Why Fultura ActiveOffice

Security

Fultura partner with Check Point Technologies, the world leader in Cyber Security to provide the highest level of enterprise network security. ActiveOffice extends the enterprise class security to both the cloud infrastructure at the heart of ActiveOffice and your local and branch offices, wherever they are.

External access from any device is standard utilising high grade encrypted connectivity along with two factor authentication for ultimate security.

All roaming devices, whether they are laptops or phones/tablets will have next generation threat prevention included and any corporate data will rest encrypted on those devices.

Reliability

ActiveOffice primary site is hosted in the Jersey Telecom datacentre at First Tower Lane. This highly available ISO 27001 accredited datacentre provides full power and communications redundancy with a stated 100% up time.

All customer servers in this environment are replicated in near real time to our standby centre hosted at our Network Operations Centre (NOC) in Pitronnerie Road. This allows almost instant failover to the NOC site, where we also have a 25 seat Disaster recovery suite complete with telephony ready for clients to decamp to in the event of failure or disaster at their office site.

In addition, all servers are backed up to independent storage at agreed intervals (normally daily).

Performance

Fultura aspire to provide maximum performance for client applications. Our hosted environment will always remain configured to allow N+1 hosting servers, ensuring no reduction in performance should a hosting server fail.

Performance monitoring is configured for each individual client, allowing them access to a dashboard showing their environment’s performance in terms of CPU/Memory and disk input/output and (where applicable) application performance metrics defined as part of the service.

Expert Fast Support

Fultura operate a Network Operation Centre from our Pitronnerie site. This is the heart of our support operation and has a video wall of dashboards reflecting our clients’ systems and performance.

The NOC is manned by technical staff and consultants who are able to fix most calls for support at the point of call, no queues and no waiting for call backs.

Dedicated Network Operations Centre

Our Network Operations Centre is the hub of our Helpdesk and Performance Monitoring services. ActiveMonitor utilises standard and bespoke monitoring systems to benchmark and report on virtually any desired performance metric, be it network, server or application related.

The NOC team are there to respond not only to helpdesk calls, but also alerts raised from the monitoring solution. The monitoring tools can also auto respond to certain alerts and fix the issues before they can affect client workloads.

24 x 7 Monitoring

The NOC is currently manned during working hours 08:30 to 17:30. We do have a 24×7 on call capability and, of course, our pro-active monitoring solution (ActiveMonitor) operates 24 x 7 providing advance alerts of many issues allowing remediation before anything becomes service affecting.
