Add-on details:

Endpoint Protection

This is a more modern term for anti-virus running on the local machine. As the term implies the protection is now on several levels. This usually consists of anti-virus/anti-malware, web protection, local firewalling, and identity protection.

Mail Security

We have a few combinations of offerings depending on how you want to deal with the deluge of e-mail your domain will be subjected to. We can empower you with your own access and control over a hosted AV/AS solution, or run combinations of the most efficient tools on your own mail server to simply reject and/or deal with problematic e-mail

Web Security

We have signed up with OpenDNS to provide VERY effective web filtering service. This is one of the few things that actually stops modern forms of ransomware such as the Cryptolocker or Cryptorbit dead in their tracks, as it blocks access to the encryption key server. It protects machines both on and off the local network. See here for in-depth details.

E-mail Encryption

Do you realise that sending an un-encrypted e-mail is like sending a transparent envelope in the post? It’s contents can be intercepted and read quite easily. Our offering is very easy to use and doesn’t rely on complex software matching the other end. Anyone can receive an encrypted e-mail from you with minimal fuss.

Complex

This subject is pretty complex and there are numerous technologies available. We can provide solutions that are scalable from home or satellite office use through to larger environments of 100s of users. The best thing is to drop us a line and we can talk you through the different solutions and approaches and help minimise your risk/exposure in an affordable fashion.
