Cloud hosting eliminates the need for hefty upfront investment in hardware and software, and makes financial predictions simpler with a fixed monthly cost. Not to mention the setting up and running of your own on-site data centre, with racks of servers, power, cooling systems and the expertise needed to manage it.
Cloud computing lets you have an elastic business model, delivering the right amount of IT resources for each stage of your business’ growth. Great for any business with big plans for the future or if your website experiences large fluctuations in user traffic, as you won’t be limited by your own in-house server capacity or network.
Our highly trained, in-house solutions experts design and build all our clients’ solutions from scratch. This, alongside our established partnerships with leading tech innovators, means UKFast cloud environments are always built upon cutting-edge, enterprise-grade technology to guarantee outstanding performance.
Most cloud services are controlled by the user. So vast amounts of computing resources can be provisioned in minutes, often at the touch of a button. This makes for quick deployment of resources, meaning you waste less time on setting up new applications and can spend more time on developing your enterprise.
Cybercrime is an ever-present threat to organisations today, which is why we offer the highest level of security for your hosting environment. Here are a few reasons why we believe cloud is the most secure option for your data, and some points to consider.
Avoid on-premise security issues
If your server is housed within your office building, chances are it’s in a far less secure location than if your server was housed in a purpose-built data centre. Should anything happen to your offices which damages or destroys your server, you risk all of your business data being lost or at the very least disrupted. But with cloud hosting, you know that whatever happens to your brick-and-mortar business your data is safe in the cloud.
Secure data centres
All UKFast cloud servers are housed in our UK-based data centres, which are ISO-certified, PCI-DSS compliant and secured to Government IL4 standards to provide the best physical and virtual security possible.
Our in-house security experts are on hand to assist with bolstering your security, from basic queries to helping you formulate a comprehensive strategy, and we develop all of our security solutions in-house to meet the ever-changing needs of our clients. So, whether you require a dedicated firewall, DDoS protection or in-depth security audits, we’re here to ensure your organisation is as safe as it can be.
Should the connection through which you access your cloud (e.g. your corporate network) become compromised, your cloud security would potentially be under threat. This is mitigated in a number of ways such as ensuring corporate networks are segregated from your other networks e.g. guest Wi-Fi, and employing other basic cybersecurity measures.
Ultimately, your solution is secure by design, and as your provider we do everything possible to keep your valuable data secure. However, instilling good security practices and awareness in your organisation is absolutely key to protect your cloud – something our in-house security specialists are always happy to assist in.
Clients often tell us how their account manager and dedicated pod of technical engineers have become an invaluable extension of their business - and that's what makes our customer service and support award winning. We're here for you 24/7/365 and always answer the phone within three rings, whether you've been using cloud for years or just getting started.
