Network Security

Are you concerned about your IT Security?
Very often, businesses only focus on their IT security when an infiltration or virus outbreak occurs. This causes companies around the world billions annually in down time, backup recoveries and technical support. This then forces companies to restrategize in order to plug the holes.

These issues are complex, but fairly simple to overcome if you have an IT strategy that incorporates the key elements of a total security solution. IT security comes in many forms, from physical access control, intrusion prevention & firewalling to Anti-virus and even video surveillance.

Desktop & Internal Security

Desktop security is also a key element of an IT security strategy that is often overlooked.

Companies tend to focus all their security decisions on preventing infiltration from the outside world, and whilst this is a key element in the security model, research shows that a large majority of IT security threats are from internal threats.

 

 

Many times, these security breaches occur when staff unknowingly leave the doors open to hackers by making simple mistakes such as writing down passwords on desk organizers, or using easily guessed passwords such as "password"

The reality of security threats is evident in today's technology world. Things like social engineering are commonplace in the world of hacking, and it is important that your staff are well trained to keep the doors locked so that your confidential company information stays secure.
