Is Your Data Safe?
Backups are cheap insurance for your mission critical data.
In the event of a catastrophe, data redundancy ensures that you can be back
online quickly. Even the smallest organizations need protection.
Data losses due to drive failures can cripple your business
Customers will lose confidence in your business if their data is lost or stolen
Without backups, your data may be unrecoverable
Even though your backup operations may be completely transparent, critical data
is often exposed during backup procedures. Regulatory compliance
issues may require
the use of strong encryption, physical security, and access control, particularly
when you store your data off site.
Backup media represent a point of exposure, and the transport and storage of the
media offer avenues for embarrassing data losses.
Seafoam Solutions Backup and Recovery Options
Offsite secure containers
Network backup solutions
Industry standard encryption
Documents may be propagated to many machines
during the course of normal operations. Duplicated documents can quickly fill even
the largest backup servers. Data deduplication techniques can reduce this overhead.
Business Rules Analysis
Business Rules Analysis (BRA) combines employee insights about "how
it's done" with a coherent approach to specifications details. Development projects
often suffer from ill defined objectives, so BRA builds a foundation for the shared
assumptions under which developers and clients operate.
Business rules define the properties and interactions of the processes software
systems are built to model. Rules constrain systems along quantifiable dimensions.
For example, weekend dates may be impermissible for a date field or tax rates may
not apply to a certain category of product.
At Seafoam Solutions our development team works with you to define the sets of rules
your system must apply. We recommend that your key people are involved in the development
and testing of your software. Successful development efforts require communications
between developers and users. BRA opens lines of communication that are essential
to the success of development efforts.

Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) Software Packages
Competitive companies provide their employees with the tools and resources they
need to help their business grow and prosper. Employee desktops can host mission
critical software, proprietary data, customer and vendor information, and personal
files, so they must be carefully managed. At Seafoam Solutions, we work with our
clients to create a technology rich workplace where your employees are empowered,
your management team retains control, and workflow progresses smoothly.
Managed desktops must be able to utilize local and network resources including files,
databases, printers, email, and the web. Account management and access control policies
provide you with tools to open access to these resources without exposing critical
data. Today's operating systems make managing these resources much easier than ever
before, but Group Policy management is still a task best undertaken by experts.
Scripted and Off-Site backups can protect your data, but backup procedures can open
security holes and raise regulatory compliance issues. Desktops and peripherals
consume power and emit heat, both of which raise your energy costs. Simple energy
management policies can reduce consumption. Your employees often do more of their
work at home than in the office. To support these hours you often don't have to
pay for, your employees need to connect to your network remotely. Your network's
health factors into its uptime. The attack surface your network exposes can be minimized,
but no network is perfectly secure. Updating your systems with the latest operating
system patches provides you with a sort of 'health insurance'.
The Green Sea Desktop
The Green Sea Desktop is an initiative by Seafoam Solutions aimed at reducing power
consumption and energy costs for our customers. Consider these facts:
Older, power-hungry systems consume 25 to 60% more power than today's energy efficient
Greater power consumption means more heat and higher cooling costs
During system idle time disk drives, processors and monitors waste energy
New, energy-efficient processors provide better performance at a lower cost
Machine policy settings affect energy consumption
Energy Star ratings offer a basis for comparison during purchasing decisions
Seafoam Solutions works with you to apply Green Sea Desktop policies to your new
and existing hardware. The Green Sea Desktop is a profile based system that can
be applied to machines at the Group Policy level.
