Encipher Services

We offer several Cloud Computing services including the following:

Cloud Storage

Encipher provides a secure cloud-based service for storing, managing and sharing any kind of data. Encipher employs the highly secure Mezeo Cloud Storage Platform ™. This platform allows for SSL encryption of files for transfer and 256bit AES encryption in storage. As you only pay for the resources you use on a monthly basis, it is more cost-efficient and you can scale your capacity either up or down as needed.

Our storage provision integrates seamlessly with other services provided by Encipher such as Hosted Exchange, Hosted Desktops, Hosted SharePoint etc. Users can upload, store and instantly share files of any type or size including documents, presentations, PDFs, websites, graphics etc.

Features

• Pay-as-you-go pricing

• Seamless integration with other Encipher’s services.

• Instant scalability.

• Anywhere access.

• Support for all file types.

• Advanced security.

• Streamlined sharing and links.

Cloud Backup

Cloud backup provides a highly secured, automated method of protecting your critical business data, whether it is a simple data file or more complex databases such as Microsoft Exchange and SQL. It offers a cost effective , hassle-free alternative to optical or tape backup solutions. Traditional methods can be very effective, but they require capital expenditure to set up, along with staff to operate and maintain them. A cloud backup system avoids all of these problems.

A daily (incremental) backup will be made of all new and changed files at a time of the day determined by yourself. After each backup you’ll receive an e-mail notification with a detailed report of your backup. If our servers do not receive your scheduled backup you’ll be notified as well. Your files will be stored twice at different remote locations to ensure that there’s always a copy available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.

The business data that resides on your computer and server infrastructure is your most valuable asset, and it demands adequate protection. Without a 100% secure backup of this data, your business will be highly vulnerable when faced with situations such as theft, fire, flooding, virus, power cuts or technical malfunctions. Under circumstances like this, an up-to-date backup will be essential to your business continuity. Losing even a week’s worth of data can be devastating to any business, leading to losses of hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Secure offsite data storage is replacing the traditional idea of keeping your data on your own hard-drives. There’s no need to worry about data backup or disaster recovery, as this is all taken care of –just tick a box and it will be done.

Virtual Infrastructure

Dynamic servers represent the next generation of server environment, replacing the conventional concept of the dedicated or managed server. Encipher provides server resources that look and act just like a dedicated server but, because we utilize a Grid and virtualization computing system, they are scalable on demand, ready to meet the needs of your business at any given moment. You simply control the amount of resources you use but without having to pay for hardware when it’s not needed.

Changes to your dynamic servers can be made at any time without the pains associated with moving from one physical server to another. We firmly believe that our dynamic servers are the most efficient way to run your applications, taking advantage of the latest developments in server and software technology to give you affordable access to an on-demand computing model.
