We have many years of experience in infrastructure and security
IT infrastructure, in its purest form, means a collection of units that make up a coherent IT system – e.g. servers, networks, firewalls, and software, etc. If a company uses several different IT-related systems, these are included in the IT infrastructure. It is relevant to separate infrastructure in servers, networks, security, cloud, and outsourcing as individual areas.
Infrastructure typically includes several core concepts that are important to manage.
The network is the company’s “information highway”, which must ensure a secure and stable flow of data communication.
LAN is typically the internal connections between users’ PCs and, for example, in-house data centers as opposed to WAN, which connects the company to the outside world.
The level of threats in the world has exploded over the last 10 years and therefore security has to have its own focus.
Having a stable IT infrastructure is important and critical to your business, but how do you achieve it? We have described some customer cases examples of how we have increased operational stability and safety.
Examples of cases
Case example with experience in LAN / WAN network
TripleIT acts as an external sparring / project partner on the more complicated tasks related to LAN / WAN networks, firewalls, and VPN connections. We provide consulting and design within networks and firewalls and often participate in the implementation phase. An assignment is always completed with the preparation of documentation that is handed over to the customer so that the future operation is in good and capable hands.
What are LAN and WAN?
LAN is typically the internal connections between users’ PCs and, for example, in-house data centers as opposed to WAN connecting the company to the outside world.
Case examples with VPN
At several companies such as Metroservice and Roskilde Fireplace Center, we have set up VPN connections to, for example, connect branches or test locations with the headquarters. It has been important for the customers that secondary locations have access to the central IT resources located at headquarters and in some cases wanted internet traffic, also for secondary sites, to always be logged and secured behind the company’s primary firewall.
Virtual Private Network (VPN) – either in the form of client VPN (e.g. home / mobile workspace) or as site-2-site VPN, ensures an encrypted connection between 2 or more physical locations over the Internet. Encryption on the VPN connection ensures unauthorized access and eavesdropping, using complex encryption algorithms that meet today’s standards.
Case example with implementation and operation of 802.1x and Cisco ISE
Focusing on the security of the internal LAN, we have implemented 802.1x and Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE). The project involved replacement of all access switches to a type that supports 802.1x (the backbone speed was simultaneously upgraded from 1Gbps to 10Gbps). This means that only pre-approved PCs (certificate based) can access the resources of the internal networks.
What is 802.1x?
802.1x port-based network access control (PNAC) is an IEEE standard that secures the internal client network completely on the access port or in connection with wifi connection. It prevents foreign entities from accessing internal network resources, for example via a random “open” network connector in a meeting room, office or similar.
Case example with experience in Cisco Firewall
At Forca A/S, we ensure the daily operation of network infrastructure and Cisco firewalls. As it is a complex network with multiple locations and proprietary software and applications, it is important that the right competence is always present, which is why Forca has chosen to outsource the operation and development of all network infrastructure, both in terms of security, internal LAN and data center. Thus, we continuously handle all changes, including network redesign, firewall rules maintenance and VPN connections. with in-depth troubleshooting.
In addition, we assist with our knowledge regarding the regular external IT audit, which is to ensure quality and document all IT procedures in relation to, among other things. documentation of changes, change management, data security and audits in relation to firewall security.
We help our customers with the installation of Windows / Linux operating systems, ongoing maintenance such as updates and daily operations. Backup of our customers’ VPSs is always included and in addition, we provide remote backup of customer data and PCs.
