Wide Area Networks
Businesses often have complex, legacy networks that are expensive to run and are no longer fit for purpose with an ever-growing numbers of users, sites and cloud-based applications.
Wide Area Networks (WANs) offer private wide area networking capability, enabling businesses to realise the full benefits of a flexible and connected infrastructure.
Converging voice, data and multimedia traffic onto a single, secure network, can reduce costs and simplify your communications set-up, without sacrificing performance.
A WAN solution enables secure access to enterprise applications and resources, plus the sharing of information across any location and device. Our Wide Area Network solutions enable secure access to resources anywhere, anytime, from any device providing our customers with visibility, control and services to SLA’s.
Features and benefits
A WAN offers a higher level of network resilience, improved Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery. In addition, the ability to segment the network by application allows businesses to maximise the performance on an application basis.
- more productive and efficient working for staff
- protects personal data of clients and staff
- keeps information shared between devices on the same network, safe
- removes the risk of harm by hacking or viruses
Does spam clog your mailbox and eat your bandwidth? Do you know if any unauthorised broadband connections have been installed in your office? What about unsecured Wi-Fi hotspots? How much time do your staff waste surfing the web for non-work related activities?
And what is all this costing you?
Internet security is much more than just an anti-virus system – there are a variety of activities that can seem more annoying than dangerous, but can affect productivity and compromise data security.
We offer a complete security audit of your email system, servers, network and computers, and then recommend the best setup for your business. The audit is completely free if you proceed with our recommendations.
What is internet security?
Internet security is a branch of computer security specially related to the internet, often involving browser security, but also network security on a more general level as it applies to other applications or operating systems on a whole.
Its objective is to establish rules and measures to use against attacks over the internet. The internet represents an insecure channel for exchanging information leading to a high risk of intrusion or fraud, such as phishing. Different methods can be used to protect the transfer of data, including encryption.
Security offered by iCS
We can run a complete security audit of your email system, servers, network and computers. Upon doing this we can then recommend, implement and maintain any software or hardware needed.
