By investing in a Managed Services plan, businesses are maximizing their ability to keep their network systems secure.

Unified Threat Management (UTM)

One UTM appliance secures your entire network from intrusions, viruses and spam as well as providing a single management platform for local and remote users.

A VPN allows remote users to access your corporate network through a secure encrypted connection. Your users will be able to access all of the network services from home or on the road as easily as if they were at the office.

Unlike traditional virus protection that blocks viruses once they get to your computer, a UTM device blocks viruses before they even enter your network, giving you an added layer of security.

Increase employee productivity by limiting instant messaging, file sharing, streaming media and web surfing.

The Reality Of Data Breaches

In past years, hacking was the leading cause of data breaches, followed by human error. These reported breaches resulted in millions of records being compromised. The true number of breaches are unknown, since a large percentage are never reported.

The majority of these losses could have been prevented if the company had adequate network security in place.

What Are My Risks?

The number of data breaches rises significantly every year, which compromise the private records of millions of Americans.

Computer crime against small and medium-sized businesses is understated and under-realized. As a result of increasing attacks, it is important for all businesses to know and fully understand the proper steps and procedures for preventing a data breach.

The profitable data theft market is now estimated to be over one trillion dollars annually. Nearly all business are vulnerable to identity-related frauds.
