04/05/11 — Altec Systems Announces New Cloud Hosted IT Offerings
Altec Systems today announced it is now offering hosted IT cloud solutions as a complement to its hosted and traditional commercial security solutions.
As more and more clients request the ability to work from anywhere, only pay for what services they use, reduce their IT costs, and protect their data, hosted solutions continue to gain wide-spread acceptance.
Altec Systems now answers this need with a full suite of hosted IT solutions.
With cloud solutions (including hosted desktops, servers, software, email, data encryption, and VOIP phones) partnered now with hosted security access to the client’s building or office, Altec Systems’ clients are widely accepting the “one bill for all hosted services” and “pay only for what you use” concepts.
If an employee is added or reduced from headcount, so are the operating costs associated with that employee. This concept of “pay only for what you use” is a value that small and medium businesses relate to easily.
“Clients used to have more reservations around hosting their data in the cloud, often wondering about the security and ability to retrieve their data if they decided to choose another provider. With today’s acceptance of on-line banking, on-line taxes, on-line shopping, etc., it’s more easily understood that using hosted solutions is safe. Data is encrypted for security and easily retrievable, when implemented with a reputable, professional provider,” said Tim Feury, President, Altec Systems.
Gartner, Inc., the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company, published a press release earlier this year stating, “CIOs expect to adopt new cloud services much faster than originally expected. Currently, 3 percent of CIOs have the majority of IT running in the cloud or on SaaS technologies, but over the next four years CIOs expect this number to increase to 43 percent.“
With an upward trend of cloud-based solution acceptance expected at this magnitude over the next few years, Altec Systems understands the importance of this newest offering to its clients.
