The Perrit Online workspace: how does it work?


You can access your working space everywhere in the world where you have access to the internet. It is possible with the Online Workspace from Perrit.

Once logged in you have access to all your programs, files, mail, and etcetera, like you are sitting on your own working place.


The Perrit Online workspace: how save is it?


For many people “hosted” and “cloud” is an intangible thing. And because of that aspect, doubts arise to switch to such services. The hardware and the data aren’t stored on premises at the own company anymore and with that also the control about the data seems to have left the company gates.

These concerns are understandable but with today’s technology not necessary anymore.  Perrit offers fully certified datacenters and an active security policy. With this the security is being tested and improved structurally.


How are applications being connected to the Online Workspace?


As a standard the online workspace already contains a large variety of standard applications See the overview on the Perrit website.


But, here it does not end! Do you have a company specific application or bookkeeping application which you want to be part of the online workspace then this is also possible. Together with you we will view which application it concerns and a planning will be agreed on for it. The software will be installed by us and connected to the Online Workspace. After this we will take care of the migration of the data. From that moment on you have access to the application in the Online Workspace. Of course you will continue to determine which employees are allowed to access this and all the other applications.

Can I add users afterwards?

I am connecting my employees to a VPN connection to their data. Why would I switch to an Online Workspace?


The deployment of a VPN connection from another PC still requires a certain level of knowledge from VPN of the employee. This is not the case with the Online Workspace.  A significant argument to prefer an Online Workspace in favour of a VPN connection lies in the cost aspect and in managing them.


What to do when certain applications are running on a separate server (outside of the network)? Or what to do when the costs of control, housekeeping and/or maintenance our getting sky high. And what to do when new patches have to be installed, but when there are actually no time and no personnel resources available?

In these kind of circumstances the transition to an Online Workspace is the best choice. All the control, al the maintenance, all updates, backups, etcetera will be taken care of.

All Applications can be approached, whether these are on the network or not. Also you don’t have to look after it anymore and just have to pay a fixed amount per user per month and can scale up or down with the quantity of users within the Online workspace applicable subscription terms.

Also it is possible for every user to call our helpdesk in case of questions.


I want to approach my Online Workspace through WIFI. Is not that performing very slow?


When you have a modern broadband connection, you have a connection speed with is more than sufficient.


Don’t I have much more control when I am working with an internal solution?


You keep the finally control about the content of the Online Workspace.

You control for example the functionality of all application and you control which right every employee has to which information. The complex daily functions for system control will be carried out for you. Think for example of the case of the control of the operation system. The carrying out of patches, the refining and maximizing of performances, the improvement of the protection against viruses and cyber-attacks, the making of back-ups, and the archiving of information.

In this way you will keep the control of all the essential parts, while the underlying processes and security are being taken care of for you at the background by Perrit.
