While the idea of keeping big data secure is not new, have the companies which provide these services been keeping up with the latest cyber threats? From viruses to ransomware there is a range of serious malware and programs which can hack into and delete, steal, or lay ransom to your data.

Keeping data secure from threats goes a long way toward reassuring customers that their information is safe with the company they wish to do business.
