Managed Infrastructure

It’s difficult and expensive to manage routers, switches, firewall, Wifi, cameras, and PC and mobile applications when you’re faced with a mix of different vendors and suppliers. You buy what your ‘IT guy’ tells you to buy and you hope that it’s the right thing.

Those days are gone….

Our solution provides you with all the key ingredients of a network, managed via an easy-to-understand online portal. You now have insight in all the key elements of your network, so you don’t need to believe everything you’re told – you can see it all for yourself.

We have partnered with Cisco Meraki to bring you the best in class and the latest in technology – fully managed without the need for expensive capital investment.

Our Meraki security appliance supports several security features like stateful firewall, intrusion prevention engine and threat management. As your business needs evolve, you can dynamically update your firewall, making your systems more responsive and secure. Threat definitions and filter lists are seamlessly updated, ensuring every site has bleeding-edge protection from the latest vulnerabilities and troublesome websites.

By monitoring the traffic patterns in your business yourself, you can, for example, restrict access to social media at certain times of day, or block access to harmful websites. Although we manage the service for you, we give you full access to view and micro-manage your service – empowering you to know and understand how your security system works.

Our devices come with fault-tolerance capabilities, allowing for seamless fail-over and maximum uptime. We follow a zero-touch provisioning methodology, which means deployment or replacements are quick and painless.

For the first time, it’s now possible to integrate your firewall and LAN switches deployment, optimising the way they work hand in hand. You can visually access what is configured on your LAN switches with the same portal interface that you use to manage your firewall.

Configuration and troubleshooting is trouble-free now, enabling you to deploy quickly, but also to seek and resolve problems quickly, without having to dispatch expensive network engineers to do so. Our Meraki switches provide groundbreaking management tools – which means you can grow effortlessly, without complexity.

Wifi is no longer a ‘nice to have’; it’s imperative if you want to enable collaboration and productivity in an organization. More devices, more apps, hot desking and so on, require high capacity access points in an office environment. Users want a seamless experience that works anywhere in the office, whether they’re sitting at their desk or on the move.

Our Meraki access points are controlled and managed via the same online portal as your firewall and LAN switches. The offering provides insightful reporting on how and where users use Wifi. We can respond quickly to changing business needs, while ensuring a high level of security for your Wifi deployment.

The outcome: faster connections, greater user capacity, more coverage, and fewer user complaints.

Cameras play a vital role in the security ecosystem of every business. Historically, cameras have been costly to install and maintain, but, more importantly, they function reactively – only once a security breach has secured do you hope they have functioned properly.

Our Meraki cameras solution runs on the same network as your servers, PCs, Wifi and phones. The cameras are managed and controlled via the same online portal as your firewall, LAN switches and Wifi. The intelligence of the system lives in the Cloud, which means that as soon as new features come out, they are automatically available to all our customers – no need to send engineering resources out; no need to keep upgrading hardware.

You can configure parameters and set up alerts for what you want to record, and when – so you’ll always know if your cameras are functioning fully. You can access recordings from anywhere via the simple online portal.

It’s always a challenge to manage and control devices and applications that users on your network connect to at will. Typically, there are disparate systems and strategies that require managing, which can leave considerable gaps in your security fabric.

Cisco Meraki offers the only solution that provides unified management of mobile devices, Macs, PCs, and the entire network, from a centralised dashboard. From this single control point, you can enforce device security policies, deploy software and apps, and perform remote, live troubleshooting on thousands of managed devices.
