Information Security Services

Information Security Services

MCE123 provides Information Security Services, such as Monitoring as a Service (MaaS), installation and configuration of Firewalls and Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), setup and training to use encrypted VPNs such as through ADES, setup and configuration of SSL, TLS, PGP.

MCE123 provides Computer Network Security services, including using frame/packet sniffers to find rogue elements within complex networks and removing the threats – i.e. key loggers, Trojans, backdoors, and other types of security exploits. We can do this by monitoring the network traffic behind the firewall, to determine what is going out. We can also monitor before the firewall, to determine what is trying to come in.

We can identify potential adversaries and enemy competitors, and provide compelling evidence to use in legal cases for prosecution or tort, such as in the case of Intellectual Property loss. We know how to implement software/hardware solutions for Access Control, Wireless Security, Server Security, Application Security, Data Loss Prevention, SPAM Blocking, Anti-Virus at the Network Level, Anti-Malware at the Network Level, Ad Blocking, and many other types of services relating to Information Security.

Contact us today to find out more about our specialized security services. We are currently in the process of inventing new security products and services for the U.S. Federal Government, in our Technology Development department. You know that regardless of how little, or how complex your computer systems & network are, that we can provide you an affordable solution to all of your problems, and ensure that hackers, crackers, and other criminals do not gain access to your computing resources.

Object-Oriented Software Engineering

We provide cutting edge software engineering services, using object-oriented methods, with an emphasis on the six sigma process. We have access to teams of programmers that can create literally any type of software application to fit your organization's needs.

We Specialize in the Following Development Skills:

  • System Design and Analysis through OOP/OOSE Methods
    • Requirements Elicitation and the Development of the Requirements Analysis Document (RAD)
    • Development of the Systems Design Document (SDD)
    • Development of the Object Design Document (ODD) for each of the configurable objects within the software system.
    • Creation of CRC Cards, to help us understand and develop different relations between different classes, objects, and subsystems.
    • UML Diagrams, including Use Case Diagrams, Activity Diagrams, Class Diagrams, Object Diagrams, Sequence Diagrams, Communication Diagrams, State Machine Diagrams
  • System Decomposition and the Design of Subsystems
    • Interfaces, Partitions, and Modules that they interact with each other

  • Configuration Management

We have been designing software since 1999, starting out with HTML, and then JavaScript, Perl (CGI), PHP, CSS, Visual Basic, C++, ASP.NET, Java, Python, C, ASM, and now we are beginning to branch out into JSON, Ruby on Rails, and other languages.

Trust our experience in the industry, plus our marketing background, which makes us perfect to understand your Application Domain, down to the very small and possibly insignificant details. We are fascinated by every language that we program in, and strive to better understand our customers' needs by applying an unprecedented level of detail orientation to our modeling and systems design processes.

We also have experience with the following subject matters:

  • TCP/IP Model
  • Cloud Computing, including Amazon AWS and other PaaS's

Contact us today to find out more about what we can invent for your organization. We can design the software that solves all of your organization's problems, from the ground up, or modify an existing system.

We can sub-contract programmers, including those with military security clearances, if your project is vital to your organization and you can't afford your competitors finding out how it works. We have kept highly classified systems out of reach of the public for over 15 years. We are highly experienced with maintaining a significant level of control over our projects, and who is allowed to access the information. If you choose, we can use completely new systems to design your software, and provide you the development environments under contract after we complete the systems - or we can keep the project safely and provide maintenance to it in the future. Our ideal client is a 10+ year relationship, and we do not take on any development work without a minimum of a 1-year commitment, regardless of project size.

If you are shopping around, we hope that you would find out what it is that you would like us to do, and return to use, so that we can customize a solution to your needs. We are highly committed to maintaining positive relationships with our clients.

On-Site Network Installation & Configuration

This service includes the installation and configuration of a computer network.

Commonly, the types of networks that we are interested in installing and configuring include either Small Office / Home Office (SOHO), Small Businesses, or Enterprise systems.

We will sub-contract certified technicians and electricians or network cabling experts for larger jobs.

Generally, we can install CAT-5e, CAT-6, and CAT-6a. We may also be able to facilitate, through contract services, to install fiber-optic cabling.

The types of work we look for, based on our limited amount of time available, include network cabling installation or termination, and/or equipment installation and/or configuration, generally in data centers that are located in New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts, and sometimes New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Connecticut.

We may travel to other states, as we have in the past, such as California, if the client is needy and demanding enough. We will not travel for simple jobs, even if the rate of pay is relatively high, if we determine that the type of case doesn't help us with our development of advanced skills.

We can configure virtually any type of network equipment, including VoIP, Firewalls, Routers, Switches, and other types of SOHO and Enterprise network equipment.

For SOHO, we can facilitate the installation or configuration of existing Cable, ADSL, SDSL, ISDN, or Frame Relay equipment.

The rates for shorter, or smaller contracts, start at $150/hr for Enterprise with a 4-hour minimum, and $100/hr with a 2-hour minimum for SOHO - to $120/hr for Enterprise with a 30-hour minimum contract period, as well as $80/hr for 15-hour minimum for SOHO contracts.

These rates may not be supplemented for other types of services. These rates are valid for network cabling installation & termination, and equipment configuration.

These rates do not include the fees associated with the equipment, cabling, and other supplies, if needed. These fees will be billed separately, and generally, our markup is 30% up from wholesale prices, which we shop around for. Minimal fees, i.e. fixing one RJ-45 termination, will not be charged.
