Many issues have been caused by bad security training for users where they visit dodgy websites on work computers or click seemingly innocent links in emails purported to come from their friends and colleagues.

"A few clicks and their files are being encrypted in background!"

And it doesn't stop with that one computer either. Viruses, malware and ransomware start spreading across the internal network and outside the organisation via email address books. It's plain to see why the recent NHS attack was easily one of the biggest the UK has suffered.

So businesses and organisations big and small are being targeted. How on earth can a business protect itself from these threats? Well, this is something we work on every single day for our clients, and we have a specialist security team who keeps them safe and secure.

It's called Unified Threat Management, or UTM for short. We supply, configure and manage all the networking and security products a business needs to defend itself against multiple security threats. This includes:

  • Malware protection

  • Alerts and blocking of suspicious network traffic

  • Secure encrypted traffic between locations

  • Content filtering catered for top sites or full lists database trusted by industry leading partners including Cisco, Citrix, Virgin media, Fujitsu, SolarWinds, Aruba networks and many others

  • Web safe-searches

The network security would also combine multiple layers of defences at the edge of, and inside, the network itself. Each security layer implements policies, controls and users who are authorised to gain access to network resources, but malicious actors are blocked from carrying out exploits and threats.

The clever thing about the equipment we use from Cisco and others is that it's cloud based but allows you to grow a private network inside your business.

Everything on your network can be monitored, configured and defended by our security teams and, like it shows in the video, it reduces your equipment needs and subsequent IT budgets.
