Sorry, but how can you be sure that vendor of your hardware/software does not have a key to your network/pc/nas/... ?
Isn't it easier to break in to your house/office and take the hardware that break into "the cloud"?

It's also the matter of trust, this time to trust the gear you buy.

And isn't it generally advised to encrypt the sensitive data? Stored locally or in cloud?

This is question about where to store, not if to encrypt...
