Network Design:

Depending on your size...home or business. OpenBox will design the most efficient network to meet your needs. Because there are so many different designs, we will sit down with you and explain your options to help you better understand how your network will flow.

 

Firewall / Security:

Private networks that are connected to the Internet can expose critical or confidential data to the world. End users connected to the Internet must be aware of these dangers, and protect their critical data and computer systems. Firewalls protect individual computers and business networks from hostile intrusion from the Internet. A backup solution, solid virus protection and a firewall are minimum necessities to ensure protection from disaster, hacking and virus threats.

 

Disaster Recovery:

Disasters can result from power outages, viruses, nature, and human error. This creates business disruptions. Without the ability to quickly resume everyday operations, you may have profit loss. Planning for problems before they arise will save time and money. Prevention is an implemented business continuity plan. Business continuity management ensures the survival of a company. Initial investment in IT resources may be difficult to manage, but it is a much better choice than the alternatives. Businesses should be prepared to protect their people, information, infrastructure and assets.
