Realizing their attempts were insufficient to avoid costly data breaches and PCI penalties, they engaged EarthLink to conduct a compliance diagnostic as well as vulnerability scanning and penetration testing. The results showed only 34% compliance and significant security shortcomings. EarthLink identified the exposures and provided remediation recommendations to safeguard their network and prevent a serious data breach. – A manufacturing company was seriously impacted by variable outages with their existing cable network provider. They also had key high availability network equipment that was being unused, due to a lack of IT staff for design and configuration. The customer engaged EarthLink to help with network design, mapping out a vital secondary connectivity plan, as well as configuration of their unused equipment. The result was redundant, high availability connectivity to ensure a stable network environment. How can EarthLink Professional Services help me?
