Architecture & Design

Architecture

Network Architecture

An architect must consider more than just the external appearance when designing a house; the location of the wiring, pipes, etc. are also extremely important. The same goes for designing a network. Today’s wide range of technology options means you have many decisions to make. Thinking in terms of physical components (router, switch and firewall) does not always lead to the best network design.

Our state-of-the-art network architectures are designed for mission-critical infrastructures that require high resiliency and availability. As your business grows, your network must accommodate increased network traffic without compromising scalability, manageability and sustainability.

Our senior network & security architects will help you to build a security enabled networking architecture.

Security Architecture

Security architecture is a unified security design that addresses the necessities and potential risks involved in a particular scenario or environment. It also specifies when and where to apply security controls. In security architecture, the design principles are reported clearly, and in-depth security control specifications are generally documented in independent documents. System architecture can be considered a design that includes a structure and addresses the connection between the components of that structure.

Our security architects will help you evaluate the business influence of vital business assets and their associated vulnerabilities and security threats. Based on the architecture risk assessment, they will assist you in setting up a design and architecture of your security services that facilitate business risk exposure objectives.

Solution & Systems Design

High-Level Design

Most businesses actually only have a few key requirements for their network. The network should stay up, deliver applications reliably, be secure and easy to maintain and troubleshoot. These requirements translate into four fundamental design pillars that make up a best practice high-level design:

  • Scalability
  • Availability
  • Security
  • Manageability

Our senior network & security architects will help you to design a secure and reliable network infrastructure. They will select the most appropriate network technology to address your business needs as well as your operational requirements.

Low-Level Design

Based on our high-level design, we will deliver a detailed network topology and application diagram.

Our senior network & security architects will help you to design a secure and reliable networking infrastructure. They will select the most appropriate network components to build a cost-effective network solution.

Proof of Concept

All design changes you make to your network must be tested with a proof of concept test plan. It is important to test the current design, configuration in a non-production environment or on the production network with limited disruption. This gives real value to your solution, knowing what to expect, knowing the behavior. The test results should be examined and used to modify the current infrastructure. The results can be used to adapt the low-level design if necessary.

Our senior network & security architects will help you to define and execute an appropriate proof of concept test plan allowing you to validate the proper functioning of the designed solution.

Proof of Value

By doing a proof of concept, expected behavior can be checked with reality. Does the designed solution meet all expectations and requirements? At every angle, we know that seeing is believing. When people see every angle live, the potential suddenly comes alive and the value becomes crystal clear. It’s a tool that provides measurable value and can be used to check if all business requirements are achieved. So who can benefit from a proof of value? Everyone. Any company in any industry.

Our senior network & security architects will help you to define and execute a proof of value to demonstrate that the business drivers (values) are met.
