LET'S START WITH THE NAME. WHY IS IT CALLED THE “CLOUD”?
Back when the internet itself was an infant concept, the term “cloud” was used by all those in the world of tech as industry slang to describe the intricate connections between telephone networks.
These connections would help the infant internet to become the internet as we know it today – allowing for computer users to make connections with other users across different geographical locations. Today, a multitude of organizations refer to the “cloud” – but it does not exist as a single entity, and it does not function in just one place. So, you might be wondering: what exactly is the cloud?
ENTER THE CLOUD
More than just a concept or a metaphor, the cloud became a place of its own – a virtual space. The Cloud as we know it today is a virtual environment of servers that are accessed over the Internet, with software and databases running on those servers. You will find cloud servers located in data centers all around the world.
WHY DO INDIVIDUALS AND BUSINESSES USE THE CLOUD?
With cloud computing, both users and companies are relieved of having to manage physical servers themselves or run software applications on their own machines – which would be costly and entail much time and energy to train staff. Instead, they can rely on a third part cloud provider to handle their needs. That means no major investments to buy equipment, train staff, or provide ongoing maintenance. Are you up to speed? Great. Now, here’s how Alvacomm can provide a premium cloud-based service for your business or organization.
1. EMAIL HOSTING
E-mail is here to stay With all the technological advancements of the modern age, one thing that has remained since the day it was introduced, is: emails.
Emails are not going away any time soon, in fact – the technology now is all about enhancing email and its features.
If you’re a business or organization, chances are, emails are a huge facet of your daily operational processes.
Traditionally, businesses would employ a self-hosted email via their own servers. But here’s where it gets tricky. While you can indeed host your own email, it comes with drawbacks. First of all, you have to invest substantially in enough servers and systems, as well as investing in admins to maintain them. Plus, you have to filter out which emails are spam, harmful, phishing emails, or genuine – representing an additional cost.
So why not go ahead with a third part email host?
Packed with more productive features than any self-hosted email system, Alvacomm alleviates the substantial cost associated with your emails. And what’s more? At Alvacomm, the equation is simple. When you partner with us for your email hosting, attention to detail, exceptional design, and competitive pricing comes as standard. The heart of everything we stand for can be encapsulated in one word: success – and this trickles down from the very top into every partnership we undertake.
2. EMAIL SECURITY
The next step to email hosting is email security.
As a business, you want to mitigate any risks or threats, whether they come from phishing, ransomware or malware.
And with cybercrime progressing at a worrying pace, new global trends are emerging every day that coincide with the evolution of new technologies.
Cybercriminals have become more agile in their methods – exploiting potential vulnerabilities with sophistication and cooperating with each other in unprecedented and unforeseen ways. Some of their methods involve software designed to secretly run on an unsuspecting victim’s device, hacking and stealing your sensitive data without a trail. Alvacomm’s Cloud email security solution presents the most cost-effective method to ensure that you don’t have to deal with spam, viruses or phishing emails.
Not all cloud email security solutions are created the same. We make sure that all spam gets immediately filtered, because it takes just one email to breach your sensitive data.
Our cloud-based email security solutions are instantly implemented, easy to administer and relatively inexpensive to operate.
As a superior standard email security solution for enterprises, blocking over 99.9% of spam email, malware, ransomware preventing phishing emails from reaching employees’ inboxes – you can rest assured that Alvacomm will keep your business operations safe and sound.

3. WEB SECURITY
Because right now, your data is vulnerable to cyber attackers.
Protection from cyber-attacks starts with the awareness and recognition that at some point you will be attacked.
It’s just a matter of time.
In fact, cybercrime as a whole has increased by 600% since the beginning of the global pandemic.
But the good news is that with Alvacomm’s cloud-based web security, you’ll be armed with all the necessary tools to prevent attacks before they occur.
With the disturbances of COVID-19, cyber attackers are looking to target weak points wherever there is an opportunity to exploit them. It only takes one click to compromise an entire network. Fortunately, it also takes just one click to protect your sensitive data with Alvacomm. For businesses, cyber-threat management is more than just a strategic imperative – it’s a fundamental part of staying safe and secure.

4. APPLICATION HOSTING
The backbone of your business

6. CLOUD BACKUPS
What are clouds made of? Servers, mostly.
With business operations running digitally, backups are a non-negotiable aspect of business.
Running regular backups is necessary for endpoint device users, especially for remote work – and losing even a small fraction of your data can have disastrous consequences.
Traditional solutions to protect your files and data is by copying everything to a USB flash drive, SSD card or an external hard drive. Not only does it take time and effort, but it also cannot protect you against unfortunate circumstances like a fire, theft or hardware failure. But that’s not all. Simply backing up your data is just the start.
Alvacomm makes it easy to recover any set of affected files. Our support spans across physical and virtual repositories, so you can recover data from anywhere or any device. That means if your primary storage is lost, corrupted or no longer available – you won’t have to worry. You can readily access your data stored in our backup and even develop a virtual machine within minutes that contains a complete set of your data. Our backups aren’t just a necessary business investment, they’re our promise to you that we will protect your business assets and sensitive data no matter the circumstances.
