IT Technologies; Power Your Business Matters

IT Technologies can be complicated, knowing the difference between a gateway, AP, router, and other equipment. Getting the right service and speed from your ISP as not to user serve your needs and not to overpay. Setting up the internet for your business can be complicated. We can help simplify it with the right tools.

Secure Business Networking

Are you looking to set up a secure local area network for your business, including a segregated guest network if desired? Vontainment can help you with affordable ransomware-proof backup systems to keep your data safe. With the increasing reliance on the internet, it is important to have secure IT technologies in place.

According to a recent McAfee survey, 60% of cybercrimes are targeted at small businesses. The survey also found that less than 50% of small businesses have email or internet security, highlighting significant gaps in cybersecurity. Protect your business files, your customers’ financial information, and your reputation by investing in the right network security. Proper cybersecurity not only protects your company data but also your business’s reputation and customer loyalty.

If you have ever experienced a data disaster, such as accidentally deleting a file or a server crash, you know how important a reliable backup and disaster recovery plan is. Protect your trade secrets, confidential communication, customer information, and HR records by considering a cost-effective suite of IT security procedures and solutions. The long-term benefits of avoiding an incident far outweigh the headache it would cause.

Regular maintenance is essential for ensuring that your systems run properly and securely. With the right IT processes, you can predict and plan for problems before they become urgent. As Benjamin Franklin said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Avoid costly and time-consuming emergencies by getting ahead of issues and resolving them before they arise.

The New Generation of VPN Wiregard

Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) create an encrypted tunnel between your device and a secure server to send your traffic through. The protocol used to create this tunnel, called WireGuard, is just one of several options available. WireGuard stands out with its smaller codebase, currently around 3,800 lines, making it easier to test and secure. It also offers better performance and can be used on a variety of devices, from smartphones to backbone routers. At Vontainment, we have found that using WireGuard does not significantly affect connection speed. We can easily set up and include WireGuard in your business’s IT technologies roster, with an easy-to-use web GUI to manage users and devices. Deploy your VPN in-house or on the cloud with ease.

Next-Generation Firewalls and Web Apps

Our team is skilled in setting up secure cloud infrastructure and apps. Despite the misconception that small businesses in Port Charlotte and Fort Myers are safe from hackers, convenience is often the main reason for attacks. This is why it is important to have strong IT technologies in place to protect your business.

One way to secure your network is through the use of a Unified Threat Management Device, also known as a gateway server. Workstations can be converted to low cost servers. While UTM appliances may be more aesthetically pleasing, they can become obsolete and pose a security risk after just two years. Converted workstations, on the other hand, have more powerful and upgradable components, and can last up to ten years.

Backup Solutions And Quick Recovery

Ensure fast recovery in the event of data loss with our backup solutions. We offer local and remote backup systems, including full image backups which create a compressed copy of the hard drive state. These can be restored over the network for quick access deleted files. Save time and money on IT technologies by avoiding the need to reconfigure devices with our efficient backup solutions.

Better Faster Internet

If you’re experiencing slow internet or frequent connection issues, it may be due to inadequate network infrastructure. WiFi can be affected by hardware, distance to the router, and objects in the environment. Additionally, all connected devices take turns sending and receiving data, which can affect real-time communication. Updating your network infrastructure can optimize your internet speed and reliability. We can investigate your IT technologies to identify any weak points or outdated technology, and suggest affordable solutions such as mesh WiFi routers and hardwiring data-heavy devices. Network equipment costs have significantly decreased in recent years, making updates more accessible.
