Data services references the ability of businesses to distribute data to all authorized personnel regardless of location. Slappey Communications provides services that help businesses achieve their data distribution goals, while maintaining security standards and data handling best practices.
We provide data and networking services including hosted servers, data backups, email archiving, web filtering, fax to email, fat/thin client support, virtualization and engineering services.
Working with your small business technology consultant, and determining what is best for your small business, the decision as to what functions will be served to users centrally, and which will reside on client computers, determines whether they will live in a fat client or a thin client environment. In cases where users cannot be directly connected to servers all the time, a fat client environment is indicated. In cases where connectivity is always available, a thin client environment is preferable. Servers hosting thin client applications typically require higher throughput speeds than fat clients. Our engineers will work with your business to meet your requirements.
Slappey Communications provides IT infrastructure evaluations and planning to businesses in the Birmingham, Alabama and Central Alabama areas. If requested, we will evaluate various locations for new, expanding or relocating businesses for infrastructure availability, costs, options and expandability.

IT Regulatory Compliance
One of the most far reaching of the more recent regulatory laws is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA). The requirement to protect patient privacy in the age of instant communication, instant broadcasting and multiple portable devices everywhere is a particularly interesting one. Everyone who deals with patients and patient records must follow stringent requirements to protect data. Slappey Communications can advise hospitals, clinics, medical offices, billing offices, and archiving departments within the Birmingham, Alabama area on how networks and communications technology can be configured to ensure regulatory compliance. Having a HIPAA compliant service, HIPAA compliant encryption software, as well as ensuring full HIPAA IT compliance for your in-house IT team, is critical, and we will make that process as seamless as possible for you. Our team has also completed HIPAA compliance training, so you can feel confident in our ability to help you stay within HIPAA compliance.
The FCC, or Federal Communications Commission, governs the use of networks, competition, public safety and media. Spectrum management is a complicated field. We are familiar with all the regulations dealing with the communications industry and can ensure that all systems selected, specified, and installed meet the requirements.
Virtual security is a software-based method of controlling access in the virtual environment. This is a switching control within virtual machines to provide data and application security in a shared environment. This type of security can improve performance over host based security solutions.
Flexibility and scalability are two of the most attractive features of working within a virtual environment, and the security attached to that environment must be just as flexible and scalable. As we stay current with the technology in the ever-changing virtual environment, rely on us to offer you virtual solutions that may increase your business’ reach and capabilities, and the security you need to keep your business safe.
