How Infrastructure solutions from a Remote Infrastructure Management service provider can decrease your problems

When a business faces downtime it can impact the output of the business in terms of business activity and its delivery with reduced ROI. Investing in a skilled workforce and technology will increase the expenses and the time to implement it on an organisational level. It is a major problem for any business because it is not letting them concentrate on their core business and is making them focus more on infrastructure. When an in-house technician resolves an issue, there remains the problem of no root cause analysis documentation to prevent it in the future and this creates confusion if the same problem arises. 

Increase ROI With Remote Infrastructure Management 

This is where a Remote Infrastructure Management (RIM) service provider can help in resolving the issue immediately with the expertise of a skilled workforce who can improve the time-to-market reach for the business along with a detailed root cause analysis documentation it prevents the same problems happening in the future. A RIM service provider can help resolve the issue remotely after the issue was raised, even if his/her troubleshooting methods doesn’t work the technician raises it to another one of a higher level to resolve it immediately. Which is not the case for Remote helpdesk as the time taken for a technician to reach on-premise is high and if the issue is not resolved with his domain knowledge it takes more time till it reaches the next level technician. This creates disruption in a business’s productivity and makes them worry more about infrastructure in the future than concentrating on delivery to the end-user.

 A RIM service provider through a global delivery model can improve infrastructure availability to the needs of a business without letting the business concentrate on it and increase its ROI. As a RIM service provider improves the uptime through ITIL compliant processes and SLA driven engagement to reduce incidents by constantly monitoring and managing the infrastructure remotely. It reduces the level of incidents considerably lower than what it was before and helps the business to concentrate on core business. Opsnoc Veeras

How does a security framework help to prevent, detect, thwart and mitigate cyber threats

With the unprecedented growth of Managed security services market and the growing acceptance of Security-as-a-service delivery offered by cloud based companies for enterprises and small and medium businesses alike to reduce OPEX and CAPEX related security. Managed security service providers (MSSPs) need to up their ante in addressing the growing threat and their advanced threat protection (ATP) services.

To do that we need to have a Structured Advanced Threat Protection Framework to provide organisations an answer to the new class of advanced targeted attacks. And since there is no all in one solution to assure Protection from a Sophisticated targeted attack, MSSPs should deploy several security technologies with an eye to provide a complete ATP solution. And since, all the range of security software’s available has its own set of strengths and weaknesses. MSSPs should deploy the software’s in such a way that one software’s weakness can be compensated using another software.


“Prevention is better than cure”:

The first step is to prevent the intrusion of threats in to the network by deployment of purpose built software’s like antivirus, antimalware’s and, to prevent known threats from entering the network. Then through network behaviour analysis we should flag traffic and any activity indicative of an attack in progress like malformed protocols, anomalous traffic associated with vulnerability exploit attempts, Fast flux activity and more. Then we should authenticate legitimate users with the help of authentication software’s and ensure endpoint security in Mobile and BYOD environments.

“You have to be vigilant about keeping your own fire alive.”  Tift Merritt

The second step is to monitor and detect the suspicious unknown code through IPS and IDS software’s. So, we can sandbox it to analyse by sending it through a network sniffing device to know if it is malicious or not. If its malicious then we can move on to mitigate it as the third step.

“I think malware is a significant threat because the mitigation, like antivirus software, hasn't evolved to a point to really mitigate the risk to a reasonable degree.”- Kevin Mitnick

Upon detecting a threat through the sandbox an alarm will be raised to SOC and its customer to take immediate mitigation to ensure the safety of resources and data. At the same time the response is taken for the improvement of gateway services for fixes and implementing it on all security layers and being delivered to different security enforcement points to update Antivirus and Intrusion prevention systems signatures and So, that the threat will be known in all levels and can prevent the threat in the future.

This complete framework’s flexibility in terms of all available options allows MSSP to tailor the best ATP service for each customer’s need.

Considerations inside cloud migration

Cloud Migration is a complicated and intricate process. There are few factors that needs to be considered when an organization is migrating to cloud.

Data Management:
Data management should be a priority when moving to cloud. Have an archival and DR strategy in place. Data frequently used by users that does not change should be near the user. This can be in the form of cache.

Cloud Consideration: 

Application Migration Approaches:
 We should promptly plan for application migration based on short and long term business goals.
  •         Virtualization:

                Virtualization facilitates quick and easy migration of cloud as no alteration is required.
  •         Application migration:

                  In this process application goes through a minimal architectural modification to make it optimal for cloud deployment.
  •          Application Refactoring:

                  This model requires major revamp of application right from the architecture to make use of the latest technology stack.

This is mainly done for platform compatibility issues.

  An organization may have their own application and want to retain it in their premises, they also want this application to communicate to the applications in the cloud. This could lead to performance issues if the applications are not properly integrated.

 The applications should have a cloud based license to be deployed effectively in the cloud.

Since your application/ Data will not be on premise and will be sharing space in the cloud provider’s data-center with other organization’s application there is a need to make sure that the applications are securely protected from threats.

Automation is one of the major advantages of cloud migration. Try to leverage automation as much as possible in your cloud infrastructure. This can enhance performance.

Network configuration
Communication between internal applications should not be through the internet to minimize costs and security risks. External communication can be through internet.

Vendor Lock In
Vendor lock in can happen with cloud providers as integration between different cloud providers is a difficult proposition. So when looking for a cloud provider it is best to compare all the features before choosing any particular cloud vendor.

Cloud Migration Specialists - Veeras Infotek

The IT landscape has just undergone a new paradigm shift. Today a business can only survive if it can be responsive and flexible so that it can change and adapt to the external environment. An organization’s IT should be able to facilitate this change and not hold it back.

Migrate Data into Cloud

Today’s business end users need to access organization data/application in different places, using different devices to be more productive and profitable for the business.  An effective IT system is the one which can deliver data when required, to the person who requires it, in the form required, all the while safeguarding it from external threats.

Data is the most crucial element of an organization. Loss of data cannot be tolerated. It may not only cause financial loss but even result in permanent termination of business. The role of IT is to make sure that data is not lost whatever may be the circumstances.

With these being the major priorities of most of the organizations, many of them are moving to cloud as it provides an effective means to meet these priorities.

Cloud computing has the ability to scale out and scale back according to demand, so that an organization has the required resource whenever it needs it

It provides the end user with the ability to access organization data / application anywhere, anytime using any device through the internet.

Companies do not need to spend extra for disaster recovery as the data is in the cloud provider’s storage and most of the cloud providers take care of disaster recovery of data.

However cloud migration is a very selective and unique process for each and every company, each cloud provider has their own set of advantages and disadvantages, competencies and ineptness. There are various types of cloud implementation models that can be implemented.  What flies for one organization will not work for another. Hence it is always better to hire a cloud migration specialists for migrating a company’s data from the on premise data centre to the
