Data Security

Ensuring business continuity

Protect and secure your business data

A Data Security strategy is an essential component of ensuring the continuity of your business. We can assist in implementing a strategy which is based on five key areas.

Internet Security

Malicious attacks via the internet and email are becoming increasingly common, often compromising data security and resulting in financial loss and legal liability. One method of defending against these attacks is the use of a firewall device utilising a layer of targeted features which can be easily and centrally managed.

Some of the key features of a firewall device include:

  • Automatic blocking of known malicious or inappropriate web sites.
  • Restricting access to web sites, either specifically or by category.
  • Control internet use and maintain employee productivity.
  • Protection against attacks contained within emails masquerading as legitimate documents.
  • An additional layer of of antivirus filtering which takes place before the internet traffic reaches a computer or server.
  • Protection against ‘Ransomware’ attacks using a cloud based ‘sandbox’ to analyse the potential of incoming threats.
  • Prevents the use of unauthorised third-party software to protect against infection.
  • Reports to keep track of how the internet is being used.

Data Backup and Recovery

Having a backup and recovery strategy in place is crucial in ensuring data security so that data can be easily recovered if required. We can formulate a strategy for your business which utilises both on-site as well as Cloud Backup and incorporates regular test data restores to verify the integrity of your data.

Anti-Spam Filtering

Filtering your email for malicious content prior to it reaching your network will greatly reduce the possibility of data loss or corruption.

End-Point Anti-Virus

Real time anti-virus scanning on an endpoint such as a server of PC will reduce the possibility of virus infection.

Secure User Access

Ensuring that access to your network is closely controlled and managed will reduce the possibility of unauthorised intrusion or malicious damage to your data.
