Unlocking the Power of the Cloud – Free Workshop

The Cloud is a technology that has the potential to take your company’s efficiency to new levels. For businesses of any size, running their operations in the Cloud means that they can access their data from anywhere, whilst lowering costs and increasing flexibility. However, choosing the right partner and understanding all of the elements to the Cloud can be complex. Add in the fact that the move to a digital strategy presents new considerations for businesses with changing platforms, cyber threats and an importance placed on secure anywhere working, and you can understand why organisations need a trusted partner to advise them on their journey.

To help your business develop a strategy for the future and a viable blueprint for migration, GCI are hosting a FREE, interactive workshop in Southampton on June 6th 2018. This roundtable session will outline how you can ensure your key assets are protected on-the-go, and showcase how GCI’s technologies - which are provided in partnership with leading vendors such as Microsoft, Carbonite and Fortinet - help you to detect and prevent cybersecurity threats before they happen and guarantee business continuity, making your businesses journey seamless and delivering agility, productivity and round-the-clock security.


What you’ll get from our expert-led workshop:

  • An insight into the WHAT, WHY and WHO of the Cloud to help you plan and understand

  • Knowledge on both the benefits and challenges of the Public and Private Cloud

  • An understanding of why Backup and Disaster Recovery is a key component to your Cloud journey

  • A visual example of how GCI’s security services keep your business safe in a threat-ridden world
