Does Your Business Have a Need For Monitoring The Cloud?

Monitoring the cloud gives your company real time control over all your cloud services, managed servers and SaaS products. A good cloud management solution provides security, data back-up and redundancy, workstation and server management, and emergency technical support.


Whether hackers, viruses, malware or privacy issues, your business’s cloud security is the most important part of a cloud services solution. Active monitoring and management of your cloud network must provide adequate security: this is the most important part of cloud monitoring.

Hackers approach a system through various portals: email and employee portals being two of the most vulnerable. A cloud monitoring solution will provide security for both of these portals. One of the best security solutions for inside jobs is to protect against data loss: remote backup is therefore essential for a cloud monitoring solution. Email monitoring provides protection for your business, catching spam, phishing schemes, and viral carriers before they reach your in-boxes.

Managed Products

Servers, SaaS solutions, workstations and networks all require monitoring and management. SaaS (Software as a Service) requires integration support when it malfunctions. With cloud services, workstation, server and networking monitoring is essential for providing a service with no data or customer loss when one or more hard-drives crash.

Emergency IT 

For any business, remote and cloud monitoring often requires real time IT support, any time of the day. Companies, like radio stations, internet service providers, or telecommunications, have people dependent on their cloud services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week: irrespective of holidays, vacation or family needs. A cloud monitoring services, at the bare minimum, must provide services for your company which give you the ability to respond in real time to all your IT emergencies.
