Deploy

Are you considering deploying a security product or service but don’t have the time to trial it for your type of network?

Are you unsure if a security technology will deliver the type of business and technical benefits you need to cost justify its deployment?

Do you want to validate a security vendor’s claims to support a purchasing decision for your organization?

WCL can do the job for you by building a test environment that replicates your corporate network and give you critical data to make the right management and purchasing decision.

Consulting

Do you know the Total Cost of Ownership, or the overall impact on system and network performance of your existing security solutions? How would it compare to a new technology or advanced functionality within another offering? Before you answer these questions do you know that you are getting the most out of the security measures you currently have in place. Before you go somewhere you need to know where you are starting from. West Coast Labs offers testing services that remove the guesswork and provide actual data to reinforce better decision-making.

Deploy

Security solution implementers can benefit dramatically by being able to create the optimal security solution for their organization prior to deployment. Deployment of complex security solutions with unique or multiple golden images for an organization requires discreet testing to ensure everything works as intended prior to deployment. Mistakes in deployment are costly and need to be avoided. With On-Site Lab from West Coast Labs, implementers have the ability to test and tune images prior to deployment to help ensure the best deployment experience is obtained.

Technologies

Information Security Technologies perform differently in every environment. How have previous deployments

Even if you have expertise in-house to carry out a comparison test, tasking them with building a test environment and managing the setup of multiple solutions is probably not the best use of their time. West Coast Labs can create a custom evaluation plan that includes vendor interaction, infrastructure design and implementation, all the way through to comparative results. The results of the evaluation not only reports on the efficiency of the protection mechanism, it will also provide insight into critical business measurements such as TCO and ROI.

Questions

A few questions to gauge the current state of your deployed security solutions:

  • Are they meeting the initial business case?
  • What operational functions do they positively and negatively affect?
  • Is there a clearly defined ROI statement?
  • How would you better manage the process from evaluation through deployment?

Our unique approach to security testing can provide valuable data to help answer these and other questions.
