“We have adapted our business model to enable us to deliver these modern, cloud-based extensible systems through our partnerships with the best solution providers, software vendors and software developers,” says One Channel CEO Bernard Ford.

There is no doubt that cloud computing has changed the way businesses operate. The only question that possibly remains unanswered is when to move to the cloud.

Although an increasing number of businesses are moving their services to the cloud, many still have reservations about using this technology, and security remains the biggest concern for them.

One Channel was established to help mid-sized and large organisations move to the cloud, providing modern cloud solutions to customers on the African continent. The company has followed the evolution of business software, from core accounting to ERP, and now to extended post-modern ERP and the multi-cloud environment.

“We have adapted our business model to enable us to deliver these modern, cloud-based extensible systems through our partnerships with the best solution providers, software vendors and software developers,” says One Channel CEO Bernard Ford.

Acumatica offers the world’s leading cloud-based ERP and mobile workforce solutions for medium-sized to large organisations in many sectors and industry types.

One Channel supports Microsoft Azure as well as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and private cloud hosting. These public cloud platforms provide a growing collection of integrated cloud services that developers and IT professionals use to build, deploy and manage applications through a global network of data centres.

“With Azure, clients get the freedom to build and deploy wherever they want, using the tools, applications and frameworks of their choice,” he adds.

One of the important considerations is security, and businesses must realise that even in the cloud, data security remains your responsibility. Ransomware is the latest malicious threat that infects computers and blocks access to data until a ransom is paid. Companies end up paying massive ransoms to recover their valuable data.

One Channel has partnered with global giants Sophos and Acronis, which set the standard for hybrid cloud data protection through backup, disaster recovery, and secure file sync and share solutions.

Powered by the Acronis AnyData Engine and set apart by its image technology, Acronis delivers easy, complete and affordable data protection of all files, applications and operating systems across any environment – virtual, physical, cloud and mobile.

Acronis Active Protection is an advanced ransomware protection technology; it actively protects all of the data on a computer. It constantly observes patterns in how data files are being changed on a computer. One set of behaviours may be typical and expected, while another set of behaviours may signal a suspect process taking hostile action against files.

To maximise protection against ransomware, One Channel offers complete ransomware protection with Sophos Server Protection. The proven CryptoGuard capabilities in Sophos Intercept X block ransomware – including all Wanna variants – protecting endpoints from ransomware attacks as soon as they start trying to encrypt your files, returning data to its original state.

“We’re taking a new approach to protection. Sophos Endpoint blocks malware and infections by identifying and preventing the handful of techniques and behaviours used in almost every exploit,” he concludes.
