which cloud data can be secured from user end and one of the easiest way is to use two-factor authentication. The most commonly used two-factor authentication that most of cloud services provide is sending a secret code in the form of OTP either through e-mail or other form of method such as Mobile SMS after entering the secret key along with the key can we access the cloud data. This ensures that there is no way for hackers to access the data even if they know the password.
