What people think

  • Scott Smeaton
    CEO SSAM Legal

    I thought I would give a little feedback on our move to your Hosted Desktop Cloud.
    As you know when we took the business over there were various legacy system issues that made the migration to the cloud operationally tricky. Your team however did a truly amazing job and the system we now have is fantastic. I am delighted that we chose to work with Ashley Clarke and have already recommended you to other firms. I look forward to working with you into the future.

Keep up the good work!

    Q    What happens if we want to add or delete users

    A    The Ashley Clarke Hosted Desktop Cloud Platform is scalable – you can add and pay monthly per user per month in the normal way, Ashley Clarke will not add set up costs to any user above the contracted number as the build of virtual servers and data migration will already have taken place. You can also delete users and therefore your monthly cost would reduce.

    A    Data is stored in a private cloud area on a hybrid cloud platform within a fully secure IBM Tier 4 datacentre.

    Q    When staff are working on the move, how are communication channels secured for security

    A    No data leaves the datacentre and all connections over RDP SRE secured on SSL.

    Q    Can you offer audited information security that as a minimum is compliant with ISO 27001

    A    The core delivery platform and datacentre meet ISO 27001 delivery and security standards, the underlining cloud and datacentre are compliant with ISO 27001.

    Q    What guarantee does Ashley Clarke give that data is protected in the event of technical failures or becoming insolvent
