Computers and IT are integral parts to any successful business. At Entré, connecting people and providing access to important information is a key part of how we help businesses grow. To meet the demands of business, a proper computer network must be designed, established and maintained. To make it as secure as possible, it must have network firewall security and sufficient network security monitoring. A successful, secure network must be available nearly 100% of the time and be able to adjust to the needs of a company as it grows and changes. Entré is focused on designing a comprehensive network specific to your company. Since each business is different, we will develop a plan with your future goals in mind to create a computer network that will grow and adapt to the future of your business.

How We Design a Network

Designing a network involves evaluating and understanding the scope of work it must perform. Collaborating and discussing what will work for you is just the beginning of an Entré designed network. Understanding the network’s components and planned connections between them will help draw a blueprint for your specific needs. Your network design will be represented in a network diagram noting specific parts of your system.

Development of a Network

Our goals for your network would tie in with the initial blueprint, so every piece of technology and hardware works cohesively and seamlessly for your business. A successful network will have multiple pieces that will come into play as the initial phase of development takes place.

Scalability

Network designs can grow to include new users as a company grows. If needed, remote locations can be added to fast-growing businesses.

Availability

Your network must be available 24/7 and your design will include network availability to guarantee reliable performance. Failure of a single link, or the loss of a data packet should not disable the entire network.

Security

Network security is critical to safeguarding resources. Entre will take a layered approach to network security. The cyber security for each internal network is drawn into the network from initial stages to make it airtight, flexible to your specific needs and expandable as cyber threats grow more complex. We will use the latest generation firewalls, antivirus protection, and make sure you have security policies in place. Your network security plan will include real-time threat intelligence and remediation to detect and respond to internal and external attacks with correct incident response. We will make sure the type of firewall used protects all port numbers, network addresses, proxy servers and proxy firewalls, and all application layers.

Manageability

After proper network security has been established, a network needs to be maintained to function effectively. With that in mind, we develop a network that will be manageable through us or your available networking staff.

A successful computer network, with proper network security, will be the backbone of your business. At Entré, we will design one that will keep your company running properly and efficiently and it will be secure, so your important data is protected from loss. Something so integral to your business should be in the forefront of your mind and considered with the utmost care. Let us design a secure, network for your business today!
