How can EarthLink Professional Services help me?
Case Studies:
– A large national fitness club chain had been using self-reporting in their
attempts to comply with the PCI standard. 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.
