Online Backup
Allows data to be backed securely to a secure server in the cloud. This eliminates the need for complex local backup infrastructure and daily tape or disk swap procedures. All data is automatically offsite reducing the requirement for complex offsite rotation systems. Data can be restored to any device anywhere subject to the availability of Internet connection.

Anti-Spam Filtering
Existing email can be filtered eliminating ever increasing volume of unwanted email messages and reduces significant risks associated with phising emails and virus attachments.

Mail Archiving
Business are required to comply with a range of regulatory requirements which includes the storage of business emails for a number of years. Mail Archiving allow the storage of existing emails to be stored for as long as 10 years. This also protects employers from malicious employees who sometimes delete company emails upon exit from the business.

Hosted Messaging
Many small businesses find it difficult to justify the cost of implementing a fully fledged mail system that can support mobile email, calendaring and task management features. While there are many offerings on the market including Microsoft's Office 365 service, DP offers a superior hosted mail service with fully managed real time support. We host and manage our infrastructure allowing us to deliver a superior level of service.

DP can consult, design, build and host servers across Windows and Linux platforms from various data centres locally and internationally. These servers are rented on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis depending on requirements.

This technology can be used to monitor Server, Workstations, Notebooks, Infrastructure, Mobile Devices and other IT assets.
