What happens if we have a cyber breach?

Prevention is better than cure, it's best to have a proactive solution in place to prevent a cyber breach. If you haven't got a good cybersecurity plan in place and you find yourself subject to a breach, we can provide disaster recovery solutions to help get your business back on track.

What is an onsite firewall?

An onsite firewall helps to protect your internal infrastructure against external attacks and filters the items that can enter your internal network.

Do I need anti-virus on my business mobile?

Yes, basic anti-virus on either iOS or Android is recommended as a mobile device has the capability of browsing the internet and downloading files.

Do I need anti-virus on my server?

Yes, your server will need anti-virus installed as a server will handle files from users and sometimes users can remote on to the device and download files or open files on the server.

What is the difference between anti-spam and anti-virus?

Spam is related to inbound emails, such as unwanted junk mail. Viruses are what can infect your PC or notebook device, though sometimes an email can also contain viruses. This can be handled effectively by having our anti-spam service installed as this will also tackle inbound viruses as well as unwanted email spam.

What’s the difference between free anti-virus and business anti-virus?

Free anti-virus will provide basic protection for home users, a better than nothing approach, whereas business anti-virus is a much more sophisticated total coverage solution to fully protect both PCs and notebooks as well as any onsite servers your organisation may have.

Why do I need Anti-virus?

Due to the vast amount of information and data being shared between companies and staff as well as downloads from the internet, it is easier to have anti-virus in place within your business. Without a good solution in place, your enterprise would be subject to multiple infections.

Why do I need Cyber Security?

Businesses can be attacked by either a random cyber attack or a targeted attack. For this reason, it is very dangerous for a business not to have a cybersecurity plan in place. Please speak to your account manager to arrange a full proposal.
