Our Managed Services
A solid network is the foundation of all IT functions. INVITE starts at the beginning with a design that is proven to be secure, scalable, and reliable. This enables us to work with your business to enable advanced functionality instead of reacting to issues. We turn your network into an essential asset to be leverage instead of a liability to be mitigated.
What does a solid network look like? It used to be that connectivity was enough. Now, it’s not only that users can connect, but that every application is accessed securely and performs optimally. Even the smallest issue can impact the user experience. Our suite of network tools provide visibility into the user experience to ensure peak efficiency of your network.
The old mindset was that security and usability were fundamentally at odds, an increase in one meant a decrease in the other. While there is a sliver of truth to that mindset, INVITE provides many ways to maintain usability while ensuring a high level of security. INVITE’s focus on security allows you to check all the boxes for any audit, assessment, or validation requirements.
Is your network receiving the right amount of oversight? One security breach can wipe out valuable data, resulting in massive consequences. With the growing remote and hybrid workforce, threats are becoming more frequent and damaging to your business. Now more than ever businesses are turning to strategic partners to help them fill the gaps where IT teams are increasingly stretched thin. Our cybersecurity team looks holistically at your network, uncovering attack vectors, providing recommendations and implementing remediations that suit your business.
There are a growing number of devices that require network access. Business are finding it difficult to know who is using them, what they are, and why they’re being used. INVITE solves this by providing identification and visibility into network connected devices. This allows you to group your devices and apply holistic security policies.
Threats come from every angle, most often the largest vulnerabilities are from your own users. Traditional network designs defaulted to the “moat and drawbridge” approach – once you were inside the walls of the castle you had access to everything. INVITE’s philosophy is to secure the network with an approach that classifies devices, identities, applications, and resources with strong authentication methods that remove implicit trust. Attempts to exploit vulnerabilities will still occur, but with ZTA you will have better visibility and prevent lateral propagation of threat actors.
Cloud connectivity options (including public internet, VPNs, private peering, and SD-WAN) enable business functions in unique ways. They not only improve accessibility for employees and affordably scale with your business, but also bring unique complexity and security challenges. Whether your business needs assistance managing your existing cloud environment, or is looking for expertise to transition to the cloud, INVITE can help. We securely implement and maintain your connectivity so your information is protected and working efficiently 24/7.
What does a solid network look like? It used to be that connectivity was enough. Now, it’s not only that users can connect, but that every application is accessed securely and performs optimally. Even the smallest issue can impact the user experience. Our suite of network tools provide the ability to identify issues in an environment where many of the underlying details are hidden from view.
While many service providers approach managed solutions from a “we own the whole solution” perspective, INVITE works with you to determine the solution that best fits your business needs. We see ourselves as an extension of your team. We provide expertise and best practices and will train, assist, and collaborate with your team. We also monitor, troubleshoot, and resolve issues on behalf of your team.
In today’s dynamic work environment, work from home and hybrid work are often the norm rather than the exception. These varied environments require a new approach to enable and secure your business assets. The measures previously used to protect at the organizational level are now being re-worked to operate at the individual user, device, and account level. If your business needs assistance managing your endpoint infrastructure, INVITE can help. We securely implement and maintain your endpoints, so your assets are protected and working efficiently 24/7.
The best way to ensure that your data Is fully protected is through comprehensive security solutions with managed endpoint detection and response. Our IT experts and cutting-edge technology look after your assets, blocking any potential threats and implementing solutions that lower your security risk.
Defense In Depth is a practice that involves implementing multiple layers to protect valuable assets. When one measure fails, and no defense is perfect, another steps up to thwart the attack. INVITE continuously evaluates the threats that present the biggest risk to your business and protects against the greatest threats in multiple ways. Each added layer makes it less likely that an issue will result in the loss of critical assets. Our goal is to protect your business assets such that the effort required to compromise them is far greater than any potential reward.
