On this episode of the My TechDecisions Podcast, we welcome on Aviad Hasnis, CTO of autonomous breach protection company Cynet, to talk about the security benefits of cloud infrastructure.
Both the cloud and on-premises systems have their advantages and disadvantages, but recent attacks against on-premise systems coupled with the proliferation and advancement of cloud-based IT architecture are tilting the scales in favor of the cloud.
A company that owns its own on-premises servers has more control over security, but are responsible for all of the upgrades, maintenance and other upkeep – not to mention the large up-front costs associated with the hardware.
In the cloud, most of that upgrading and maintenance is done by the provider, and organizations can pay for those services on a fixed, monthly basis.
Although on-premises systems have historically been viewed as more secure, recent attacks say otherwise, Hasnis says.
