What Should You Look for in a Regulatory-Compliant Cloud Provider?

There are numerous factors to consider when selecting a cloud provider for your business. Understanding what to look for can be difficult, but taking the time to properly vet a provider is critical, especially when industry regulatory requirements are involved. Cloud providers come in all shapes and sizes; let’s unpack the most important factors to consider when selecting a vendor for your organization.

Experience – How long has the provider been operating in this space?  How experienced are they at building solutions for organizations like yours? You should entrust your data to a company with a proven track record.

Support – Another factor that must be carefully considered is support. Will you be able to get help quickly and easily if you require it? In some cases, the only way to get help is through a chat service or a call center. These solutions – while sometimes effective – can leave you feeling like a low-priority when you and your company need help the most. In other cases, you may have access to a dedicated resource, but there is a good chance that time and access will be limited. Before selecting a cloud provider, inquire about the level and type of support you will receive.  JENLOR prides itself on providing live, 24/7 support to our clients.

Compliance with the Cloud – Next, select a cloud architecture platform that can assist you in meeting compliance standards specific to your industry and organization. Whether you are required to comply with GDPR, SOC 2, PCI DSS, HIPAA, or another framework, make sure you understand what it will take to achieve compliance once your applications and data are housed in a public cloud infrastructure. Make sure you understand your responsibilities and which aspects of compliance the provider will assist you in checking off.
