Build a Secure, Efficient IT Infrastructure
Published on May 18, 2016 in Technology
Technology can be challenging! Strategy’s IT assessment is a great way for your organization to get a clear picture of where you stand with your technology infrastructure, like your internet connections and server performance. Here are some specific ways we can help you make sure your systems are up-to-date, efficient, and secure.
Internet and Phones
We’ll conduct speed tests on your internet and phone connections to see how your current system is performing. If there’s a comparable phone and data plan that will save you money and increase connection speeds, we’ll recommend it.
We also check your physical phone system for any outdated technology that could be slowing you down. Newer systems are often more manageable and cost efficient, with increased longevity so you won’t have to worry about replacing it in a year. We can also add connections to your current system to improve file transfers and database management.
Our assessment will check your Wi-Fi coverage to make sure your signal is strong. We can install access points in your organization to increase coverage and avoid dropped calls. We’ll make sure security settings and policies are up to date, like your intrusion prevention services and firewall policies to help keep hackers from sneaking into your system through wireless access points.
Your servers keep the data you need to run your business secure and accessible. We’ll evaluate your server’s security features to make sure your data is safe, and check your storage capacity to see if you have enough space for the near future. If your server needs performance upgrades like more RAM, storage space, or an upgrade to the operating system, we’ll include it in our recommendations.
Overall Network Health
If the cables in the walls of your business are old and degrading, it won’t matter what equipment they’re plugged into. We’ll check the physical components of your network, like ethernet cables, routers and switches, to ensure you’re not losing speed or performance. We can replace old cable before it starts causing problems, and reprogram your routers and switches to optimize your network security and performance.
