Network management entails a variety of tasks, depending on what router or switch you use. We are a SonicWALL Partner and can provide a very robust solution to gateway security. There are many firewalls on the market with many different options but dollar for dollar, I have found SonicWALL to be the best value for your dollar, especially sine you can choose what, if any services you need. I recommend the Comprehensive Gateway Security Suite because it covers literally every threat imaginable and well as antivirus for servers and Workstations that work with the firewall to ensure you are protected.
Switches are a vital part of any network and there are several types of switches to chose from. Most networks need VLan (Virtual LAN) capabilities. If you have any privacy concerns you need the services for each network on a different VLan. HIPAA requires VoIP phones as well as security cameras be on different networks than any POS equipment including Credit card machines. The PCI Compliance scans will not pass you if they are not on separate networks, especially in the health industry. In these cases and “dumb” switch cannot be used. You need a managed switch.
Digital Data Services Technicians are trained thoroughly in SonicWALL and Dell Switches and we are a Dell Partner.
We are trained in designing and maintaining complex networks and and can provide you with monitoring and management when your companies needs change. We can optimize network traffic for the best thru put for all your applications.
