IT network security highlighted features:
Threats may come from both inside and outside your network. IT Support will monitor your servers and workstations to identify unauthorized users and inform you about threats to network integrity initiated inside or outside your organization.
Event Log Checks
We analyze the server(s) event log, which reports all errors generated by applications, security audits, and fatal operating system messages. A detailed analysis of these records will provide hints of possible future server failures.
We will oversee your backup software and ensure that each scheduled backup job completes successfully. Whether you have your own solution or are in the market, our network administrators can diagnose problems easily and efficiently.
Lightweight & Fast
For total security, you need cloud-based endpoint protection. In a recent study, Webroot boasted:
- 40x faster install
- 97x faster scheduled scans
- 69x less disk space required
Our It network security includes a nightly or weekly snap shot of all processes and threads running. This provides us with a detailed log of what software is currently installed, alerting us of any back door malware that may enable remote users unauthorized access.
Keeping a detailed log of available memory and hard drive space is crucial.
IT network security is not all we do. We monitor the usage of your system resources and will notify you when a new hard drive or memory upgrade is needed.
What happens when an alarm is produced?
Our IT network security monitoring alert flow:
- Client device produces an alarm and immediately alerts monitoring server.
- A ticket is created and transmitted to the assigned network administrator(s).
- Within minutes the ticket is reviewed and investigated.
- The source and severity of the alarm are determined, and necessary steps taken to resolve the issue.*
*SLA procedures are followed closely if the customer has requested custom steps to be taken during alerts/ticketing and support services.
Network Installation: an 8-Step Prep Sheet
How to Plan for Success
8 Step Network Installation Plan: As anyone that runs a successful business will tell you, planning is the key to success. Proper preparation eliminates the unknowns and variables that can throw a wrench into an engineer’s design.
That’s why we allow as much (or as little) time as it takes to complete the network installation plan thoroughly.
Suggestions or concerns? We’d love to hear from you!
- Assessment: Usage Requirements
We like to start with finding out how many users will be accessing the network. This gives us a rough idea of how many devices, peripherals and endpoints the network must support.
- Assessment: User Access Details & Requirements
Understanding how users will be interacting with their systems will help lay out the features needed.
Are employees bringing systems to and from work? Extra security measures should be taken to secure these devices, as outside threats are some of the biggest.
Do employees share systems or do they each have their own? Is remote access to the network required for some users? From home, hotel, different business location?
Effective planning can limit the system downtime, reduce network crashes and ensure a seamless transition and minimal disruption to users.
- Research & Ask Questions
Start by defining the requirements of the various teams and
departments. Determine the relative costs of incorporating the different requirements into the network plan. This may be in terms of money or time saved.
- Plan for Growth
Every network installation plan MUST account for growth.
Detail or factor in, to the best of your knowledge, the direction your organization is likely to take in the near future (3-5 years). As you think about expansion, identify any plans that might affect your network needs (e.g. new staff or volunteers, office expansion, remote working, or the installation of new software packages).
Doing this now will be less expensive and time-consuming than replacing an inadequate network later.
- Partner with a Network Security & Management Provider
Network neglect is the #1 issue we face. Time and time again, we are called in to put out expensive fires that cost downtime, workplace inefficiency, and of course dollars.
Many more dollars than our network management services would have accrued. That’s a promise.
Take the network installation plan seriously. Do you value the data that drives your business? How about maximizing employee efficiency? It is worth considering using remote network administration tools to reduce the number of on-site visits necessary to keep the network running smoothly.
- Assessment: Security Layers Required
Hackers are after 1 asset. INFORMATION.
Whether it’s an encryption key, access requirements and credentials, financials, government secrets– or simply the information required to lock you out of your own data and seek financial gain– the list goes on.
Are you protected from ransomware and zero-day threats? Here’s the #1 prescription for the majority of our clients.
Common network security precautions include proper password management, endpoint protection (simple virus solutions won’t protect you anymore), an external firewall, VPN for remote access, and data encryption.
- Management of Information and PID
Compliance will continue to dig her nails into core business processes such as HIPAA and PCI card processing requirements. Automated solutions for managing and removing sensitive data from your network when storage becomes unnecessary.
Furthermore, consider how to manage information on your server so that users can easily find what they need. Create standardized naming conventions for files on the server and establish rules for the creation of new files and folders.
Or, just keep saving everything to your desktop.
- Staff Security Training
While working with a network is relatively simple, proper education greatly decreases threat exposure. It also may demand that employees adopt new habits.
A training program will enable workers to take full advantage of your network’s timesaving and productivity enhancing features. Ensure training time is built into your network rollout timetable and offer follow up sessions to address ongoing staff challenges and concerns.
