Dear Valued Customer and Business Partners,

As we move into the 3rd Quarter CY 2019, we are very conscious of how businesses are approaching their digital transformation vision to match their business objectives. And in their quest for moving applications into a multi-cloud scenario, they are paying heed to performance, ROI and compliance.

We at eHDF are committed to providing organizations with solutions that work, and in our quest to always strive for something new, have developed a 360-degree approach to consulting, migrating, deploying and managing workloads, be it on-premise, collocated, locally hosted or hosted on a Public Cloud.

In our mobile and connected ecosystem, data and information protection have become of prime importance. Beyond the economic and financial realms of a business, we see that authenticating people, their identity and access rights is becoming an increasingly pressing need and priority. Customers want to allow for openness and interconnection with their various stakeholders, while maintaining control on privacy and security, a tough balancing act indeed.

Without doubt, the security market is seeing an upward trend and we are witnessing a good change in our customers approach to their security posture. As this trend grows, we as a leading Managed Hosting and Cloud Services Provider, see security as one of our biggest strengths. In the past six months, we have strived very hard to deliver some cutting-edge projects and also introduce innovative solutions to further strengthen our Managed Security Services portfolio. Like always, we have built up our market-leading portfolio through internal innovation and collaboration with leading vendors.

2019 has been an eventful year so far with many developments on the technology innovation front and strategic customer acquisitions. We have a lot planned for the second half of the year as well so stay tuned for the announcements of additional capabilities that eHDF will bring to the market. With our experience, we are in a unique position to help customers in their endeavors to capitalize on the benefits of private clouds as well as public clouds, taking into consideration many variables related to governance, performance and cost optimization.

With your trust and support, eHDF is committed to remain at the forefront of technology and service excellence and to bring about unmatched value to our customers and partners.

Here is a checklist of pointers on how CIOs can build their Cloud strategies.
