The Kemp Professional Services team provide expertise and insight to ensure the rapid and issue-free deployment of application delivery resources. Kemp evaluates, plans, designs and implements your application delivery environment with a personalized service that brings the experience of over 40,000 implementations to your deployment.
With Kemp Professional Services, the engagement is scheduled with a Kemp engineer who will analyze your requirements and define an agreed statement of work to configure and optimize your application delivery services such as load balancing, web application firewall and edge security authentication for your specific workloads. This approach saves significant amounts of time in the critical bring-up phase of a deployment and is backed by priority Tier 3 Support throughout the entire engagement. Beyond reducing initial deployment overhead, Kemp goes on to ensure that administrative staff receive a full transfer of information relating to their configuration so they are fully prepared to maintain the environment.
