Service Spotlight: Enfrastructure Services™ (Part 2)

Last month we went over the first portion of what falls under our Enfrastructure Services™ – Network Architecture + Support, Virtualization, Server Migration, Backup & Disaster Recovery, Office365 and Active Directory.  That’s a lot, and it’s only half!  Let’s get into the rest…

Remote Connections

Expand your network outside of your physical premises making it possible for your users to work anywhere as if they were working in the office. This can happen through a remote desktop gateway, site to site or client to site VPN. A VPN (virtual private network) is a secure network connection from wherever your user is to the main office. Speaking of secure…

Security & IT Compliance

We hear about it more and more, hacking is everywhere and we need to make sure we have the right tools in place to keep our companies safe. Our security and compliance Enfrastructure Services™ can help make sure that’s the case. We can analyze and document everything from permissions on file servers, security groups, and network edge security understanding what firewalls are doing, how they are configured and if they are sufficient. If they are not, we’ll make a plan to get them up to speed.

This can effect compliance if you need to uphold a certain security level on your networks. Outside of just security, our team can assist in understanding what regulatory requirements mean and how we can meet them, such as retaining data, email and whether or not what is in place will stand up to an audit.

Wireless Networks

Don’t you hate when you’re walking through a building and your signal just gets weaker and weaker the further you go… let’s remove that issue.

We’ll go through an assessment of your wireless network, determining signal strength, dead spots and deficiencies in the network. We’ll then design and plan a new wireless network infrastructure. The seamless handoff between access points in your new mesh network will keep you up and working no matter where you are in the building.

Strategic IT Planning + Project Management

Saving the best for last… very big picture, this is one of the most important services we offer. Envision IT Partners will act as your Virtual CIO.

It’s not always realized until business changes are going to be made, but IT touches a lot when it comes to your business. As your IT partner and Virtual CIO, we come in looking at the big picture from the business side and help to create goals and objectives before developing IT strategies to achieve them.

Regular sit down meetings allow for a long term roadmap to be followed, checking in on progress and understanding both when and how there will need to be a technical change, how the business will budget, and help management teams choose between alternatives to find the best solution (ie: on premise vs. cloud server, etc.)

Budgeting properly and comprehensive 5 year plans can make all the difference in avoiding pitfalls and making the wrong decisions.

That is a LOT to digest, but we hope it brings some clarity to this side of the IT business.

As always, please contact us at any time and we’d be happy to answer any questions you may have!
