The CED holding – Implementing a CED in a company which is not present

In small and medium enterprises is not common to find computers connected together or connected in a rough, perhaps by several technical sessions later worked to solve specific problems without having an overview of the situation.

First you need to convince the company to abandon the classical concept of “technical all-rounder” for the creation of a CED itself.

Since this is not always frowned upon, it should explain in detail the benefits of network structure and in particular the three types of services: messaging, resource sharing and surveillance.

  • The messaging service that allows you to interact vocally or in writing. Belong to this type of services and communication paper, phone and fax to e-mail, instant messaging, chat and video presentation systems.
  • Sharing of resources is that service that allows you to use a single resource to more people. Belong to this type of services the print spooler, the backup server, shared virtual spaces.
  • Surveillance is that service that guarantees the security of data in the local physical and virtual. Belong to this type of service is the physical protection of equipment supervision as protection from software tampering and unauthorized access.

Implementing a network

The first step is to verify that all computers are networked together and work towards a LAN, a local network that can be connected to the Internet at a later time. To this end, the computer must already be configured to accommodate the router. Along with the router should always install a firewall to better protect the network from unauthorized intrusion from outside.

In implementing the LAN is good to consider the possibility that it could not perform the normal work of wiring for both construction and economic problems, in which case it is useful to use one or more access points to create a wireless local area networks, commonly called WLAN.

Once the network is good cause to familiarize staff with the best available and acquire a greater attention to the organization of documents. To obtain this the easiest way is to achieve resource sharing, in particular all the printers and a single dedicated disk on one computer, chosen according to availability: this record available to all to move files from one location to another using LAN instead of the common exchange of floppy disks. We must also educate users to learn to always save your work and apply the appropriate folders for this purpose so as to maintain orderly archive and history of operations.

The next step is the purchase of a Central Management Server to which delegate the coordination of resources and management of the shared disk you created earlier in the same time implementing functionality of Backup Security.

Now we must train personnel to back up their data on the shared disk, in a separate folder, the system will update the daily backups on the second disk of the server, specially configured.

From now on you can manage the Internet connection of the structure. Likely to be already present prior connection configurations such as dial-up individual users or broadband connections established above: these connections should be disabled depending on the stability of expenditure according to the economic security of the network. Must also be communicated to the users some rules regarding the use of media from outside to minimize the risk of harmful external agents such as viruses for Microsoft Windows operating system or spyware and backdoors.
