A Better User Experience for all Users

Start solving all of your struggles with conflicts you have between multiple datacenters.

While data and applications are available in the other datacenters, facilities are not in place to make sure that end users are able to simply access them. This is why we utilize Citrix technologies with our total solutions package, because it provides seamless fail over from the user-side connection between datacenters in a completely transparent manner for the end users or students.

The user experience is consistent regardless of where they are or what type of device they are using.

Do more with your technology for less!

We understand tax revenues are down and budgets are declining, how educational institutions are struggling to do more with less. Despite diminishing funds, we know schools are under increasing pressure to attract top teachers and faculty, and empower students with technology-rich learning environments.

At LKMethod, we offer solutions to top challenges in education, that enhance security, availability and performance of collaboration Apps and tools needed. To engage a generation of learners you need secure collaboration, video, more interactivity and to provide the freedom to learn from anywhere. 

Security & Compliance

Educational organizations are largely concerned about security and we have vast expertise in architecting the Citrix environment to adhere-to and enforce HIPAA/PCI Compliance. In fact, most of the financial organizations we enter do not have a high-security Citrix deployment. In addition to architecting a secure Citrix deployment, we have successfully provided Web Application Firewall capabilities to front-end many at-risk applications using Citrix assets already owned.

What is HIPAA Compliance?

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) sets the standard for sensitive patient data protection. Companies that deal with protected health information (PHI) must have physical, network, and process security measures in place and follow them to ensure HIPAA Compliance. Covered entities (anyone providing treatment, payment, and operations in healthcare) and business associates (anyone who has access to patient information and provides support in treatment, payment, or operations) must meet HIPAA Compliance. Other entities, such as subcontractors and any other related business associates must also be in compliance.

Our Past Solution Deployments in Education I.T.

County School District – Visions Upgrade

Designed and implemented a computing architecture based on Citrix XenApp, Citrix Web Interface, and Citrix Access Gateway to support over 400 concurrent employees spread across Maricopa County to access their primary district application.

Higher Education – Remote Computing

Designed and implemented a computing architecture based on Citrix XenApp 6.5, Citrix StoreFront, and Citrix NetScaler using Access Gateway to support over 500 concurrent students spread across the Southwest.

Higher Education – NetScaler Redesign

Designed and implemented a new high-security fully redundant computing architecture based on Citrix NetScaler architecture using the Citrix Dual-Farm/Dual-Zone reference architecture. This implementation included five pairs (10) NetScaler devices split across two datacenters.  One pair outside in an unsecured DMZ the other in a secured DMZ internally at each datacenter.  The project leveraged GSLB (Global Server LoadBalancing) both inside and outside for full environment failover.  Additionally, Double-Hop SSL, application firewall, SQL Load Balancing, Web and Application Load Balancing, and SSL Offload were deployed.  All technologies were deployed to interface with current applications, networks, and Citrix infrastructure.

Higher Education – Web Farm Front-end

Designed and implemented a new high-security fully redundant computing architecture based on Citrix NetScaler architecture using the Citrix Dual-Farm/Dual-Zone reference architecture. This implementation included one pair (2) NetScaler SDX 11515 devices with multiple NetScaler Instances in a single datacenter with a single NetScaler VPX200 in the alternate datacenter.  Double-Hop SSL, SSL Offload, and redirection were deployed to support access to MS Lync, MS OWA/Exchange, MS SharePoint, SQL Load Balancing, and customized industry applications to support over 25000 students and employees.  All technologies were deployed to interface with current applications, networks, and infrastructure.

Higher Education – Web Farm Front-end

Designed and implemented a new high-security computing architecture based on Citrix NetScaler SDX architecture using the Citrix Dual-Zone reference architecture. This implementation included one pair (2) NetScaler SDX 11520 devices with multiple NetScaler Instances in a single datacenter.  Double-Hop SSL, SSL Offload, Persistency Groups, and redirection were deployed to support access to internally-developed  applications to support over 35000 students and employees.  All technologies were deployed to interface with current applications, networks, and infrastructure.
