Internet, cutting-edge firewall technology and Dell PowerEdge servers. Our data
center is secure and climate controlled. We also offer competitive co-location
services for those who already have purchased severs and are looking for a
reliable hosting facility.
Running a firewall effectively
is rarely easy. Setting and maintaining the rules, interpreting and reacting
appropriately to the logs, keeping software up-to-date - all these tasks require
time and skills that are often in short supply. If you cannot deliver, your
network security is in danger. ECMG's Managed
Firewall Service provides your company with outside security experts to remotely
manage your firewalls and watch your network perimeter 24x7 as well as ongoing advice and guidance on security related
issues. This ensures protection of your
business-critical data while reducing the burden on your in-house network
support team. Our security engineers will manage
your firewall remotely with a response to all change requests guaranteed within
one working day.
Simple Mail Transfer
Protocol / Post Office Protocol 3 (SMTP/POP3)
If you are looking for an alternative to collecting your mail from
your ISP but would prefer to avoid the complexities of running your own Internet
mail server, a managed email service can be an attractive option. ECMG will
provide a mail server, installed on your network, to send and receive your mail
and will manage the server remotely over the Internet using real time secure
encryption. Additional services include mail aliasing, mail blocking to reduce
spamming and security log maintenance.
Virtual Private Network (VPN)
VPNs provide a cost
effective way for companies to communicate securely with their branch offices
and remote or mobile users using the Internet instead of dedicated leased lines.
However, the installation and management of VPNs is not always as easy as
suppliers might have you think. With ECMG's managed VPN service you don't need
to worry about the potential complexities of implementing and running your VPN.
We will discuss your needs, configure and install all necessary equipment and
manage your VPN solution remotely once installed.
As with our managed firewall service, we guarantee a response
to all change requests within one working day and full monitoring, exception and
monthly reporting, software updates and ongoing advice are standard features of
IDS is often complicated and
confusing to setup and understand for the average desktop user. Let our network
engineers take the burden off your IT staff designing and implementing the
proper IDS solution for your company's needs. A properly configured IDS will
monitor your company's network traffic 24x7 and alerts you to potential attacks
based on the specifics of your unique network environment.
Domain Name System (DNS)
Our network engineers have considerable experience in DNS
administration and can deliver the benefits of DNS to you cost effectively
through our managed DNS service. We will supply DNS servers, either housed and
managed by ECMG or installed at your premises and managed remotely. We guarantee
to respond to all change requests within one working day of receipt and, as you
would expect, we operate a strict security policy to ensure that changes are
actioned only when requested by an authorised individual. At installation we
will carry out all data conversion, management and loading to the server to
establish the DNS. For maximum security your DNS software will be maintained at
the latest stable version and off-site backups of your data will be maintained
at all times.
Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
Dynamic Host Configuration
Protocol (DHCP) allows PCs on a network to obtain their IP addresses
automatically from a DHCP server rather than requiring the IP address to be set
manually for each PC. Aside from the obvious administrative advantage conferred,
DHCP offers other benefits such as the conservation of IP addresses.
However, managing your DHCP server well requires time and
expertise and a managed service may well provide a better solution. As an ECMG
managed DHCP service subscriber you will be provided with a server to place on
your network. This server will perform all the necessary functions of DHCP and
will be configured, installed and managed by ECMG. ECMG's management includes
the addition of networks to the server, adding or amending configuration
details, providing monthly reports and maintaining software versions. ECMG
guarantees to respond to all change requests within one working day.
