Managed Services Amplify Network Services and Overlay Technologies
When a technology solution is managed, all or a substantial portion of the usual work involved in the solution is handled by an expert service provider. Regardless of the type of managed solution, leveraging expertise offers cost savings, scalability, and a reduced technical workload for your employees. As part of the Communications Stack, NHC offers managed services for the WAN, voice, firewall, and security.
Imagine if your network devices were all truly plug and play. Users would be able to just power up and float out on the network – with all policies automatically configured and easily managed from a distance – and you’d have WAN redundancies in place so they remain connected to their critical resources. Well, dream no more because this ease-of-use just scratches the surface of what NHC’s Managed WAN via SD-WAN can accomplish.
SD-WAN allows for robust network controlling, helping organizations prioritize mission critical traffic, resulting in better network performance. While SD-WAN once was a DIY-only choice, more businesses are choosing a managed approach. Managed SD-WAN helps your customers tap into all of the benefits of SD-WAN, without the headache associated with managing, maintaining, and supporting their network. End customers are kept up to date in real-time via communications from NHC Ops, as well as through our customer portal.
What would a Communications Stack be without voice? It’d be quiet – but disconnected – which is the opposite of what businesses need. Even in the age of increased mobility and collaboration, connecting via voice is still at the core of employee and customer communication. And what good is a toolbox full of ways to communicate if none of the tools play well together?
This is the value of managed voice — modern communications without hassles. With managed voice, businesses can easily plug into a scalable, flexible, and full-featured voice solution. Managed voice can reduce costs and provide more functionality.
NHC’s Managed Services are the special sauce of IT, the cherry on top of the sundae, or whatever other goodies your customers need from their network technology. You have the best network access and a robust layer of overlay services, now use these tools.
Someone always forgets to lock the front door. Don’t be that person. Monitoring and threat detection are growing in importance in today’s cyber security strategy, but there is still a need for protecting the perimeter.
With managed firewall services as part of the Communication Stack, businesses can take advantage of tailored network traffic protection without the expense and maintenance hassle of managing a firewall in-house.
Firewall management requires expertise and hands-on administration, and many businesses lack these resources. With managed firewall as part of the Communications Stack, your customers can achieve a high degree of protection with a low amount of direct involvement.
Connectivity is only valuable if it’s secure, and increased use of cloud services and new threats can make handling network security in-house a losing battle. With managed security, businesses get cyber security monitoring and management, incorporating advanced threat detection, and other tools to provide expertise and continuous protection.
Even businesses with the best in-house cyber security talent may lack the resources to fully protect their networks every minute of every day. That’s where managed security steps in as a part of the Communications Stack and picks up the slack.
Bottom line: security is a big deal, but you shouldn’t have to lose sleep over protecting your business.
