Our approach and moral compass
At Shaping Cloud, we favour our approach of establishing true (life-long) partnerships.
To build something great, that also provides a secure environment to grow, a solid foundation needs to be constructed. This starts with effective and clear communication and understanding.
To establish our partnership(s), we start by conversing with all relevant stakeholders and conducting an initial discovery phase. This is to ensure we have a clear blueprint of an organisation’s entire infrastructure and architecture. From there, we will assess IT environments, policies, and procedures, provide solutions that are effective, and compliant, meet organisational needs, and goals, and eliminate risks.
Our security services
We provide effective third-line support, that proactively detects, prevents, and eliminates potential cybersecurity threats, at an affordable (and fixed) monthly fee.
An innovative step back in the right direction
Different to traditional managed service suppliers, Shaping Cloud takes the sole route of the third-line support instead of end-to-end support. This approach enables us to effectively collaborate with internal IT teams (rather than replace them) and focus on what the customer needs.
Shaping Cloud’s Managed Security offering is designed to enable customers to focus on what they do best, such as core business and high-value work; whilst we focus on ensuring your organisation’s infrastructure is compliant and secure, providing our expertise and solutions to pain points.
Our approach focuses on becoming an extension of your IT teams, exchanging and transferring knowledge and expertise, further developing our customer’s in-house teams, and adding value to our services and customers’ experience.
