Our approach to Cyber Security is multidimensional that looks at the technology being used, the people that are using that technology and policies that safe guard your business, your staff and your equipment.
Benefits of Security Software
IT security software scans and detects security attacks in your system. Since there are various types of security attacks, there are also various types of security products to target each one of them. The real advantages of IT security software solutions directly correspond to the consequences of not having one. The internet is not a secure place and with more and more operations managed by SaaS solutions, prioritizing your entire organization’s protection is imperative.
By understanding your business, we tailor a service to provide maximum protection from cyber threats that is robust for your business and provides a quick and efficient response to suspected breaches.
Prevention of viruses, spyware and identity theft.
Hackers are finding trickier ways to create viruses that may pose as an anti-virus software, email from a friend, or imposter bank websites. Once they infect your computer, they can drastically slow down your processing speed, delete critical data, and damage your computer or network systems. Identity theft and spyware can also be prevented by using the software to safeguard the confidential personal information such as passwords, financial data, credit card numbers, and social security numbers of your system’s users. In fact, 80% of cyber attacks are caused by weak or stolen passwords, hence, it must be secured carefully.
Security for clients.
Give your clients peace of mind by making them aware your system is protected. At a time where cybersecurity is crucial, this benefit potentially increases your sales and marketability. The security and safety of their sensitive personal information are some of the customer’s primary concerns which make them hesitant to share their information and make transactions online. With that, having security solutions assures your customers that their information is safe with you.
Protection of valuable information.
Information is one of the most valuable assets of any organisation. Hence, its protection is a vital part of your IT infrastructure. Loss of critical information caused by data corruption can be detrimental to your business. Encryption and limiting access to sensitive information are only some of the aspects that are handled by information-technology security.
Reduce costs of development.
Implementing a security solution early on prevents incurring high costs along the way. While it’s never too late to install a security software in your system, the sooner you have it, the better. If you choose to do it later, you’ll have more codes to modify. Inadvertent data loss and retrieval may also cause you a huge sum of money and amount of time when not prevented.
One of the highly used methods to prevent unauthorised access to a computer, file, folder, and system is protecting it with a password. In most cases, many people use an easy-to-remember password such as birthdays and family names (and in many cases, the word “password” itself) which also makes it easy to guess for cybercriminals. Furthermore, many reuse the same password across various platforms that exposes risks to all your accounts even when only one is compromised. On the other hand, a unique, hard-to-guess password in each account is hard to remember. This is where password protection security comes handy in generating strong passwords and storing them securely.
Spyware, also called malware and adware, are software programs installed on your computer without your consent. An anti-spyware software is used to detect their presence on your computer or network and prevent or remove their installations. Removing them is crucial because they “spy” and record your personal information from your computer, as well as computing behaviours such as your documents, web browsing, and keystrokes. This can tailor advertising on your computer, change its configuration, and even send your personal details to another remote computer.
Firewalls filter data that enters or leaves a computer or network by blocking or restricting network ports from viruses and hackers. It also serves as a barrier between a trusted and untrusted network by only allowing traffic that’s defined by the firewall policy to enter the network.
Antivirus software is designed to prevent, search, detect and remove malicious software or malware such as viruses, worms, scareware, and Trojans. With the constant onslaught of new viruses, these programs are often updated to enable the system to check new threats, removing any detected malicious codes or infected files, and providing you an overview of your computer’s health.
