Cloud Data Storage

Cloud data storage is quickly becoming an integral part of business, but with so many options available it's hard to decide which one to use. We at ACT Systems have partnerships with the leading cloud data storage suppliers and work with you to decide on the best solution for your requirements.

What is Cloud Data Storage?

Cloud storage essentially means that your data is stored on servers in a remote location which you access over the internet. It is maintained, operated and managed by service providers that are built on an infrastructure that is scalable according to your requirements.

I am used to a local server, will moving my data change my day to day working?

The short answer is yes, moving to the cloud will mean a change in your procedures.
Your internet connection will play a large role in the usability of cloud data storage. The size and nature of your documents will also impact on usability.
Internet connections are getting faster and faster and are allowing many users to move their entire business infrastructure into the cloud with great results. Other users with slower connections will find working from the cloud clunky and frustrating as all data needs to be downloaded or synchronised with their local PC.
We at ACT Systems know how important it is to have quick and continuous access to your data and we will work with you to ensure the correct solution is implemented.

How secure is my data?

Security is key in the modern world, cloud data storage providers are aware of this and are constantly evolving their own security protocols to stay one step ahead of the hackers. Files are encrypted using 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)/Transport Layer Security (TLS) to protect data in transit.

User Admins will also receive notifications of any new logins from unknown devices to alert you of any potential risks.

There are also advanced features for business users which include remote wipe of devices and advanced security permissions to keep your sensitive data in the hands of the intended recipients.
