Cloud Services

Cloud Solutions

One of the biggest decisions when selecting new software is whether it will be hosted in the cloud or installed on-premises. While many software providers are moving exclusively to cloud or Software as a Service (SaaS), Ascentas offer customers the option to choose which deployment method is the right fit for their organisation.

Office 365

Cloud computing can make things significantly easier for you and your business.  With Office 365, your employees can conveniently access applications and collaborate easily even when on the move.  

Microsoft 365

Increased Collaboration and Employee Flexibility with Microsoft 365.  Microsoft 365 Business is designed for small- to medium-sized businesses with up to 300 users and integrates Office 365 Business Premium with tailored security and management features from Windows 10 and Enterprise Mobility + Security.  It offers services to empower employees, safeguard the business and simplify IT management.

Microsoft Azure

Azure is Microsoft’s very own cloud computing platform that can provide real-world experience with mass scale deployments. Microsoft Azure is a broad stack of integrated cloud services; analytics, computing, database, mobile, networking, storage & web, that allows organisations to increase productivity and save money.

Why Azure?

With 50 Azure regions worldwide and more than one million servers in over 140 countries, Microsoft’s cloud platform reaches more customers than AWS (Amazon Cloud) and Google combined.  UK based customers using Azure can be safe in the knowledge that their data is stored in UK datacentres that are ISO 27001, HIPAA and UK G-Cloud compliant and it is this reason that Ascentas Group house all their customer data and host their Scan Centre infrastructure in Azure, and you can too!

At the end of the scanning process or document life cycle, destroy and recycle your documents with confidence. The business world is controlled by an ever increasing list of regulations. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Data Protection Act 2018 alone imposes duties on businesses to ensure that all information is destroyed securely. This need to protect corporate reputation makes secure shredding an essential part of your records management program.

Confidential Shredding

Old files get in the way and take up valuable space, making it difficult to find information that you really need. Holding information beyond its required retention period also leaves you vulnerable to risks of theft, misuse, disclosure, legal discovery, and non-compliance fines.

The Shredding Process

From regular collections to one off pickups, our team have the right level of service for your needs.

Ad-Hoc or Bin Rotation

Do you need a one off bulk shredding job or a regular serviced shredding solution? We have a solution for you.
