We have tried and tested relationships with a broad network of security solutions providers, and we have a wealth of experience when it comes to developing and deploying a wide range of cybersecurity solutions. At the end of the day, it’s your data. Your budget. Your entire company. We bring our experience, expertise, and objectivity to the table to help you protect it all.

Network performance problems - Latency and speed

  • Latency in the data network is dependent on a few things. The biggest factor is distance. We can’t send data any faster than the speed of light. But there are other things that can increase latency, such as how many “hops” the traffic takes. The more equipment that is in the way, the more routers/switches there are that analyze and forward the traffic on its way to its destination. These all add to the latency and are applied to both standard internet circuits and private lines.

Data Center

GCN offers many data center solutions for clients seeking the most efficient, reliable, and cost-effective ways of storing, accessing, and backing up their business’s data. We work with your team to source and implement the best connectivity and bandwidth solutions when you need them most.

Our technical teams have designed and implemented countless colocation solutions around the world for our clients.

  • If your business locations frequently exchange data, transfer files, or need to access information.
  • Simply put, you cannot buy better protection for your mission-critical applications. Our Private Line Services feature high-speed, high quality, reliability, and seamless security.

Cloud computing

More and more businesses are allowing at least a part of their data to be hosted in the cloud. Connect with GCN to discuss the cloud services that best fit your business needs and budget.

  • As a true leap beyond traditional hosting options, cloud computing is known for the following characteristics via a “utility computing” model:
  • Elastic, in that, a user can have as much or as little of a service as they want at any given time in this “utility model”.
  • Service is fully managed by the provider, completely eliminating the need for the user to purchase and maintain a server.

IaaS and PaaS

  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) are commonly offered together by most carriers. IaaS enables you to pay granularly for computing capacity, RAM, data storage, and network bandwidth based upon usage. Basically, IaaS is the physical part of the Cloud. PaaS refers to the platform or Operating System, such as Windows, Linux, etc.


  • Software as a Service (SaaS) is a software delivery model in which software and associated data are centrally hosted in the Cloud. This can include software and applications such as Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft Dynamics, Oracle, Google Apps, and many more.


  • Desktop-as-a-service (DaaS), also called virtual desktop or hosted desktop services, is the outsourcing of a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) to a third-party service provider. Typically, DaaS has a multi-tenancy architecture and streams the desktop image to your end consoles device, such as a desktop, laptop, thin client, tablet, or smartphone.
