Getting It Wrong In Cloud

Managed cloud hosting offers businesses an effective option for cutting costs, increasing agility and improve competitiveness. However there are significant challenges too. In this paper we review the risks and benefits of managed cloud and the possible impact if you choose the wrong cloud solution.


Reducing Hosting Risks

As agility becomes ever more critical for business performance, managed hosting offers a highly effective way to cut costs, improve competitiveness and better exploit market opportunities.

The Security Mindset

Data hacks are on the rise and businesses with sensitive data are increasingly seeing their systems being targeted by malicious parties. Security is not a checklist of programmes to install, applications to set up or people to hire. Security is a culture within organisations. It’s a mindset about what you’re doing in the cloud. This whitepaper is designed to help you understand how you can introduce the security mindset to your organisation and dramatically reduce the risk of your company being hacked.
