Partnering for Success
ZAG’s business philosophy is simple—we will always put you at the center of our work. We believe that technology can be used to provide a competitive advantage for every one of our clients. Our longstanding partnership with Cisco is one of the many ways we can give you access to the very best solutions and expertise available today. You probably know Cisco as the recognized, global leader in switching and networking. Today, their offering extends well beyond routing to wireless solutions, security, enterprise mobility management, cloud, and even security cameras. As a member of Cisco’s Digital Solutions Integrator (DSI) program, ZAG benefits from access to Cisco’s engineers, training, and even funding to deploy certain solutions in production environments. Reach out today discover whether you can access DSI funding.
Benefits of Cisco Partnership
We have performed countless Cisco deployments, many times in incredibly complex environments. There is a very good chance that we’ve seen the challenges you face before and know how to solve them. Our solutions architects and system engineers are Cisco certified, and our team regularly update their certifications to stay on top of best practices and trends.
Myths and Misconceptions
Cisco is widely acknowledged as an industry leader. Yet, many people assume that Cisco solutions are built for large-scale enterprises and not SMBs or SMEs. This is not true, and in fact you’ll find Cisco solutions to be not only affordable but manageable for small and mid-sized businesses. At the end of the day, our team is here to help you make the right technology decision for your business, whether a billion-dollar enterprise or a smaller, rapidly growing business.
Education and Training
Part of ZAG’s client-centric approach includes a focus on client education. Some IT firms seem to think their job is done once they’ve set up your network and left the building (so to speak). That’s not the ZAG way. We’ll never install software your team can’t use, and we’ll never deploy a network you can’t manage. Our mission is literally to enable your success, and training is a core part of delivering that mission.
As we mentioned above, we deploy a wide range of Cisco products from network architecture to wide-area networks, switching to wireless, security to data center solutions. Network architecture experience includes Cisco ACI, SD-WAN with Viptela and Meraki, with switching extending to Catalyst, Nexus and industrial (IOT) solutions. We are recognized as the leading provider of Meraki Wireless solutions. We secure systems with Cisco’s next-generation firewalls, Advanced Malware Protection (AMP), and workload security via Tetration. You’ll often find Cisco’s Hyperflex and UCS servers in our data center deployments.
Partnerships and Value
ZAG partners with Cisco because we have a great respect for the company’s products, vision, and position in the industry. We also want you to be assured that our mission is not to sell hardware. It’s to enable your success. Unlike sales-oriented IT firms, we are not concerned with becoming a top seller for any one of our partners. We’ll never push a solution that isn’t right for your business. We take pride in our partnership with Cisco, but we also understand the value of other providers. When you work with ZAG, you can be confident that we’ll always put your needs ahead of anything else.
