HGC Digital Office launched to provide one-stop ICT office solution

Secure and efficient mobile office with enterprise-grade IT infrastructure and services


HGC Global Communications Limited (HGC) recently launched HGC Digital Office, a one-stop ICT office solution designed to help small and medium enterprises (SMEs) enhance their IT and digital systems and accelerate their digital transformation.


Building on HGC's well-established broadband, voice, and IT support services, HGC Digital Office will offer a one-stop cloud office solution that includes HGC Secured Broadband and online and office IT consultancy. Additionally, it will provide access to comprehensive solutions that cover network infrastructure, unified collaboration, monitoring, cybersecurity, and cloud deployment.


Talent shortage and technical issues have long been major pain points for SMEs, which often have fewer resources compared to larger enterprises. The newly launched HGC Digital Office addresses these challenges by offering a comprehensive solution that combines the necessary equipment and services for a fixed monthly fee. This enables SMEs to access flexible manpower, security support, and streamlined IT administration and budgeting.


Furthermore, HGC's team of experts provides one-stop IT support and consultancy through the ONE Hotline Service, with support from HGC IT Smart Hand service. This service covers various areas including general IT support, cybersecurity, and cloud office infrastructure. By leveraging these resources, enterprises are better equipped to seize new opportunities in the ever-evolving digital landscape.


In addition to the ONE Hotline Service, HGC Digital Office will provide the following services to help SMEs offer a secure and efficient mobile office experience with enterprise-grade infrastructure and equipment:

  • Network infrastructure: The HPE Aruba Networking network infrastructure is specially designed to support bandwidth-demanding applications, such as voice and video virtual meetings. The Aruba Instant On switch and AP offer Wi-Fi 6 access with WPA2 and WPA3 protection for enhanced privacy, security, and cloud management. These solutions provide SMEs with a stable and reliable network connection.

  • Cybersecurity: The HGC Secured Broadband service, provided by HGC and Check Point Software, combines an extensive fibre optic network backbone with a prevention-focused Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solution. Its world-class firewall protects organizations from cybersecurity threats such as ransomware, phishing websites, and zero-day attacks. This solution also enables SMEs to save on hardware investment and reduce some of the IT team's workload.

  • Virtual server: By leveraging resources from Alibaba Cloud's Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), enterprises can fulfil their need for reliable cloud server with an efficient, flexible, and secure virtual cloud server that can scale up or down based on real-time demand.

  • Unified Communications: HGC UC is an enterprise-grade unified communications solution that enables teams to stay connected from anywhere using their smartphones, landline phones, or laptops. With voice calls, text messages, and video conferencing, colleagues can collaborate with their local and overseas counterparts, customers, and partners using a single phone number. Integrated conferencing tools from Jabra enhance distance business. The solution uses the Microsoft® 365 productivity cloud to facilitate online collaboration and information sharing for employees working remotely, while also safeguarding business data with built-in security features. It simplifies installation and management, and reduces costs.
