The threats of cyberattacks and network security breaches grow each day and present some of the most difficult challenges that modern organizations face. Maintaining a network’s security and protecting the valuable data of the organization and its customers is essential. A single data breach can have an immense impact on the bottom line of the company.
At Folco Communications, we take cybersecurity seriously and use the network security solutions from Gigamon, Fortinet, and FireEye to create robust tools that will protect your network from attacks. Network firewall security should be the first line of defense for all organizations. Firewalls can protect the network by keeping out the dangerous traffic off your network.
IP Gateway | Routers
Networking has revolutionized the way organizations do business and has become an integral part of day-to-day business. Leveraging the power of the internet hinges on organizations possessing the optimal equipment to communicate with their network providers. At the center of this process are routers or IP gateways (IPGs).
Folco Communications offers various professional-grade communication products, including routers and IPGs from reputable manufacturers such as ADTRAN, Cisco, Netgear, RAD, and SonicWall. Routers take all the traffic from and to an organization’s network and direct it to a default gateway IP address.
Finding the right routers and IPGs for your network can be a challenge. Our team of experts can offer assistance in choosing the right equipment to enable the features and capabilities you need, such as voice-over-IP, frame relay, MPLS, VPNs, or point-to-point to accomplish your needs.
PoE Switch | Ethernet Switch
At FolcoCom, we carry both new and refurbished communications products, including managed and unmanaged Ethernet switches for your LAN network. Solutions from Atram, Cisco, Gigamon, and Netgear offer both basic Layer 2 and Layer 3 fast Ethernet and a complex power over Ethernet and gigabit Ethernet switch. We also provide the installation of both switches and necessary cables for your network.
Integrating devices such as VoIP phones, Wi-Fi access points, or security cameras into the network is a must for modern organizations. A PoE Switch simplifies this process by delivering both the necessary data packets and DC power to these devices over a single cable.

Wireless Network Solutions
Modern organizations require the flexibility and convenience that a wireless network can provide over the traditional wired systems. Accessing the network from multiple devices anywhere on the campus or in the company building is essential to maintaining an efficient workflow.
The growth of wireless networks for business applications commands a total wireless network control, including Access Point Control, due to security reasons. Providing improved bandwidth and increased wireless coverage is also high on the list of priorities for most organizations.
At Folco Communications we offer the unmatched flexibility and expertise to provide everything from affordable single-access-point wireless networks to quality enterprise-wide wireless solutions that can drive your business forward. We use wireless network adapters from the best network solutions manufacturers such as Cisco, Adtran, Netgear, and SonicWall.
Network Monitoring Tools
In a connected world, keeping an eye on the network is one of the most critical priorities of an organization. Network monitoring tools play an essential role in this, allowing the organization to track and reroute traffic, detect security breaches and intrusions, and improve the network’s overall health and efficiency.
FolcoCom partners with Gigamon, Elfiq, KEMP, Ixia, and Dynatrace to provide customized network monitoring tools. Tools like Traffic Visibility Fabric, allowing insight into all network traffic in a single place, and Packet Capture Tool, sampling the data traveling through the network, are essential to detecting abnormalities, congestions, and security issues.
Larger organizations that need to monitor multiple applications should take advantage of an Application Performance Management System we offer at Folco Communications to ensure a quality user experience on their networks.

IP Gateway & Routers
All network providers need a device at the customer’s site for which the network gets handed off. That device is known as a router or an IP Gateway (IPG). Folco Communications provides these products from a number of manufacturers which includes Adtran, Cisco, NetGear, RAD and Sonic Wall.
Routers and/or IPGs come with a wide range of capabilities: from the low cost fixed port models, often used in Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) and cable applications, to modular multiservice models, which can be used for a variety of more complex networks. Router products are designed to provide Voice over IP (VoIP) readiness and internet access for Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), Frame Relay, Point to Point, Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) and Virtual Private Networks (VPNs).
For organizations looking to transition to state of the art ‟Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Trunking” networking, IP Gateways are the answer. Ideal for converged IP Networks, IPGs are designed for Ethernet-fed Wide Area Network (WAN) or Single-pair High-speed Digital Subscriber Line (e.SHDSL service). Routers and IP Gateways can offer a variety of networking functions that includes Network Threat Management (Firewalls), switching, Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs) and analog phone connectivity.
If the complexity of routers and IP Gateways has you confused, let Folco Communications, with our years of knowledge and technical expertise, provide the solution. If you need one router or a full network, if you want equipment that is new or refurbished, if you need installation and ongoing maintenance, Folco Communications can do it all.

If you are in a midsize to enterprise level business, we understand that it is important to have tools that allow for your business’s necessary software and tools to run smoothly. FolcoCom partners with many manufacturers, including Gigamon, Elfiq, KEMP, Ixia, Dynatrace, and many others that create tools geared towards different size operations and are designed to fix many different types of problems. Below are descriptions of tools that can help!
A Traffic Visibility Fabric which allows you to view the entire network traffic in one place. This will allow you to reroute traffic when an area of the network is congested or recognize that some traffic needs to have a higher priority. This also allows you to see abnormalities that can detect a potential breach.
A Packet Capture Tool, much like a blood draw telling about the overall health of the human body, allows the network to work as normal, but gives a view through small samples (packets) on how it is operating. Through this, captured packets help monitor the overall health of the network, but also help detect abnormalities and intrusions.
If your business has multiple applications, an Application Performance Management System offers the ability to manage availability and the performance of software applications and the impact on user experience in the form of deep transaction tracing, synthetic monitoring, real user monitoring and network monitoring.
Cyber Security is of the utmost importance in any business. Nobody wants to be in the evening news because of a security breach that effects employees or, even worse, customers. Not only is it extremely costly to fix, it is extremely hard to regain the trust lost when a breach happens, and it often leads customers to explore other options. That is why it is of the utmost importance to Folco Communications to find and implement security solutions by manufacturers such as Fortinet, Gigamon, and FireEye, that are at the forefront of technology and the best fit for your company. Folco Communication knows, those breaking in only have to get it right once, but to keep them out, we have to get it right every time. Below are a few products descriptions of top security products.
As mentioned in the category above, many of Network Appliance Tools that FolcoCom offers can double as a security product because they give you a look into the overall health of the network and tip off security breaches. Visibility Fabrics and Packet Capture can both alert that a breach has gotten by the other security products, by simply showing an abnormality in the network.
Firewalls are a necessary first defense against a breach. They only allow “good” or “approved” traffic to flow into and out of the network and block everything else. Firewalls can be also be programmed to fit a certain need as security of the information it is protecting becomes of higher importance. As the world changes, and hackers learn of different ways to attempt to breach a network, it is important that the manufacturer behind the Firewall continues to improve its software to add defense against the new maneuvers. Because of this, Folco Communications is Partnered to only certain manufactures, as not all Firewalls are equal.
Other more integrated security options include securing emails, endpoints, mobile devices and other various locations in the network to create multiple locked doors inside the network. FolcoCom has partners that will have experts monitor your network for you to ensure that the person looking at the information, is most up to date on what a current breach will look like.
