As a full-service IT consulting firm, Carnes Group LLC offers the following services:
Putting computing tools into the hands of the workers that need it can be an expensive activity. The traditional IT model of PC and servers has now morphed to include thin clients, tablets, mobile devices, Apple computers, and cloud applications like Office 365. Companies need methods to rapidly deploy desktop technology with a minimum cost. Technology has given us many alternatives for rapid and inexpensive implementation.
Using traditional PC implementation for mobile or power users, imaging and automated deployment tools such as Acronis and the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) and System Center Configuration Manager we can quickly automated Windows 8.1 rollouts. Standard implementation and quality assurance checklists further enforce compliance and consistent implementations.
Thin clients, tablets and mobile devices using Windows Server 2012 R2 Remote Desktop Services (RDS) or Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) take advantage of a pre-configured desktop that has the same experience whether it is accessed from any device. Using Office 365 makes deployment even easier and leverages the power of the cloud and standardized applications and users experiences.
Any or all of these technologies can be used to create the most appropriate desktop environment for your company.
We can help you implement that technology or mix that best fits your company needs and requirements.
Today's workforce needs the ability to access their corporate resources from anywhere and on a variety of unmanaged devices and platforms. With the trend towards bring-your-own-device (BYOD), you not only need to support several different platforms but also protect your corporate resources and maintain compliance. In many cases storing corporate data on non-corporate devices may not be ideal or even put you at compliance risk (i.e. confidential customer or patient records).
By centralizing desktops and applications in the datacenter or in the cloud, a Microsoft Desktop Virtualization solution helps you enable your users to access corporate resources from anywhere, on a variety of devices, and maintain data compliance. Desktops and applications are streamed but never stored on user devices so the risk of losing data on stolen, compromised or lost devices is reduced.
Let us give your users the same desktop - from any device, from anywhere, and the data resides securely in your protected infrastructure.
Companies need easy and automated ways of managing their technology. Whether servers, workstations, mobile devices or applications, maintenance and monitoring are important. New technology has made automated software and cloud applications available make management available even for small companies.
We use tools from Microsoft (Windows Intune, System Center) and GFI MAX that let us monitor and manage critical cloud-based applications, servers, workstations (including Apple Mac), and mobile devices; deploy and maintain managed antivirus software and online backups; deploy software updates and patches, remotely reboot devices; take remote control for support activities; deploy and use web blocking; detect and alerts on critical events and much more. We can report on all actions giving you the peace of mind that your environment is maintained, managed and watched.
Let us help keep your desktops and devices safe and preserve your IT investment.
Mobile devices are everywhere and have become the default information appliance for many people. These devices have become an important part of their lifestyle, and people want the same abilities in their job that they have at home – Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). This creates quite a challenge for businesses to be able to tap this mindset and productivity while protecting company data and providing a consistent experience across all these device.
IT is trying to enable people to choose their devices, but must also reduce costs and complexity as well as maintain security and compliance by protecting data and having comprehensive settings management across platforms.
We can provide you access to mobile devices through Microsoft Windows InTune and through our integrated monitoring system with GFI MAX Mobile Device Management. Both solutions allow device tracking as well as protection against device loss and theft with remote wipe capabilities. You can empower BYOD employees - staff work quicker, more efficiently, more effectively and flexibly through devices of their choice, accessing company systems and data securely. We will help you control support costs and track those assets while not compromising productivity or privacy for either your clients or their employees,
Let us show you how you can leverage BYOD while protecting your company data.
