Cloud Desktop Security

Data security is one of the top priorities for MrPC Desktop. As a customer, you place your faith and trust in us to ensure that we fortify and maintain the border that protects your information within the confines of your segregated corporate profile 100% of the time.

Gateway Security

Spam, Virus, Malware detection and data blocking gateway security policies protect all of our customers at a base level. Multiple levels of Intrusion Prevention are employed within security zones using the most sophisticated threat management infrastructure technologies to guarantee our client platforms are never penetrated.

Data Residency

All MrPC Desktop data resides onshore within Australian borders in controlled top-tier Data Centres. Your data is completely secure and protected by Australian Governance laws.

Data Separation

Using various industry-leading tools from vendors such as Cisco and VMware, MrPC Desktop is able to maintain strict isolation of data from other VMs or groups of VMs using zone technology to connect to storage systems through a network that is segmented and secured.

Private Cloud

All of MrPC Desktop’s customers’ compute resources are completely isolated in their own private cloud. These private clouds are protected by VLANs and routers. By default, there are no ports open facing the Internet and this makes direct penetration(s) impossible.

Citrix traffic is directed through secure, Datacentre-grade routers and firewalls capable of intrusion prevention and security scanning. Citrix sessions are all encrypted in 2048bit SSL tunnels and secured by the Citrix NetScaler Access Gateway. These elements provide completely secured end to end desktop sessions.

Data Centres

MrPC Desktop utilises the services of two of Australia’s premier Data Centre facilities. Architected to be Globally Site Load Balanced, each Data Centre provides strict security compliance policies:

Cloud Desktop - Backup

MrPC Desktop ensures data is protected and available at all times. MrPC Desktop employs native shadow, snapshot and backup elements inherent in the Microsoft Windows/Server platform and the MrPC Desktop Cloud Management platform that removes dependency on 3rd party agents and provides incremental reports on the success of all scheduled backup tasks. Alerts are triggered in the event of any backup failure across all volumes within the MrPC environment.

Scheduled daily snapshots of user data are taken from the primary MrPC Desktop Data Centre and moved across to a secondary (off-site) Data Centre location. The snapshots are retained for a period of 7 days on disk. Weekly backups of user data are taken and retained for a period of 4 weeks (1 month) and monthly backups are retained for 12 months (1 year). Further to this, if selected, backup retention can be extended to 84 months.

The entire MrPC Desktop infrastructure environment is protected against fault. Each element of the infrastructure – including all environment configuration, machine configuration and supporting infrastructure is backed up, replicated and stored in physically separated zones.
