Cloud Security - The Five Fears

The world is heading to the cloud. UKFast takes a look at the reasons why some businesses haven't and what can be done to take the fear out of cloud security. Cloud computing is changing the way businesses use the internet. Greater versatility, adaptability and scalability; companies that migrate are reaping the benefits. So why are some businesses still hesitant about making the change?


Colocation - The Migration Manual

Protecting your IT is critical to your business. Migrating to a purpose-built data centre is the best way to ensure optimum conditions for your data, but don't let the complexity of migration prevent you from achieving the solution you need. We've mapped out the five key stages of an effective data centre migration to help you successfully navigate the planning and implementation of your move.


Checklist for Festive eCommerce Success

We all have our opinions about 'Black Friday' and 'Cyber Monday', but there is no disputing the impact these boom periods have on retail businesses - eCommerce in particular. Growth in online shopping in the run-up to Christmas continues to accelerate, with online spend over the 2014 festive period growing by 19.5% year on year to £17.37bn. 2015 is sure to be the busiest year yet for online retailers. With this in mind have you prepared your site for the rush?


Penetration Testing

With cybersecurity firmly on the agenda, businesses are becoming increasingly aware of their organisation's exposure to hackers and the cyber-threats that face their business. Ultimately more has to be done to ensure that customer, employee and third party data remains safe. Penetration testing has become an essential tool used to expose weaknesses before hackers do. Also known as ethical hacking, it ensures that your business remains safe behind security that works.
