IT Security

A complete IT audit with advice you can trust

Have you ever wondered how effective your IT network, Internet Service Provider (ISP), workstations and servers are? Are they running slow and you don’t know why? We can compile an in-depth report using state of the art software and provide you with non-technical feedback.

Security is a forever growing concern, especially for businesses. The loss or leak of information can be detrimental and in some cases has been the cause of many businesses failing. From a business perspective, we carry out high-tech Penetration Testing, which helps safeguard your organisation against failure, by compiling a technical risk assessment of the entire IT network and identifying any security vulnerabilities.

Penetration Testing

Penetration testing is one of the most effective methods in checking the weaknesses and vulnerability of an entire network. This method of testing is used to prevent financial loss through fraud (hackers, enemies, disgruntled employees) or even through lost revenue due to unreliable business systems and processes.

Penetration testing demonstrates to customers and shareholders a portrayal of compliance and diligence, protects your business and brand by preventing loss of consumer confidence and business reputation, as well as shapes your overall information security and strategy.

Data Encryption

The most popular requested type of data encryption is disk encryption for laptops. Drive encryption securely protects all of your data on the disk using 256-bit AES encryption. The disk cannot be accessed without a passkey, and cannot be read by any type of computer or operating system. We use modern technology that encrypts the disk in real-time, protecting your data at pre-boot level.

Ensuring data is encrypted when working remotely from home, or being sent to and from your wireless router, is vital. Packets being sent over an unencrypted connection are open to interception by hackers, allowing any confidential information you are sending to be read.

Firewall and Intrusion Detection

Having the correct firewall and firewall configuration for your environment is very important. Spending hundreds, or even thousands, of pounds on the “best” firewall has no effect unless it has been configured according to your environment accurately.

We have encountered cases, where business professionals or those who claim are IT literate, have installed firewalls themselves and have not configured it correctly, leaving themselves open to intrusions to their internal networks, and potential lock-downs of all inbound and outbound routes.

We have dedicated trained professionals to ensure your networks are fully secured to the best possible level and your firewall and security appliances are kept up to date with the latest signatures/ definitions.

Email Scanning

Our email scanning utilities scan all email, content and attachments for viruses, spyware, malware and spam before the email is delivered to your server or personal inbox. This prevents such threats from reaching your network. This solution can be implemented in all environments whether you are using Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Notes, or a simple POP3 service.

The benefits of email scanning are endless. Not only do users not have to waste time filtering through junk email messages, but spam is automatically removed before it reaches your network, so bandwidth or internet speeds are not wasted or affected while ensuring users are receiving business email. All updates are automatically carried out by ourselves, and best of all, you no longer need to worry about extra costs repairing PCs or Servers that have been infected by an email containing a virus, spyware or malware.

Web Security and Web Filtering

Safeguard your business from the growing threats on the World Wide Web (WWW). Are you concerned about where your users are spending their working hours? Or want to prevent access to certain websites at particular times to ensure productivity? Or do you simply want to block access to offensive material online?

We offer an online web scanning and filtering service that can be controlled from anywhere. This simple service can preserve bandwidth by enforcing acceptable use policies, maintain consistency as policies and protection is applied to all employees, allow you to acquire full visibility and accountability of web use amongst employees, and generate reports to find out where employees are spending most of their time.

Anti-virus, Spyware and Malware Protection

Anti-virus software protects against harmful viruses and trojans that can affect the performance, stability and vulnerability of your machine and data. Viruses can damage or destroy the data stored on your machine and possibly spread to other computers on the network. An entry-level anti-virus program protects you against cyber criminals who collect sensitive data (e.g. Banking information) from your computer.

It is vital to keep your machines protected with the latest anti-virus updates. We only use the most renowned software for effective virus detection against infections, and ensure it complies with other implemented network security policies.
