- Cyber Security: CGNET carries out penetration testing and monitoring of client resources to detect advanced persistent threats. These can be done on a one-time or ongoing basis. We also develop plans with clients to help them conform to ISO 27001/2 standards.
- IT Management and Staffing: CGNET provides management and staffing to organizations worldwide. We host client’s assets in two Tier III data centers with geographic separation, or we can manage resources in place on the organization’s premises. In several locations, we also completely manage the organization’s IT on an outsourced basis.
- Strategic Consulting: We undertake short term and long term consulting projects. We also provide IT assessments of our client’s capabilities and needs. An overall IT assessment will examine the state of the organization’s infrastructure, security, applications, IT services, policies and governance. Focused assessments examine key areas, such as infrastructure or security. The result is a thorough understanding of the organization’s current situation plus a strategic plan to address needs which were discovered.
- Cloud Services: CGNET provides cloud services from several vendors. We are Microsoft partners and specialize in helping an organization implement, configure and maintain Office 365 applications including Skype for Business (SFB), Sharepoint, and OneDrive. We are certified by Microsoft for Enterprise Voice for SFB as well. We also can arrange infrastructure as a service from Azure or Amazon Web Services. Finally, we provide custom cloud services, such as private clouds.
