What makes our Managed Cloud Financial Services so great
Addressing IT Challenges Within the Financial Industry
At Webair, we understand the market trends and emerging IT technologies that are driving change within the finance sector. Due to the sensitive nature of managing financial transactions and data, financial institutions may struggle to address the following challenges:
The average cost of a data breach in the financial industry was $5.85 million in 2020, and it took an average of 233 days to identify and contain a breach, according to the 2020 IBM Security Cost of a Data Breach Report. Broken down by cause, 52 percent of data breaches were because of malicious attacks, 23% were due to human error, and 25% were caused by a system glitch.
As with many organizations handling sensitive data in other sectors, financial institutions must determine the best way to securely store and backup financial data. Banks and other organizations must follow strict guidelines when it comes to where data is allowed to be stored and how that data can be managed. As organizations place more data and applications in the cloud, they will likely have additional regulations they must follow to remain compliant. Keeping the unique requirements of financial institutions in mind, Webair’s solutions are PCI-DSS, SSAE-18 SOC 2 Type II, and FISMA compliant.
Reliable Data Storage and Recovery
Banks, credit unions, accounting firms, and other financial institutions rely heavily on the ability to access data and records used on a daily basis. In the event of a breach or disaster, these organizations require reliable backup and disaster recovery solutions to minimize expenses and prevent interruptions that reduce productivity and competitiveness.

Can I provide a main image to use for all the desktops?
Absolutely, you can provide us with a template, also known as a Golden Image, and we can have all the desktops use the master image. We can also expose that image to you at any time if you need to add additional applications or configurations. Then, we can have all desktops re-deployed using the new image once a user logs out.
What exactly is VDI?
VDI, or Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, allows you to maintain your Desktop in the cloud. For years, we’ve all been stuck to our local computer at the office, and if we saved something on the desktop and forgot to save it to a cloud drive such as Google, Dropbox, or similar, we would have to physically go to our office computer just to get that file. VDI solutions prevent that from ever happening again, with the ability to access your Desktop from any device such as a computer, iPad, Android, or just about any other smart device, you can access your files anywhere, at any time, with just your username and password.
Why should someone use VDI?
VDI provides the most efficient work space imaginable. It gives users the ability to access their systems from just about anywhere while providing your IT team with the capability to manage all users computers from one centralized location, remotely. Yes, you heard correctly. The IT team doesn’t actually need to go to your employees computer just to fix an issue or update an application; it can all be done from a centralized management tool. VDI solutions can even cut your operating costs up to 50%.
Does VDI make sense for my company?
Not one size fits all, that’s for sure. However, VDI makes sense for any business that does a majority of their business via a computer. Even if you don’t have remote workers or allow your team to work remote, VDI solutions improve security and redundancy throughout your organization. No need to worry about computers failing for each employee, or having to go to each employee’s computer individually to fix anissue or install an application they need. VDI solutions allow your IT team to deploy and fix computer issues without physically being on-site.
How much of a burden is the setup on my team?
It’s pretty simple, Webair takes care of the difficult part. Our team of engineers will help configure and deploy the entire solution. We set up the entire infrastructure in our cloud, and the only thing your team may need to help us with is answer some minor questions we have and configure the initial template. We then provide a step-by-step process for your team to share with your entire organization so everyone can easily access their desktop.
Do you backup my data?
Our initial quotes and options will always include backups, however you have the option to remove backups if you choose to not have them. Retention policies can be modified to your liking to ensure if any data is deleted, it can be restored within a certain amount of time.
