Our primary objective was to simplify infrastructure at 36 Bedford Row and move their on site data servers into our Tier 4 secure data centre.
Ensuring our clients were confident that their sensitive data was safe and protected was an essential part of the project. We were able to demonstrate to our customer that keeping their servers in our data centre was far more secure than their basement by taking them on a tour of the centre itself. Physically seeing the security and back-up systems in place for themselves was extremely reassuring for our client. Furthermore, they could see that their data was being held in private cloud owned by a UK company and under the full extent of UK law, which was very appealing for them as a UK based legal firm.
Once the new infrastructure was in place we were able to set up virtual desktops for the firm within the data centre, freeing up the space in their office basement and giving them:
- Full remote access to all of their data systems
- Cost savings on server maintenance and support
- Confidence their data was stored securely at a Tier 4 UK-based data centre
- UK-based IT support they could rely to react quickly in an emergency
- Extra office space and storage
36 Bedford Row now have the robust and secure IT system they were looking for. The only equipment they now have to worry about maintaining on site are their desktop PCs and printers. They have full remote access to all of their data systems which means they can work at any time, from anywhere, giving them the efficiencies they needed in the event of a disaster or emergency.
