Application Hosting


Typical cloud computing offerings are aimed at everyday applications like email, calendar and web hosting that can be mass configured for thousands of users. 

BusinessCloud Hosting is fundamentally different!  While we offer all the standard applications, more importantly we can also host your unique, business-critical applications including vertical market and custom developed applications. BusinessCloud was built to support the needs of small and medium business.  Rather than taking a one-size fits all approach, each BusinessCloud client is provided with a virtual data center monitored and maintained 24x7 by certified professionals.  

The BusinessCloud Advantage 

  • Eliminate upfront capital expense
  • Liberate your staff from day-to-day operations
  • Scalable – pay only for active user accounts

  • Safe with daily backup to offsite facility with separate DR images
  • Secure behind an application-specific firewall and  protected by Managed Endpoint Security
  • Access anywhere via the Internet

Compliance-Logos-Stacked_120w Compliant

Many organizations face regulations including SOX, GLBA, PCI, HIPAA, and others in order to ensure data security and privacy.  Secant invested in the critical infrastructure, tools, services and trained personnel required to achieve regulatory compliance.

Our standards, policies, procedures and security controls are meticulously documented and audited to demonstrate and validate compliance.
