What Exactly Is the Cloud and How Can It Help Your Business?


No matter the nature of your business, chances are high that you depend on your IT services for tasks as varied as emailing employees, conducting financial transactions with customers, and storing company documents. As your business grows, so too can the space your digital records require. If you decide to expand your company to multiple locations or bring on board employees who work in a remote capacity, it can become increasingly difficult to use a locally-based IT system. For this reason, it might be time to look into cloud services for your business needs.


The cloud is the designation given to any storage system housed through the internet. This system can be particularly useful for businesses with large storage needs. It can also provide companies with better workplace efficiency, as employees working on a business trip or at home do not have to rely on a local server too far to serve their needs. In the event that a business’s local server somehow becomes corrupt or otherwise loses important data, the cloud can become a valuable backup system as well.


Businesses of all sizes and in all industries can benefit from using the cloud. First and foremost, the cloud can offer the protection that your company needs from an unforeseen event that might destroy your local server. For instance, if a flood or other natural disaster causes structural damage to the location of the local server, your business can mitigate its losses if you have the cloud also storing the data. Second, the cloud can make it far easier for your employees to quickly access the information they need to perform to the best of their abilities no matter where they are.

Let UDT show you how the cloud can increase your business output. We also offer a comprehensive array of other digital services, including security and business systems integration, to optimize your company’s success.

Experiencing a security breach?

Get immediate assistance from our security operations center! Take the following recommended actions NOW while we get on the case:


  1. Determine which systems were impacted and immediately isolate them. Take the network offline at the switch level or physically unplug the systems from the wired or wireless network.
  2. Immediately take backups offline to preserve them. Scan backups with anti-virus and malware tools to ensure they’re not infected
  3. Initiate an immediate password reset on affected user accounts with new passwords that are no less than 14 characters in length. Do this for Senior Management accounts as well.
