Every business has different needs, especially where networks are concerned. Some businesses need to be able to view their surveillance cameras online. Some businesses have no interest in surveillance systems but need to allow mobile employees to connect to work from home or while on the road while others need to be able to connect their multiple physical locations back to their corporate networks. All of these situations require totally different technologies, network security settings and protocols than the next. A.N.S. offers a wide variety for network solutions giving you the flexibility to achieve your networking goals that are both seamless to your end users while offering maximum network security standards.

Access to computer resources via networks are an absolute necessity for any successful business in today’s world. But, there is always a tradeoff between network access and security. Even if you don’t think access is required it is. If your processing credit cards, you’re giving another company access to your internal network and that leaves you subject to PCI compliance regulations. While PCI is nearly always a factor, it’s only one of many aspects to consider.As a network security service provider, Advanced Network Solutions can offer sophisticated security practices for anything from data encryption to user permissions, ensuring data is secure and that the only the employees who need access to network resources have it.
I’ve seen people run in circles for hours without success, trying to diagnose why their new network is failing without success. Running cabling takes a LOT of patience. Pulling the cables can be a physically process, but that’s not the most tedious part. Even if you have 10 network devices to fun cables for, at 8 pinouts at each end of the cable including punch-down blocks, wall outlets and jumper cables at each end usually comes out to 480 pinouts. Cabling is a tedious, time consuming task with a single missed pin potentially leading to total network failure. Leave your cabling projects to A.N.S. and save yourself the headache.
Wireless networks from a security and speed standpoint are not always ideal for business environments but are often required for their added benefits of mobility and flexibility. They are also required for many devices such as tablets and smartphones. A.N.S. can ensure the best in wireless security solutions as well as optimal positioning of wireless access points, giving you wireless networking right where you need it.
You have either another location or employees on the go that need to connect to your network resources at the office. The only problem is the big scary internet stands between you and them. Virtual Private Networks (VPN’s) allowed them to connect to the office securely and anonymously from wherever they are (provided they have an internet connection). Talk to an A.N.S. network expert about all the benefits that VPN’s have to offer.
When setting budgets, technology infrastructure is often one of the last things considered and can many times be overlooked but that’s ok. Cloud computing allows you to leverage the hardware resources of a 3rd party provider on a monthly subscription basis without the upfront costs of buying your own hardware. While performance usually depends on your internet connection, this can often offer a viable solution to obtaining critical technologies without the upfront costs of building out those platforms yourself. Cloud Computing with A.N.S. is still to come.
Backups are a critical step in maintaining best practices in you IT infrastructure. It is also one of the most over looked practices in small businesses. This often leads to a devastating and time consuming process that can easily be avoided. Failure to implement a backup of digital data can lead to data loss that can take months to recover from even with a robust physical data archive policy in place. We have personally seen the effects of companies having employees manually re-input data into a computer system take years, without ever fully recovering all of those customer files. This is obviously a costly and time consuming procedure that can all be avoided with a data backup solution. A.N.S. offers unmatched data backup services.
