The benefits

Ensure compliancy

Stay compliant with Cyber Essentials security certification and adhere to regulations.

Single point of management

Only need to provision a user in a single location and in turn that will grant them access to your email, CRM, cloud services.

Improve collaboration

Ensure users have visibility over the same information, with an audit trail of the documents and the changes applied.

Reliable backups

Back up assets and get the guarantee of fast restores and regular human checks on your data.

Mobile access

Give users mobile access to their work, and increase productivity by letting them log on anywhere.

Consistent wireless access

More accurate upfront budgeting and consistent wireless access even in complex environments.

Security standards

We offer consultancy to help you adhere to best practice and regulatory security standards. We provide and manage boundary firewalls, to protect our clients’ networks against unauthorised access from the internet. These include user access controls in the form of identity, data loss prevention controls, account management and management of special access privileges. Also included are device controls from MDM to hardened macOS builds, as well as patch management services to ensure you’re always up to date.

Identity management

Identity management allows us to provide authentication – ie verifying someone’s identity and authorisation to check and permit/deny access to required resources – ensuring the right people have the right access to resources when they need them. With our identity management services, we consolidate multiple identities to a centrally managed solution that encompasses all services. We’ve been integrating into services for 25 years, so have a broad range of Apple knowledge and the ability to tie together all the services we provide.

Collaboration tools

We provide solutions for collaboration and enterprise file sharing through SharePoint or OneDrive, as part of either Office 365 or standalone software. The shared storage model provides a large storage array running Oracle Solaris, providing a central repository for your essential assets. This allows all Mac users within the company to work on the assets. The SharePoint or OneDrive solution creates a project-based repository for the Office suite of software documents to be shared between a team, allowing for better collaboration and centralised storage.

Cloud-based storage

We provide a backup service called Backup24. This involves a backup of changed assets with full snapshotting on a daily basis, ensuring that all stages of the assets are captured and stored offsite every day. Simple restores are provided as part of this service and, as we take snapshots, any version of the file can be provided back to you as required. Backup24 is ideal for businesses that have volumes of assets that need to be backed up. We can also implement and advise on OneDrive or ways to use DropBox within the business for easy centralised cloud-based storage of shared files.

Mobile architecture

As the workforce becomes increasingly mobile, we aim to bring enterprise services to your mobile users. Expanding on the services provided natively by iOS and macOS, we help our customers to bring their line of business systems to mobile platforms. Granting users access to their core systems from mobile devices opens up a new world of productivity and access.

Wireless consultancy

Our wireless consultancy services can establish best practice for your environment ahead of a new wireless solution, or validate your existing deployment. If you’re introducing macOS and iOS devices into an environment optimised for PCs, we can validate the environment before they are deployed to ensure both groups of users receive comparable service. During the surveys, our consultants take the time to understand the environment, establishing key requirements such as number of devices, usage profile of those devices, the location of any ‘hot spots’ such as meeting rooms and cafes, roaming requirements, security requirements and known sources of interference, such as radar or even Apple TVs.
