General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Expert Q&A

The EU's new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is coming into force on 25th May 2018 and most businesses will have a lot to prepare to become compliant. The law aims to allow citizens to regain control of their personal data and create a standardised level of data protection throughout the EU, with a view to influence responsible data practices on a global scale. Find out how BREXIT impacts compliance requirements and get expert answers on GDPR with this Q&A guide.


Not All Clouds Are Created Equal

Why are more and more businesses turning away from on-premise hosting and moving to the cloud? In the UK, the benefits of virtualised storage led to a 75% increase in cloud uptake between 2010 and 2015 alone. This trend is set to accelerate at an even faster pace over the next decade. Businesses that haven't integrated cloud into their IT strategy yet should consider it now, or risk falling behind as cloud hosting and virtualisation continues to evolve. But understanding that not all clouds are created equal is the key.


Cloud-Hosted Desktops

The way we work is evolving fast. With the flexibilty and efficiency of BYOD office environments quickly becoming the norm, data storage has to catch up to counter the increased security concerns associated with employee-owned devices. Cloud-hosted desktops - Virtual Desktop Infrastructure and Desktop as a Service - offer a solution to this problem. In this whitepaper we discuss the benefits of VDI and DaaS as well as which flavour of cloud-hosted desktop is right for you.
