Our IT Department is a trusted IT services partner that is also an expert in Cyber Security. We will provide your business with the following latest Network Security technologies and solutions that will mitigate the threat of a cyber attack and help you to achieve regulatory compliance:

Updates and patching.
Unpatched operating systems and applications will lead to an increase in vulnerabilities on your network and open a window of opportunity to savvy cyber criminals that could prove to be devastating.

We’ll provide a scheduled recurring update and patching service for your servers, PCs, networking equipment and applications that will keep your systems up to date and mitigate the threat of a Cyberattack.

Email security.
91% of all hacking attacks by cyber criminals begin with a phishing or spear-phishing attempt that originates from your inbox. Failure to mitigate these threats will result in the loss of sensitive information that could destroy your reputation and cause irreversible damage to your business operations.

We provide the following proven email security solutions that will form the ultimate defence against advanced threats and data loss:

  • Targeting threat protection
  • Secure messaging and encryption
  • Data leakage prevention
  • Spam and multi-layered malware screening
  • Secured file sharing
  • Cloud Email backup and archiving solutions

Antivirus and malware.

On average, 200,000 new malware samples are identified and captured every day. Malware and viruses continue to evolve at an exponential rate, which makes it essential for you to maintain the latest Anti-virus, Malware and Ransomware protection on your network.

We’ll provide your business with the latest Endpoint protection solution that identifies and blocks malware, infections and zero zero-day attacks before they arrive on your network.

We offer on premise or cloud-based endpoint protection that will protect all of your devices from a simplified management console.

Two factor authentication (2fa)
Think you’ve got a strong password?
In a hacking experiment for the technology website Ars Technica, hackers managed to crack 14,800 cryptographically hashed passwords, averaging 6 password cracks a minute including passwords that used 16 random characters. This was achieved in less than an hour.

Even the most highly encrypted passwords offer a limited amount of protection, that’s why any business that handles personally identifiable information on their network should use two-factor authentication as an extra layer of security.

We can help you to add a second layer of authentication to protect your applications and systems when your password is compromised. The most popular forms of 2 factor authentication include:

  • Receiving a unique pin number via text /email
  • Hardware tokens
  • A dedicated smartphone app
  • Biometric authentication

Staff Awareness training
A growing number of security breaches are a result of social engineering. Compromising the user has been identified by cyber criminals as an easier way to attack your network and obtain personally identifiable information because many end users lack awareness and understanding of the latest security threats.

Our IT Department offers one-to-one and group training sessions that will develop and improve cyber security and information security awareness in the workplace. We will educate your employees through a range of insightful learning modules that will make them aware of both new and existing cyber security threats.

Remember, if your staff are more secure then so is your business.

Network Penetration testing

Network Penetration testing (or Pen Testing) is a form of ‘Ethical hacking’ that is conducted onsite by a highly skilled security professional. Testing involves a series of aggressive hacking tests and vulnerability scans which are designed to expose any configuration holes that could allow a Cyber Criminal to gain access to your system.

Cyber Essentials certification
We’ll help your organisation to become Cyber Essentials certified. The Cyber essentials certification is a government backed industry recognised accreditation that demonstrates your commitment to enforcing the highest standards of Network security and will enable you to tender for government contracts.

We offer affordable certification packages that include a fully comprehensive audit of your existing Network security setup and a post audit report that lists our recommendations for achieving your chosen Cyber Essentials certification. The certifications are awarded by the official accreditation body Crest.
