The cloud puts security in the hands of security experts
Believe it or not, placing corporate data in the cloud is likely far more secure than managing it yourself.
Cloud solutions employ the latest technologies, highest standards of scrutiny and leading security experts to protect your data. And they enjoy economies of scale that allow for continuous auditing, investment and innovation.
The result? A network that's harder to breach from the outside, less likely to fail from within - and backed-up automatically so you never lose a file.
Win-win: reduce IT costs and improve
productivity at the same time
It’s not often that a cost-saving measure also offers such potential for productivity gains.
But when everything runs over the Internet, your employees can access, edit and collaborate on documents using their mobile device or tablet computer from anywhere, at any time.
Even if they’re not in the office.
When you add it all up, the numbers speak for themselves.

A more flexible and efficient
way to run your company
Cloud computing should change your company across the board - not just in the server room.
Savings made from the small, predictable pay-per-user costs each month are a great place to start. But it’s the increased flexibility and scalability in every department that will make all the difference, ensuring you’re perfectly placed to react to opportunities as they happen.
It's not just an IT thing.
It's a competitive advantage.
It takes a lot of time, effort and money to maintain a company’s IT infrastructure.
Cloud computing changes that.
It's how we'll all be working in the future - a world where business applications are delivered over the Internet and can be accessed via any device, wherever you are.
And with less time spent just keeping the wheels turning, it means your IT team will be free to be the strategic asset they should be.
5 things you need to know about the cloud
A perspective for financial and strategic decision makers
93% of companies think cloud computing will be key to their success in the next 12-18 months
Cloud computing has been called the next seismic shift in the way business is conducted, ‘as inevitable and irreversible as the shift from steam to electric power'*. In fact, independent research tells us that financial decision-makers already know this – but it also tells us you may not have all the information needed to make an informed decision.
So spend five minutes with your head in the cloud.
It could change everything.
