ITonCloud CEO Andrew Tucker said, “For business owners, it’s virtually impossible to have the technical IT knowledge to be 100 per cent confident their business is fully protected. This is the reality when you are relying on an on-premise server IT environment.”
Oapl has a complex yet sophisticated environment where security, up time, and speed are critical ingredients for its day to day operations. Coming from a hybrid environment using Office 365, on-premise, and hosted servers led to a number of Ransomware attacks and speed issues.
Oapl, like many healthcare organisations, decided to move away from on-premise servers to total cloud environments as it’s the most economical and effective way to achieve its business needs.
Oapl Operations Manager Kevin Johnson said, “We lost many days of trading because the business had been exposed to crypto viruses. No business can afford that, particularly when we have clients relying on us for medical services. We needed to find a more secure and reliable solution.”
“With ITonCloud, they monitor for suspicious activity with tools we didn’t have access to before. This mitigates the risk of an attack so that damage to data is prevented.”
“We now have excellent backups, with hourly snapshots, so if any data is lost or compromised it can be quickly restored and we are back to ‘business as usual’. We now have a single secure gateway we login into which gives us access to everything we need to run the business and service our clients. In fact, now we can focus on our core business competencies, not deal with IT issues,” said Mr Johnson.
Oapl has 26 locations across Australia, so running on-premise servers from different locations, with different versions of applications running simultaneously, and paying for multiple licenses was a logistical nightmare.
Mr Tucker said, “The IT environment for these businesses can be complicated. The biggest concern for healthcare businesses is managing and storing sensitive client data, and managing the number of different applications, like case management systems and its various versions.”
“The idea of migrating all of that sensitive information and losing trading days in the migration is huge concern for most. ITonCloud works closely with our clients to meet the specific challenges they face and have developed a unique methodology that allows us to do the implementation and integration of these applications quickly and easily, and with no charge.”
“Our approach to the migration gives our clients absolute confidence and we have a 100 per cent migration success rate,” said Mr Tucker.
Mr Johnson said, “The migration and integration from our previous vendor to ITonCloud has been the best and seamless process I have seen in my 25-year business history. This is testament to their excellent planning, execution and staff who know their job.”

Increasing mandates around the security of personal data have made encryption for every business. Australian businesses are leading the world in the use of encryption to protect backups, payment-related data, and laptops – and yet they still have a long way to go before encryption is both ubiquitous and manageable.
If your last access-control update was even a few years ago, you’re probably more exposed to fraud and exploitation than you’d like to be.
It’s not hard to understand why bot management is critical to maintaining business availability and customer satisfaction – but do you know how to properly deal with bots?
Increasing use of encryption has created new challenges for enterprise security managers. Ever more-sophisticated encryption such as Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS) protects data and may even boost your Google ranking – but it also provides a haven for malicious code that may use encryption to bypass enterprise security controls.
