Cloud has become an integral piece of modernization for small to medium and large scale enterprises. It has simplified the way we access data and communicate with our customers, vendors, suppliers and stakeholders. Some of the major benefits that Cloud ERP provides are pay-as-you-go model,  high scalability, less maintenance costs, no extra investment in infrastructure, regular upgrades and so much more. 

However, while cloud ERP brings businesses near-limitless opportunities in terms of costs and flexibility, it also comes with risks. The security breach, data breaches, malware injections, account hijacking, phishing schemes are some common cloud security threats. Due to these security concerns, many business leaders and stakeholders are still reluctant to make a move to Cloud ERP.

While security concerns are unambiguous, businesses simply cannot afford to let security concerns holding them back from embarking on Cloud ERP. Especially when you know the series of benefits that it provides to your business in terms of scalability, cost control, disaster recovery option, anytime, and anywhere accessibility and so much more.

Myth: Tenants in the same cloud can spy on one another

Reality: Multiple tenants share storage, processing and other services in a public cloud but there are no chances of security and data leakages as there’s a strong and well-defined partition between each tenant.
