The threat surface for Amazon et al. is greater than the threat surface for a server on a LAN.

A "cloud" server at Amazon et al. has to be accessible by the intended users. That means that it must be visible to, and potentially accessible to, others on the same network, which in this case is the entire internet. This is true even if there is a portal which regulates access to your server; if it is accessible to you, it may be accessible to others.

A local server in your office should only be accessible to, and visible to, computers on the same network, i.e. those on your company's LAN. it is therefore possible to (for example) configure your firewall to block all traffic to/from the internet from/to your server.

I am not ignoring the possibility of accessing the server via one of the workstations in the company. This is likely to be a problem no matter where the server is situated, and is out of scope for this discussion.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
