When dealing with cloud computing, one of the top questions we receive at Pendello Solutions is, “Is the cloud safe?” What most people mean by this question is, “How is the cloud a better option than having my data and applications on-premise?” As with anything in today’s business world, security needs to be verified. There are definitely perceptions of the cloud and this week our focus is to take a look at these perceptions and decide truth or myth.
The cloud is always a hot topic and with good reason as it is continuously evolving. There are many questions about the cloud. Is it safe? Is it for me? Will it save me money? But, before we can explore these critical questions, we have to cover the basics being, what is it? We have all heard of the cloud, but very few truly understand what the cloud is or where it resides.
On the road again, I can’t wait to get on the road again….or can we? Many jobs require a great deal of pavement time. Whether that is to and from the office or for many, the car is your office and your time on the road is where you literally work. This is why we at Pendello were so excited for Ford’s announcement at CES 2019 that by 2022 they will be equipping all cars with C-V2 5G technology. This new and exciting technology will allow for car-to-car communications and will hopefully save lives, money and the hassle that is associated with accidents.

Large corporations like Google and Facebook, who have extreme needs to secure data are already on board with Yubiko and have seen great success with their security needs.
