Corporate-wide Anti-Virus Solutions
Computer-borne viruses have the potential to cause a great deal of downtime and loss of productivity. And with today's new blended threats, virus protection is an essential element of every network. Our consultants can help you choose and implement virus protection software that gives you the best chance at catching viruses before they enter your network environment.

A computer virus is a program - a piece of executable code - that has the unique ability to replicate. Like biological viruses, computer viruses can spread quickly and are often difficult to eradicate. They can attach themselves to just about any type of file and are spread as files that are copied and sent from individual to individual.

Besides replication, some computer viruses have something else in common: a damage routine that can deliver the virus payload. While payloads may only display messages or images, they can also destroy files, reformat your hard drive, or cause other kinds of damage. If the virus doesn't contain a damage routine, it can still cause trouble by taking up storage space and memory, and downgrading the overall performance of your computer.  At Sky Computer Services we recommend and deploy Symantec Corporate Anti-virus, Panda Corporate Titanium or  TrendMIco Corporate depending on your needs.

Starting at $380 to Install and setup for 10 users*

Reliable Backup Solutions
The cost of data loss for an organization far exceeds that of any kind of down time.  A reliable back up solution should be more than just the process of copying files to tape.  It should also involve a periodic test of the restoration process under different Disaster scenarios. At Sky Computer Services we maintain and implement various back-up solutions, however, we recommend Veritas Backup-exec.

Starting at $280 to setup

Note: When engaged in our maintenance contract, our engineers schedule proactive maintenance and monitoring. We periodically check your back up and make sure that all backed up data is restorable.

Microsoft Project Server 2002
Microsoft Project Server 2002 provides an extensible technology platform to securely develop and deploy project management across your organization.

Office Productivity Software (MS Office XP)
This is the leading suite of productivity software available to complete most business tasks, including word processing, e-mail, presentations, data management and much more.  We will install and setup MS Office to seamlessly save files on your server and allow users to access their files from any workstation. 

Starting at $75 per workstation

Virtual Private Networks (VPN)
A VPN connect branch offices and remote users by utilizing a public network, such as the Internet, while providing the same security as a private network.  Since using a Virtual Private Network involves encrypting data before sending it through the public network and decrypting it once it is received, information is securely protected.  Also, because Virtual Private Networks use an existing WAN (Wide Area Network) infrastructure, costs are dramatically reduced and deployment is faster than traditional private networks.
