Creating a Roadmap to the Cloud will aid in the transition and help make it seem effortless. Communicate what your goals are, and we will help you meet them.

Cloud services generally provide a standard security assessment. Even so, there are still risks and liabilities that need to be assessed in order to effectively determine if the service and its security is safe for your business.

Ease of access to data, flexibility, increased efficiency, integration, and lower costs are just a few of the benefits to migrating to the Cloud. However, if done incorrectly, migrating to the Cloud can prove to be costly and more of a hassle than anticipated. Improper handling of the migration process can lead to data leakage, dropped connections, latency, longer than necessary system outages, low performance, excessive money and time spent, and failed migration overall, to name a few. In addition to the network issues that may occur, there is also the human factor of improper training of the IT department resulting in lack of ability to handle the shift as well as integration too fast or too slow for personnel to properly adapt to the change. HighPoint Technology Group can help you during the whole process, from setting up a migration strategy, to migrating, to monitoring and managing your Cloud after migration is complete, or any piece in between. We will help you define your goals and build a strategy. The strategy will take into account your business needs when choosing and setting up a Cloud Infrastructure so you only pay for what your business needs. When the process begins, our expert technicians will ensure that it is done securely and in a timely manner to prevent any data leakage and unnecessary downtime. Moving to the Cloud does not have to be difficult, costly, or time consuming. In accordance with a custom SLA, we will help your migration to the Cloud smooth and efficient so you don’t spend excess time and money and can get your business running in a more productive environment.

Office 365 / G-Suite

Migration to Office 365 or G-Suite can be advantageous for your business. Using an MSP will help you get the most out of Office 365 and G-Suite at the best price. HighPoint Technology Group is capable of maximizing the effectiveness of these platforms for your company at an affordable rate. These platforms come with standard security practices, which do not cover all security needs. Also, though these platforms offer a variety of features, they came with an added cost.  Improper integration can result in issues with using the services effectively. By going through HighPoint Technology Group to procure licenses for these platforms, HTG will use security compliant practices in accordance with your business needs, use only the features that best suit your business, and ensure that the platforms have been integrated properly as well as monitor their security and use. An SLA will be customized to your business, outlining your business requirements and what need to, so you don’t overpay and still get the services that will keep your business running effeciently.
