Encore operates and maintains a powerful and secure cloud computing capability in redundant US data centers for the service and support of client applications and data storage as well as Encore-delivered SaaS solutions.
Encore CloudAccess computing power and expert professional services combined with the proven solutions of our business partner, Microsoft, deliver a formidable value proposition for IT managers struggling to do more with less. Add up the value of these benefits, and it’s easy to see how CloudAccess returns its initial investment quickly:
CloudAccess Always Available Authentication for Microsoft Active Directory
Encore has earned the highest designation in Microsoft’s business alliance program – Gold Partner – by adding real business value to Microsoft solutions. Through our partnership, CloudAccess is recommended as a failover authentication solution for Office 365 and other Active Directory clients as part of a business continuity strategy that ensures secure employee email and network access is maintained. Versus an internally hosted and supported failover system, CloudAccess is clearly a better value on price and performance.
For most Encore clients, however, our Office 365 solution becomes only one component of an enterprise Encore CloudAccess solution that extends the value of cloud computing – high availability, high security, and low cost – to all business systems.

With Encore, clients focus on their core business assured that critical business systems are always available at any scale, secure from any threat, and maintained cost effectively.
