Cyber Security is highly complex, and cyber criminals don’t discriminate. They do endless research to uncover vulnerabilities across the expanse of the digital world.

3 Primary Cloud-based services exist:
SaaS is the most commonly recognized cloud offering as millions interact with software hosted on the cloud, and not the platform or infrastructure on which it runs.
IaaS comprises the infrastructure and hardware that powers the cloud. IaaS allows users to rent the infrastructure itself: servers, data center space, and software. The biggest advantage of renting, as opposed to owning, infrastructure is that GBS can scale up the amount of space needed at any time.
PaaS allows developers to create applications, collaborate on projects, and test application functionality without having to purchase or maintain infrastructure. Development platforms can be accessed as long as there is an internet connection, allowing team members to stay connected and keep working.
“Cloud” technology is everywhere, but what is Cloud computing? Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of computational power, database storage, applications, and other IT resources through a services platform via the internet with a pay-as-you-utilize pricing model.
GBS understands the benefits, drawbacks and intricacies hidden in each one. No matter the cloud service – Amazon Web Service (AWS), Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud – their slick videos and online information make it sound simple. However, we know successful cloud migration is complex. GBS has the engineering expertise to ensure your company’s journey to cloud computing is thoroughly vetted, planned, and implemented.
Cloud computing is a quickly changing area that will undoubtedly play an increasingly important role for businesses of all sizes. But which elements of your IT infrastructure you should move into the cloud, and when, will vary from organization to organization. That’s why you need GBS. Our decades of experience and expertise can help your business save money and become a more efficient engine.
GBS Proactive IT Solutions will provide complete visibility into the health of your network infrastructure including monthly detailed analyses and reporting on:
Creating secured networks within your organization is business critical. And the key to effectively securing a network lies in the proper deployment of a Defense-in-Depth strategy. A Defense-in-Depth strategy creates controls in three separate areas: Physical Controls, Administrative & Policy Controls, and Technology Controls.
Physical Controls: Defenses such as security cameras, fencing, and access controls that limit a cyber criminal’s ability to physically come into contact with network appliances.
Technology Controls: Prevent the access to the content and data contained within the network. GBS accomplishes security using a combination of hardware and software. For example, our engineers first assess the business operation and need. Then configure a layer of security-based technologies to achieve control of your infrastructure.
Administrative & Policy Controls: Procedures and best-practices which guide employees use of data, personal mobile devices, use of internet, wireless connectivity, and other security requirements. Our Secured Networks solutions take into account the three types of controls necessary to achieve defense in depth.
Backup solutions focus on safely and economically storing critical data, and the ability to recover that data efficiently. GBS cloud-storage experts will help establish a data backup and storage plan that balances security, access, and ability to recover data quickly.
With over a quarter century of data backup experience, GBS technicians will first ask the proper questions in order to set the backup plan that will safely store and help recover from any event that delays instant access to protected data.
