Eze Castle Integration: Best Cloud Services – Cloud technology and security risks continue to evolve and Eze Castle Integration is working incessantly to develop solutions to empower and protect their investment management clients in the face of this evolution.
Eze Castle Integration is a managed service provider focused on the hedge fund and alternative investment industry. The firm is global in nature and support its 650 clients across the US, HK, Singapore and London.
Mary Beth Hamilton, Vice President of Global Marketing, explains how the firm has seen the market evolve from a private cloud approach to greater interest being generated around public cloud solutions. She says: “Eze Castle’s industry experience and depth of our cloud knowledge and expertise is one of our competitive advantages. We’re able to provide flexibility in the solutions we offer – whether a client selects to embark on a public or private cloud journey.”.
Security is high on the cloud migration agenda and Hamilton comments: “The public cloud is not secure by default. As firms move to the public environment, their approach to security and data management must evolve to ensure critical information is available, controlled and protected. Firms need support and expertise to help them manage the information, control access to it and ensure the proper configurations and security layers are in place.”
Eze Castle Integration helps clients take a security-first approach to their operations. “We’re continuing to introduce new security offerings that clients can layer on top of their environments,” says Hamilton. “Most recently, we rolled out the Eze Managed SIEM. This is an advanced security information and event management security tool which acts as the central repository and monitoring system. It manages all the different alerts for IT events which may be impacting an organisation, giving the clients a holistic view on how they can protect against these risks. Should an anomaly occur, Eze Castle’s security teams takes action.”
Hamilton stresses the services like these take security to a new level. She notes: “Benefits include ensuring clients are utilising the latest security tools coupled with the latest cloud technology. It also gives them security protection to ensure they are mitigating the current risk landscape and threats and keeping the organisation protected.”
Eze Castle aims to support clients across their entire cloud journey. The firm continues to provide new offerings to the market and has evolved private and public cloud solutions as well as hybrid offerings. The company is a Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider, able to give clients direct connectivity to Microsoft cloud services as well as premium access to Microsoft support.
Beyond providing cloud and security solutions to the industry, Eze Castle Integration believes it is its commitment to high-touch, responsive support that differentiates the company in the market.
