Networking and Servers
The most valuable part of any network is the information stored on it or running through it. Unfortunately, this information is also the most vulnerable part of your network.
Computer Viruses, Worms, Trojans, people who "hack" into computer systems, hardware failures, major or even minor disasters, disgruntled employees, human error, and software issues are just a few examples of the ways that your information may be at risk.
So, where do you start? Cover the obvious? Get a Firewall and a desktop Anti-Virus solution? What happens if a water pipe leaks over your network file server?
River Windscomputing can address all of these issues. We will help you identify the vulnerabilities that can affect your business information and design the most effective solutions to protect this vital resource.
In addition to working with the leading solution vendors in the industry to protect your computers and networks, River Winds Computing will help you design the appropriate best practices, policies and procedures that you will need in order to account for the "human factor".

Virtual Private Networks (VPN)
VPN’s are the most secure way to share information is to only allow specific people access to your private local network. Businesses with more than one location or businesses that want to allow remote employees, partners or specific customers to access information on their local network could all benefit from a VPN solution.
Because a VPN is used to provide security over an otherwise unsecured medium, the technology is always coupled with some form of Firewall. Even pure VPN devices should include a basic Firewall that will specifically deny all other types of communication access.
Web based Email and Schedules
For many businesses the most critical function that their employees need is regular access to their E-Mail, calendars, contacts, etc. When an employee is on the road or out of the office for any reason they could still maintain a level of productivity if they could access these features.
