Comparing the Processor

that case now.

T30 Mini Tower Server is a server
used for small businesses and it does not security built-in unlike T440 Tower
Server and T640 Tower Server. Both T440 and T640 are powerful, they allow
improvement in internal component and adequate internal storage as there are
only 20 employees spread out to 3 countries with good performance and speed.
However, T640 is more versatile and scalable for a business that is growing. Hence,
I will recommend buying T640 Tower Server.

Price: $2149 x 6 = $6447

iii)Mobile Devices:

Mobile Devices are mainly used as a
form of communication and some special features of a phone will not be needed
however advanced security features will be needed. PIN or pattern password will
not be advised to used as password like this are easily leaked to external
user. Hence, Finger Print and Face recognize Security features are what I am
looking for. For this I recommend Samsung Galaxy S8. In addition to the
security feature, it has good front camera of 8 megapixel with smart auto focus
if facetime were used for communication between colleagues. It also has a very
clear rear camera of 12 megapixel that is second compared to the best phone
camera of 16megapixel now. Not only that, Samsung also included an iris
scanning method which uses sensors on the front of the phone to identify users
and unlock the device. It is considered one of the most secured biometric
method we have available, and we can use it for everything from unlocking the
device to authenticating purchase with something called “Samsung Pay”. With
that in mind, it is also affordable with a price of $730.

Price: $730 x 6 = $4380





B) Software:

i) I will recommend Windows 10 Pro
for the operating system for all the computers.

The Pro edition of Windows 10 covers
not only all of Home edition’s features, it also offers more features such as
Domain Join, Group Policy Management, Bit locker, Enterprise Mode Internet
Explorer , Assigned Access 8.1, Remote Desktop, Client Hyper-V, and Direct

Assigned Access 8.1, allows owners to deny or
allow access from users to access specific apps. BitLocker lets you encrypt
your external USB-drives. You also get tools that navigate smoothly while
joining Azure Active Directory, and a Business Store for Windows 10.

While Windows 10 Home and Pro are
direct paths for retail users, there are other variants of Windows 10 as well
like Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Student. The Enterprise edition, is
meant for medium and large organizations by meeting their demands. It comes
with even more complexed features such as Device Guard, which gives a company
the ability to lock down devices. Not like the other two Windows 10 Editions,
the Enterprise version won’t be available for sale in retail stores. Instead,
it will be sold through volume licensing.

The Windows 10 Education edition is designed students,
teachers and staffs. The edition comes with most of Enterprise edition’s
feature. However, it is not available on sale at retail stores, though, and
will be seeded out through academic volume licensing.

Speaking of other Windows 10 editions, we also
have Windows 10 Mobile, and Windows 10 Mobile Enterprise. As their names
suggest, both are designed to empower smartphones and not the desktop platform.
Microsoft is also releasing Windows 10 Core, an operating system for Internet
of Things devices.

Price: $199 x 20 = $3980

ii) I will be using anti-virus software for the mobile
devices. The two anti-virus software I will be choosing will be the two most
software, Norton Security with a preview of 9.1/10 and Total AV Security with a
preview of 9.8/10.

I will be comparing the difference between these two

Total AV






Device Backup


to Use

Easy to Use

Total AV also helps to improve browsing experience by
removing unwanted cache file and old history and enhance system performance
identifying errors and programs that slow the computer down.

In my opinion, if the desktop is not slow, fast speed
will be a want and not a need. I will recommend buying Norton as it has all the
necessary features that the company needs and it is also cheaper.

Price: $129 x 6 = $774(for all devices)

iii) For Office Soft Suites I will buy Office 365 Business

Office 365 business premium has a business class email
with 50GB storage, HD video conferencing, Desktop version of Outlook, Word,
Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, plus Access and Publisher for PC only. It has also
1TB OneDrive Storage. It only costs S$16.70 per user/monthly.
