    Improve the Versatility of Your Business, Without Compromising on Security.

    Cloud computing is becoming more widely used in the UK's defence sector to reduce IT costs, improve agility and increase efficiency.

    While cloud-based computing services are perceived to be inherently secure, it’s important to ensure the safe migration of data when undergoing such a major transformation within your business. This is where a cloud assessment comes in.

    The assessment will give you an insight into how your data is being used, who has access to it and where it is stored, as well as insight into any potential protection gaps that could be prone to breaches.

    What is a Cloud Assessment?

    Cloud assessments are a key part of the migration process and are designed to help you create and implement a successful migration to a cloud-based business environment.
