See where your network infrastructure aligns with a thorough analysis from Virtual-Q.
You’ve been working around the clock to grow your business, and your hard work has finally paid off. You’re ready to expand into a new market. However, one thing is holding you back: your technology. Applications take forever to load, your servers are outdated, and your security measures leave you exposed to cyberthreats. You need a technology overhaul to grow, and an infrastructure analysis from Virtual-Q is the best place to start.
Your network infrastructure is the web of hardware, software, and services that lets you use your business technology. When you log in to your work laptop, connect to the internet, open a browser, or launch an application, your infrastructure sits in the background, making all of it possible. When your infrastructure works, you don’t have to think much about it.
Network infrastructure issues often become apparent when your business grows. As more employees run applications on your network, this extra usage can strain your infrastructure and lead to security and performance issues. It can be challenging to pinpoint what’s wrong until a third-party IT provider takes a deep dive into your infrastructure.
During a network infrastructure analysis, your IT provider assesses the various components of your network to see how well they work together. They then compile an assessment report with recommendations for new security measures, updated hardware, and any additional network components you need to optimize your infrastructure.
Your infrastructure is the foundation of your network. If it does not support your systems, you could face an IT disaster. See where your foundation stands by scheduling your infrastructure audit today.
At Virtual-Q, our goal is to free you from IT restrictions. During our infrastructure assessment, we look at two aspects of your network to see what’s holding you back: security and performance.
A cyberattack can unravel your infrastructure in minutes, which is why cybersecurity is an essential part of your network. During our network security audit, we use different methods to see if your infrastructure is vulnerable to a security breach. Our team first conducts a penetration test to see how easily a cybercriminal could get into your system. We then see how well your data and file security systems perform.
If you spend more time waiting for your applications to load than actually using them, you need an infrastructure overhaul. To determine the cause of performance issues, we look at every hardware component and software system used. We then recommend solutions, such as moving your infrastructure to the cloud, investing in a subscription-based infrastructure as a service (IaaS) model, or replacing outdated equipment.
A network security assessment can uncover problems you never would have known to look for, but only if it’s done correctly. At Virtual-Q, we follow a standard process for every client to ensure everything is covered. We help you check the following items off your network assessment checklist:
- Assessing your network devices: Your hardware may have been perfect for your business when you bought it five years ago, but it could be holding you back today. We recommend necessary upgrades and help you prepare your infrastructure for a move to the cloud.
- Identifying security vulnerabilities: Keeping your network secure is an integral part of your company’s risk management strategy. Our vulnerability assessment helps you determine the areas of your security strategy that need immediate attention.
- Determining bandwidth capacity: Companies that want to grow or switch to cloud-based Q Desktops may require additional bandwidth. Our team members see if your current infrastructure can withstand your planned changes.
- Find cost-saving opportunities: Ultimately, we want you to get the most out of your technology as economically as possible. After our assessment, we recommend cost-saving measures like switching to Q Fabric, our cloud-based infrastructure.
Once we complete your assessment, we help you bring your infrastructure up to speed by introducing you to the Q Fabric. With our cloud-based infrastructure solution, you don’t have to worry about how your technology will handle your business growth. We’ll customize our Q Fabric infrastructure to address your company’s needs, and we can easily scale your technology to fit your business. Plus, we charge you a flat fee per month, which means you always know what your bill will be.
Your business can’t grow if your network is outdated. Schedule your Virtual-Q infrastructure audit today to prepare your technology for the future.
