Benefits of managed networks

Our Managed Network services are available to all sizes and types of organisation. We use a combination of remote automation tools and our expert IT support technicians to provide a unique range of benefits:

  • Fewer problems or disruption
  • No disruption during setup
  • 24 x 7 real-time monitoring for potential issues
  • Pre-emptive maintenance – acting on early alerts to prevent issues

 

  • Scalable pricing and value for money
  • Ongoing technical support
  • Better security
  • Anti-virus, threat management, and software patching updates

What’s involved?

Prevention is better than cure. 24x7x365, we use our monitoring and event management to improve network performance, to spot potential issues and to stop problems happening.

We also run scans and update your software patches and hotfixes, anti-virus definitions, and threat management. This also reduces the risk of problems, and maximises your network security.

What we cover

We provide ongoing management, as well as consultation, design, implementation, or configuration of all the following technologies (and some more):

  • Servers

We’re fully accredited by Microsoft and Dell, with vast experience of Windows and Linux servers (plus the underlying hardware), including Active Directory administration and Group Policy management. We also cover virtualisation and high availability solutions.

  • Directory/Account Administration

We manage Directory Services for many clients, including their data security, access to resources, ICT standards and desktop computer settings.

  • Monitoring

Using industry-leading remote monitoring and management software as a base, we’ve modified it to check all the key elements of your network and infrastructure, so we continuously check for potential issues (Event Management) and pre-emptively resolve problems.

We keep everything running smoothly, report on the health of your systems and provide inventories when needed.

  • VPN

Computing over distances (remote working, or site-to-site connectivity in a WAN) requires security and efficient routing of network traffic. We can manage this for you to ensure that this works as flawlessly and reliably as possible.

  • Cabling and Ethernet

Installations, surveys, compliance testing and documentation are conducted by our qualified engineers, whether the cabling is Ethernet or Fibre Optic.  Cabling installations come with a guarantee of up to 25 years.

  • LAN, VLAN and Wireless

As well as physical cabling we’re able to help with your LAN management and configuration, including virtual network segmentation (VLANs) and Wireless integration. This covers ongoing maintenance, optimisation and security.

  • Mobility

Our expertise includes telephony so we can manage your mobility throughout, from Mobile Device Management (MDM) of mobile phones, through telephone number diversion, to secure remote access to your business systems and information for homeworkers or people out on the road.

  • Internet and Broadband

We provide a single-stop, fully managed and integrated Internet access solution, complete with underlying broadband (including capability for site-to-site private links with options for redundancy and failover).

We can manage your security and access (firewalling), as well as IP configuration (DNS, Name hosting, DHCP, addressing schemes and so on) to meet your requirements.

We only partner with the best
