"My first concern was data security. We needed to transfer highly sensitive information between the Melbourne and Sydney offices, and different staff members needed different access rights."

Remote file access must be zero maintenance

Due to the new Melbourne office being staffed entirely by non-IT employees, access to the secured files stored at the head office must be facilitated by an ultra-reliable, set-and-forget system.

Secure access to confidential files is necessary both locally and remotely

The separate file server containing sensitive client information must remain isolated from the internet for increased safety, yet must also be accessible from a console in each office. Physical access to servers must also be monitored.

All operations on high-security server must be recorded

Given the nature of the information on the second server, all access and system operations need to be recorded. This will allow the firm to track all system actions and ensure no security breaches have occurred or been attempted.
