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.
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
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.
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
