Technology upgrade proposal 2 Strengths: AEnergy Company has multiple strengths. The physical and data security measures in place protect the company from and sort of intrusion. The collocation and VPN for offsite users allows the company to stay up and running in case of some sort of catastrophe at one of the locations. The combined work experience and knowledge of the IT staff is one of the greatest strengths of the company. The UPS ensures that the network remains operational in the case of a power outage.
Technology upgrade proposal 3 Weaknesses: AEnergy Company also has several weaknesses. They currently only have one source for their ISP, but do not have any failover protection. The devices connected to their network is currently only filtered using MAC address filtering and the devices connected via WiFi are only using WPA security protocols. In addition to those security weaknesses, there is not any sort of device management software in place that dictates how personal devices are used for business and where files can be stored to. Opportunities: There are several opportunities for AEnergy Company, first of which is to continue with the one-site collocation for the new office, which is currently used for the existing offices. Another opportunity is around security, both physical and virtual. The new location will also need to include an offsite security team that monitors activity on the new site and is able to respond accordingly. The web server can currently only handle 500 concurrent client connections, but that number will need to be increased to accommodate the growing client base. The last opportunity is access to the company for prospective clients in the new area. Having a local office will give them access to services which were previously only available remotely.
