Assessment and tweaking of your infrastructure and systems can lead to drastic improvements within your working environment. Often overlooked, the core infrastructure and its components are central to a business’s day to day functionality.

– VPN – Wi-Fi – Internet
Business continuity and disaster recovery is a must for all businesses that rely heavily on technology.
Is your social head in the cloud but not your professional one? It is easy to get caught in a storm with so many options. We are here to help you choose the right solution for you and your business.
Cloud solutions offer flexibility, scalability, savings and a whole host of additional features that have empowered and increased productivity of many businesses and users globally. To take full advantage of cloud computing, we will work with you to identify your core computing and technology-based processes, requirements, and aspirations and provide a solution that aligns with your business needs. We will tailor a solution based upon current hardware and practices aiming to increase efficiency through the use of cloud computing that enables your business to focus on revenue-generating projects.
The main benefits for adopting the cloud for business use include reduced operational costs, increased security, greater ease of access and the ability to move away from on-premise hardware and infrastructure. Additional security and management features let you feel safe that all your data is secure and retrievable via cloud backup services. Enable your teams to work collaboratively on projects, use virtual desktops to increase user access to reduce business interruption in times of catastrophe. The cloud infrastructure allows for reduced downtime when services do fail and are less susceptible than on-premise hardware when the unthinkable does happen.
Summary of potential benefits:
– Increased collaboration and productivity – Reduced cost
– Increased ease of access and use – Virtual desktops
– Reduction of internal infrastructure – Database services
– Backup and restoration services – Increased security
We offer a variety of cloud solutions/platforms and each has its benefits and characteristics, that can be tailored to fit your business needs.
– Office 365
– Microsoft Azure
– Amazon Web Services (AWS)
– Private and hybrid cloud platforms
– Integration of existing cloud solutions
Digital transformation is the transition to digital technologies in all areas of your business changing how you deliver value to your customers and changing staff cultures in your organisation to facilitate new ways of working. However, digital transformation must take into account the broader business goals and strategy. We work with our clients to ensure that the goals are clear and comprehensive, and we then offer a variety of digital solutions that match the requirements of the business. We have found that leveraging the knowledge and expertise of your staff and users helps identify the different variables that exist within individual companies. One system that is perfectly designed and implemented for sales may not work for logistics. Through analysis and implementation of the above aspects and more, we are confident that we will be able to achieve your desired results through digital transformation.
Backup and recovery services are not just for emergencies. While the cloud offers excellent flexibility and redundancy, the end-user data is not backed up in many cases. Of interest and which some may find surprising is that Microsoft does not back up its cloud servers. It is the responsibility of individual organisations to ensure that their data and emails, the lifeblood of their business are adequately backed-up.
Data loss can occur in many forms, and often it can be attributed to end-user accidental deletion and administrative errors. Additionally, other avenues of data loss can arise such as file corruption, bugs in automation systems and as a result of malicious activity in its many forms. We, therefore, recommend that you have your cloud services backed up regularly to ensure that if data loss does occur, it can be retrieved quickly and easily.
We can offer a cost-effective solution that will keep your email data safe by backing up Office 365 data. This can be easily set up or added to an existing product. All other Microsoft data such as Exchange services, Sharepoint and OneDrive can also be backed up. The backups are stored on Microsoft’s own servers so that your data will never leave the Azure Environment.
Different solutions for all the leading cloud providers are also available. Please get in touch for more details.
Email hacks, data breaches, ransomware, viruses, stolen identity and assets … just the start of a potentially long and scary list of IT Catastrophes that can assail modern businesses…
However, if your IT infrastructure and data is managed correctly and updated regularly, these can easily be avoided. We can help identify any weak spots and build a safer, more secure cyber environment that will help you sleep at night.
We do offer services and support related to one particular area of concern, which we find can be a help to a company who just need a professional opinion to double-check their systems are secure.
Perhaps a new firewall needs to be installed and set up, we can do that for you. We do, however, suggest that your entire IT systems, processes and user habits are assessed to ensure the best and safest results.
– Network infrastructure
Looking at the bigger picture, how your business handles its sensitive and client data is of utmost importance, and we can ensure that it is protected and compliant. The ecosystem of your business processes, the IT components and avenues of access can be complex and some are more resilient than others on the ever-changing cyber battlefield.
One example is Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 is having its support withdrawn shortly, leaving it exposed to attack. This alone is a risk that can be mitigated by moving your email systems to Microsoft 365 on the cloud.
– Information & data
– Cloud and 3rd party app security
Is your internet connection good enough to allow the adoption of cloud computing, are your backups running during peak hours and causing disruption to your staff? These variables and others need to be monitored and assessed before the implementation of any new system. Introducing change requires analysis to ensure that the current system has the capacity and power to provide the necessary functionality. Through non-invasive monitoring and testing, we can asses your infrastructure to ensure it can provide the essential output for your business.
– End Point Security
– End User Awareness
– Vulnerability Testing
