VPN Solutions for Small Business in Los AngelesIf you have one or few employees who work from their location, not company’s HQ you definitely need to consider setting up a virtual private network (VPN). Even if your all employees are stationed at your premises VPN will straighten your network security, privacy and protect valuable business data. As many time before, privacy is a priority! What is VPN and how it works? By adding one or more security layers to your public business network you can create a more secure network for your company. This means that data within your network is encrypted and stays private for anyone outside the network. VPN is possible to access remotely from every location if you have the right credentials of course. This way you or your employees can share company’s resources like printing document, file sharing, etc. regardless of their location. Our network specialists can set VPN for your business in three ways:
- Using a third-party software - many different vendors offer this type of software used for network virtualization;
- Using firewall – almost all firewall manufacturers offer built-in VPN capabilities like Site-to-Site VPN (connecting multiple sites permanently by using firewalls) or client VPN capabilities (using their own proprietary software that connects directly to the firewall and allow VPN access for the user);
- By using your own Windows Server capabilities – Mostly versions of Windows Servers offer the VPN feature. Setup can be lengthy, but it does offer the greatest encryption and speeds around (SSTP certificate-based VPN).
Firewall & Wi-Fi Router SupportSmall and medium-sized businesses were many times under heavy hacking attacks. Treats have evolved, hackers got even smarter using social engineering along with cyber techniques to get valuable data about your clients. A business network that does not use firewalls and routers can easily face data loss. Unfortunately, most recent studies have shown that many small business owners are not aware how important network security is. Don’t be one of them! To protect your computer network and complete IT ecosystem our engineers recommend the use of hardware firewall. Having a firewall that is paired with well-adjusted Wi-Fi router is a key step in:
- Traffic logging (track and keep logs of all attempts to access the network),
- Anti-viruses & ant-spam protection,
- Preventing internal threats,
- Intrusion prevention,
- Web filtering
Virtualization for Small Business
What is virtualization after all?Virtualization in computing is a process of making or creating a virtual version of something in order to manage workload. A most common form of virtualization is operating system virtualization. It allows one computer to run multiple different OS.
Learn How Virtualization Works?
- Operating system virtualization; Allows you to deploy multiple different OS on a single machine
- Desktop virtualization (client virtualization); Allows you can have ONE simulated desktop environment on many physical machines. All environments are managed by one administrator. Because of centralized management, improved security, time management and energy saving this is the most popular type of virtualization among small and medium businesses.
- Server virtualization; In order to improve and optimize workload of the server we’ll, using a virtualization software, make several virtual servers by partitioning your physical server. Every virtual server can run different operating system and applications.
- Network virtualization: One of the key components of network virtualization is Virtual Private Network. VPN is a method used to combine many different physically separated networks into a single virtual network, thus allowing free communication between devices as if they were connected to the same network. But that is not the only type of network virtualization. By using the method of virtualization, NAS drives could be turned into a regular drive appearing to be directly attached to a server or computer, while clearly being connected to a network.
Remote Access Solution for Business NetworksIf you want to remotely access your business network, securely of course, and be able to use documents and files or send and receive emails the same way you do while in office, you need to have one of Remote access solutions. Remote access can be achieved by these two methods:
- Using third-party remote access software like LogMeIn, Team Viewer, GoToMyPC, Remote Connect, Remote Desktop (Windows native application), or even Google Chrome browser. All software solutions are very similar, but implementation depends a lot on a number of computers connected to the network. Remote access programs allow the user to connect to a machine located in office only if it is powered on and has an active Internet connection.
- Setting up Virtual Private Network (VPN) that we have discussed in lines from above;
