Top 5.5 Ways a Firewall Will Help Protect you and your Network from Zombies
Day of the Dead, 28 Days Later, and Dawn of the Dead. What do all of these movies have in common? Zombies, of course! With all of these zombies running around, we have all realized the importance of having a firewall to protect ourselves. (See what I did there with those firewalls? Ha!) Firewalls have always been
the protector of your network, and we definitely should take advantage of their abilities to stop those ugly monsters from getting in. Here are the top 5.5 ways a firewall will help protect you and your network from zombies:
It’s such a great day! My first day at work and I’m excited to be the new network admin. They said the last network admin they had left abruptly. (Not sure what that was about). This is my first entry, and I’m stoked to get to work!
I just love the hum of our server room. Some of our equipment is acting a little funny. I’m going to look into replacing a few of the switches we have here; they seem pretty new, but I have a feeling they might cause me trouble in the future.
Let’s face it: everyone loves a superhero. They’re strong, courageous, usually good looking, plus they use their superpowers to serve mankind. But we can’t forget about their brightly-colored and emblem-adorned tights that make them stand apart from any civilian. If you ask me, you aren’t a superhero without a cool outfit and it has to be paired with an awesome mask. Maybe these outstanding outfits are part of the reason they tend to take the spotlight as much as they do. For all their heroics (and sweet apparel), however, we can’t forget the Unsung Hero – those who take a backseat to the one flying around the city, but still offer just as much day-saving mojo as their superhero partner.
Here at CablesAndKits, we often put a lot of emphasis on the heavy-hitters of our product line – the switches, routers and phones that save the day when you have a networking need. But we can’t forget the Unsung Heroes that support them behind the scenes – the ever-necessary accessories!
Nowadays, we are always looking for the greatest and fastest technology. Regardless of the ever-changing landscape of that industry- we will always need Ethernet. Ethernet is one of the most important forms of networking cable used on wired networks. Here are the top nine reasons you will need Ethernet for your company or home network.
- Achieve high speeds on stabilized internet
With wired Ethernet, you will see a much more stable connection and increase in speed. Ethernet eliminates the possibility of Wi-Fi interferences or drops and gives you a piece of mind. We all know what it is like to drop a connection and run around frantically until the bar goes up on the Wi-Fi signal.
- Ethernet Friendship Bracelets
You can make friendship bracelets for all of your co-workers with the many different Ethernet colors. Relive your childhood and show those “special someone’s” at your office how much they mean to you by giving them their very own Ethernet friendship bracelet. It is the gift that will last forever. (Remember that Lifetime Warranty?)
- Direct file sharing
Transferring files over WiFi may not be the most efficient way to move large files. Instead, consider direct file sharing with Ethernet to increase stability and speed. If at least one of the computer’s network card supports auto-crossover, you can connect both with a direct cable.
You were just asked to order a long grocery list of products for your IT network that have a wide variety of functions. As the person responsible for keeping your business or organization’s network up and running, you probably have days where you have to procure everything from cabling to network equipment. From new builds, upgrades, to changing out broken equipment, availability is key to any IT person’s network.
Buying equipment or accessories is not always as simple as going to a website and choosing one item of many from a page. When you are in the purchasing process, you look for reviews and advice from others on what you should buy. Important questions need to be asked: will your network increase in size? Will you be adding devices to your network?
We understand that product selection and availability are essential to serving you well, so we’ve taken it upon ourselves to ensure we always have the products you need, whenever you need them. And, to make things even easier, our real-time inventory system lets you know exactly what’s in stock before you order. If we don’t have what you need on hand, or you need more than shown, we’ll do everything we can to have those products to you as quickly as possible with our expert sourcing. We’ve got what you need, as well as great turnaround time on those hard to find products.
As you enter into the last phase of your buying process, the thought of shipping comes to mind. Will it be expensive? How long will it take to get to you? When placing an order, you will be presented with several shipping options. You will also be pleasantly surprised that we offer same-day shipping. Yup, you read that correctly! All expedited orders placed with CablesAndKits by 8:00 pm EST will ship the same day. We understand the value in having the needed products in stock and delivering them to you in a timely fashion.
When you don’t have access to the products you need to keep your business up and running, it can cost hours of time and productivity. The CablesAndKits team is committed to providing the largest possible selection of Cisco equipment and accessories for your business.
