Andrew Low joins virtualDCS in the Cloud

The cloud experts have started the New Year with a bang, welcoming Andrew to the ever-expanding team, in his new position as Business Development Manager.

Andrew has joined virtualDCS as a result of massive company growth throughout 2018, with the team’s innovative Veeam Cloud Connect solutions at the forefront of this development, after the company became the first Veeam service provider globally to offer Virtual Apple Mac Replication.

“I am thrilled to be joining the virtualDCS team, and I’m looking forward to working with one of the oldest dedicated cloud computing companies in the marketplace.

I’ve seen first-hand how the team offers quality cloud solutions, with excellent customer service and I’m looking forward to helping more organisations experience the benefits of both the cloud and working with virtualDCS”, commented Andrew.

With over 25 years of experience within the IT sector, Andrew has worked in business development roles in a variety of service-based organisations, previously working with the virtualDCS directors at ICM Computer Group plc.

Having just exited his most recent role at the helm of a tech start-up, in which he was one of the early shareholders, it was a ‘no brainer’ to welcome Andrew into the virtualDCS family.

Peter Bowers, Sales Director for virtualDCS said: “We’re really excited to welcome Andrew to the team as a result of another fantastic year.

Not only will he be assisting with the business’s growth strategy, but he will also be ensuring that our company values and customer service remain high for all of our customers as we continue to expand our reach and services in 2019 and beyond.”

Outstanding company growth unites Colin Meakin and old friends at virtualDCS

The Cloud Computing experts are celebrating the end of another exceptional financial year and are looking towards the future, as they welcome Colin Meakin as a non-executive director.

Colin’s new position has been driven by the company’s rapid growth delivering solutions from its own cloud platform, including IaaS, SaaS, and Veeam Cloud Backup & Replication services.

The virtualDCS company directors have all worked with Colin in one of his previous positions over 10 years ago, and the formidable team is thrilled to be working together again.

Colin has a prestigious background in the IT industry with a proven record of driving business success, having held boardroom positions at several key organisations, that went on to be industry success stories.

One of which includes the ICM Computer Group plc, where he helped grow the business from start-up to £80m turnover. Colin will be injecting both this passion and experience into his new role at virtualDCS, helping to propel the business onto the next chapter of success.

Richard May, Managing Director at virtualDCS said: “virtualDCS has grown dramatically each financial year to date and appointing Colin as a non-executive director is the first step on the next stage of our growth plan.

From working with him personally, we know that Colin has a wealth of industry knowledge that will be nothing but beneficial to virtualDCS.”

Collin commented on his new appointment: “It’s great for us to be working together again, especially in such an innovative, forward-thinking company like virtualDCS.

I’m looking forward to helping the business continue to grow and build upon the last 10 years of success.”

September of this year marks 10 years since virtualDCS was founded and the team is now looking forward to the next 10. Growing every day, virtualDCS is constantly expanding its excellent delivery team and is now focussed on expanding its thriving sales team.

virtualDCS BSI certification

We’ve passed again! virtualDCS recertifies its ISO 27001 status

The renewed ISO 27001 accolade showcases the team’s continuous commitment to information security and data protection.

Looking at the entire scope of the business, from how the company purchases teabags to its comprehensive staff vetting procedure, the BSI assessed and commended virtualDCS on its processes and unique structure.

virtualDCS BSI certification

ISO 27001 is the international standard for best practice for information security management systems, covering technical and business controls that ensure a company is managing its data in the most secure way possible.

Richard May, Managing Director of virtualDCS said:

“There’s often some confusion around the standards and what they cover, but in essence, the re-certification shows that we’re managing customer data in the most secure way possible. This means that anyone that works with us can continue to be confident that we’re handling their information with the utmost sensitivity.

Many businesses that have an ISO 27001 certification tend to heavily limit the scope of the audit, but we wanted to encapsulate the entire business and its practices. If we’re going to be certified, then we’re going to do it right.”

Re-certification was truly a team effort as each employee within the company is responsible for a set of unique standard operating procedures. These procedures are monitored and updated by the appointed team member. virtualDCS chose to deploy this unique approach so that information security would be at the forefront of everyone’s mind and at the heart of the business.
