Today’s cloud-based solutions are intuitive, feature-rich, and designed to help businesses of all sizes remain as efficient as possible. In fact, many companies are migrating to the cloud to take the most advantage of dedicated software that can replace more costly alternatives.

With so many platforms and subsequent options available, there’s plenty of value and performance improvements to be had, even if you’re managing an entirely remote workforce. Third Octet’s software as a service (SaaS) solutions are optimized according to your business’ precise and specific needs, ensuring both remote employees and those utilizing onsite facilities can remain productive and collaborative.

Automate and Innovate

Our SaaS offerings are comprised of multiple software solutions rolled into one personalized, cohesive package built around highly stable Citrix and Microsoft Azure platform architectures. Compile and consult critical data points virtually across departments to paint the clearest end-to-end picture of your operations. Harness the power and insights of comprehensive analytics. Automate mundane processes to streamline the procurement process. These are just a few ways Third Octet is ready to help you innovate with our user-friendly and data-driven software solutions, actively maintained and enhanced by our IT experts on a regular basis to ensure you have a smooth and reliable experience.

Readiness Assessment Workshops that Transform Transformations

By taking advantage of Microsoft Azure for Citrix workloads, it’s easier than ever to identify areas of improvement and risk elements through dedicated readiness assessments. That way, when it comes to transforming your digital operations, you’re hitting the ground running with a clear image of where your optimizations will lead. We offer this as a three-day virtual workshop to help you not only get the very most out of our software solutions, but also to help you ease into the digital workspace environment.

Smarter Support, Smarter Deployment

Having skilled professionals with the right credentials at your beck and call is critical to a smoother SaaS experience. As Citrix Platinum and Microsoft Gold Cloud Platform partners, we know what it takes to refine – and redefine – the modern digital workspace. We’re happy to help your team navigate the technical landscape with our wealth of software and cloud integration knowledge, and we’re also capable of quickly identifying and addressing any complications that crop up.

At Third Octet, we believe in empowering users wherever they are. That includes the utilization, support, and maintenance of dedicated software solutions that simply work.

What if I need to maintain compliance for specific elements of my business?

Third Octet’s approach to Cloud as a Service (CaaS) is a highly adaptable one – in other words, we work around your compliance needs rather than through them. Whether for privacy, data security, secret clearances or otherwise, every facet of our cloud offerings can be personalized to suit your precise operating needs. For example, we can ensure only certain departments or employees have access to a file or folder uploaded to cloud storage, all while managing viewing, editing, downloading and sharing permissions. Your requirements act as the foundation on which our CaaS offerings are built out and deployed, meaning every client of ours has a custom-tailored experience.

Will there be compatibility issues with essential software or hardware?

In respect to hardware-associated complications, they are usually minimal to nonexistent. Due to the adaptive, flexible nature of modern cloud technology, your network strength and capabilities will sooner limit the effectiveness of our services – of course, we’ll analyze and inspect your existing system to identify whether this is the case or not. With software, almost always we can perform a seamless, stress-free transition to the cloud, including via virtual desktops to enable the functionality of legacy applications. Once we understand how your current infrastructure is used, we can make more informed decisions on how best to move forward.

Will the service be reliable and reduce downtime?

Absolutely. Since our approach is to build out our CaaS capabilities around your pain points and employee-by-employee needs, we can help you significantly improve infrastructural efficiency and network uptime. This translates to a more resilient, scalable solution designed for your operations specifically. There’s a misconception that cloud is inefficient and hampers productivity, but that’s not the case when working with a managed service provider to actively build-out, deploy, and maintain the system they put in place for you.

How secure is Third Octet CaaS?

Our CaaS offerings are airtight with precisely managed permissions and location-based monitoring. In addition, we implement enterprise-grade firewall and file encryption to protect your team and data. Everything from sharing to editing documents and virtual meetings is handled with non-intrusive yet highly active security monitoring standards in place. We can personalize the security measures put in place to accommodate compliance-related needs as well, so don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
