Rockwood explains her initial decision to go with Intermedia’s integrated cloud services back in 2007, and what it’s been like today: “I wanted to be in a hosted cloud environment, where everything was delivered by one provider. Working with Intermedia is just easy, and they are always on the leading edge of what we’ve needed. We have happily chosen Intermedia every day for the past 10 years and expect to for the foreseeable future. It’s been wonderful.”
She realized that she needed a cloud platform that would be easy for her to manage by herself. “I was looking for ease of use, something simple to set up, and a provider with a deep understanding of what we needed. I didn’t want to have any equipment that I had to set up. Intermedia had the email, the backup, the security – it was a perfect fit.”
With Intermedia’s Exchange Email and archiving, Rockwood has a cost-effective alternative to an on-premises server. “Having the ability to quickly and easily locate emails or files if they are lost or if we are ever audited gives me such peace of mind,” she said.
Although Intermedia SecuriSync® backup and file sharing offering certainly makes Rockwood’s particular job easier, it also greatly benefits HRA’s other employees. “We use SecuriSync for the larger files such as building drawings within our development group,” said Rockwood. “SecuriSync gives us better control over our files than Dropbox®. Further, from an administrative perspective, I can manage all my users from one place. I can manage people’s access with one click, and it’s easy to give minimized access to vendors or VARs than that of our in-house users. We have people all over the US, along with many working from their homes. SecuriSync keeps everything secure, while automatically syncing any work being done across all devices once employees reconnect to the network.”
