Cloud security is a major concern for companies that undertake digital transformation strategies. After all, virtualizing IT capabilities and services can create a sense of loss of control.
A study by the Ponemon Institute in several countries, including Brazil, points out that 33% of respondents are unsure or do not agree that their organizations are committed to protecting confidential information in the cloud.
Therefore, ensuring that data produced, stored and shared in cloud computing is always available, complete and reliable is a very relevant topic.

The word “public” may initially give the impression that the use of software and virtualized equipment is not safe, but this is not true.
The public cloud is so named because it is maintained by a provider that delivers resources to multiple customers from one or more data centers. This practice follows strict information security protocols, including well-defined access and operation layers.

Hiring resources from a public cloud, therefore, does not mean opening business data to the general public. An interesting metaphor is the following: the provider's datacenter is a building, your company is renting one of the apartments and no one, besides your IT team, has the key to enter this property.
