A typical IT strategy will provide a road map for how IT will be implemented throughout your business and should be based on the system requirements you have defined.

Networking & Infrastructure

Networking & Infrastructure

Secure home and business networks are fundamental to your daily activities.   Whether you want to browse the web, communicate across several locations or connect to a work place through VPN, Security is paramount.

Security is a very difficult topic. Everyone has a different idea of what 'security' is, and what levels of risk are acceptable. The key for building a secure network is to define what security means to your organisation. Once that has been defined, everything that goes on with the network can be evaluated with respect to that policy. Projects and systems can then be broken down into their components, and it becomes much simpler to decide whether what is proposed will conflict with your security policies and practices.

Many people pay great amounts of lip service to security, but do not want to be bothered with it when it gets in their way. It's important to build systems and networks in such a way that the user is not constantly reminded of the security system around him. Users who find security policies and systems too restrictive will find ways around them. It's important to get their feedback to understand what can be improved, and it's important to let them know whywhat's been done has been, the sorts of risks that are deemed unacceptable, and what has been done to minimize the organization's exposure to them.

Security is everybody's business, and only with everyone's cooperation, an intelligent policy, and consistent practices, will it be achievable.

Virtual Private Networks

Given the ubiquity of the Internet, and the considerable expense in private leased lines, many organisations have been building VPNs(Virtual Private Networks). Traditionally, for an organisation to provide connectivity between a main office and a satellite one, an expensive data line had to be leased in order to provide direct connectivity between the two offices. Now, a solution that is often more economical is to provide both offices connectivity to the Internet. Then, using the Internet as the medium, the two offices can communicate.

The danger in doing this, of course, is that there is no privacy on this channel, and it's difficult to provide the other office access to 'internal' resources without providing those resources to everyone on the Internet.

VPNs provide the ability for two offices to communicate with each other in such a way that it looks like they're directly connected over a private leased line. The session between them, although going over the Internet, is private (because the link is encrypted), and the link is convenient, because each can see each others' internal resources without showing them off to the entire world.

A number of firewall vendors are including the ability to build VPNs in their offerings, either directly with their base product, or as an add-on. If you have need to connect several offices together, this might very well be the best way to do it.
