Technology is the last thing you want to think about as a startup or small fund, we get it. We make it easy with Agio SkySuite, a fully hosted infrastructure in Microsoft Azure’s Public Cloud. It’s the ultimate IT support package to make you more productive, reduce your cybersecurity risk and lowers costs.
Your to-do list when setting up a hedge fund or private equity firm is no small undertaking and for most of our clients, technology is their least favorite to tackle. You just need someone to set up your infrastructure, manage it and make it easy. Our engineers get that, and we’re here to get you up and running quickly and painlessly. As you grow your hedge fund, SkySuite grows with you, providing Hosted Email via Microsoft Office 365, File Share, Managed Backup, Remote Access and Disaster Recovery, 24×7 Help Desk, as well cybersecurity features like Mobile Device Management, Data Loss Prevention, and many more.
Whether it’s our remote help-desk or someone onsite to provide more hands-on assistance, we offer 24x7x365 unlimited access to our engineers to answer questions and solve your problems. What's more, our engineers specialize in alternative asset client environments so we already have a head start on how your environment needs to operate. Bottom line, we miss sleep so you don’t have to.
CLOUD HOSTED FILE SHARE
You can’t be in multiple places at once, but your files can. SkySuite uses Office 365 OneDrive’s secure file sharing system to enable access to your documents anywhere, anytime. Now asset managers, brokers and any other employees can collaborate on documents from any location without worrying about things like file size. Your employees just became that much more productive for you and your investors.
Mobile Device Management
Mobility is a necessity, but also a huge risk for data security. You can easily control which employees have access to what data on their smartphones and laptops using our mobile device management feature. As new employees join your hedge fund, and as old ones leave, adding and deleting access to data is as easy as the click of a mouse. This puts you light years ahead of the next competing fund.
Secure Remote Access
Basing SkySuite in Microsoft Azure has many benefits, including the mobility and flexibility that’s inherent to cloud computing. Your firm can access cloud-based data and apps from anywhere, securely, and Agio can use traditional VPN or desktop terminal remote access solutions for those not totally in the cloud. You can feel good about making your employees' lives easier when it come to work without the added cybersecurity risk.
Goodbye tape backup systems — hello, state-of-the-art automated backup. Our service lives in the Azure cloud and has all the bells and whistles you could want — advanced encryption, flexible recovery options and off-site redundancy. This unparalleled data protection means you’ll never lose any of the data that makes your hedge fund so successful.
Hosted Email (Office 365)
SkySuite’s messaging package through Microsoft Office 365 has it all: 99.99% uptime guarantee, data loss prevention (DLP), encryption, anti-phishing and anti-malware security checks, mobile support, and archiving for email, instant messaging, Bloomberg, SMS and social media. Staying connected (and compliant) has never been easier.
Web Content Filtering
Cisco Umbrella powers Agio’s web content filtering so you can control what your employees access on company devices. This is big. Without the worry of picking up malware from dangerous websites, your employees can surf the web safely and productively, and you have yet another reason to attract investors now concerned with what you're doing for cybersecurity and an ongoing basis.
We may be your IT provider, but with cybersecurity under our roof as well, we always think cybersecurity-first when it comes to configuring and managing your infrastructure. Every product we choose has native security features such as multi-factor authentication. Specifically, we use Microsoft Azure’s native MFA to secure your data easily from day one. Any investor who learns you already use MFA will be impressed.
Infinite Scalability on Microsoft Azure
We know your goal is to grow fast; we have that in common with most of our clients, and we’ve structured SkySuite to accommodate that growth. No other solution out there, specifically for smaller funds, offers a fully hosted cloud solution. Competitors just aren’t there yet, but we are, and Prime Brokers are lining up to learn more. Why are we first to market? Because partnering with Microsoft Azure, the best public cloud platform on the market, offers our clients unlimited accessibility, mobility and scalability so you’re always covered, no matter where your hedge fund is or how big it grows. If you’re ahead of the curve in the way you set up your fund, doesn’t the same go for you how you invest? We think so.
