Is Cloud Based Software growing Trend? A Discussion


Cloud computing is an on-demand access, we can compute resource applications, servers, data storage, development tools, networking capabilities and more via the internet where it can be hosted at remote data center managed by a cloud service provider CSP. The CSP makes these resources available for monthly / yearly subscription fee or bills them according to usage.

Advantages of cloud computing:

·       Lower IT costs.

·       Improve agility and time to value.

·       Scale more easily and cost effectively.

·       Visualization of the data.

Cloud Based Software:

Software which is hosted in the cloud does not need storage to store the data internally, that we can access and use via browser in our system or phone where we don’t want to be specified about the storage path.

Cloud technology works through data centers. Instead of using the storage space on your phone, computer or tablet, your information is housed in virtual servers. These virtual servers connect to huge data centers which have the infrastructure to store and protect your data. These Cloud based Software companies will  be safe and secure.

Advantages of Cloud based software:

Speed to market:

Marketing the app will be quick while the data are developed in the cloud.

Data Security:

 The Cloud have backup process so the hardware failure will not loss the data.

Savings on equipment:

Cloud computing uses remote resources, saving organizations the cost of servers and other equipment.

Security of the Cloud Storage:

It’s natural to wonder if your data is safe when it’s stored in the cloud infrastructure. After all, your files, photos and videos are being stored on servers that are not under your control. You might wonder how vulnerable these servers are to cyberthieves.

Though; The data that you save with cloud service providers may likely be safer than the information you’ve stored in your computer’s hard drive. Remember, hackers can use malware and phishing emails to get the information stored on your own devices. They might freeze your computer, demanding a ransom before they’ll release the files and data they’ve frozen.

“The security measures undertaken by larger companies providing cloud services are likely to be more robust and powerful than what you have protecting your home computer and devices.”

Consistent security updates:

How often do you ignore those notifications to update your operating system, browser or email service? That’s a no-no in the world of computer security. Those updates often contain tools designed to protect your devices from the latest viruses or malware.

When you store your data in the cloud, though, the companies overseeing the servers should be consistently updating their security measures. You won’t have to worry about forgetting to run an update. Your cloud service provider will regularly update its security measures.

AI tools and auto-patching

Cloud providers are also turning to artificial intelligence, or AI, to help protect your data. This is important: It’s not easy to find experienced security professionals to oversee data. Cloud providers, though, can instead turn to AI to tackle at least the first level of security analysis. These programs rely on built-in algorithms to seek out and identify possible vulnerabilities in security measures.

Built-in firewalls

Cloud providers rely on firewalls, too, to help protect your files. As the name suggests, this technology acts a bit like a wall keeping your data safe.

Firewalls, which can be hardware- or software-based, apply rules to all of the traffic coming into a network. These rules are designed to filter out suspicious traffic and to keep your data behind the wall. This makes it more difficult for hackers to slip malware or viruses past the security measures used by your cloud service provider.

Redundancy (ultra-backed-up data)

But what about hardware failures or power outages? Will you be able to access your data if your cloud provider suffers a natural disaster or large-scale outage?

Yes, because most of the biggest cloud providers practice redundancy. This means that they copy your data several times and store them on many different data centers. This way, if one server goes down, you can access your files from a back-up server.

Third-party security testing

Your cloud provider should also hire outside security companies to test their servers and software regularly to make sure they are safe from hackers, cybercriminals and the latest malware and viruses. This outside testing boosts the odds that your cloud provider will have the defenses needed to keep your files away from hackers.


Enable two-factor authentication

You can make life more difficult for hackers by enabling two-factor authentication. As the name suggests, two-factor authentication requires you to provide two pieces of information when logging onto a site.

Say you are logging onto your bank’s online site. First, you provide your username and password, as usual. Then you wait for your bank to send a code to your email address or phone. You then enter this code online to access your accounts. This extra step makes it more difficult for hackers to get at your emails, personal information or financial information.

Statistics in Cloud Computing:

Cloud Computing a vital roll in many sectors because in these modern days every data we acquire are big data. Cloud computing helps to leisure the work of the system storage. So the statistical view of the cloud based software on the sectors in India.
