Solutions for an Efficient Network
Network Security and Management
Data and applications continue to grow at an exponential rate, some of this is well managed and some is hiding in the shadows and users want to be able to access this information from a multitude of different device types, some more secure than others.
Endpoints connected to open Wi-Fi? Network perimeter firewalls not locked down as comprehensively as they should be? Switches running unsupported or vastly out of date code levels? Users hosting data in the Cloud despite organisational security policy? By 2021, 50% of workloads are predicted to be in the cloud by 2021, will our data be safe? Role Based Access Control models not deployed to all infrastructure? All common scenarios that could impact your ability as IT to report to your CISO that you have secured the network to the best of your ability.
Managing your infrastructure has always been a fine balance of often utilising the same staff for strategic (project) and operational (support) activities and every IT manager or director would say that they spend more time than they would like on the latter. By improving things like visibility of your IT infrastructure so you can truly see what is going on, plus using automation for some of the repeatable, error prone and time-consuming tasks, you can free up some capacity within your teams to work on delivering technology as a real benefit to your organisation and users.
No matter whether your infrastructure is in Private, Public or Hybrid Cloud, it stills requires expert management. This is to ensure that the elements that users and customers take for granted such as high performance, high availability and fast delivery of change to the business are achievable which you can’t provide if your environment is poorly managed and reactive. The closer you can get as IT in helping deliver your organisation’s digital transformation strategy, the less you will be seen as a cost to the business.
