You understand that technology is critical to your company’s success, but does your technology get the attention it deserves? If your in-house IT staff is overburdened with support work, they may find it difficult to keep up. This, in turn, puts the average employee in an unenviable position of having to troubleshoot the various common issues that plague the use of their technology.
Modern Services for Modern Business Practices
Business isn’t getting any easier, and with new technology being integrated to core computing systems, your infrastructure is growing more complex by the minute. By virtualizing your IT infrastructure, you can simplify the way your technology operates without sacrificing the processing power and performance that you require.
Microsoft Hyper-V - Virtualization Software for Windows Server
Take full advantage of virtual machines.
Virtualization is an important part of doing business with modern technology. Using virtual machines that have been abstracted from their physical counterparts can provide benefits such as decreased capital and operational costs, and improved workplace efficiency. By effectively leveraging virtualization technologies to your advantage, your organization can stay one step ahead of the competition and ensure smooth operations.
Desktop Monitoring and Management Solutions
Manage desktop endpoints with ease.
All of your employees have workstations that they use to carry out their daily tasks. As a result, these endpoints come with some responsibility. Your organization needs to keep its workstations in proper working order to maximize the returns you see on what can be substantial hardware investments. Furthermore, you need people on staff that are trained to handle the myriad of troublesome issues with your technology. The small business often doesn’t have this luxury as cost can sometimes make it hard for these workstations to get the dedicated and timely management they need.
Thorough Infrastructure Services
Building an IT Infrastructure from the Ground Up
Organizational difficulties that businesses have with their IT infrastructure often leave them with difficulties and deficits that hinder overall operational effectiveness. For this reason companies need to have a strategy in place when setting up their business’ computing infrastructure. When searching for the right company to help you set up and manage your IT infrastructure, you have to take into account the company’s competence in keeping your office organized.

Acanthus Security's Staffing Services
Helping organizations find the right pieces for their needs.
As a solutions provider, we pride ourselves on helping organizations mitigate their operational problems. One of the major problems most organizations have is finding the talent they need to make their endeavor a success.

vCIO - Powerful Technology Strategies
Let Acanthus Security lead your technology initiatives with our vCIO services.
Acanthus Security's vCIO services present an angle that many smaller organizations lack, a dedicated technology officer. With technology being as large of an expense as it is, it is important that an organization’s technology budget is utilized effectively. For enterprise businesses, the role of the CIO is an executive-level position that carries with it a great deal of influence how these massive organizations spend their technology capital.
Business Computing Assessment
