Consulting Services

Technology Consulting Services

Servers, SAN, Datacenter, Cloud Services, Data, Telephony. When working together they form a powerful “Network” that should make you more efficient, more productive and more profitable. Unless, of course, you spend so much time managing and troubleshooting your network that it becomes more of a burden than a benefit. That’s where NCI comes in. We understand that your network should be an engine powering you forward. Unfortunately, every engine needs tuning once in a while. Most of the time, you should only marvel at how much it is benefiting you. NCI keeps your network humming along beautifully. We help you configure it to fit your needs. We help you find the components you need without trying to steer you to a particular vendor – except the one that’s right for you. We protect it from threats. We let you know when a new tool or technology could be added to make it work even better.

Integration Services

NCI helps you integrate solutions from industry standard vendors with your business critical applications required for your business. We handle all details and provide a single contact for service and support issues. Our team of knowledgeable engineers will provide all the integration services to ensure your applications are running optimally and available to your end-users. No finger pointing between different vendors and no headaches for you.

IT Assessment Services

IT assessments play an essential role in planning for new network implementations or troubleshooting existing ones. Not having an accurate picture of a network’s capabilities and issues can pose serious problems that could complicate, even undermine, a planned implementation and current employee productivity. Organizations plagued by network or security issues can also greatly benefit from a network assessment. Testing and analyzing all areas of network performance will uncover underlying causes for each issue.

NCI Assessment Services are conducted using non-intrusive software which requires no software or agent installation. Below is a list of IT Assessment offered by NCI.

  • Network Assessments
  • Security Assessments
  • Exchange Assessments
  • SQL Server Assessments
  • HIPAA Compliance

By implementing a SRP to run alongside of your virus protection software, exploits, malware, viruses and other vulnerabilities can be stopped from executing. Our team can develop a policy for your business environment and push it out to business computers using a Group Policy through Active Directory.

Hard Drive Encryption Services

Hard drive encryption provides organizations with comprehensive, high performance full disk encryption for all data (user files, swap files, system files, hidden files, etc.) on servers, desktops, laptops, and removable media. Full disk encryption software protects data from unauthorized access, providing strong security for intellectual property, customer, and partner data. Protected systems can be centrally managed by an Encryption Management Server simplifying deployment, policy creation, distribution, and reporting. NCI has partnered with specific hard drive encryption vendors to provide solutions for businesses of any size and markets such as automotive, aerospace, healthcare, manufacturing, education and government agencies.

Microsoft Active Directory Review

Active Directory (AD) review evaluates the architecture and implementation of Windows servers and workstations. The review focuses on different elements of active directory for these systems under domain control. This includes the forest structure, domain controller hardening, policy settings, account administration, and DNS security. Active Directory reviews are important because this technology often provides the primary mechanism for identification and authentication within the network environment. NCI’s approach reflects a combination of Microsoft’s best practices recommendations and our experience acquired through numerous AD assessments.
