The main idea behind the cloud is that you can access all your information over the internet without having any detailed knowledge of the infrastructure used to enable it. Do you need to know about it? We don’t think so. Just like you don’t really need to know what the phone company or electric company does on their end to enable calls and allow the lights to go on when you flip the switch; and, you really don’t want to know as long as when you plug into it, it works.
The cloud is still evolving and the latest innovations in cloud computing are making business applications even more mobile and collaborative. Your constituents expect that the information they care about will be pushed to them in real time and this is the direction of business applications in the cloud as well. Moving your organization to the cloud will make keeping up with your work easy.

Are you sure?
Cyber attacks fall into two broad categories: breaches in data security and sabotage. Personal data, intellectual property, trade secrets and information relating to bids, mergers and prices are tempting targets for a data security breach.

Budgeting for IT security is one of the most important things you as a company can spend your money on. Experts hiring, staff training and creating a bomber proof security policy can be big money and time cost. However the cost of a data breach will almost certainly have a much, much greater monetary cost than the security system did. Utilizing our specialists focusing on their job will make your job easier.
