Cloud-Based Storage Designed with Businesses in Mind

There’s a place where an unlimited number of files can be stored without slowing down your computer or clogging up your network. These files are kept tightly secured and yet are readily accessible at any time. The files can be uploaded from one device, accessed from another and shared with anyone around the world.

This place is the cloud.

More than half of U.S. businesses now use cloud-based storage instead of their internal networks and servers to store files. Given the number of advantages of cloud-based storage, this transformation comes as no surprise.

Benefits of the Cloud

Just like floppy disks gave way to thumb drives, even the largest of hard drives are now yielding to the cloud. Consider the advantages of keeping data in the cloud over internally stored data.

Anytime, anywhere access. With cloud-based storage, you can access your files during non-business hours and from remote locations with devices such as tablets, laptops and smartphones.

Unlimited storage. No more having to delete old files to free up space, keep track of USBs or watch your computer slow to a crawl. 

Large file transferring. Send large files in one piece without having to yield to email size restrictions.

Remote wiping ability. If your device is lost or stolen, your data can be wiped clean for immediate protection.

State-of-the-art security. Encryptions, customizable settings, multiple datacenter backups, file versioning and activity trackers are just some of the ways cloud-based storage keeps your files safe.

Ease of use. Uploading information to a cloud-based storage site, as well as retrieving it later or sharing it with someone else, can all be done with just a few clicks of the mouse.

Professionalism. Design a user portal custom to your company brand and seamlessly integrate functions to your everyday operations.
