JK Technologies recommends the best technology to meet the client's needs. Frequently, a Microsoft/Cisco network is the best solution for many businesses. Our preferred Unified Threat Management firewall is SonicWALL, which we strongly recommend and use to maintain PCI compliance on our own networks.
However, JK Technologies is vendor neutral. We are a consultant firm and we know and utilize a wide variety of systems. Our main server is a Microsoft Small Business Server. Our ticketing system runs on Linux. We use Mac OSX 10.6 for picture and video editing and general Internet usage. We use Windows XP, Vista Business and Windows 7 workstations/notebooks for production and accounting work. We currently use SonicWALL UTM firewalls to protect our business connections.
Modern networks are often a collection of Windows and Mac computers, Linux servers, plus Windows phones, Apple iPhones, Android Phones, BlackBerry's, digital copiers such as the Konica Minolta Bizhub, and iPads. We frequently integrate these systems. Windows 7 is the best version of Windows that Microsoft has ever produced. Mac OS X 10.5 (and later) integrates beautifully with Windows Server 2003 (and later)--10.6/7and Exchange 2007/2010 work well together.
