Designing a local area network requires a thorough understanding of your current system demands, estimating the materials required, and properly forecasting future network infrastructure needs. Elements that should be considered when designing a Network:
Shared EquipmentReconfigurable Office Layouts
Specialized HardwareWall and Crawl-Space AccessMobile Device Support
A network failure can mean loss of access to:
Critical System FilesEmailPrinters
DatabasesTerminalsCritical Online Programs
Network efficiency problems and security vulnerabilities can be just as catastrophic. A slow Network can cause frustration for both employees and customers.

A slow network may also indicate the presence of malware or viruses on the Network. But did you realize your network security is probably being probed for vulnerabilities daily? Cyber criminals can wreak havoc by:
Cybercrimes are widespread, and the consequences of a successful attack can be devastating!
There are precautions you can take to prevent an attack and have a recovery plan.Prometheus is expert in designing secure and resilient systems which will reduce your risk. The best defense against cyber-attacks is proper network design, keeping your hardware and software up to date, training your employees, and monitoring your systems for suspicious activity.
Cyber criminals are organized. There are entire ransomware enterprises making stealthy, disruptive and malicious software. They design deceptively simple schemes to infiltrate small to medium sized businesses. They have low overhead and enjoy great profitability – the estimate is $10MM-$50MM per month. Cybercriminals accept Bitcoin, which is untraceable. The odds of prosecution and conviction is almost nil.
A ransomware-as-a-service organized cybercrime ring was discovered. They infected over150,000 victims in 201 countries. They split profits 40% to malware authors and 60% to those that discovered new targets.You are a target! Ransomware perpetrators cast a wide net. They target small to medium sized businesses with security loopholes. To get into your network, they send phishing emails to staff, which are difficult to distinguish from a real email. Cybercriminals are doggedly persistent and will try repeatedly to compromise your Network.
Prometheus Provides Layers of Protection
Cyber Security AuditDo you require a cyber security audit to ensure you are following best practices?To reduce security breaches and potential liability, customers and vendors may periodically request information related to your cyber security. These requests typically come in the form of lengthy questionnaires that ask for documentation of your policies, procedures, and how your systems are configured and maintained. If you fail to respond to these requests you may be faced with penalties or even discontinuation of your business relationship.
Responding to these requests can be difficult because many of the questions require technical answers related to the configuration and operation of your hardware and software. Prometheus has experience responding to these questionnaires and the technical know-how to answer them properly. The questionnaires require that you submit detailed documentation that describes your security policies and procedures. You may be required to provide evidence that you follow these policies and procedures. Our team will produce professional documentation that will meet the requirements of the most rigorous assessments.
The objective of these assessments is to identify gaps – weak links – in your security that can be easily exploited by cyber criminals. If gaps are identified, your vendors or customers will require you to fix them and you will be required to resubmit the security questionnaire with all the necessary documentation.
Because security gaps put your business at risk, it’s important that you resolve them as quickly as possible. Gaps in security may be relatively easy to fix, or they may require an investment in new technology. Prometheus Computers will identify solutions that are appropriate for your business. Our engineering team will install, configure and maintain the hardware and software needed to protect your business.
