The Microsoft Cloud is like a playground, tools and services seem unlimited and are instant available. To pick the right tools and licenses is crucial, you want the services that suits your organization best, and a seamless integration with your current systems in the Cloud, hybrid or on-premises. You want to keep costs manageable, be able to allocate them to different departments, and – very important these days – be able to adapt to changing circumstances inside or outside your company. And a no-brainer; services must be secure.

Microsoft Teams has gradually become indispensable in many organizations. The home office situation has led to significant growth in the number of organizations using Teams for meetings and communicating with each other. Microsoft Teams is therefore already functioning as a business-critical application in many organizations because it is increasingly taking up the central position for communication, collaboration, intranet, and meetings.

SECURE.cloud

Where does your organization stand when it comes to security? IT departments do everything they can to achieve the right level, but too often they overlook the weakest link: the user. Do you have enough insight into all possible “shadow IT” – and users who consciously or unconsciously install all kinds of ‘handy’ tools to make their lives at work easier? What about the use of “illegal” software in your organization? Who is using it and why?

SECURE.cloud

As a company, you want to ensure that the security of your systems and data is in order. Ideally, you want to make sure that you, as an organization, have control over your systems and services. Nobody wants to be surprised when it comes to ICT.  In addition, you want to meet the standards that are important to your organization so that you are and remain compliant and that risks can be properly identified and the necessary measures can be taken to avoid these risks as much as possible. And of course, you want to make sure you have well-tested backup procedures and perhaps even a disaster recovery facility.

What happens when colleagues accidently delete files? Are there accurate backups in place of all systems and data? Is the Cloud provider responsible for the backup procedures on your data? These are questions that you would prefer to have answered now and not only when you need to rely on a backup in case of an incident. In a situation where you work with Cloud systems, locally managed servers or using a hybrid solution, deploying Cloud backup technology is a wise decision.

Knowing that your organization is optimally protected against malware and ransomware is a comforting thought. Systems are up-to-date and threats under control. To achieve this, continuous monitoring and proactive and immediate response to (potential) incidents are required. In a time when devices are connected to the internet 24 hours a day, this is quite a challenge. The speed at which malicious software can spread requires an intelligent system. The standard anti-virus scanner is no longer sufficient.

It’s a scenario you’d rather not dwell on: your most important IT systems are down. What is the impact on the organization? How do you get systems up and running again quickly? Are the backups up to date? Questions that could keep you awake at night as an IT manager. After all, an interruption in systems often leads to stagnation in business operations, resulting in high costs, the inability to meet service levels, and perhaps also damage to your image.

Knowing that all firewall rules are up to date, frequently checked, and immediate action is taking place when threats occur is a calming thought.
