The use of internet has a huge impact on the security and infrastructure of the company. At first the infrastructure was only used by internal employees and not accessible by the outside world. Using a Web-based product means that a part of the infrastructure should be opened to the outside world. To prevent that these users can have access to the rest of the internal network, the security of the infrastructure should have the highest priority. Besides this, the network performance should be guaranteed. Because the information can now also be viewed by anyone outside the company, a few recommendations are made:
- Check the network performance regularly.
- Secure the internal network in order to prevent intruders from gaining access to important information or to the rest of the infrastructure by use of a firewall.
- Avoid single point of failure.
- Define a back-up policy.
- Use SSL key in order to access Exact Synergy via encrypted https instead of un-encrypted http
