Security in communicating between London and Liverpool is very important
as is the cost of providing this secures communication.
2. The volume of communications between Liverpool and London is governed
by corporate needs and these are,
E-mails between Sales and Headquarters. This can be pretty heavy
at peak times and needs to be secure and reliable.
Liverpool has a lot of Video clips that they need to look at for
marketing purposes. Occasionally these are streamed to London
Headquarters is keen to allow senior staff in Liverpool direct
access to some corporate information on their servers. However
they want this to be strictly controlled so that only the senior
management group can access this information. The managing
director wants him and the technical director to have access to
everything in both locations.
The technical director is adamant that he wants complete access to
all Back-Up information.
3. Improvement should be made to the Figure 1 to separate different department
to different VLANs to increase the security. Network devices might need to be
updated to fulfil these. The departments of the company are Human Resource,
ICT, Management in the headquarter site; Sales, Marketing, Communication,
ICT etc. in the sales and marketing site.
4. Within the company, the private IP should be used to cut the costs.
I have uploaded the figure (network) that needs to be updated for this project.
