Firewall Security – Keeping Networks Secure



Talk to Taribo (NIS Ltd) if you are interested in a firewall to protect your systems. We are experienced with a range of systems to suit different applications such as Checkpoint Firewall1, Microsoft ISA, Broadband Router Firewalls and Software Firewalls.

Below is a simple explanation of why you may need a firewall.
When using the Internet, your PC is using a language known as TCP/IP to communicate with other machines.
To browse websites, you use port number 80.
To download files, you use port 21.
And Email moves along port 25.
But there are thousands of other port numbers that can be used, such as for web cams, voice, remote control, VPN, microsoft messenger, windows update, telnet etc.
Without protection - when you are connected to the internet - a computer hacker could abuse the open ports on your machine.
What a firewall does is quite simple. It allows you to block or enable access to the open port. There are both hardware Firewalls and software Firewalls, and Microsoft Windows XP offers a free software firewall hidden within a system menu.


Laptop Support – Driver Support and Configuration



This section has been dedicated to Laptop support. This is because they are more difficult to look after than standard PC's. Laptops usually require their own driver support and configurations to support the roaming user. Additional training and consideration needs to be given to the laptop user, to enable them to use their Laptop effectively when not in the office.

A strategy for virus updates and office compatibility may need to be put in place.


Microsoft Small Business Server – (SBS)



Microsoft's Small Business Server Operating system is quite simply a fantastic product for all organisations of up to 50 members of staff. It is a recommended Taribo product because so many free and useful software packages are included with the product when purchased.The Windows 2000 operating system controls your user logins and access or restrictions to file areas.
Network print control and fax sharing is also included.

Microsoft's Exchange server enables you to run your own email post office within your organisation. Internal and external email is there. With Exchange server implemented, you can also use shared calendaring, shared email public folders and MS Outlook is included if you do not run the MS Office Suite already.

Microsoft's Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) is also there, enabling you to have a feature rich firewall system in place and a proxy server to enable all of your network users to either share a single communication line, such as a broadband line to the internet. Email and web site URL logging is also available.

Remote access control is also there, allowing your IT support company to maintain your systems remotely or to allow your staff to pick up their email from remote locations. Remote drive mapping and VPN is also available so that users can login and access files on the network.

The only limitations with (SBS) are the 50 user limit and a 2nd backup domain controller server cannot be attached to the network.


Remote System Support and Telephone Support



There may be an occasion where a telephone call is all that is required to help you with a problem so that you can continue with your work. Taribo (NIS Ltd) are particularly good with telephone support, and especially so if we support the systems you use. It is also possible for us to connect to your server or workstation from our remote location to either repair or diagnose the fault without even being on site.

Working from Home – Bespoke Solutions to Suit All Scenarios



If the term home working conjures up visions of filling envelopes for a paltry wage, think again. Almost any job could lend itself to being carried out in your home, even if it is just for a couple of days each week. Many of the varied roles in the IT and Internet sectors, such as design, programming and development are ideal for home working, as they can be done remotely. The same goes for lots of jobs which use a computer. Other roles suited to home working include architecture, design, structural engineering, accountancy and auditing, consulting, journalism, typing - the list is extensive and varied. For most, it means making use of technology so that your home is as well-equipped as your office. PCs, faxes and laptops all help us to spend a few hours or days away from the office, while still putting in a full week's work.


Where can I find an employer offering flexible and home working options?
Some forward-thinking companies have realised that much of their work can be done remotely and advertise flexible working options to prospective recruits. Companies such as IBM and Accenture not only encourage home working, they also supply the equipment for it. But it is not just technology companies that make the most of flexible working. BMW, Shell, Royal Bank of Scotland, Nationwide Building Society and Marks & Spencer - and many more - also offer the option.

How to set up a home office
You can set up your home office from scratch for well under £1,000. If you rely on email and use of the Internet you will need a PC with a modem. You may consider a Broadband line, which is a high-speed Internet line allowing faster access to the Internet. Other essential items are a printer and a landline or mobile phone. If your company is unwilling to foot the bill, don't write the concept of working from home off completely. Consider the balance - will a reduction in your commuting costs help to pay for the equipment? PC - from £500 up to £2,000. The cost depends on how powerful a PC you need for your work Broadband Line - Now under £23 per month for a massive 512k speed line, with no extra to pay! Printer - less than £100 for a basic model.

The drawbacks:
Working from home can be an isolating experience for some people. Ask yourself if you are the type of person who thrives in a buzzy environment with lots of noise and chatter around you. If so, home working may not be for you. Spending time away from the office will distance you from day-to-day activity, so it is vital to keep in touch. Think of all those snippets of information you pick up during a week at work, from useful gossip about your clients and rivals to tip-offs about potential jobs. If possible, avoid a job where you spend all your time at home - try and get into your workplace for one or two days. It might be appropriate to arrange catch-up meetings with your boss or peers, just to make sure that you are kept in the loop. Also try to attend any major company events whether they are social or official. As well as keeping up to date, you'll remind everyone you're still part of the team.


If you are the Employer and would like us to set up your home workers’ connections to the office please talk to us. We are experienced with VPN and Firewall Access. If you are a potential home worker, talk to Taribo if you would like us to set up your office, connection and email for you.
