Data security has fast become a main concern for business the world over and with good reason. According to Wired.com, “Corporate security isn’t getting better fast enough, critical infrastructure security hangs in the balance, and state-backed hackers from around the world are getting bolder and more sophisticated.” From major universities to worldwide corporations, no one is exempt when it comes to data breaches. The best thing to do for corporate security and general peace-of-mind is starting with a product that doesn’t even invite that sort of issue in the first place. That’s why a single-tenant server is your best option.
A single-tenant server means exactly what it sounds like: there is a single tenant hosted on a server. This means no co-mingling of your data with anyone else’s and you can rest assured that your information won’t be lost in the ether of multiple tenants using one single cloud server. We’ve been told in the past by potential clients, “But I don’t want my information on a cloud service at all” and we get that. Fool me once, shame on you but fool me twice, shame on me. You need to make sure that you’re doing the best you can to protect your company’s data. It’s understandable that if breaches have been an issue for you in the past, or if you’re just trying to avoid one period, that you don’t want to even entertain the thought of a cloud-based system. That, my friend, is where the single-tenant server saves the day.
There aren’t many, if any, other companies out there that can boast a secure, single-tenant server. This has been something we’ve worked on diligently over the years and has been adopted by the U.S. Department of Defense and a number of military branches. Our goal was always to make something agile enough to grow with our clients but also something safe enough that they avoid the headaches caused by security issues. You have so much else to worry about when it comes to running a successful business, you definitely want to make sure this is something that’s done correctly the first time.
Think about this: 150 million. That’s an astronomical number and it’s even more daunting to know that that’s the number of compromised usernames, email addresses, and passwords from Under Armour’s MyFitnessPal app earlier this year. If it can happen to a company as big as Under Armour, what’s to stop possible compromising of your company’s information? Like they say, the best defense is a great offense and the best offense is making sure that the software you’re using is one that is as secure as possible.
There are no real guarantees in life but there are always ways to safeguard your information as best as possible, especially in a corporate environment. You have corporate and individual employee insurance for your company, so you can think about a single-tenant server as an insurance policy for your data.
