Optimise your infrastructure to deliver your full business potential

60%

According to Gartner, by 2023, over 60% of enterprises will deem networking as a core enabler to their digital strategies – up from less than 20% today.

The explosive growth of the cloud and software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications, in the collaboration or project management space, has changed the way companies operate and do business. Deploying software as a managed service delivered via the cloud means lower maintenance costs, increased uptime, faster feature rollout, and the reduced need for on-site hardware. Those are just some of the reasons why cloud-based SaaS solutions are making deep and fast inroads to tasks that were formerly dominated solely by in-house IT staff.

Data centres are the backbone of any organisation. Investing time and resources to maintain speed, keep maintenance costs down and continually deliver a superior user experience is becoming more crucial outside the office as well as inside the office.

We believe in getting the fundamentals and network essentials right and this takes repeated cyclical effort and skill in assessing all environments, business strategies and challenges prior to working on further application deployment or network changes.

According to Uptime Institute, half of all workloads will be run outside the enterprise data center by 2021, either in cloud and data centre infrastructures or at the network edge.

Nowcomm infrastructure security solutions are split into two components:

Data centre security / LAN security

Our Network Security Solutions

Firewalls and VPN

Network security is more than verifying connections, it is also about blocking or filtering suspicious traffic and continually monitoring for unexpected communications and behaviours. As your remote and flexible working patterns change it is important to keep this looking for new trends as well as identifying abnormalities to optimise and enhance your network and end user experiences. This can depend on each user, not just per department.

•  The data flow and visibility.
•  File share sites: growing in use, understanding the norm in your business
•  Who is connecting to whom: spotting normal behaviour versus the unusual
•  Categorisation of cloud apps: bring in cloud apps but making sure enterprise grade security is wrapped around it.

See our people security solutions for more information around protecting employees and the importance of creating a culture of security, and how to engage and bring them onboard with your security journey.

•  Advanced Malware Protection for endpoints to secure around your employee devices will prevent your network from being the victim of a cyberattacks. Find out more here.

Identity Management

Identity management is also known as identity and access management. It is a framework of policies and technologies that ensure the right people have the correct, appropriate access to technology resources from identified locations. IdM systems fall under the overarching umbrellas of IT security and data management.

Managing identity across an ever-widening array of software services and other network boundaries has become one of the most challenging aspects of the IT profession. Find out more about the Nowcomm Identity management solutions.

Data management and automation

DNA Centre from Nowcomm: Monitor, Troubleshoot and optimise your enterprise network.

Let the DNA centre orchestrate your network configuration and security posture. Centralising manual feeds is becoming paramount. Advanced artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), reduces mundane, complex manual tasks and allows technology to automate and optimise your network. Setting policies around data accessibility and flow ensures maximum productivity and zero downtime.

“Identity information may be sourced from multiple repositories, requiring a system to not only manage identities in different systems but also be able to synchronize information between these systems, and provide a single source of truth when required. That is especially important now that the Internet of Things is accelerating. An ever-broader array of IoT devices means not only more traffic, but also more requests for authorised access in both directions. That is the reason that identity and security has become one of the key growth factors in IoT over the last few years”

Luke Hudson, Network Security expert at Nowcomm

Wrapped around all your security is the need to prevent attacks coming into the network, what to do during and how to manage post attack. Nowcomm have a seen a huge shift in perception since 2018, of organisation uptake of AMP to prevent attack, and understanding the costly exercise of correcting network vulnerabilities post attack.

Point-in-time detection protects across the entire attack continuum. Designed for Cisco FirePOWER network security appliances, it provides visibility and control to protect against highly sophisticated, targeted, zero-day, and persistent advanced malware threats.

Software-defined networking in a wide area network simplifies the management and operation of a WAN by decoupling the networking hardware from its control mechanism. This virtual WAN architecture allows enterprises to leverage any combination of network transport services – including MPLS, LTE and broadband internet services – to securely connect users to their applications. Unlike MPLS, SD-WAN is cloud networking and so comes with no bandwidth penalties.

Every network is unique and providing context to user behaviour and network activity is key to assessing risk. StealthWatch by Nowcomm plugs in to your network layer and collects telemetry from every part of the network. By applying advanced security analytics to the data, it creates a baseline of normal web and network activity for a network host or administrator and applies context-aware analysis to automatically detect anomalous behaviours.
