The Cloud Servers and services are also safeguarded against assaults using brute force detection and firewalls.

Access from anywhere and any time - a company’s data, resources and software is all stored in UK data centres (the cloud), which can all be accessed anywhere on any device with an internet connection.

Faster response times - with UK Hosted Desktop services companies in the UK will have much quicker response times to issues, such as security checks, backups and downtime's, compared to if it was a responding Hosted Desktop service abroad.
