Brands We Love: Layer3

In the past couple of decades, businesses in Nigeria have grown more dependent on digital technology. Cloud accounting tools, subscription systems, team coordination aids, and project management software are just some of the solutions that have sprung up from this revolution.

A few words will suffice to describe what has gone on in this time: the commercial landscape has been transformed beyond recognition. And the pace of this change keeps speeding up. 

Companies like Layer3 are providing and maintaining the foundations upon which Nigeria’s large corporations and emerging enterprises build the next best things in their industries. They are a data infrastructure and cloud systems management brand which serves the data access needs of local companies.

That simple job description actually involves a lot of work, which only highly skilled and experienced IT professionals are able to handle properly. They help set up Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN), host business data on cloud systems, secure their communication networks, and make it easy for their staff to access and work on projects from wherever they are.

Remote working, in particular, brings a lot of challenges with it: workers who need to connect with their company’s cloud-hosted files in a secure manner, using their own devices. The setups and risks involved with making this possible can be overwhelming for internal IT departments. Layer3’s specialization in dealing with things like this means that it has the manpower and know-how to help IT teams overcome such challenges.

Some of the answers provided by this brand come in the form of Virtual Private Networks (VPN) with strong security features, and managed gateways to such networks. The mechanisms installed by Layer3 ensure that threats to businesses’ internal data and communications systems are screened out before they are able to wreak havoc. They also deal with on-site enterprise needs, like WLAN, which they design, install, and manage.

Layer3 promises fast, reliable internet access with low latency for clients who use its broadband internet services. It is accessible for a monthly subscription fee and is supported by a strong internet backbone of submarine cables.

This brand offers data center services to large companies which generate and need to store vast amounts of data. The architecture for this can be designed, implemented, and scaled in collaboration with client businesses as their needs and budgets determine.

Layer3 caters to businesses in several sectors, including energy, finance, higher education, healthcare, and services. They have also assisted public sector agencies to develop IT compliant systems.
