Office 365 & Active Directory Management
Connected, always and everywhere

Especially now when remote workstations are not just an option, but an absolute necessity, Office 365 helps you in continuing to work efficiently. Communication with clients and business partners is simplified and you can communicate and collaborate on documents from any device, regardless of location.

With the help of a well-maintained active directory, user accounts can be set up on all end devices in an instant. Employees are immediately connected to internal company systems and associated user rights can be adjusted easily.

The high degree of agility provides a strong competitive edge for you.

Greater security through user roles

In order to guarantee a strong security level even in the age of bring-your-own-device (BYOD), role-based access control (RBAC) should always be used. Users in a network are given different authorisations based on their position in the company.

Each role is associated with a specific set of access rights and can therefore only view selected records and resources. Like this, business-critical data is protected against attacks and audit requirements can be met effectively.

Discover the high security standards and let our team take care of the protection of your infrastructure.

Reduced workload and more time for your system administrators

Of course, managing new users is very time-consuming for your system administrators and can be difficult in some cases. In order to minimise the operative effort, you would rather rely on our full-managed Office 365 and active directory.

Whether as a cloud or hybrid solution, Office 365 fits your business model.

Benefit from the high level of expertise of our team and focus on your core business.
We take care of the rest!

Full-Managed E-Mail Service & MS Exchange

Especially if your company often with external parties and generally has a lot of e-mail traffic, it is essential to protect yourself and your employees. As cybercrime continues to rise, even simple e-mails can pose a high security risk. The greatest danger comes from so-called phishing attacks. An attacker tries to access or destroy personal and company-critical data with the help of fake e-mails and websites. However, this is not the only attack pattern that can harm your company. Due to the high volume of spam, it is becoming increasingly difficult for employees to work effectively. In case a dangerous e-mail is not fended off, the damage is fatal.

In order to protect your company data and the data of your customers, it is therefore advisable to rely on a fully managed e-mail service.
