KLIMA+ opted decisively for the cloud back in 2004. “The importance of IT is growing constantly,” says Peter De Vos. “But at the same time, the complexity is increasing, too, along with the need for expertise.” IT is essential, but at KLIMA+ it is not the core task. This is one of the reasons why the company has outsourced its entire IT environment. “We expect an IT partner to offer a proactive approach, to take the initiative and put forward IT solutions that enable us to work more smoothly and efficiently.”
However, at KLIMA+ they were not really satisfied. In addition, their partner at the time had to deal with a security incident, so KLIMA+ decided to look elsewhere. Peter De Vos: “The problem was eventually resolved, but we’d lost confidence. So we opted for Proximus and their partner IT-Care from Poperinge, because thanks to appropriate solutions they make sure that we are always up to date in matters of security. That’s important given the approach of GDPR.”
The switch to ‘SME in the Cloud’ is proof of this. It offers a high-performance yet secure environment. WatchGuard provides a wide range of security services, such as firewall and antispam. Microsoft Advanced Threat Protection makes sure that cybercriminals can’t penetrate the company network. “This security is essential for our business,” says Peter De Vos. “This way our system is always up to date, while all the applications and company data are stored securely in the cloud.”
