Security is a big concern for many organisations and rightly it should be. Cloud can provide better security for data and IT resources than what could be provided by on-premise IT staff. The element of employee loss, theft of data or computing assets is greatly reduced as everything is centrally stored in the datacentre.

Many companies move to the cloud especially because of the increased security measures within the clouds as it is much more difficult and expensive to implement similar security measures on-premise.

Cloud Computing eliminates threats from hackers and reduces the occurrence of intellectual property theft.
