Virtual Office

Forward IT can provide a virtual office to firms without a permanent office location, but who still want the functionality and security of a server solution. It's ideal for firms without a central office location or with staff that regularly travel.

How Virtual Office works:

The Microsoft server would be hosted on a redundant VMware infrastructure  in a local A.C.T Transact Data Centre.  Remote users would connect to their virtualized server network via a VPN encrypted tunnel over the Internet. Once a VPN tunnel is created, users would have access to corporate drive shares, Exchange email system and corporate applications. It would be as if the user was physically on the same network in the single office.
