Making it easy to work securely anywhere, anytime.

Empower Your Teams with Chess Cloud Managed Networks, Powered by Cisco Meraki

Chess introduces its Cloud Managed Networks solution. Powered by Cisco, and bolstered by our expertise as one of the first Cisco Partners to achieve Service for Security and Service for Access accreditations, we offer a comprehensive platform to ensure consistent and secure experiences across all work environments.

Empowering teams to work where and how they want is a regular business practice today and as such organisations of all sizes are now expected to provide conditions that promote productivity and collaboration.

This can prove difficult, especially when it comes to keeping your business and people secure across multiple locations. The shift towards remote work brings a multitude of cyber security risks that organisations and employees should be vigilant about. In fact, since the beginning of the pandemic, cyberattacks on remote workers have increased by 238%.

With the increased risk in mind, whatever your role or responsibilities, your teams need to use the same processes and technologies to deliver the same seamless experiences—whether your people are in the office, working remotely, or at home. That's where Chess Cloud Managed Networks comes in.

Making it easy to work securely anywhere, anytime.

At Chess, we understand the importance of seamless connectivity, whether in the office, remotely, or at home. Our Cloud Managed Network platform ensures consistent and secure experiences across all locations, empowering your teams to connect effortlessly from anywhere.

Powered by Cisco

As one of the first Cisco Partners to achieve the Service for Security and Service for Access accreditations we are uniquely placed to offer this service. Partnering with Cisco Meraki, Chess offers extensive expertise in enterprise networking and Smart Space technology solutions. Our certified specialists handle Consultation, Deployment, Adoption, and ongoing Support, aiming to minimise IT costs and management overhead with a subscription-based model accessible to businesses of any size.

System Management, Monitor and Alerts

The Chess Remote Monitoring and Management service provides real-time network monitoring coupled with intelligent alerting, automatic response, and resolution capabilities. Our Standard Meraki Management Platform Solution equips our Remote Monitoring Team with comprehensive monitoring and management tools, enabling swift action or escalation of issues.

We're not just reactive; we're proactive. Our system alerts us to potential problems before customers even notice. For example, if a Wi-Fi router goes offline for 60 seconds, it might not seem significant initially, but if it happens repeatedly, it could signal a potential hacking attempt. Our system sends alerts after 5 occurrences and alarms after 10, allowing us to address potential threats before they escalate. Protecting your business continuity and catching threats.

Threat Research Collaboration

Stay ahead of ever-increasing cyber-attacks. The best response begins before an emergency occurs. Cisco Talos proactive services strengthen your security posture whether you are planning or testing your capabilities. If you require emergency assistance, their global responders are engaged within hours. Cisco Talos works closely with Meraki's teams to develop and improve security features, ensuring Meraki products stay ahead of evolving cyber threats. By leveraging Talos' threat intelligence and expertise, Meraki enhances protection across networks, endpoints, and data, offering organisations stronger cybersecurity defences.

Smart Spaces

In today's hybrid work environment, the competency of a building is defined by its ability to ensure safety, sustainability, efficiency, and a seamless experience for occupants. The digital transformation has revolutionized industries by leveraging behavioural data to inform strategic decisions and gain competitive edges. However, many enterprises still lack insight into the behaviour of individuals and objects within physical spaces.

Enter Cisco Spaces, a ground breaking solution that transforms buildings into intelligent spaces using a scalable cloud platform. By digitising physical spaces, Cisco Spaces enhances safety, sustainability, and overall experiences while empowering data-driven decision-making.

For instance, consider the MT15 sensor, which could be strategically placed in areas like school restrooms to monitor activities such as vaping, without compromising privacy by using cameras. The sensor can detect changes in the air quality indicative of vaping, alerting staff to take necessary actions.

Similarly, Cisco Spaces can monitor refrigeration units, detecting when doors are left open and triggering alerts to prevent energy waste or food spoilage.

Another feature is the implementation of QR code entry systems for specific doors, enhancing security and access control while streamlining entry processes.

In essence, Cisco Spaces brings intelligence and efficiency to physical spaces, unlocking new possibilities for safety, sustainability, and seamless experiences in the modern world of work.
