There are growing concerns about malware and how it is often held on a cloud server with no knowledge of its presence. There is an alarming trend across many companies, whereby their cloud services are not scanned for malware, or they have no idea whether they are.
In many companies, when malware does become installed, often the source of it is unknown. With cloud services such an important part of distributing and sharing files, it is important that none of them are infected with malware, as it may spread like wildfire.
Without adequate protection for your files, any outbreak of malware could result in a disruption of services and even a severe loss of data. Either of these can easily cause business continuity problems, which if not resolved may cause the affected company to fail and cease trading.
