Computer Network

computer network is a set of computers connected together for the purpose of sharing resources. The most common resource shared today is connection to the internet. Other shared resources can include a printer or a file server.

Retail and IT Consulting will provide a comprehensive assessment of your existing network to determine which areas are vulnerable to outside threats.  We will measure your health against network best practices including existing network security policy, wireless intrusion detection, wireless intrusion prevention, and network segmentation. We will examine and understand the Architecture, Policies and Procedures and Prevention measures in your existing network.  We will interview select individuals from your business, review existing documentation, and use assessment tools to discover what you are currently working with.  Contact us for your network security health check.
