Mintivo are experts in understanding your business and therefore which of the many technologies such as Office 365 are best for you to use to enable you to achieve your business goals.
Office 365 offers much more than just email. By utilising collaboration tools such as Microsoft Teams it offers integration with external companies as well as instant messaging, availability and video conferencing. OneDrive offers secure Cloud storage - a cost-effective way to retain your data. In addition to the full suite of Microsoft Office products that you and your team are used to, Office 365 also provides lots, lots more.
Increase productivity with cloud-based Office apps enhanced with AI and online file storage
Collaborate, share, and communicate with flexible tools that go where your team goes
Help protect your company against external threats and leaks with built-in privacy and compliance tools
A true Cloud service, you have no servers to maintain or support. With the ability to access your data anywhere, Office 365 allows you to be fully mobile and work from anywhere while also taking advantage of always having the latest version of Microsoft Office available to you.
Office 365 is both highly secure and highly available with data centres across the world. It gives you control over where your data is located, which is essential to be compliant with GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). In order to enable greater productivity and full control of costs, our Microsoft Cloud services enable seamless integration between Office 365 and Cloud server options.
You want to ensure that you and your organisation are safe and secure, and with so much information now stored on the ‘Cloud’, it is imperative to ensure that your IT partner is as concerned about security as you are.
At Mintivo, we identify and take advantage of the wide array of security tools and capabilities. Such tools and capabilities help make it possible to create secure solutions providing confidentiality, integrity, and availability of customer data, whilst also enabling transparent accountability.
A system that requires no capital expenditure outlay and one that is structured so you only pay for what you use. In most cases, this provides significant reduction in costs, and yet it provides you with:
- Identity and control access
- Key, secrets and certificate management
- Powerful automation, reporting and monitoring
- Centralised control of your critical data
- Scalable to allow business growth
There are several ways that your cyber security can be breached, many of which you will be completely unaware of. This has implications for you, your business and your customers. The fines issued by the Information Commissioner’s Office for GDPR data breaches, which includes Cloud Security, can be extremely detrimental to a growing business. Being unaware of security breaches and vulnerabilities is not a defence.
Allow Mintivo to run a highly effective cloud security scan to help build your strategy for server infrastructure. This will identify actual breaches and any areas that are vulnerable to future threats.
This ensures that Cloud services can be just as secure as on premises services, providing many other benefits to your organisation such as cost-saving; increased flexibility and productivity.
When you decide to go on any journey, there is usually lots of planning – budgeting, choices, baggage allowances, packing and repacking and worry about what will get lost on the flight.
The journey, or migration, from on-premises to Cloud need not have any of these issues or concerns. With Mintivo’s assistance, we will ensure that the whole process is managed in a secure and reliable way. There will be no ‘lost’ emails or files and we will also ensure that the migration occurs with no downtime. Users will be completely unaware of what is happening ‘in the background’ during the seamless transition, and more importantly, your clients and customers can maintain contact throughout.
Do you need to work between Office 365 and on-premises Exchange and data services? If so, you want to consider more than simply moving data and users, especially if you need to have multiple domains and services co-exist for any length of time.
Planning for a move is perhaps more complicated than a simple journey. You need to consider having a mechanism for synchronising contacts, free/busy information to ensure users can email, communicate and collaborate during the migration as if it is a single domain. You may also want to consolidate your infrastructure and integrate separate Active Directories (AD) into one. Some of the organisations involved may not be in the Cloud, so there may be complexities to consider solving this issue.
Also, don’t forget you will need to transfer across security, privacy, anti-spam and retention management settings.
If you want to combine, split or move your Domain, why not give Mintivo a call to discuss how we can create and manage a fail-safe plan for you?
In truth, organisations rarely arrive at a set finish point as they are constantly moving forward. It is for this reason that Mintivo not only help our clients on their journey to the Cloud, but also ensure that they continue to utilise the Cloud safely, securely and productively.
Regular updates identify further improvement areas, new software options and other cost-saving opportunities which can better enable organisations to meet and exceed their growth ambitions.
