protecting your IT systems
As businesses rely on their IT systems for many aspects of day to day operations, the issue of cyber security becomes increasingly important, if not critical. With instances of viruses, malware, hacking and ransomware on the rise it’s vital that your business is protected from the risks of these cyber attacks, as the impact can be catastrophic. Together with threat prevention hardware, software firewalls, Antivirus Software, access control and physical security we can help design and implement solutions to protect your business.
We start with an in depth risk assessment to check every access point including remote locations and even your own suppliers if required. Following the assessment we provide an executive summary with recommendations based on how to identify, protect, detect, respond and recover.
With our UK Government’s Cyber Essentials accreditation it demonstrates that we have the correct measures in place to ensure the security of data. To gain the accreditation, we were assessed on several key controls including boundary firewalls, secure configuration, user access control, malware protection and patch management. We can also support your Cyber Essentials / Cyber Essentials Plus certification, vulnerability and penetration testing.
Viruses work in many ways and it can be difficult for a business to protect itself, especially those with a large number of employees all with email accounts which is the commonest access point. The phishing techniques used by cyber criminals are constantly evolving and becoming more sophisticated meaning a virus can infect your infrastructure through any one of your unsuspecting users. They can then capture any amount of data about your business and clients, potentially posing a serious risk to your organisation.
Managed end point security
The more endpoint devices are connected to a network, the more routes cyber criminals have to infiltrate that network. Endpoint security management is a software based approach that enables us to identify and manage end users’ device access. This includes Managed antivirus software, web filtering, patch management, network access control and permissions, Virtual private network software and Data and email encryption
