When you log into your personal hosted desktop, you’re presented with your familiar desktop experience.
All of your documents, folders, emails, software, databases and other files are exactly where they should be, yet instead of being stored on your hardware they’re hosted remotely in our world-class data centres.
Imagine having immediate and stress-free access to all of the information and data you could ever need, no matter where you are at the time.
If you’re visiting a client at their premises, you don’t have to worry about accidentally leaving essential documents and presentations at your office, as they’re accessible from any device that’s connected to the internet.
This means that even if your laptop runs out of juice or you leave your phone in your car, you simply load up your personal desktop on any of your client’s devices.
Another advantage is being able to work from home, abroad and whilst on the move as effectively as you do when you’re sat behind your desk.
All of this comes as standard, plus you’ll never have to put documents onto a USB stick ever again because your hosted desktop is stored in the cloud and available whenever you need it.
Your financial consultancy comes with a lot of information and documentation, much of which is confidential. It’s imperative that this data is only accessible to you and any staff who have admin rights, which is where on-site servers and hardware become a significant risk.
All it takes is for your office equipment to be damaged through an accident, a software update to be missed, or malware and hackers to make their way into the system, and suddenly your entire reputation could be at stake.
GoCloud hosted desktops are designed with the latest security and backup features at their very core.
Every hosted desktop we provide comes with the following safeguards:
Even if there was an incident at your office such as a flood, fire or criminal damage, your hardware may be lost but your desktops and everything stored within them are unaffected.
Meanwhile, our experienced technicians constantly monitor our data centres to nip problems in the bud and keep unauthorised users and viruses locked out at all times.
