What is a LAN?
Your Local Area Network (LAN) is a group of computers and other devices in your office, that allows you to share files and access the Internet. When set up perfectly it all works in the background processing millions of pieces of data every day. When not set up perfectly YOU’RE processing millions of frustrating thoughts every day! We use our sophisticated tools to ensure that LAN is humming along and helping, not hurting, your productivity.
What is a WAN?
Your Wide Area Network (WAN) is the connectivity between all of the LANs at your businesses different physical locations. Data is flying all over the place and can easily be hijacked by people and organizations who constantly scan the world looking for your weaknesses. Once they are on your WAN, the real fun begins. They start looking for personal information, use your servers for their future evil deeds, and pretty much cause you to have to spend $1000’s of dollars doing what you should have done in the first place. Invest in an audit and ongoing support. The question never is IF? It is WHEN will this happen to me!

What’s the difference between a LAN and a WAN?
A LAN (local area network) is a group of computers and network devices connected together, usually within the same building
A WAN (wide area network), is not restricted to a geographical location, although it might be confined within the bounds of a state or country. A WAN connects several LANs, and may be limited to an enterprise (a corporation or an organization) or accessible to the public. The technology is high speed and could be relatively expensive to implement. The Internet is an example of a worldwide public WAN.
Lastly, the protocols are different between a LAN and WAN. A LAN uses transmissions to other devices within the same network segment, whereas a WAN uses point to point transmissions between nodes of the WAN which may be separated by hundreds or thousands of miles.
