Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity
The word “disaster” carries an unsavory tone for most, but disasters DO happen and every business must have a plan in place to guarantee business continuity and overall company survival. Whether the disaster is man-made or natural, your Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) should cover any data, hardware, and software that is critical to keep your business functioning properly. We are experts in Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) can help you develop a DRP that’s right for your business, your risks, and your budget.
We analyze business continuity and redundancy as the focal points for your DRP. In doing so, we look to determine the following:
- How long can your business be out of service should a disaster occur?
- What are the mission critical functions that you need to continue to function?
- Is your budget robust enough to handle the needs that you have identified as mission critical above?
- Do you have alternate routes for your network data should the main access point fail or be inaccessible in a disaster?
- Are your redundant connections susceptible to the same outages as your primary network?
Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN)
SD-WAN stands for Software Defined Wide Area Networking. It’s a combination of Software Defined Networking (SDN), which was created for use in cloud data centers, and Wide Area Networking (WAN) which is the network outside of your office (e.g. the Internet, or site-to-site networks like MPLS) It simplifies enterprise connectivity to remote locations and branch offices, providing needed flexibility, centralized control and monitoring, and reducing WAN costs.
Most applications and services are being consumed in the cloud, such as Salesforce, Azure/AWS, Hosted Voice, Contact Centers, Office 365, etc. It is much more efficient to route traffic from each location directly to the Internet to consume these services rather than have a MPLS network where you have to go back to a central site, then hit the Internet.
Firewall (Premise and Cloud)
Your business shouldn’t have to choose between network security and technology infrastructure. CTG offers both premise and cloud-based firewall protection that ensures you are protected against network attacks and threats without compromising your network’s performance. We provide firewall solutions that deliver unparalleled security effectiveness.
This protection extends across your entire business network, saving you time and money all within one intuitive firewall system. With CTG,we can help you evaluate which type of firewall is best for your company. CTG firewall solutions allows our clients to monitor usage patterns and immediately identify security threats, ensuring that you always know what’s happening with your network.
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)
Do you have a variety of users on your network that require different levels of access and security based on their role or status in your organization? Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) from CTG allows you to run user desktops inside a virtual machine that lives on a server on site or in a data center. This allows for fully personalized desktops for each user depending on their role in your company, but with a simplified and secure centralized management.
The VDI solution from CTG enables organizations to centrally manage the desktops you support, ensuring that all security software and patches are up to date. And since all the data is stored on a server in a secure data center, a stolen or misplaced laptop doesn’t pose any risk to your data. VDI also gives your end-users mobility and the freedom to access virtual desktops anytime, from anywhere, on any device. Rather than fighting with employees who want to use their own laptops or tablets, the BYOD dilemma is solved with the Anywhere/Anytime access that VDI allows.
Infrastructure-as-a-Service solutions from CTG allow you to stop worrying about your IT infrastructure and hardware and focus your time on more important things like running your business.
