Using the cloud for any critical corporate data is a fools' errand. Though the vendors will tell you of their great security, nothing is truly secure on the web. And it is made even more insecure by having centralized storage locations such as the Cloud that can host the data from multiple companies all in a single facility or several such facilities.

Cloud hosting has been shown to be quite vulnerable to breaches and security specialists have been wary about this type of data storage for quite some time.

Cloud hosting marketing is directed at reducing costs, not increasing a company's security. And since so many companies have been shown to not really care all that much about strict security, the Cloud hosting plans make a very tempting alternative to paying additional employees to maintain their own internal storage services along with the corresponding hardware costs.

Think about it. If a company deems it worthwhile, it probably isn't...
