GoCloud’s hosted desktop solutions are significantly more secure than traditional business networks, and yet they’re available 24/7 across a range of devices to allow a business to work flexibly from anywhere in the world.
No matter what people use GoCloud’s hosted desktops for, their valuable data is safe from interception and hacking thanks to high-level security. And when we say high-level, we mean 256-bit encryption, which is one of the most secure methods available.
Of course, the weakest link in a security chain is the human element, as even the most cautious people can make mistakes. That’s why GoCloud implements multi-factor authentication to verify a user’s identity before granting access. Meanwhile, Bitdefender Endpoint Protection prevents viruses from infecting your system through client devices. In other words, there really is no way in for a hacker or hostile party.
Because user devices simply act as clients, they don’t store any of your valuable data, meaning that it can’t be stolen along with the device. This is important for modern, flexible businesses with employees working from company laptops, as well as personal devices like tablets, PCs and smartphones.
If a device is lost, stolen or simply not protected from potential hackers or malware, there’s no danger of your information being taken. Every piece of data is safely stored in our UK-based data centre, so whilst damaging or losing a device is always annoying, there’s no risk of your organisation’s confidential material being compromised.
With our secure hosted desktops and apps, you can work no matter where you are. If you’re on holiday and suddenly remember you were supposed to update a spreadsheet, you can do it from anywhere that has Wi-Fi access. The same goes for writing Word documents on the train, or tweaking your PowerPoint presentation moments before entering a meeting at your client’s premises.
Thanks to the amazing accessibility of GoCloud's offering, the files that you create and edit don’t just stay on that particular device, they also save to your hosted desktop. So when you return to your workplace after a refreshing vacation or an inspiring powwow, there’s no need to replace old files as everything is already up to date and consistent.
Our premises are protected by security professionals and cloud computing specialists day and night, along with CCTV, fire suppression systems and emergency power generators. The result is a minimum of 99.9% uptime, allowing businesses that never sleep to always have access to the files, programmes and apps that matter.
You can rely on us and our support teams to always be there for you and your business, providing quick, effective solutions to any security issues, usually before they even arise. And for extra peace of mind, we regularly back up your data off-site to ensure ultimate safety. Our advanced cyber-security software is kept up to date, with patches and new applications installed as they become available – with this level of protection, the threat from hackers is practically non-existent.
There are so many hosted desktop benefits that can be applied to businesses of all sizes and across every sector. It seems a pretty easy decision to make, but if you need a little extra persuading, it’s worth noting that a recent study by the Cloud Security Alliance found that 90% of businesses who move to the cloud do so because they consider it business-critical.
