Hosted server and desktop technology is an innovative new method for delivering systems to end users and businesses. Part of the ‘cloud computing’ concept, a hosted system looks and acts exactly like a traditional server/PC but, instead of residing locally, all software and data are securely housed in our state-of-the-art data centres. Hosted systems offer numerous advantages in terms of cost savings, security, resilience, flexibility and reduced management.

Microsoft® Office 365 is a hugely powerful collection of programs and services for sending email, storing documents, and collaborating online. Office 365 is subscription-based, so you pay as you go.

There are a variety of reasons for performing a penetration test. One of the main reasons is to find vulnerabilities and fix them before an attacker does. Sometimes, the IT department is aware of reported vulnerabilities but they need an outside expert to officially report them so that management will approve the resources necessary to fix them. Having a second set of eyes check out a critical computer system is a good security practice. Testing a new system before it goes on-line is also a good idea. Another reason for a penetration test is to give the IT department at the target company a chance to respond to an attack. The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard, and other recent security recommendations and regulations, require external security testing.
