Like the vast majority of our customers, IT is probably not your core business. Trying to solve all of your IT challenges internally can become a major distraction, and other aspects of your business can suffer. More often than not these challenges end up costing way in excess of your initial expectations.

If you need help with a special project involving your IT assets and/or consulting, we're eager to assist you. We are an expert, affordable IT consulting firm providing advisory and managerial services that will meet any of your short, or long-term IT objectives.

Why us? We have over 5 years of experience helping thousands of customers address a wide range of issues and projects, such as network security, disaster recovery planning (DRP), business continuity planning (BCP), technology compliance issues, IT staffing, technology recommendations, communications and carrier services, video conferencing and phone systems and much more.

Here is a partial list of the IT consulting services that we offer:

Is your IT working for you, or against you?

Chances are, your IT environment has developed gradually. Over time, problems can emerge: performance gaps, redundancies, inefficiencies and unintended information silos take form. It can be very difficult, however, to see what is and isn’t working. Without this perspective it’s difficult to know where to invest your limited IT resources. 

Dataprise has developed a comprehensive, no-nonsense tool we call our Information Technology Assessment (ITA). We conduct a thorough, in-depth review of all of your critical technology areas, evaluate them against best practices and provide you with a road map to better leverage your IT as a competitive advantage.

Knowing Your Score Helps You Invest More Wisely

The Dataprise ITA employs a unique scoring system called the Dataprise Network Health Index, an easy to understand metric that measures each critical IT function. The Index makes it simple to identify your IT strengths and weaknesses. ITA analyzes an expansive range of IT functional areas, including:

  • Technology Management: planning, support and documentation
  • Network Topology: design, cable plant and Internet connectivity
  • Network Security: firewall, perimeter, physical and wireless security
  • Server Infrastructure: hardware, operating systems and storage
  • Network Services: directory services, administrative policies, remote access and redundancy
  • Network Applications: communication, collaboration and financial management
  • Cloud Services
  • PC Fleet

After we’ve completed our review, we’ll present you with a detailed ITA report that presents the current state of your technology, and offers detailed recommendations for areas requiring improvement, ranked by priority. 

Each ITA is a unique and concentrated effort that includes an on-site consultation and data collection, the report itself (comprising your specific Network Health Index, analyzes, best practices, recommendations and budgetary information) and a full in-person presentation.

It’s not how much network security you can afford. It’s how much network insecurity could cost you.

If your network isn’t correctly configured, it could be vulnerable to hackers, identity thieves and other threats. That’s bad news for your business … and your customers. On top of this, the legal penalties for a security breach (that could have been prevented) are colossal, and the powers that be are typically unforgiving.

At Dataprise, we use state-of-the-art security techniques to keep the ‘bad guys’ out, while providing authorized personnel access to important files and applications.

Every organization’s needs are different and hackers are always adapting their techniques, so we are extremely serious about staying up to date with the latest network security tools, threats and industry developments. 

We’ll put a comprehensive security plan in place and recommend the right technology tools and services to safeguard your network, including:

  • IT Security Consulting: from firewall installation to intrusion detection services, our certified consultants will ensure your network resources are safe.
  • Dataprise Network Security Assessment: We’ll conduct an affordable but very sophisticated on-site analysis of your network’s vulnerability to hackers, viruses and other threats. Our report will include findings on any discovered security vulnerabilities, risks and implications, and recommendations for technical solutions, specific software, tools and implementation steps.
  • Virtual Private Network (VPN): our security experts will create and install secure-access Internet and network connections for your branch offices, traveling staff and telecommuters.
  • Firewall Installation: we will install and configure a secure SonicWALL or Cisco firewall to create a secure barrier between your organization’s network and the Internet.
  • Managed Security Service: for the highest level of security, we can provide proactive, continuous monitoring of your network’s firewall devices

And lot more......
