Services that make a difference to your business

Popular communications and messaging applications are widely used by individuals and companies alike however the reality is they were not designed for enterprise use and are not secure. From the moment you sign up you give away a lot of valuable data and then you start using the apps. Security and confidentiality is key for discerning customers and that’s why Metro Communications offers our customers a secure communications solution based on government grade security, approved by the NCSC and NATO yet available for commercial use.

Secure Communications

Mobile phones are at the heart of our personal and business lives, but they aren’t as secure or as private as we like to think. Intercepting calls on mobile phones is one of the fastest-growing cyber security threats. Most worryingly, it can put your entire call and any data you’ve shared into somebody else’s hands.

We’ve partnered with specialists Armour Communications to keep your communications secure. Armour Mobile is a secure instant communications app that protects all your phone calls, video calls, text messages and file-sharing. That means your communications are kept private, no matter what country you’re in or what network you’re using. It’s the perfect solution for people and businesses who need the highest possible levels of privacy at an affordable price.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The general data protection regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25 May 2018. As one of the strictest laws on data privacy in the world, it will make a huge difference to how you collect and manage personal data from people living in the European Union, even if you’re not based in Europe.

Get GDPR wrong and your business will face fines of up to €20 million euros or 4% of its annual global revenue, whichever is the highest.

“As a clear message of compliance ‘or else,’ the guidelines for penalties have been set high enough that just planning on paying the fine is a poor strategy.”
Gartner [Commvault], A Platform for GDPR Compliance

We have partnered with Commvault, world leaders in data management, to give you a tried and tested solution for managing data in line with GDPR. This includes the audit that proves your business complies with the regulation.

Contact us to talk about how Commvault can help you comply quickly, with the lowest possible risk to your business.
