In 1996 we pioneered the managed services concept and helped create the Managed Services Provider model that so many others claim to be doing today, but while they were catching up we were driving ahead and recognizing that for some business the day was coming when racks of servers in their offices would be a thing of the past.
That day has arrived. Starting this year JustWorks is now delivering completely cloud-based I.T. infrastructure for businesses with no physical servers, no Active Directory™, and no worries!
Incredibly efficient, effective and simple cloud services that span the range from file services to directory to telephony and online meetings are now all available from JustWorks with 0 delay, $0 startup and 0 commitment. Everything works together, everything is secure, and everything is managed by your very own cloud pilot – it just works!
Navigating this new cloud world is not for the faint of heart, littered with the wreckage of failed vendors and integration turbulence. That’s why you need an experienced pilot who can navigate the skies with you every step of the way. We Make IT Simple. Just step on board for a fixed monthly fee per user and the next thing you know you’ll be relaxing in the comfort of your very own private jet through the clouds, answering your calls anywhere in the world, opening offices with just a WiFi access point, and onboarding new employees in minutes.
Contact us if you’re interesting in joining our growing list of cloud enabled customers.
JustWorks has added the ability for our customers to send encrypted emails.
Should you need to send secure email, for instance to the bank or other security sensitive recipient, you need only mark the email as “Confidential” in the sensitivity setting (in Outlook, or through webmail Options…).
The email will automatically generate a request to the recipient to create their own password. After they have created their password, all emails will be delivered to them as PDF documents, encrypted with their password, and attached to an email – they use the password they set to open the PDF.
There is a reply button in the PDF that allows them to send you a secure reply using a web portal.
All subsequent emails to the same recipient will use the same password. If unused for 90 days they will have to create a new password.
We can reset the password for anyone who has lost/forgotten theirs, but that will not get them access to old emails encrypted with their old password.
There is no charge for this service, and any user can send as many secure emails as they wish to as many people as they wish. Service requests for password resets and troubleshooting will be billable.
The best way to get a feel for how it works is to send yourself a Confidential email to your personal/home email address.
We hope this new feature will prove useful to your company.
JustWorks has added some key new services to our full service managed systems portfolio. All of these services are available as extensions of your existing services, and they have all been tested by JustWorks in production.
To provide advanced services for the new “cloud” era we are offering new services to meet the following needs:
- Messaging, fax, conferencing & phone in single unified service
- File sharing accessible from any device, any where at any time
- Security enhancements for your Internet connection
Messaging, fax, conferencing & phone
We are happy to announce that we have partnered with RingCentral to bring you fully unified communications in the cloud.
RingCentral can completely replace your phone system, or just add additional functionality to what you already have. The service includes “follow me” phone numbers so that you only ever need to provide a single phone number for your business contacts to reach you, no matter whether you are sitting at your desk or on the road (even where you have WiFi but no cell phone signal!). The service also includes unlimited calls and SMS messaging in the continental USA, fax and voicemail to email integration, and last but not least online conferencing for phone, screen sharing and HD video.
You can find out more at www.ringcentral.com or just call us and we can walk you through how it might fit with your needs.
Pricing ranges from $40/month for your whole company, to $40/user/month for full phone functionality including a desk handset.
File sharing accessible from any device, any where at any time
JustWorks has partnered with Egnyte to enable the extension of your in-office file sharing out into the rest of the world, all while maintaining the high levels of security you have come to expect from JustWorks solutions.
Once we have setup your cloud file server, you will be able to access all your files from any web browser, smartphone, tablet or remote computer, with ease. You can also create connections for your vendors and subcontractors to share specific files/folders securely with them.
You can find out more at www.egnyte.com or just call us and we can walk you through how it might fit with your needs. The first 2 users and 1Tb is included in our Manage service level, and pricing is $20 or $40 per user/month after that, depending on what version you choose.
Security enhancements for your Internet connection
We have migrated all JustWorks installations to the Sophos security platform – there’s nothing you need to do, this is part of our service.
Now that the Sophos security system is in place at your offices we will be able to enhance your Internet and network security with better WiFi security, email encryption, and load balancing over multiple Internet connections.
We will also offer Sophos Reflexion email security as an alternative for email SPAM filtering, as McAfee are discontinuing their service.
We will be in touch with you when we roll this out to your site.
We are excited to be able to offer these new services, and look forward to making them simple for you take advantage of.
This is the start of the JustWorks blog.
Over time we will be adding article and posts to this site to keep you updated on the state of the I.T. industry and how developments in technology affect businesses. We will cover a range of topics including “cloud computing” and how best to use developments in Internet services for maximum effect.
Keep in touch, give us feedback and let us know what you find useful.
