Protecting your business from internal and external security threats
The security of your data and systems is of paramount importance and in these days of ever changing threats it is vital that a reliable and efficient threat management system is in place. It is no longer sufficient to employ just an Anti Virus system as malware has developed at an alarming pace over recent years and now comes in many guises.
Ten years ago, viruses were written and propagated by people as a form of mischief and they were seen as a nuisance rather than a threat. These days, the creation of malware by cyber criminals is big business, ‘earning’ them many thousands of pounds – typically at the public’s expense.
It is therefore important to employ a security system that not only detects and removes viruses from your network but can also prevent malware from compromising your data, ensure that e-mails do not contain sensitive data, check that employees are browsing only authorised web sites and also ensuring that any devices such as USB pen drives connected to a network PC or server have been authorised for use – or else get blocked from receiving data.
If you would like to discuss ways in which your network security can be enhanced and simplified, please contact a member of our team and we will be delighted to assist.
