The IT Department will be performing several upgrades over the long weekend. On Thursday at 10am -4pm and Friday 10am -4pm we will be upgrading the following services.
Wireless — We will be upgrading our wireless controller to the latest version. This version has several security enhancements and well as productivity improvements.
Active Directory — We will be upgrading our domain controllers to the latest version. Our domain controllers are the servers that provide access and permissions to Sage’s network resources (Usernames, file permissions and many other services).
Firewall — We will also be testing our new Next Generation Firewall. Our current firewalls are 6 years old and they have reached their end of cycle. Our new firewall has many enhanced features, that allow us to have more control over Sage’s overall security.
These upgrades will provide updated security as well as many backend features to help us manage the network. During these times the wireless access may be intermittent and the Troy internet might be down for short periods of time.
