Secure Cloud Hosting by SWK Technologies has you covered from migrating your application and IT infrastructure to supporting your environment remotely, enhanced by cybersecurity protecting your data in real-time. Our Managed Cloud Services (MCS) allow you consolidate your support touchpoints and optimize your technology stack maintenance for the best ROI for you, not multiple disconnected vendors. Combining SWK’s knowledge and expertise over software, network management and IaaS, our SCH solution provides you with the means to transform your systems into a streamlined, cybersecure and user-friendly value generation solution.
Here is what Secure Cloud Hosting can do for you beyond application hosting:
Go Beyond Hosting with Managed Cloud Services
SWK’s Managed Cloud Services division represents the marriage of our hosted solutions with the award-winning network services provided by our seasoned engineers. This allows us to leverage this expertise to provide tailored support and maintenance for your cloud-hosted infrastructure built to handle your software’s specific architecture needs in a web-based environment.
Real-time IT Support for Your Software in the Cloud
The transition from on-premise to hosted IT ecosystem deployment will allow SWK’s support personnel to be able to interact with your systems at anywhere, anytime, at your convenience. This real-time availability provides several benefits over traditional models, where there is a greater chance of downtime for either maintenance or a system crashing incident that would cut into your revenue. Once your technology stack is migrated to the cloud, engineers can tap into the backend much more quickly and seamlessly, limiting interruptions to your value generation.
Remote Workstation Management and Protection
The COVID-19 pandemic forced many businesses to shift some or all of their workforce to telecommuting for the first time ever, and even those with some experience working from home had to contend with uncertainty in the scope of the conversion. SWK can help you dispel any ambiguity about your remote workstation management, rectifying any gaps in your distributed network, scaling the number of workstations deployed and ensuring protection for each and every one. When migrating your infrastructure to Secure Cloud Hosting, we will implement a dedicated security net with solutions ranging from antivirus to real-time endpoint protection.
Patch Management & More Frequent Data Backups
Keeping up with the latest updates for your applications (including ERP and productivity suites like Microsoft 365) can be time-consuming, as can having to constantly back up your data, and both of these activities can detract from generating value. However, the consequences of not following up on either function can be dire, and will hurt your bottom line even more. SWK can take this off of your hands when you migrate your software and IT infrastructure to Secure Cloud Hosting, with consistent patch management and hourly backups that keep you up to date and protected without disruption to your ongoing processes.
Traditional MSP VS Cloud MSP
Cloud-hosted systems require whole new ways of business thinking, with a fundamentally different environment that brings new requirements along with the advantages. Without the capacity limits of onsite servers and device storage, web-based infrastructure delivers a virtually infinite level of scalability and elasticity, as well as much faster-moving and much more extensive data proliferation. This creates new opportunities – and new obligations – for IT governance that traditional managed services providers (MSPs) cannot handle without a presence in the cloud.
The Limitations of On-premise Managed Services
Historically, an MSP or inhouse IT staff would be monitoring and servicing an on-premise environment, focusing on endpoints limited to what the hardware allowed before the Internet and wireless connectivity. With the introduction of web channels to applications for communication (i.e., Outlook, etc.) and other functions, the focus shifted to protecting newly opened endpoints from external cyber attack. However, the failure of this legacy thinking is apparent in the number of data breaches over the past few years and the gaps that allowed them – cloud connections transform the nature of cybersecurity, and ultimately the role of IT in maintaining your systems at the user level.
IT Support Built for the Cloud
Cloud MSPs are better equipped to deal with security and other concerns that are unique to a hosted environment, and a combined vendor such as SWK Technologies can support you from implementation onwards for the lifecycle of your solutions stack. Our Managed Cloud Services monitors your infrastructure 24×7 and will respond to anomalies in real-time, saving you from consigning yourself to downtime whenever an incident impacts your productivity. We will also help you tailor your architecture to fit best for your needs and your ROI, and aid your users in maximizing productivity and ease of use no matter their role.
A More Secure Cloud Environment
Cybersecurity for the cloud requires more than basic solutions like antivirus – you need real human intelligence and support in the background, as well as robust user training that addresses the vulnerability of each endpoint. The shared nature of a hosted environment transfers more security responsibilities onto your individual employees, who can also become insider threats without proper vetting and oversight. However, Secure Cloud Hosting can provide you with real-time monitoring and additional protections built specifically to combat all manner of web-based cyber threats.
Cybersecurity in the Cloud
Cloud security requires a more proactive defense program that better identifies and mitigates risks to your infrastructure, provides multiple layers of protections and empowers incident responders to react quickly to intrusions. With even legacy systems being increasingly cloud-connected it is critical to be able to leverage these types of solutions, but most traditional inhouse IT teams or MSPs that serve small businesses are often ill-equipped and too overwhelmed to face this challenge. Managed Cloud Services can deliver this level of cybersecurity as part of your hosted environment scaled to your business size.
