Security Assessments

Every solution that we design and deploy must meet strict security requirements of our customers. With so many security breaches reported on a weekly basis now, enterprise solutions architecture has to be secure by design. We also provide security assessment services (which includes pen tests, Active Directory security reviews, network/firewall security reviews, and vulnerability scanning). In addition, we can assist with identity federation setup, WAP/ADFS, and multifactor authentication.

Project Management

When deploying Microsoft solutions, we use best practices from Microsoft Solutions Framework (MSF) and Microsoft Operations Framework (MOF). MSF and MOF in turn are loosely based on Prince2/PMBOK and are adapted for software development (MSF) and infrastructure (MOF) projects. MSF assumes an envisioning phase, a planning phase, a build phase, and a delivery phase, while MOF focuses on solution design/deployment and operations. We try to avoid project management for the sake of project management – we borrow only the key methodologies and tools to ensure project success with light-touch control and minimal overhead.

Cloud Services  - Private, Public, Hybrid and Offshore

For several years now cloud has been the key force in driving IT transformation. Enough is written about it and the concept in general is well understood. The cost savings that can be realized through deployment of hybrid or pure cloud infrastructures can be immense. But with cloud come several challenges, especially in the offshore regions – namely, security, data residency, connectivity and access. Customers who want to ensure that they benefit from this trend but in a way that will ensure the highest degree of privacy and security may want to look at our offshore cloud solutions (IaaS and SaaS).

Microsoft Azure and Office 365

We are really excited to offer assistance with deployment of and migration to Microsoft Azure and Office 365 cloud solutions. Customers who may not necessarily be bound by the strictest data confidentiality and residency commitments can realize substantial reduction of the total cost of ownership of IT infrastructure by moving their workloads to the Microsoft cloud. An additional benefit to our island-based customers, disaster recovery becomes much less of a concern when running workloads in the Microsoft cloud, however, due care must be given to network access design, to ensure redundant communication paths and maximum availability of data and services provided off-island.
