The ‘All About Data’ series: How Managed Cloud Services Support Customers.

In this interview, Lee Apps – Cloud Services Manager at Tecala – explains how Managed Cloud Services helps customers meet their business objectives, while maintaining data security and compliance in the cloud.

When the global workforce moved to a work from home arrangement, we went from a traditional centralised view of the work place, to people working from different locations, on different internet connections, on their choice of devices, using various (often unsanctioned) cloud apps.

This shift made cloud-based technology the most powerful instrument for driving performance, profitability and growth in your organisation, but it also made maintaining security in the cloud a big priority for many businesses.

In the last 24 months, we’ve gone from primarily defending against lone-wolf attackers, to defending against full-scale government-funded “teams”.

Lee Apps explains: “The main threat we’ve seen cause the most damage is ransomware. Ransomware has been around for 5-10 years, so we’re experienced at facing this challenge. It’s been really exciting to see NetApp’s product evolve to protecting data at the source and having the ability to stop ransomware in its tracks – within 5 minutes of seeing that data change.”

To combat this growing and increasingly sophisticated cyber threat, Tecala has augmented its cyber security practice and has been widely recognised for its end-to-end security services.

Lee continues: “As the threat grows as do our defences. And by partnering with industry leaders like NetApp, we’re able to protect our clients with confidence.”
