Cyber Security Challenges in Law Firms: The Top Experts Speak
IT Security Central, April 26, 2018

“The single largest security challenge faced by law firms in 2018 is an internal mandate to keep sensitive documents in-house (as opposed to cloud) while facing ever increasing demands to securely access their data from any device, anywhere. The solution is hyper-converged private cloud infrastructure for high-availability and data encryption at rest. Secure access to sensitive documents via desktop virtualization technology for SSL/TLS wrapped applications and data that displays well across PCs, laptops, tablets and mobile phones.” – US Cloud Founder and CEO Rob LaMear IV

7 Tips From Multi-Cloud Masters
The Enterprisers Project, April 17, 2018

“Keeping ongoing management of multiple public cloud environments efficient depends on your definition of efficiency. Cost efficiency is very different from development efficiency…which in turn differs from end user support efficiency, which depends on headcount. Problems commonly arise when organizations prioritize cost optimization across multiple public clouds above all else. This can have negative impacts on end users and the overall organization.” – Jeremy Vance, US Cloud VP of Technology

Experts on the Top Information Security Considerations for the High Tech Industry
Digital Guardian, March 13, 2018

“The top information security concern for the high tech industry is the amalgamation of unique threats coming from all angles that must be considered together. The high tech industry is more vulnerable than most industries, other than maybe finance and healthcare, because of the unique combination of three different dimensions – the products they make that need to be secured for consumers, the information they collect and manage that needs to be safeguarded, and their intellectual property that needs to be protected as well.” – Jeremy Vance, US Cloud VP of Technology

AWS vs. Google vs. Microsoft: Who Will Win the Cloud (and Does it Matter)?
CMS Wire, Jan. 18, 2018

“For many enterprises it doesn’t really matter who comes out top, as most enterprises work with two or even three of the vendors. That doesn’t leave a lot of room for anyone else, however. Amazon has been doing it the longest, they eat their own dog food and utilize their own technologies, but cloud isn’t necessarily their core business like it is for Microsoft. Microsoft has a robust and mature offering, but it faces the challenge of consumers who are averse to any Microsoft product. Google has that challenge as well, but Amazon seems to be more neutral. Google has a very clean and uncluttered offering that does everything that the others do.” – US Cloud VP of Technology Jeremy Vance
