AIM Corporate Solutions (ACSI): The 'Service's First, Product Next' IT Company
Organizations are finally waking up to the threats posed by security loopholes in their IT implementations. And as more and more companies outsource their core operations to offshore centres and demand full mobility of their staff, there is an imperative need for organizations to secure IT systems and tighten their privacy policies. Also, as every business strives to increase availability levels of their IT systems and enhance security, adopting fault tolerant systems can offer the simplest way out.
Security standards and frameworks are increasingly being adopted by businesses as a proof of their IT credentials. However, implementing and managing a fault-tolerant infrastructure while mitigating security risks has always been a challenge. Product compliance in the international market and client’s increasing awareness on information security and system availability issues also casts uncertainties. Hence, many IT companies are turning to professional organizations that can manage and support their IT operations.
