Security Management

Firewall Management

Kalmer Solutions can make sure that your firewall contains secure software as well as proper ACL’s and policies. Through our managed services plans, we can monitor your firewall real-time 24/7, 365 days a year. Firewall solutions we can support (but aren’t limited to) include: Cisco, Proventia, SonicWall, 3Com, Enterux, Juniper and WatchGuard.

Patch Management

Computer networks are only as secure as the weakest link. It’s critically important to keep servers, clients, routers, and firewalls up-to-date. Manufactures such as Microsoft, Cisco, and Sonicwall, often release patches which can fix security glitches or improve performance. Keeping up with these patches can sometimes be a challenge when you have multiple servers, routers, and client PC’s. Kalmer Solutions can take care of your patch management needs or concerns. We can manage critical patch levels for:

  • Virtually all Microsoft products
  • Cisco ASA & PIX
  • Cisco IOS – switches and routers
  • Client PC’s
  • Servers – Linux, Microsoft
  • Virtually all firewall solutions

Anti-Virus/Spyware Management

A computer virus is a computer program that can copy itself and infect a computer without permission or knowledge of the user. The original may modify the copies or the copies may modify themselves, as occurs in a metamorphic virus. A virus can only spread from one computer to another when its host is taken to the uninfected computer, for instance by a user sending it over a network or carrying it on a removable medium such as a floppy disk, CD, or USB drive. Additionally, viruses can spread to other computers by infecting files on a network file system or a file system that is accessed by another computer. Kalmer Solutions can actively monitor our client’s PC’s and servers to verify that:

  • The PC or server has adequate virus protection.
  • The virus protection is up-to-date.
  • Critical updates are downloaded and applied to the PC, server, router, or firewall.

If a virus or security related issue is discovered, Kalmer Solutions can resolve the issue quickly from a remote location. This could significantly increase the up-time of a PC, server, or network.

24/7 Monitoring

Our Network Operations Center (NOC) is located in our corporate office in Jonesboro, Arkansas. From this location Kalmer Solutions establishes a secure connection into a Client’s network. At this point, we can monitor and manage their topology in real-time. We receive notifications regarding the health of a PC, server, router or firewall, and overall network stability. Our monitoring is done 24/7, 365 days a year.

Some advantages of real-time 24/7 monitoring include:

  • Immediate detection of threats or problems
  • Virus or intrusion prevention
  • Increased up-time
  • The ability to have documentation on network performance before and after business hours
  • An overall increase in network security
