Step 1: Exploring Common Microsoft Solutions

Azure VPN Gateway

Uninterrupted connectivity is a necessity in today’s dynamic work environment. With Azure VPN Gateway, PEI can help you ensure a consistent VPN connection. Say goodbye to the hassle of reconnecting or multiple login steps. Our experts can assist in creating a robust network infrastructure, guaranteeing stable VPN connections, and configuring all its components. Your remote workforce will enjoy a secure and swift connection to vital network resources.

Azure Application Gateway

Incorporating Azure Application Gateway into your cloud networking strategy opens doors to enhanced network connectivity and security. This load-balancing system effectively routes traffic to various servers. With features like URL-based routing, you can accelerate access to applications for employees and customers. PEI’s proficiency in deploying and integrating Azure Application Gateway ensures a seamless and efficient network connection.

Step 2: Prioritizing Security Solutions

Azure Web Application Firewall

Security remains a top concern when transitioning to the cloud. As part of our cloud networking service, we assist with the Azure Web Application Firewall, a robust solution that complements Azure Application Gateway. This combination provides centralized protection for your web applications. Additionally, our team can create custom Network Security Groups, enhancing your business’s firewall access from the internet to servers. Your data and applications will remain secure and shielded from potential threats.

Step 3: Undergoing Comprehensive Training

A successful cloud networking journey extends well beyond implementation. That’s why PEI is committed to empowering you with the knowledge to effectively manage your cloud environment.
