SD WAN Service

A BETTER WAY TO NETWORK

A business in today’s rapid digital world cannot afford to be static, and neither can its IT infrastructure.

You need a network that is responsive enough to facilitate growth and innovation. It needs to be flexible, future-proof and capable enough to help your business achieve its goals instead of holding it back.

VIRTUALISED SERVICES ARE THE FUTURE

IT managers, eager to bypass the restrictions of legacy hardware and cumbersome configurations inhibiting new site setups and hindering support, are driving the transformation of business networks with Software-Defined Wide-Area Network or SD-WAN



Key benefits of the technology include:

A unified virtual network – a Software-Defined network allows for the linking of public and private Clouds, as well as bare infrastructure, to a single cohesive virtual network.

Greater efficiency – Applications and services can be prioritised and delivered across the network instantly with centralised policy management through a Cloud-based management portal.

ADD VALUE WITH OUR SD-WAN SOLUTION

SD-WAN is a unified, flexible and secure virtual network delivered as a plug-in-and-go solution that offers powerful and immediate benefits such as:

• Easier device management.
• Time and costs saved on set-up configuration and hardware.
• Routing traffic with maximum efficiency.
• Central management for greater control of security, usage and other policies.
• You can use your existing internet connectivity for SD-WAN, as SD-WAN is internet connectivity agnostic.

A rigid, traditional enterprise network invariably frustrates business growth objectives and these networks always pose challenges such as:

• Expensive networking technology, hardware and expertise.
• Dependency on hardware, requiring installations and constant maintenance.
• Heavy investment in legacy network technologies required to alleviate network congestion, or to add a new branch link as the business expands.
• Network downtime affecting service delivery to customers and consequently, the reputation of the business


SD-WAN FEATURES

Ignite SD-WAN brings together access policy management, visibility and control over the network, performance monitoring and event-logging onto a single device through a user-friendly dashboard.

  • A Unified Edge (uEdge) device ships to the branch office and connects over secure Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS).
  • The zero-touch provisioning switch feature allows devices to be provisioned and configured automatically, enabling rapid deployment.
  • VPN tunnels can be established once network policies and functions have been pushed down to the uEdge device.
  • Network Address Translation (NAT) traversal support allows for VPN tunnels to be established over challenging global transport configurations.
  • Up to 50Mbps Internet Connectivity supported per uEdge device per site.

    AVG

    Anti Virus

    The fact that we still refer to this type of software as "antivirus" is out of date. No longer do we have to be worried only about nasty viruses infecting our computers and wiping out our personal data. Malware is perhaps more common today, with a different tactic to achieve a still-nefarious goal.
    The worst part is that the "best" malware — if you can really even call it that — will quietly sneak its way onto your PC without you knowing. It'll maybe lie dormant, hidden from view, but all the while do something that you don't want it to.
    Whatever the term for it, the threats out there are still very real.

    We do this by using an Open Source software called ownCloud. We have configured this software to run on our Cloud Servers and all you have to do is the below:
    • Register with us.
    • Install the client software on your computer.
    • Enter your logon information.
    • Link the data you want to backup and sync.
    • Then your data will be copied to our Cloud Servers and synced from that point on.
    How it works:
    Your data is synced to the Cloud Servers real time when you are connected to any Internet access in the world. When you make a change to a document as you save it, it gets synced to the Cloud Server.
    If you are offline so not connected to the Internet as soon as you do connect all your changes will be synced to the Cloud Server.
