1. Azure Infrastructure as a Service
Design and Architecting a Reliable Cloud Platform
Correctly designing your cloud solution will ensure that your digital transformation journey is successful, exceeds your expectations and addresses your security and redundancy concerns. Our consultants have architected many cloud solutions and bring this experience to every solution.
We understand how important security is to our customers. Security is at the heart of all that we do with the cloud. From regular security training for our staff to rigorous vetting of requests for change, we run and manage secure cloud solutions for our customers.
Achieving high availability used to be complex and very expensive. It was often regarded as something only reserved for larger organisations with substantial budgets. However, with the introduction of Microsoft Azure you can now avail of highly available solutions for your business at a fraction of the cost.
2. Single Sign On and Federated Access
Single Login for all Services
The introduction of the cloud has presented many benefits but has also introduced some operational issues, especially around user access to these disparate systems. All systems that we design include Single Sign On (SSO) and Federated Access. This allows a company to have one username and password across all of its cloud systems – whether it be your login to Sales Force or Office 365.
3. Security, Logging and Auditing
P2V Systems believes that security starts with accountability. All our logins, access and changes are logged and tracked and we’re happy to share this information with you.
All of our solutions come with vulnerability scanning so that we can ensure your systems are regularly assessed and issues addressed.
Encryption at REST
All cloud solutions that we design include Encryption at REST within the storage container and virtual disk.
Multi Factor Authentication
All administrative access to your cloud solution is backed by Multi Factor Authentication so that access by our consultants is as secure as it can be.
Compliance and Regulation
We work with several FCA regulated and PCI compliant customers as well as a number of secure government departments. P2V Systems understands what’s needed to comply with these regulations and provides the necessary compliance. P2V Systems holds ISO:9001:2008 Quality Management and ISO:27001 Information Security accreditations.
4. Managed Service
Supporting your Cloud Solution
All our cloud solutions come with a managed service that takes the pain out of managing your solution. With 24×7 monitoring and resolution, you can focus on your business and leave the cloud to us.
Change control is important to ensure that changes are assessed correctly, are in line with your direction and roadmap and don’t generate any security concerns or issues.
Everything we do is to best practice standards. We regularly adapt and evolve what we do and how we do it based on industry and Microsoft best practice.
We mitigate risk wherever possible – for you and for us. We will push back on change control that we feel may compromise the security or integrity of your cloud solution or business.
5. Backup and Recovery
Multi Retention Capabilities
Using Azure backup, we are able to setup multiple backup jobs and retention policies to suit your businesses requirements.
Being able to recover your backups when you need them is fundamental to any backup solution. Azure backup uses a separate storage vault which we create using Geo-Redundant Storage (GRS). This means your backup data is stored in two separate regions within the Azure cloud.
6. Disaster Recovery Planning
Public & Private Sector Testing
When disaster strikes, will you be prepared? Having a good recovery plan in place can mean the difference between long-term success and being one of the 40% of businesses that never re-open following a disaster. P2V Systems can help you plan and test your disaster recovery plan. We have extensive experience testing both public and private sector organisations.
Azure Site Recovery
We understand that now all businesses are ready to move all their infrastructure to the cloud. Using Azure Site Recovery, you can get best in class disaster recovery capability for your business without the usual associated costs.
Disaster Recovery Run Book
Disasters can be confusing and stressful. P2V Systems will design a bespoke Run Book to implement your disaster recovery plan. This will mitigate the stress and confusion if you need to implement your plan.
