Assured Desktop

Office 365 provides MS Office in the cloud but it requires all your data is held in their cloud.  For many organisations having their information onshore in the US, Europe or the UK is unacceptable.

ASL Assured Desktop provides a complete cloud based MS Office desktop that is provided and hosted by a Channel Island company and hosted in secure datacentres in the Islands.  Subscribers can access Assured Desktop from any device wherever they are.

Cloud Computing is an Internet based service where you can share resource, software and information.  It is commonly thought that Cloud Computing services are only available to large organisations.  This is not the case.  Alternative Solution has a suite of services that bring the shared resource benefits to individuals as well as larger organisations.

For a fixed monthly fee Alternative Solutions provide a fully managed solution called “Assured Desktop”.  Each user will simply require a Personal or Notebook computer with Internet Access (preferably broadband) and Internet Explorer.  After entering a login name and password users are then presented with a normal Windows Desktop with applications including MS Outlook, MS Word, MS Excel, MS PowerPoint Other applications can be added that are specific to your business.

Because this is a fully managed service you needn’t concern yourselves with virus, spam or adware protection because the service includes products from McAfee and Marshal to control this.  We do the backups each evening and securely store them offsite, we also monitor the system closely to ensure uptime.  All support is included in the monthly fee other than local computer/printer issues etc. 

With Assured Desktop you can:

• Have access to a full range of applications
• Eliminate the need for servers, computer rooms and expensive IT
• Keep up to date with the latest applications
• Manage your costs, increase or reduce users as your company expands or contracts
