Firewalls are often your first defense on a comprehensive security plan. We deploy strong firewalls with endpoint scanning, and intrusion prevention systems to help keep your business safe. Firewalls need to be configured properly to function for your business.
Part of security is a redundancy plan, this may mean for both data and crucial hardware. Redundancy helps your business see as little downtime as possible by deploying a plan in case of data loss or hardware failure. We put in measures so your important data is backed up on- & off-site.
Security & Virus Protection
We implement security for businesses. We take time to make recommendations on how your staff can stay safe while on the web. Part of our plan includes virus and malware scanning. We have industry-trusted brands that we recommend and deploy.
Everyone has become familiar with the term “firewall,” but do you know what type of firewall your business is running? Many people do not, but it matters. Not all are created equally and just like computers they require security updates.
Every firewall needs to be configured for each business respectively. It needs to keep bad traffic out and keep good traffic in the correct lanes. We configure all our firewalls to separate data accordingly. If you want to have your firewall audited, give us a call.
Every business has to follow certain compliances for protecting client or patient information. If that is PCI compliance, HIPAA compliance, or a combination we’ve got you covered. We know how to check the boxes and make sure your network is safe for you and your clients.
Without updating the firmware on devices you’re putting yourself and any data you house at risk. Even if you store everything in the cloud, you need to make sure the connection from the computer to the could is safe and secure. We provide regular updates to help you achieve this level of security.
Intrusion prevention systems are becoming more and more popular in smaller business settings. They scan data coming in and going out to help keep it more secure. We often recommend these systems as an added layer of protection.
Endpoint Scanning on the Network Level
Endpoint scanning on the network level scans your computers and checks them against its database for known vulnerabilities.
When the internet goes out, data is lost, or hardware fails, a business can come to a halt. We put plans in place to reduce the potential for this happening, and when it does happen, minimize the downtime.
If your business relies heavily on the internet to run, why not have redundant failover to make sure if one internet service provider goes down, the other picks up the slack. This is not for everyone, but for some businesses, it can make all the difference.
Fast System Swapping
When one system crashes or fails, the ability to change into another system quickly can make all the difference. This sometimes means replacing a switch quickly or the entire computer system. In medium environments, this could be as easy as swapping out the workstation and allowing the server to quickly provision the new one and it will be as if nothing happened.
On-Site Data Backup
Having a copy of everything on-site is a great start at system redundancy. In case anything happens you always have the ability to swap out systems and pull the data back in. This could mean hours instead of days to get a computer back online.
Off-Site Data Backups
Off-site backups are an integral part of protection for your crucial data. In the event of a natural disaster, fire, or flood, we want the ability for your most important data to be carbon copied remotely. We will discuss this with you when we sit down for our initial consultation.
When things go wrong or systems go down we take that very seriously. We respond quickly to get you back up and running. That is one of the advantages of being one of our managed IT customers.
All systems can be vulnerable. The best thing to do is protect everything as best as possible, perform regular security updates and audits, and use state of the art virus, malware, and ransomware protection. Finally, it is helpful to have someone knowledgeable to call in case a disaster happens.
Virus Scanners (Endpoint Protection)
All systems, MAC and PC need virus protection. Simple. It is not a place to cut corners. In some industries, it is required for compliance.
Well Informed Staff
Having a company your staff can call to ask technical questions or even inquire about potentially compromised systems is a lifesaver. Once a system is infected there is potentially a limited amount of time. Some viruses can span an entire system, so time is of the essence.
Regular System Updates
A good way to protect against hackers and viruses is to keep your systems up to date with the latest security patches. We install updates on systems regularly to make sure your workstations stay safe and protected.
There is always a chance for something unexpected to happen. However, the best thing to do is to have a plan and practice many of the points we have outlined here.
