Cloud Security

Securing the systems which are out of your direct control

Thinking about implementing the cloud?

For many businesses, “the cloud” is creating opportunities to rethink the way they implement parts of their IT systems.

By using cloud services, businesses can often get better functionality, and uptime than by using traditional in-house methods, and usually at a lower up-front cost.

First Stop IT can help

We have years of experience helping businesses create Cloud Security strategies and implement cloud services. We make recommendations to maximise the benefits you expect, while prioritising security and reliability to ensure your system is resilient to failures.

Security Concerns

If you are going to use cloud services to replace or enhance your existing IT infrastructure, it is important to manage who can access your data, and from where. Protecting your data is paramount, both in storage on your cloud providers’ servers, and in transit over the internet between your provider, and your network.

In addition, by using cloud services you are transferring responsibility and control to a cloud provider over information and systems which used to be under your direct control. You are handing over control of the operations management and losing influence over changes to the computing environment, but with it you are also transferring the responsibility and expense for maintaining those areas of your business infrastructure.

Moving services to the cloud can be of great benefit to your business, but as cloud computing is such a dynamic area at this time it is important to address all of the security concerns and ensure that your choice of provider, and implementation strategy is the right one for your business. We can help you do this with a robust Cloud Security strategy.

“I have worked on a number of clients’ projects with Tai and First Stop IT. I have always found Tai to be a talented IT system designer who listens to the business needs of his clients to ensure that the final solution fully meets their requirements.

He has in depth knowledge of server & desktop hardware, Microsoft software, and range of security, backup, and cloud services. Tai is able to easily communicate and explain these services and features to others who do not have technical background.
