When architecting infrastructure solutions, our starting point is your business, your challenges, your objectives. Our focus is on enabling productivity, removing high cost investment cycles and increasing flexibility.
When designing a technical solution, we consider all the technical and practical implications, including how users access applications and data; along with the available or required connectivity and networking.
We will assess the comparative benefits of on premise infrastructure versus fully cloud based or hybrid solutions. This will include a range of specific considerations such as security, data retention, data protection, resilience, integration – and, of course, cost.
Our design teams will draw-up an intelligent solution that brings elegance as well as effortlessness to your business.

Mobile Device Management
The increasing use of smartphones and tablets for business functions brings the potential for incredibly agile corporate IT. But it also raises security concerns. Our tools ensure your staff have secure access to corporate data networks anytime, anywhere, without the risk of leaking sensitive data.

This can be a time consuming and complex process to manage, particularly in larger or hybrid environments. IT Lab offers a fully outsourced patching service to maintain the performance and security of your servers, endpoints, networking and storage appliances.
