2 Datacenter Hosting Scalable Technology and Insurance for Your Business Datacenter Hosting Gives You the Best of Both Worlds Have you ever purchased a car only to wish you had chosen a different model later on down the road? Maybe you bought that cute Miata convertible and realized that it wasn t the most practical car to use when you needed to move into a bigger house or maybe you went with the F250 truck only to kick yourself when gas prices soared through the roof. Why should you do the same with your IT? Let s take a look at your technology. An on premise infrastructure is a lot like that Miata. It s not very efficient during your busiest times without configuring it for it s optimal use. However, by having it configured, you re now stuck with that bulky F250 truck during the rest of the time, as it s rarely being used to it s full capacity. What a technological waste! By hosting your IT in a datacenter, you ll have the best of both worlds; you ll have access to Miata sized IT and F250 truck sized IT when you need it. What s better? You won t be stuck paying for F250 sized IT when you re only using Miata sized IT. You ll only pay for what you need, when you need it. When you host your technology in a datacenter, you open your business up to dynamically scaling infrastructure. Your usage will mirror what is needed for your business and you ll save money doing it. 2 nsacom.com

3 Insure Your Business Through Datacenter Hosting What s the next step after purchasing a car? Signing up for insurance! Not only is it illegal to operate a vehicle without it, it also protects you and the other drivers around you in case something happens. Different policies cover different things, however most policies on the market protect you from costly out-of-pocket repairs in the event of an accident as well as providing you an alternative mode of transportation while yours is in the shop. Using datacenters to host your IT infrastructure is insurance for your business. When you host your IT in a datacenter, you won t have to worry about being without in the event a problem should occur. With hosted IT, you ll have an immediate failover in case the server housing your data experiences a problem. You ll be able to continue working without interruption, saving your business massive amounts of time and money by avoiding significant downtime. Datacenter hosting doesn t just protect your network from catastrophic events like power outages, flooding, or careless employees either. A large 3 nsacom.com

4 With hosted IT, you ll have an immediate failover in case the server housing your data experiences a problem. number of data losses are taking the form of cyber criminals. These criminals are finding ways to hack into your network to steal valuable company data, much as someone would smash the window of your car to get at your stereo system. Luckily, your auto insurance covers you in the event your car is broken into. Datacenters cover your network in the event your information gets hacked as well. One of the most dangerous things you can do for your company and your IT is nothing. Being complacent in protecting yourself against the numerous threats that are constantly evolving can be a death sentence for your business. Hosting your IT infrastructure in an off-site datacenter is the best form of protection you can give your company. In the rare event that your system does get hacked, the failover is there to ensure you remain up and running. How to Achieve Peace of Mind There is no doubt that the adoption of new and innovative hosting services is increasing. However, many IT executives still have concerns around the security issues that cloud computing presents. Providers today are doing more than ever to invest in ensuring the security of client data. Here are two steps to take to safeguard your infrastructure: 1 Data Governance and Vendor Reporting Policies Most businesses actively using IT solutions such as Dropbox or Google Drive don t realize they are unofficially part of the public cloud. As such, individual employees sometimes have no idea how critical data was leaked. Working as an organization, you need to 4 nsacom.com

5 establish or restate the data governance guidelines to put only authorized data online. Additionally, in order to maintain control, consider verifying the compliance by your vendor. Get vulnerability scans, technical audits, and penetration testing conducted as well as checking for yourself what exactly their reporting policy states and how they improve or manage if your data is sold, exposed, or compromised. By doing so, you re ultimately liable if your data is misused when occupying someone else s servers. Make sure the technology security solution you rely on is compliant with regulations like PCI DSS, HIPAA, EU data protection, or any other law or compliance that applies to you. Scrutinize the contract to make sure your cloud vendor does not own your stored data. 2 Encryption and Backup Do you want government entities who are trying to access your data informing you not your IT provider first? Did you know that by ensuring that no one knows your encryption keys you ll gain an edge so not even your IT provider can access the data? This is accident avoidance for your IT. By utilizing data encryption and 5 nsacom.com

6 backup, you re proactively preventing an accident from happening. Encryption further enables you to comply with data privacy laws in different countries. By using two-factor authentication and blocking all forms of sharing between services and users without account credentials can stop malicious attacker access, alteration, and credential/ confidential data usage in a way that compromises your business activity. You can also avoid giving up your control regarding uptime and access by talking with your IT provider to come up with a redundancy plan that allows you access critical data, despite any troubleshooting situations. Instead of using solutions according to what interests you most at any given moment, they can create a holistic protection plan and incorporate it to address your problems. Security: More Than Just a Term Why is security important in the first place? It lets you know exactly where the data will be stored Being clear on the security measures both you and your service provider should be complying with allows you to be familiar with the exact location of your critical data at any given time. What s more, you will know if the rest of the data they have on the server is kept separate from yours and how it s being done. It lets you know who is able to access your stuff Much like keyless entry, where only those with the key-fob can open your car, only those with verified credentials will be able to gain access to your data. Being careful about encrypting your files prior to their transfer online is just an additional layer of protection. 6 nsacom.com

7 Security is about clearly defining who get the privilege to access it remotely. This includes your employees. For instance, you may have certain data you want everyone to have access to while restricting more sensitive level information to a select few. By using two-factor authentication and blocking all forms of sharing between services and users without account credentials can stop malicious attacker access, alteration, and credential/confidential data usage in a way that compromises your business activity. It lets you focus and be more efficient with how your business operates While you store your data in the datacenter properly and in a way that is both secure and available, you ll gain a competitive edge over your competitors. What s more, you re also able to have a backup plan in order to be prepared if something happens unexpectedly, making you more alert to possible risks and the solutions you ll need to take to resolve them. NSA Computer Exchange Corp. 270H Duffy Avenue Hicksville, NY Phone: Fax: Sales & Client Conclusion Attitudes as well as adoption rates are changing and increasing for hosting. By removing the burden of supporting your own infrastructure with vast expenses on hardware and software, hosting can offer simple and reliable services. Take the steps to ensure security measures have been taken by selecting a highly secure cloud provider and your peace of mind will be achieved through cloud computing. Whether you need Miata sized IT or F250 truck sized IT, let NSA help give you the scalability and protection your business deserves. 7 nsacom.com
