The Internet and Web industry sector has undergone tremendous growth and transformation in the past decade, resulting in vastly increased complexity — and opportunity. Companies in this burgeoning and intensely competitive industry are faced with rapid and continual changes in the market, the technology, and the regulatory requirements affecting the Internet. To succeed in this constantly fluctuating environment, companies must be able to respond quickly to changing conditions. An adaptive partner, AppliedTrust can provide dynamic support to these companies whose needs change daily.
One area that often needs attention is scalability — especially the scalability issues that arise when a particular service’s popularity explodes overnight. AppliedTrust has extensive experience in helping organizations develop both proactive and reactive responses to dynamic conditions. For example, designing a robust, secure, clustered blade environment to support a two-tier Web architecture is an excellent way to plan for growth. When it’s necessary to meet demand that already exists, moving the service to a cloud-computing platform can be a simple, effective solution.
Capacity planning is a related but often overlooked area that can provide immense value on the mid-term horizon. Do you know how much load your existing environment can support? Can you predict where the service will be in 12 months, and how much hardware and software scaling will be required to support the future user base? We can quantify these high-level concepts in a practical, actionable manner and develop the solution that will best meet your needs, today and in the future.
We can also step in to help you navigate the obscure corridors of information security, providing best-practice advice on system hardening, performing application penetration testing services, and clarifying compliance requirements. Furthermore, we can provide the precise level of support that you require. For instance, some organizations prefer to outsource their IT security services to us rather than hiring a full-time individual for the role. In other cases, we augment organizations’ existing security teams to assist them in establishing strategic direction, or in developing and enforcing security policies.
