Cloud solutions without compromise

Without compromising our ability to remain unbiased, we offer cloud solutions that we feel are best in class and represent demonstrable value to our customers.  These services should be considered among the many tools at your disposal in the never ending challenge of defending your business.

Cloud Backup

Protect your most sensitive data

Cloud Backup

Cloud backup solutions are not only ideal for protecting against human error, but when deployed correctly, they are the last line of defense against ransomware.  We will help you evaluate and implement your cloud backup solution.

Infrastructure as a Service

VM Hosting and Virtual Datacenters

Infrastructure as a Service

IaaS should be a consideration for any organization looking to simplify IT operations and increase processing capabilities without having to manage a data center and hire a support staff.  Securing IaaS can be tricky.  We can help.

Cloud Voice

Unified Communications, Contact Center and Voice over IP

Cloud Voice

If your business relies on phones, then you need to treat it as a critical system.  The modern integration between voice and several other cloud services means that extra attention should be paid to security.  We help you identify the pitfalls as well as implement best practice configurations.

Office 365

Microsoft's cloud is easy, but it does not mean its secure

Office 365

Managing Office 365 is chaotic enough from a support perspective.  Most companies barely use 40% of the suite’s true feature sets.  Even fewer actually understand the complex security ecosystem of audit logs, e-Discovery and other capabilities that are inside the platform.  We do – and we are experts in it.

Not all clouds are created equal – here’s why

People often think of “the cloud” as this ubiquitous concept where they can move everything over to and will be able to securely access it from anywhere at any time with no issues.  Salespeople often tout how “cheap” the cloud is compared to building your own infrastructure and support model.  While there may be truth in those statements, the whole statement is definitively not true in all cases.

The cloud is actually a collection of independent, autonomous infrastructures linked together by the Internet and provides everything from computing resources to very specific application or integration capabilities such as CRM, Voice over IP, transaction processing, APIs and the like.  There is no standard definition of a cloud outside of NIST which defines a cloud service as:

  • On-demand self service capabilities (you can directly control what happens in your cloud)
  • Broad network access (connected to the Internet or a Wide Area Network)
  • Resource pooling (multi-tenancy)
  • Rapid elasticity (ability to scale up/down based on demand)
  • Measured service (resource monitoring, control and reporting)

This means that whether a cloud service such as Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is deployed as public, private, community or hybrid, the service itself can have wildly varying degrees of security, performance and functional capabilities.

Often cloud based companies tout their security and cite a SSAE-16 or other standard that is actually not that indicative of the provider’s actual security process maturity.

Parsolvo helps customers sort out fact from fiction using an evidence based trust model to identify potential security vulnerabilities in cloud services and design appropriate risk mitigation techniques to ensure the vulnerabilities do not create a looming liability.
