processes and operations — and they are driving digital transformation in the workplace. The digital

workplace offers innovative technology that employees love, empowering them to communicate,
collaborate, and produce with agility. EMCERA can help you map your path to a digital future.

Cloud Backup

Azure Backup replaces existing on-premises or off-site backup solutions with a cloud-based solution that
is reliable, secure, and cost-competitive. All Azure Backup components (no matter whether you’re
protecting data on-premises or in the Cloud) can be used to back up data to a Recovery Services vault
in Azure. Keep your data in Azure and on-premises safe. Backup supports all machines, including
VMware and Hyper-V virtual machines running on Linux and Windows, as well as physical Windows
Azure Backup is a pay-as-you-go service, giving customers the flexibility to choose the data that they
want to protect for as long as they need to protect it. Azure Backup is designed to be cost-effective for
both short-term and long-term data retention scenarios. Virtual machines and individual files or folders
can be restored –— in Azure or on-premises —– as needed, for free.
RANSOMWARE PROTECTION In the age of ransomware, customers can never be too careful with their
data. Azure Backup gives customers piece peace of mind that their backups are secured through limited-
access controls and, automated notifications if suspicious activity is detected in a Recovery Services
vault., and unauthorized deletions are kept for days, providing ample time to secure the environment
and start the recovery process.

Hybrid Device Management

With the increasing demand to support bring-your-own-device (BYOD) scenarios, organizations are
faced with the challenge of finding the right balance between allowing their employees to choose
which devices they use, while making sure those devices have access to the right set of applications and
meet corporate data protection and compliance requirements.

Migrations can get complex and cause unnecessary outages if not planned accordingly. EMCERA will
help you migrate and modernize your system with minimal disruption to your business. Taking a
granular approach to migrations is an important benefit. To reduce risks, we break down the migration
and modernization stages in three phases: Assess, Migrate, and Optimize.

more effectively, create your private cloud, and improve business continuity.
Go green with virtualization and server consolidation. EMCERA helps organizations reduce energy costs

Automation and DevOps

DevOps is the combination of people, process, and tools to automate the process of software delivery
and infrastructure changes. The end goal is to build, test, and release software more rapidly,
automatically, and more reliably.
EMCERA helps organizations build an integrated end-to-end solution for teams of any size to design,
build, and manage enterprise solutions and cross-platform mobile business applications.
We help organizations build and deploy Azure DevOps Services and Azure DevOps Server (formerly
Visual Studio Team Services and Team Foundation Server).


“Azure DevOps Services is the cloud offering that provides a scalable, reliable, and globally available
hosted service. It’s backed by a 99.9% SLA, monitored by our 24/7 operations team, and available in
local data centres around the world.
Azure DevOps Server is the on-premises offering that’s built on an SQL Server back end. Companies
usually choose on-premises when they need their data to stay within their network or when they want
access to SQL Server reporting services that integrate with Azure DevOps data and tools.”

Identity and Access Management

Identity and Access Management

Digital transformation has diminished the effectiveness of the traditional perimeter-based security boundaries. The new perimeter extends to every access point that hosts, stores or accesses corporate resources and services. Modern enterprises need to define a new security model that more effectively adapts to the complexity of the modern environment, embraces mobile workforces, and protects users, devices, applications, and data. Azure Active Directory provides a comprehensive, Enterprise-grade identity and access management solution. It works with an on-premises Active Directory to offer an integrated solution enabling a common identity to be used to access both on- premises and cloud-based services, including third-party services. EMCERA can help you optimize your Active Directory, enable single sign- on for SaaS- based applications, and multi-factor authentication adding a valuable second layer of security to signing in and completing any transactions.

Threat Protection and Remediation ​

Cyber attacks continue to escalate, and organizations face more sophisticated attacks by the day. The
traditional signature-based detection is not good enough to protect against advanced and persistent
threats. To prevent intrusions to on your data, applications, and infrastructure, you need a
comprehensive solution that identifies threats and takes automated measures to stop them. EMCERA
helps organizations operate securely and cost effectively in the Cloud and on-premises.
