Imagine you are at the airport, your bags are checked, and you hear the announcement to board the plane over the loudspeakers. You reach down to grab your briefcase and it’s not there. You jump up, look around frantically, – it’s nowhere in sight. The reality and magnitude of the situation starts to sink in. All your work papers you downloaded at the office were on your laptop and there were documents saved on your laptop in various stages of completion. Then it really hits you – there was donor information on your laptop! Sadly, more than 12,000 laptops are lost or stolen each week in airports in the U.S. How can you protect yourself and your organization?

Desktop as a Service (DaaS), from Anderson ZurMuehlen changes this situation from an emergency to a mere inconvenience. When you subscribe to our all-inclusive DaaS solution, all you need to do is access any device that is connected to the internet. All of your applications and documents are safely available and your donor’s sensitive data is still protected. In our DaaS environment, all of the workstations, servers, applications, and storage that you need reside in our secure data centers, not on desktops, laptops, and mobile devices. DaaS is supported by our team of experienced engineers allowing you and your staff to focus on what they do best with top notch support and training at their fingertips. 

DaaS provides portability, scalability, and security regarding your IT needs for a monthly per user charge so that you can focus on the mission of your organization.

If your organization has a fully functioning and robust IT department and you prefer to keep your solutions “in-house”, Anderson ZurMuehlen has a full service Cyber Security division that can align your organization with Cyber Security best practices. We perform penetration testing, vulnerability scanning, network architecture review, disaster recover/business continuity planning, IT policy and procedure review or development, IT security employee training programs, and remediation to align your organization’s security level with the appropriate standards.
