What is your company’s biggest security concern?
To some, it’s on-site theft or the risk of break-in and the inevitable business disruption and management cost that follows. The mere presence of CCTV can successfully deter would-be opportunists and intruders. Recorded footage can help to identify a crime and cast light on the perpetrator.
Door entry systems, whether coded buttons or remotely controlled via the phone system, offer peace of mind where safety, privacy, and security are concerned and will prevent unwanted visitors to your premises, but they won’t prevent them from accessing to your computer system.
Do you need a firewall?
A firewall is a network security device - software or hardware - that monitors incoming and outgoing network traffic. It decides whether to allow or block specific traffic based on a defined set of security rules that we can setup and manage based on your requirements. Thus establishing a protective barrier between your trusted internal network and un-trusted outside networks, such as the Internet.
To others it’s the fear of losing their business essential data. Records built up over many years that just couldn’t be replaced should they be hacked, stolen, or hijacked by malware or any one of the thousands of viruses, in all their forms.
- AV-Test is one of the most renowned test institutes for Anti-Malware products and it houses one of the biggest malware collections worldwide. In the first quarter of 2017 they counted 1,852,945 new malware specimens - that’s 850 every hour – which is an increase of 10.0% above the average of 2016.
- More than 4000 ransomware attacks occurred every day in 2016 and between January and September 2016 ransomware attacks on business increased to once every 40 seconds according to Kaspersky. Global ransomware damage costs were $325 million in 2015. That is expected to rise to £5 billion in 2017.
- Having a robust anti-virus solution in place is vital but, by definition, even todays best anti-virus technology can only play catch up and counter viruses that have already been created. Having a support company that can provide fast and effective service to minimise damage and save valuable data could be invaluable, that is where we can help.
For many of our clients we carry out Penetration Testing, which is where we look for vulnerabilities within their system and software, effectively trying to hack into it. We can then plug those gaps to further protect our client’s property and integrity.
