Core Competency: Security
Networks should be built using open standards, simple management platforms, and provide end-to-end security of data and systems.
As networks evolve to meet the dynamic needs of your business, securing those networks must also evolve. Whether you’re dealing with a legacy on-premises system or a complex architecture consisting of multiple hybrid cloud systems, controlling access to your data and systems has never been more important. Attackers are innovating and so must we. We must shift our focus from network security to building a secure network - both on-premises and in the cloud.
Steps to Securing Your Environment
Secure the Internet Edge
The majority of security threats live on the Internet. The path of least resistance to your network is through the Internet connection. Designing and implementing a multi-tier security solution is essential to insuring that the attackers knocking at the door never get in.
Secure the Datacenter
In today’s ever evolving threat landscape, the risk of inside threats such as malware or malicious users has never been higher. In order to prevent these types of threats, we have to verify the integrity of the devices, users, and systems that we permit to access our protected resources.
Secure Access to the Cloud
Shifting workloads and resources to the cloud enables businesses to realize significant cost savings and efficiencies, but how do we insure that access to those workloads and resources maintains the same high level of security that we’ve implemented in the data center? By designing and implementing solutions that provide secure access to cloud resources such as IPSEC VPN, L2 / L3 VPN, VxLAN, and MPLS, to name a few.
Secure Communication Within the Cloud
Resources in the cloud are vulnerable to the same attack vectors as the data center. A compromised host in the cloud can reach out to other systems and resources, both cloud and data center based. No longer can we only worry about securing North / South traffic, Internet-based traffic, client-server traffic, and traffic to and from the cloud. We must also secure the East / West traffic between hosts, systems, resources, VM’s, and containers across the enterprise.

A network assessment can be used for planning and implementing new network segments or technologies, identifying bottlenecks, or simply to identify ways to optimize the network.
Attackers aim to find and exploit your weaknesses before you can identify and fix them. Our vulnerability assessment will allow you to address vulnerabilities before they become a problem.
