When you’re looking for a New Jersey cloud services provider, there are a few things you should keep in mind as you through your search.
1. Evaluate why you need cloud services.
Knowing how you plan to use cloud services to fit your business needs will help you decide what type of provider your need. Communicating those needs to your potential provider will make sure you’re getting the most out of the cloud.
2. See if there are any complementary solutions.
Is all your business needs purely cloud services? Or could there be other IT needs down the line you may need to expand on? Choosing a company with multiple capabilities will make it easier to keep all your IT support with one company you can trust rather than having to split it up.
3. Find out what kind of security they offer.
See if your cloud provider offer encryption as part of their services. If they don’t, you may want to encrypt your data before it’s uploaded.
If you work in an area that involves sensitive data such as social security numbers or credit card information, you should see if the provider offers two-factor authentication or login notifications in the event of a security breach.
4. Find out if there are redundant backups.
Don’t rely on a single backup. If one backup is corrupted and you lose the physical data you have, then there is no way to recover your information. Look for a provider that has redundant backups for your most critical information.
