Security is a multifaceted issue that must be addressed to avoid abuse to your network from hackers and employees.
While you are connected to the Internet your network is open to the public unless it is protected by a firewall. Networks that are permanently connected to the Internet via broadband are particularly vulnerable to malicious attacks from hackers and virus infection. A well configured firewall will block uninvited visitors whilst allowing limited access to authorized users and services.
Within a network sensitive information such as personnel records and accounts data can be protected by configuring permissions that only allow access for those who are authorized. Passwords to logon to the network should be changed on a regular basis and should be sufficiently complex that they cannot be guessed easily.
We can advise on all aspects of network security, deploy firewalls and implement a security policy to protect your data and systems.
