Cloud based backup and networking

Dylan IT have partnered with one the UK’s leading cloud data solutions companies to bring you products that not only keep your data safe, but allow you to access files from anywhere in the world, as if you were sitting on your PC at your desk. Rather than having a server, we can implement a cloud-based data share that everyone in you company can access, from anywhere in the world, on any device. An example might be if you have employees that are out on the road, they may need access to quotation forms on their iPad, or perhaps they need to take a photo on their smartphone of completed works. This all gets files in the central file share, which in turn is accessible by all employees both in and out of the office.

Of course, some of your files may need to reside locally on PC’s. That’s okay, they can still at least be backed up to the cloud, in case of theft, fire or flood situations. This way, your data is always backed up, rather than relying on employees to perform the backups to USB drives at the end of each day.

Managed Antivirus (MAV)

Internet security has come a long way in the business sector. Employees inadvertently downloading files they shouldn’t or opening rogue attachments causes huge disruption to your business workflow, especially if the computer in question is the one that has you crucial software installed like Sage, or maybe you CAD software etc. Antivirus in its traditional form is simply not enough these days. What is required now is the very best Antivirus along with a professional to keep their eye on things. Cue, Managed Antivirus. Where a traditional Antivirus would be likened to a racing car driver taking only a socket set and screwdriver with him in case anything goes wrong, MAV is like giving him a pit crew. All the tools, plus professionals constantly monitoring the data coming back from the race car, or in this case your business computers. This way we can be preventative, rather than reactive. This solution only costs a fraction more than the traditional Antivirus but saves so much more in keeping your computers working, and making you money.

Hosted Virtual Desktop

Hosted Virtual Desktops are the ultimate business cloud solution. Resolve all your IT needs and remove the worry of equipment, upgrades, licensing and support. Hosted Desktops are a cloud IT solution which will offer you flexible, reliable access to your software and files whether logging onto your desktop from the office, home or on the move. Whether you are a start-up or established organisation, Hosted desktops will provide an operational edge on those competitors who have yet to make the move, whilst also reducing your overheads.

What you get is a fully loaded Windows-based PC, with the latest Microsoft Office installed along with Exchange, Internet security built in and cloud backup. This is all built in to a virtual PC that lives in the cloud on UK-based servers. It means that in your office, all you need is a basic PC or PC-on-a-stick, monitor, keyboard and mouse to dial in to your cloud desktop. It means that you can work from anywhere that has an internet connection and from any device. It also keeps your overheads low and provide you with the comfort of knowing exactly what you yearly IT spend will be, as you will have no real hardware onsite that can go wrong.

Microsoft Windows Server Maintenance & Sales

A Microsoft file server is the only way to seamlessly centralise your important data and keep it backed up. It allows all users to have their locally stored data automatically synchronised and backed up without any user intervention. It also uses the best policies to seamlessly deal with sync conflicts if users have modified important files away from their desk and unknowingly created two copies. It also allows Administrators to create user-based policies to prevent novice users unintentionally modifying setup files or picking up viruses. We are experts in this field, we offer Server supply, installation, migration, configuration, maintenance, upgrades, cloud and local backup.
