Opting for cloud hosing allows you to get up and running quickly with no up-front costs and on an easy to budget pricing structure. Cloud hosting also provides many other benefits over traditional on-premise systems, like: flexibility, scalability, physical security, redundant power and high availability to name a few.
The 4G mobile network is a popular alternative to slow ISDN, DSL or wireless connections for consumers. 4G networks are also a highly effective backup solution for your corporate connectivity issues. By incorporating a 4G backup connection into your network, you can keep your business up and running even if your primary connection drops.
Benefits of 4G
- Actual broadband speeds: 4G provides higher bandwidth (data speeds) of up to 300Mbps download and 50Mbps upload with the latest 4G modems, compared to the 3G network.
- Improved network responsiveness: due to low latency and lower idle-to-active times.
- High spectrum efficiency: which provides a higher network capacity, improved cost-efficiency
- Backwards compatibility: to future-proof your network.
- All IP networks: so integration is more straightforward and cost efficiency is improved.
Enhanced security measures: to protect your business and provide a superior quality of service.
Benefits to having a secured WIFI connection:
- Stop others from stealing bandwidth - if your unsecured enterprise-grade internet access becomes known to pirates or hackers, with the right equipment, a single pirate downloading movies, software, and music can severely degrade your network’s performance.
- Prevents liability from the actions of others - cybercriminals specifically look for unsecured enterprise networks on which to perform their dirty work. They have ways of Masking their computer’s forensic signature, so when the authorities’ investigation of any crime committed leads to your organisation’s IP address.
- Protects network resources - criminals could target your network therefore a secure wireless network is a critical component of any strategy to keep your organisation’s valuable intellectual property protected.
Virtual Private Network
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is an app that keeps your internet connection private. VPNs protect you by creating an encrypted “tunnel” that all of your device’s data travels through on its way to the Internet. Encryption turns words and data, like text files, into a secret code.
VPN software can be installed on most popular devices, like your phone, laptop and desktop. One important thing to remember is a VPN provider isn’t the same as an Internet Service Provider (ISP). You will still need an ISP to connect to the Internet, your VPN runs on top of that connection.
