We can help with the move AND the security needed as well! We’ve helped businesses work in a more agile fashion, including supporting remote workers by ensuring an on-demand supply of computers, along with networking, Wi-Fi and cloud facilities, and the software needed to make sure your remote workforce remains productive, as well as totally secure. Indeed we recently carried out a project to dial in to all of the home Wi-Fi routers of a client’s staff to determine the strength of security in place.

Many businesses are reluctant to trust cloud storage solutions out of fear over data security. Labyrinth ensure that all cloud storage solutions that we recommend have robust data security controls in place and comply with all local data protection legislation. All solutions that Labyrinth recommend ensure that data in encrypted both is transit and at rest. Data will also typically be replicated in multiple locations to ensure business continuity.

The cost of cloud storage does vary, as with most things, it is important to focus on the value that us provided rather than price. As most cloud storage is fully scalable, you are often able to change the number of users based on your changing requirements. This is particularly beneficial to start-ups and smaller businesses as it allows for flexibility as you grow.

Data stored in the cloud can often be accessed easily, from anywhere in the world. Whist all cloud storage providers vary, they often offer a local desktop client which allows you to access your files from your computers document folder. They often also offer the ability to access frequently used files without the need for an internet connection.
