Business Network Security
Security threats against networks are becoming more and more sophisticated and harder to detect. At the same time, the consequences of failing to prevent or stop the attacks are significant and can result in huge economical losses for businesses and their customers. Moreover, government can impose hefty legal penalties in certain environments where customers information should be protected for legal reasons.
With the introduction of every new technology comes new threats to your network. Many of these technologies promise to deliver faster, cheaper, and more efficient operation. Obviously, it is not to the providers’ advantage to inform you about the inherent threats of using their software/application.
The emergence of BYOD (Bring your own device) and mobile computing can impose an even greater risks to your network and the IT infrastructure. Another high-consequence, but low frequency, threat is the insiders’ threat.
We believe that a sound and secure network is set up to prevent and block any ill-minded attempts as well as external attacks. We do this by monitoring of your systems and networks to identify and block threats before they become problems.
It is safe to say that we all prefer to know in advance when something starts to go wrong before the damage gets too big to handle. Our system monitoring tools are designed to serve as the early warning mechanisms for your computers and network. It’s a small piece of software installed on each computer/server that notifies the system administrator about any potential issues as soon as they start developing. A good example of such issue is your computer’s hard drive that can deteriorate with no warning signs until it’s too late to do anything about it. Our tools monitor the computer hard drive and fire a notification to our Network Operation Center (NOC) staff so they could take the necessary steps in mitigating the risk.
Such powerful tool along with our 24/7 active maintenance services allows us to attend to every little issue and remedy a solution to keep your network up and running at all times.
Our automated maintenance software does more than just monitoring the health of your network devices, it allows us to actively maintain your systems 24/7. Our virtual technicians perform the routine maintenance of each computer/server on your network on a pre-determined schedule for a fraction of what a network technician can cost your business.

Public or Private Cloud? On-premise? Hybrid?
What is cloud anyway? It is placing your files or your line of business software on a server in a Data Center and then allowing your users access to the files or software from wherever they are. A good example of Public Cloud Software is Gmail and Google Docs. You place your files on their servers and access your files and emails via your Internet browser.
Private cloud is when you make your own office server accessible from outside the office, or place the server inside a Data Center to be accessible by you or your employees. Many small businesses prefer the private cloud because they have more control over it. In most cases, it is more cost effective to keep the server in your office as opposed to paying a Data Center. This way, even if your Internet access is interrupted at the office, your on-site users can still access the files through your LAN (Local network).
Give us a call if you consider moving to the cloud so we could discuss all operational and financial aspects of your data migration to see what type of cloud options are available to your industry and how your business could benefit from available cloud technologies.
