Key Benefits and Features of Firewall/Security

How safe is your network?

At WCA, we know that security is vital; your business depends upon your network. Is your network safe from outside intruders, hackers, and viruses? Is the information you store about your customers on your network safe from theft?

It is important for you to obtain a clear understanding of your current security stance. At WCA, we can help by performing a Network Security Analysis which allows you to meet the principle security requirements of confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information.

Initially, the WCA Security Consultant will:

  • Review current assets, policies, and infrastructure
  • Submit questionnaires to key stakeholders
  • Identify the current security maturity level
  • Develop an analysis of the application of Security Best Practices

Next, the WCA Security Consultant will:

  • Perform interviews of key stakeholders to determine security stance
  • Measure current security safeguards against industry best practices
  • Review current policies, standards, procedures, and guideless for comparison to Security Best Practices
  • Review any previous risk assessments and remediation efforts
  • Review current deference to internal and external compliance issues
  • Produce and present an Executive Report identifying the results of the review to include:
  • A Score Card on information security and the internal maturity level
  • Observations of security issues where weakness was found and discussion of potential improvements
  • Results of the questionnaire for reference
  • Recommendations for change to meet Security Best Practices

IT Assessments

Key Benefits and Features of IT Assessments

Whalley Computer Associates offers many assessment services that can help improve your company’s overall IT success. Our server assessments offer capacity planning for consolidation and virtualization projects. Storage assessments can be done to evaluate capacity, performance, and the requirements for implementing storage area networks. WCA offers assessments in the following areas:

  • Server and Storage Consolidation
  • VMware Best Practices
  • Wireless Pre and Post Deployment Active Surveys
  • IT Health Checks

With VMware assessments, WCA is able to evaluate your existing virtual environment and provide feedback regarding how it meets best practices, and provide other detailed documentation. WCA has made significant investments in both resources and tools that allow us perform active wireless RF surveys. We also perform post deployment active surveys as a validation that the systems meet the client’s expectations. The WCA IT health checks offer infrastructure asset reports, high level virtualization opportunities, and server inventory, as well as provide performance and reliability checks on approximately 20 different system metrics.

The WCA team can help you establish a strategic IT plan for your organization with this service.

Identity Management

Smartphones, tablets, and the Internet of Thing (IoT) devices are pouring into the workplace to join laptops and desktops. With every employee now utilizing an average of three devices, the addition of IoT increases the vulnerabilities inside the business. This adds to the operation burden of the IT staff.

Identifying who and what connects to the network is the first step to securing your enterprise. Control through the automated application of wired and wireless policy enforcement ensures that only authorized and authenticated users and devices are allowed to connect. At the same time, real-time attack response and threat protection is required to secure and meet audit requirements (both internal and external).
