Automation
Your systems and infrastructure works for you while you have peace of mind

IT automation is the linking of disparate systems and software in such a way that they become self-acting or self-regulating.

Tasks that are done on a daily basis that are repetitive and the same, are great candidates for automation. What this means is that to improve efficiency, accuracy and workers time spent doing more important tasks that would normally take hours to do, now can be done within minutes. As a result, thus improving work productivity and saving companies a large chunk of finance due to less physical hours spent on these jobs. We are able to automate almost any process. Once discussing, assessing, and formulating a strategy with you and your team, we then can determine the components that will be required to create a custom automation program for you.

CyberSecurity
There are malicious programs created by corrupted hackers on the web. Lets build an secure barrier to protect your company’s assets together.

CUSTOMIZED CYBERSECURITY PLANS

A computer network assessment will help you begin a cybersecurity plan to mitigate the largest risks to your business. We recommend this be done ASAP if not already done so to ensure your private files and infrastructure is safe and secured in every aspect from both inside and outside threats.

A comprehensive cybersecurity plan needs to focus on three key areas:

PREVENTION: Solutions, policies and procedures need to be identified to reduce the risk of attacks.

RESOLUTION: In the event of a computer security breach, plans and procedures need to be in place to determine the resources that will be used to remedy a threat.

RESTITUTION: Companies need to be prepared to address the repercussions of a security threat with their employees and customers to ensure that any loss of trust or business is minimal and short-lived

Penetration Testing
Your are only as strong as your weakest system. Let us make sure you have none.

What is Penetration Testing

A penetration test, also known as a Pen Test is a legal attempt at gaining access to your protected computer systems or networks, often conducted by a third party organization. The purpose of the test is to identify security vulnerabilities and then attempt to successfully exploit them in order to gain some form of access to the network or computer system. Should a successful compromise take place, the flaw/vulnerability is classified into a threat level for the organization. These levels are typically low, medium or high. Once we concluded our PEN testing, Most penetration we will provide you with a detailed report on the security findings along with remedies for the threats and then put solutions into action getting your network locked down.

What kinds of Pen Tests do we offer:

Black Box
In a black box test, we are given no prior knowledge of the corporate system that is given to us. This is often the most preferred test as it is an accurate simulation of how an outsider/hacker would see the network and attempt to break into it.

White Box
A white box test on the other hand is when we are given full IP information, network diagrams and source code files to the software, networks and systems, in a bid to find weaknesses from any of the available information.

With ether form of testing, you will come to see that your network was not designed to the best of your knowledge. With us, we will work with you to ensure your infrastructure is rock solid and free of open holes. Custom threat detection systems can be implemented to make sure you are always covered.

Infrastructure
Whether new or existing let us secure & optimize your core. It's there when you need it most.

Network overhauling

By definition overhauling is to examine or go over carefully for needed repairs or dismantle in order to make repairs. This is exactly what we here at Universum excels in. What we can do is examine all current network infrastructure including but not limited to routers, switches and servers and research how we can make your network run smoother, more efficiently and maximize availability of all network resources. During this phase we can work with you to plan out what your future needs may be and then begin to execute capacity planning for those needs. To truly realize the benefits of a network overhaul, every aspect of your current network will be looked at. To begin, we would need to assess what you’re currently using for hardware and software, then with that knowledge find a cost effective solution and implement it with careful thought and precision.

Network Architecture

At Universum, we know that having an optimally designed network can make a world of difference in how data is transferred both locally and over great distances. To ensure that you are operating at the best of your network potential, a detailed view at your current network architecture is needed. Network Architecture is the complete framework of an organization's computer network. A diagram of your network architecture provides to us a full picture of the established network with detailed views of all the resources accessible. It includes hardware components used for communication, cabling and device types, network layout and topologies, physical and wireless connections and implemented areas and future plans. In addition, our solution optimizes rules, protocols, and also constitute to the network architecture. We can sit with you and discuss the best ways to enhance certain areas of your network to ensure its running smoothly and efficiently maximizing performance.

Network Security

At Universum, network Security is an area we know and understand very well. When assessing a company’s network and how its secure it is, there are several things that need to be considered. Network security is the process of taking physical and software preventative measures to protect your underlying networking infrastructure from unauthorized access, misuse, malfunction, modification, destruction, or improper disclosure, thereby creating a secure platform for computers, users and programs to perform their permitted critical functions within a secure environment. Our services to you would be to analyze your network for vulnerabilities and then put forth into action a plan to create a secure, locked down environment which would prevent anything or anyone unauthorized entry into any of your systems.

Telecom
Having a reliable, effective phone infrastructure can make a difference when it comes to communicating with your clients.

PBX Systems

A PBX or private branch exchange is a telephone system within an enterprise that switches calls between enterprise users on local lines while allowing all users to share a certain number of external phone lines. The main purpose of a PBX is to save the cost of requiring a line for each user to the telephone company's central office. The PBX is owned and operated by the enterprise rather than the telephone company. Private branch exchanges used analog technology originally. Today, PBXs use digital technology. Universum will plan, design, and implement the following components which make up digital PBX system. The exchange itself. What the exchange is, its a computer that is usually a dedicated server that will automatically connect phones to each other and allow people to talk. The next components are the phones themselves. You must use special telephones designed to be able to connect to the PBX system. One common form used by telephones connecting via computers is a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) phone. Traditional PBX systems by comparison use analog PBX phones designed to connect especially to the PBX switching box. Lastly there is the gateway. The gateway allows your internal PBX system to connect to outside telephones on the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). This means that your phones will have a way to call others.

We work with many leading providers of your existent system but we are not limited to. We can also provide custom solutions.

Cloud Services
Always be connected and have available what you need even when your on the go.

Here at Universum we are firm believers in cloud computing for a number of reasons. Cloud services means services made available to users on demand via the Internet from a cloud computing provider's servers as opposed to being provided from a company's own on-premises servers. Cloud services are designed to provide easy, scalable access to applications, resources and services, and are fully managed by a cloud services provider and by Universum. A cloud service can dynamically scale to meet the needs of its users, and because the service provider supplies the hardware and software necessary for the service, there’s no need for a company to spend an exorbitant amount of money to procure these things on their own. . Examples of cloud services include online data storage and backup solutions, Web-based e-mail services, hosted office suites and document collaboration services, database processing, managed technical support services and more. Some reasons why we feel cloud resources/computing are most beneficial are as follows:

1. Achieve economies of scale – increase volume output or productivity with fewer people. Your cost per unit, project or product plummets.

2. Reduce spending on technology infrastructure. Maintain easy access to your information with minimal upfront spending. Pay as you go (weekly, quarterly or yearly), based on demand.

3. Globalize your workforce on the cheap. People worldwide can access the cloud, provided they have an Internet connection.

4. Streamline processes. Get more work done in less time with less people.

5. Reduce capital costs. There’s no need to spend big money on hardware, software or licensing fees.

6. Improve accessibility. You have access anytime, anywhere, making your life so much easier!

7. Monitor projects more effectively. Stay within budget and ahead of completion cycle times.

8. Less personnel training is needed. It takes fewer people to do more work on a cloud, with a minimal learning curve on hardware and software issues.

9. Minimize licensing new software. Stretch and grow without the need to buy expensive software licenses or programs.

10. Improve flexibility. You can change direction without serious “people” or “financial” issues at stake.If you choose to have us we will work out a solution to plan, develop and deliver to you cloud services at the best cost. You can rest assured that it will open up a whole new world of possibilities that at one point seemed unattainable. At Universum we embrace change, and are advocates of efficiency and cost effective solution.
