All our office functions are carried out in the Cloud. Our servers are located in two of Europe’s most secure data centres. Both sites are accredited and certified to ISO27001 and PCI DSS security standards.

With our business data never leaving the secure hosted desktop environment, there is no risk of it being stolen on a portable device such as a laptop.
Desktop hosting offers unparalleled data safety and security, which cannot be matched by a normal desktop PC set up.


Both our sites guard our hosted systems and data from every potential threat or disaster that could compromise the availability and safety of your business critical data.

The facilities in the data centres are state-of-the-art, nuclear bomb proof data centres that previously served as Ministry of Defence and US Air Force command and control centres. Both have benefitted from millions of pounds of additional investment in power and cooling. This delivers an environment for your business data that is resilient and secure.

The data centres have control over security, power, cooling, access, maintenance, and do not allow unescorted access onto the data floors.

All transmissions over the Internet to and from our hosted desktop are encrypted.

We use SSL encryption – the same as that used for online banking and secure payments.

Additional protection is provided by enterprise grade firewalls on our network, with anti-virus software and intrusion detection on our systems to monitor and block any unauthorised access.

Each customer’s data is partitioned in separate storage containers to ensure there is no possibility of unauthorised access.

We use randomly generated passwords.

The only people with access to your data, outside of our organisation, are the IT staff with restricted access provided to certain trusted software providers as and when necessary once authorised by the customer.

All data stays in the UK.


Two-factor authentication provides an extra layer of security to our local and remote logins.


The transmission of information via the internet is never completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your electronic information transmitted to us and any transmission is at your own risk.
