Network Security

Proactive monitoring of all external access points for your network. Hardware and software solutions that identify possible threats while actively repelling and reporting on attempted intrusions.

For small to medium-sized businesses, a security strategy may consist of a firewall and antivirus software. While that may have been adequate several years ago, a good security strategy should be multi-layered. If your company is connected to the Internet, that alone makes you a target for hackers, network attacks, and malware downloads from insecure browsing and viruses sent via email.

  • Blocking network-based attacks – Firewall, antivirus gateways, secure email, spam protection, and secure web filtering, intrusion detection and prevention
  • Blocking host based attacks – Personal antivirus, personal firewalls, spyware removal, host intrusion prevention
  • Eliminating security vulnerabilities – Patch configuration management and compliance, vulnerability management and penetration testing
  • Safely supporting authorized users – Strong passwords, VPNs, secure remote access, file encryption, ID access and management
  • Tools to minimize business losses and maximize effectiveness – Backup, log management, regulatory compliance tools

Each layer builds upon the previous one and if a layer is “skipped” then your company is vulnerable and at risk. Ideally your company implements each of these layers for a secure network and computing environment, however, it may be cost prohibitive.
