While on-premise storage may seem more secure since it is both physical and tangible, the requirements needed to maintain a high-security level can be more demanding and costly for your business. With cloud applications, security features are built-in and real-time updates are integrated into the framework so your business is always working from the latest versions, with the best possible protection and security.
