  • Disaster Recovery Assessments, helping institutions define recovery objectives and processes, as well as simulating an outage disaster recovery test; and

Apogee Security Professional Services include:

"Embracing the cloud and hybrid cloud can create new opportunities, and protecting critical data can minimize the impact of a cyber attack. But many colleges and universities are struggling with limited cloud and security expertise and little time to devote to these strategies, " said Dave Fuhrmann, Apogee vice president of cloud services and security solutions, in a statement. "I'm elated that we are able to provide our institutional clients with the professional services needed to forge a path to the cloud or hybrid cloud and to enhance the efficiency, security, and performance of campus applications, data, and data center infrastructure.
