Hybrid clouds and local area networks require a multi-layer, unified approach for optimum security and performance. Epic-Cloud Connect is your way to make it happen.
Living in a connected world means you can’t leave your network on auto-pilot any longer. The opportunities presented by the Cloud also bring new risks and performance requirements. Hybrid networks that combine the local network with cloud resources are the new normal. Speed and security matter more than ever and it takes active management to achieve the best results. Epic-Cloud Connect is a suite of network management services that work together to maximize your performance and security.
Protect Your Local Area Network (LAN)
Controlling LAN access is the first step in effective network performance and security.
Only approved devices should have access to the most trusted part of your LAN. Our Managed Switch and Wi-Fi solutions control physical access by dividing the network into “trusted” and “untrusted” segments.
Known devices connect on the trusted side where they receive the best performance. Unknown devices are either denied access or are routed to a guest network with less resources. With either solution, we provide the hardware, monitoring, and ongoing management to maintain the approved device list.
Optimize Your Internet Connection
The Internet is now mission critical and needs to be properly managed and secured.
When you move to the Cloud, you become dependent on your Internet connection. That bandwidth must be monitored, “shaped” and prioritized so that something like a YouTube video doesn’t interfere with your important work. You also need continuous protection against an ever growing population of potential intruders.
Our Managed Firewall improves your security and Internet performance with active monitoring and policy management. We include the hardware, maintenance, log monitoring, and response to security and device events.
Bridge Your LAN to the Cloud
Establish a secure, managed connection between your LAN and Epic-Cloud to create one unified network.
Our Site-to-Site VPN service creates a secure, encrypted bridge between your firewall and ours. This makes your Epic-Cloud Server, Storage, and WorkSpace solutions accessible to anyone on your local network just like any other network service.
Connect From Anywhere
Looking for better work/life balance? Access Epic-Cloud from anywhere at any time.
Most Epic-Cloud services (like WorkSpace) are directly accessible from the Internet. However, if you need secure, on-the-go access to your Epic-Cloud Server, we also offer a user-based SSL VPN connection. Once connected, it’s just like being on the local network.
