Improve Security

Are you taking chances with your data? What about your customers’ data? How vulnerable are you to a clever hacker? What about an embittered employee? Most small businesses out there maintain a database containing some information, and almost all of them are sitting ducks for computer criminals.

Last year, certain discount retailers and more than one credit card company fell victim to a rather elementary computer data scam. Some offices of the Government were hacked into and millions of social security numbers were copied. If multinational corporations and the government are vulnerable, what do you think a criminal could do to your small business?

Pending legislation in more than one state will make it the law that business owners are held responsible for protecting their customers’ data. These laws will only continue to spread in the future. That’s because data is often the same as identity. Can you imagine having your customers’ private information stolen, then being fined millions on top of it, not to mention customers losing faith in doing business with you? That could shut your business down in no time. That’s why it’s imperative you do everything in your power to protect your data today.

Get in touch, and our technicians can help you identify the data you most need to protect, and then help you deploy the appropriate systems to ensure it stays safe. We can install tools, like firewalls, to help protect your network from outsiders, and anti-virus and anti-spyware to protect against outside sources — such as an employee’s USB drive — from infecting your system. We can even help you establish security privileges to define who can access specific files and folders.

Through web filtering, we can control which sites your employees may access, protecting you against security threats that come through malicious websites. Our SPAM management tools will help protect you (and your servers) from lost productivity and the potential threats caused by SPAM.
