The Cloud In Action
“So you hear about ‘the cloud’ all the time but you haven’t actually understood what it is? What can you do with it? And why should you use it? Hopefully we can give you some direction!”
‘The Cloud’ in relation to computing terms simply means storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet – instead of just on your computer’s hard drive. When you use Cloud services, you access your data and programs over the Internet. You may also have data synced with other information over the Web.

Call us to talk about how to secure the integrity of your business email systems and prevent hacking attacks through all of your electronic communication channels.
IT & Data Security
At ACS we take cyber security very importantly. Security of data and information is a key business focus and one that left to chance, can potentially bring the whole business down.
With cyber security constantly evolving, it is a balancing act to stay protected and avoid the risks of a serious cyber attack or corporate information confidentiality issue.
We protect your data confidentiality – on site and in the cloud. We detect unwanted threats and protocols, restrict access to the people that need it and ensure client confidentiality. We also offer managed antivirus services, web protection services, managed use of websites and content and zero-hour security for monitoring and alerting.
If protecting your intellectual property is important to you too, talk to us about how we can offer multi-layered solutions to protect you, your business, your staff and your customers.

Virtualisation is the process of creating a virtual machine in a software environment, which used to be on a physical machine, to distribute server tasks more evenly.
Hosting the virtual machine on a Microsoft Hypervisor machine in your office is one option and it can host one or more software servers or workstations on it. Another option is a hosted cloud-based server which can be accessed from anywhere at anytime for your business.
Benefits of working through ACS’s Virtualisation service are limited hardware to manage with less down time and electricity consumption, built in disaster recovery and more business flexibility.
