Cloud security is only as good as the photos it does not leak

I can think of very few woman who would want unauthorized nude photos circulated, and as a fellow native of Louisville, Kentucky, it was doubly disappointing to see Jennifer Lawrence, local girl done good, had been hacked and leaked all over the internet.

Sure, it was eye candy for the discerning male eye, as per Craig Ferguson, “Just yesterday, the iCloud started raining nude celebrities.” However, the point of cloud security is privacy and having reliable security, not being fodder for a quick laugh for the late night hosts or having as a business a critical leak of proprietary or confidential information. 


Today, cloud hosting is becoming more and more the norm when it comes to field service software deployments.  ServicePower was a pioneer in true multitenant cloud hosted software, launching ServiceOperations in 2004 with GE Appliances. We’ve continued to innovate our product suite by privately hosting as well as offering SaaS versions of our flagship product, ServiceScheduling, as well as ServiceMobility and ServiceGPS, and demand in increasing most quickly for cloud deployments. 

This is because for our clients, cloud based solutions are incredibly efficient, and perhaps most importantly, minimize costs for infrastructure, licensing and IT overhead. But, cost should never be the only consideration. The most important element, in fact, to any cloud hosted solution is the security offered and managed by the hosting provider, so that you can be confident that photos, customer data and any other proprietary information is safe and secure.
