Choose your Cloud provider carefully.

Journey to the Cloud

Reminiscent of the dot com days, companies are popping up everywhere claiming to be cloud computing experts. In this environment, it is vital to sort out the good, reliable providers from those that are jumping into the storm and late to the game.

Frequently Asked Questions

As with any new IT development or technology, there are questions:

1. Is my data safe in the cloud?

The only real security is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability. M2 and HP Enterprise Security Products.

Based on market leading products from ArcSight, Fortify, and TippingPoint, the HP Security Intelligence and Risk Management (SIRM) Platform uniquely delivers the advanced correlation, application protection, and network defense technology to protect today's applications and IT infrastructures from sophisticated cyber threats.

We are compelled to emphasize our fundamental premise that data has little value without a human connection. OEM equipment is just hardware without a human connection. Big Data is just a mass of 0s and 1s without a human connection. M2's technology specialists bring a human perspective and help make technology perform.
