“Network strength is national strength.” (www.Infoblox.com)
Government networks, whether federal, state, or local, are challenging to manage because of their size, scope, extreme security requirements, critical-mission services, and IT governance compliance. Any major IT issue within a government network can dramatically affect the lives of citizens, both domestic and abroad. Also facing the majority of federal, state, and local government agencies is the challenge of maintaining and improving overall network service quality with limited budgets and resources.
Government-based networks can be challenging to manage because of their size, scope, extreme security requirements, critical mission services, and IT governance mandates, such as STIG, IAVA, DISA, NSA and FISMA best practices. While a breach or failure at most corporate enterprises can result in serious consequences, few environments directly support national security agencies and armed forces, where any major IT issue can dramatically affect the lives of citizens, both domestic and abroad.
Planning ahead is imperative. EDI believes in designing the most effective solutions that leverage technology, as well as your mission, and takes a vendor-neutral, engineering-based approach to the design of your organization’s most critical communications systems.
Security is very important to government agencies, and there are many standards that must be met when designing security systems for a government, whether federal, state, or local. EDI understands these issues and works with you to ensure these requirements are met and that your risks are mitigated as much as possible. EDI uses a consultative approach to help you define the security needs at your facility and design cost-effective security solutions to meet your needs. EDI’s experience creating general security programs and policies, as well as comprehensive security master plans, for federal, state, and local facilities across the US is a valuable asset we bring to the design at your facility.
We are vendor–neutral and recommend “best of breed” solutions that meet your security needs and budget. We lean on our experts in cabling infrastructure, network design, telephone design, and audio-visual to assist with elements of security design because these systems are increasingly converging as the technology advances.
EDI's security services include:
In today’s economy, federal, state, and local governments demand cost effective, integrated audio-visual systems. They must be reliable and provide required levels of security and confidentiality – especially military protocols – in order to keep the many branches of government connected at all times.
EDI’s experienced professionals specialize in complete audio-visual design, which includes not only the proper equipment, but also the space planning, room shaping, room finishes, lighting, and acoustics. We have worked with many federal, state, and local government facilities incorporating audio-visual designs into:
“They understand the economic and patient care efficiencies needed now and in the future and were able to demonstrate this in their work.”
“I travel around the country quite a bit, and I count on EDI to respond to site issues and end-user needs quickly.”
