Don’t fall victim: 2 Common Mistakes Network Providers Make

Exactly how secure is your critical business data on your open network?

Unfortunately, the answer to that is – not as safe as you think. If it’s not at the forefront of your thoughts, it should be. Don’t be a victim, be a problem solver.

Public vs Private

On the one hand, the Internet is a place where people can publicly gather to communicate their likes and dislikes with one another as well as use its tools to operate their day-to-day business affairs. On the other hand, its depth can lead you to a massive pit of headaches. Whether your IT pain stems from securing your company’s network from malicious attacks, phishing or cyber scams don’t matter – they’re impossible to avoid.

Two common mistakes that network providers make are using Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) or by deploying Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLs) devices that traverse over the public Internet.

The good news is that you can successfully defend your critical information. In fact, as I am sure you’re well aware already, there are multitudes of ways. Aside from various software and backups plans available, a private network is just another added step to securing your data successfully.

Today, a select few of providers are ensuring their customer’s privacy using a blended Internet approach that has Layer-2 and Layer-3 network technologies. This revolutionary technology design offers customers multiple and dynamic streams of data through a single pipe, enabling superior performance and value from bandwidth intensive services like:

  • Voice
  • Data
  • Web services
  • Video
  • Backups

Your critical data to remote office locations can be secured as well. To learn more about how you can improve your site-to-site connectivity, CLICK HERE.
