Trust the new sales guy..?

One of the biggest threats to a business is not external hacking but in fact it is threats from within.

You can of course mitigate these threats with a bit of common sense in most cases but sometimes it is necessary to take extra precautions.

Using the latest tools we can show you exactly what a PC is being used for. We can show you websites hit, time of the day they were accessed, how long they were accessed for and by whom. Graphical reports will show you at a glance how productive your staff are.

In addition to this, we can stop or track a document that is emailed from a source PC to a destination mailbox. This document may well be innocent enough but you can appreciate that it could also easily be customer list, balance sheet, etc, etc.

Talking rubbish..?

If you have a letter box at home then you will inevitably get junk mail pushed through it. Yes?

The exact same thing applies with email. If you have an email address, someone somewhere will send you some email that you dont want.

With our Antispam Solution we configure your server to ONLY accept email from a 'clearing house'. Any email I send you goes to them first for checking. If its deemed clean they send it on. If its deemed suspicious or just plain dirty (as it contains a virus) then its trapped in a mailbox for your review.

Of course it is fully customisable with your own White & Blacklists that can be managed from an easy to use web portal.

Infected..?

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
― Benjamin Franklin

Viruses and malware are a significant risk to businesses both small and large. In the past they were used as a vessel to send mass phishing emails across a large network of computers.

As internet speeds have improved they have moved on from this and now mainly steal account names, passwords and other data. More recently, they install a small program on your pc that is used to encrypt your data and hold you ransom to it.

We cannot stress enough the importance of deploying a licensed and up to date antivirus program.
