Network Cable Installations

Hard-wired networks are the most reliable and secure options for any office environment. Implementing both wired and wireless options is a common installation for most business. Whether you have a brand new network or need to add a single workstation to your existing network, Friendly Computers can install cabling to implement new or added systems to your network.  If you have an existing network, we can validate the existing cables to ensure proper installation and configuration. Using the latest in technology resources and keeping your specific business in mind, we will install reliable wiring solutions for your network environment.

Wireless Networks

Most users prefer the convenience of wireless services whether in an office environment, a public setting, or within their home network.  For businesses, it is important to secure wireless networks to avoid data loss, down time, privacy issues, and to ensure security of your business-critical data.  If you have a wireless network in your office, consider a wireless security assessment by Friendly Computers. An unsecured or improperly secured wireless network opens your entire office to unauthorized access, security breaches, risk of data loss, and non-compliant access to private data.  With an unsecured wireless network, not only could someone steal your internet access, they could steal computer files, passwords, financial data, and other business-critical data.  Friendly Computers can evaluate your wireless network and implement security measures to keep unwanted user-access from occurring while securing all data contained within your business environment.  If you are currently not using the convenience of a wireless network, we can also implement this option within your current network and secure it using the latest security measures recommended for the office environment while staying HIPAA Compliant should your industry require compliance.

Remote Access – VPN (Virtual Private Network)

Many offices have team members who require access to business data from while away from the office.  Whether your team members work from home, travel extensively, or simply need occasional access to business files outside of the physical work environment, Friendly Computers can provide secure remote access for you.  Using a Virtual Private Network (VPN), your staff can securely connect to your office network to perform any tasks they would normally perform within your office.
