Sidus Group’ managed Virtual Private Network (VPN) provides a secure tunnel that protects your data from malicious users and identity thieves.
With a VPN solution, your data is encrypted between the origin and recipient. This secure “tunnel” protects your data from malicious users and identity thieves that are always on the lookout for unprotected information.
There are two types of managed VPN solutions to meet your business needs:
Client-based VPN: Using an installed software agent, each workstation or laptop connects to the VPN tunnel individually. Can be used over most Internet-enabled networks and is a perfect solution for mobile workers.
Site-to-Site VPN: Router to router VPN solution. This type of VPN provides a constant VPN connection for an entire site, usually a branch or remote office. It is not mobile and does not follow laptops or workstations to other locations.
Sidus Group can monitor nearly any service on any platform to ensure optimal functionality of your systems and network devices.
Our robust monitoring platform is built upon industry-standard software to provide accurate and instantaneous notification to the Network Operations Center staff that diligently manage notifications and alerts. We monitor systems proactively to avoid service-impacting downtime by checking system compliance from multiple Sidus Group data centers.
Sidus Groups monitoring and response is different from competitors solutions for many reasons, most importantly being the instant attention given to each and every situation that may arise. Sidus Group 24/7 on-site engineers immediately contact individuals as specified and follow detailed pre-arranged workflows to isolate, contain, and restore service back to normal.
We practice what we preach: the system monitoring architecture that we employ to manage thousands of systems and network points of presence for the Sidus Group family of companies is the same architecture we leverage for our customers.
