Technology Security is Everything

Computer security is important. Vitally important. We can’t really stress network security and wireless security enough. One incident, if of great severity, can destroy your entire business. From a technical perspective network security consists of the provisions and policies adopted by a network administrator to prevent and monitor unauthorized access, misuse, modification, or denial of a computer network and network-accessible resources. From a business perspective it means your data is safe and accessible only to authorized personnel.

Network security and wireless security has become one of the single most important jobs of the IT support staff in the modern connected computer environment. Not only are there dangers from anonymous hackers but there are potential rivals that will target your computers with attacks. What are you doing about network security?

Security Methods

Firewalls and Anti-Virus

One of the first lines of network security used against common attacks is simply firewalls and anti-virus programs. We offer a wide variety of solutions for various sized businesses. If even a single virus slips through your computer security your entire network can be completely compromised and you might not even know it.

One infected email is all it takes.

Mobile Security

Smartphones and tablets are increasingly being used as a means of planning and organizing work and private life. If you haven’t thought about Mobile network security then you need to start. Indeed, smartphones collect and compile an increasing amount of sensitive information to which access must be controlled to protect the privacy of the user and the intellectual property of the company. We can help keep your mobile data secure.

My life is on my smartphone.

A better name for a smartphone is pocket computer. It’s a computer, it carries important and confidential data, and keeping it secure is just as important as keeping your network secure. Don’t wait, call us today and see how we can help provide wireless security to your smartphone network.


Many threats to your network security come from easily avoided employee errors. They fall prey to social attacks that allow intruders access to their passwords. They have weak passwords. Confidence artists have moved to computers and your employees can unwittingly give them access to your most important information.

I guess I always knew that my password was bad, it was just easier for me that way.

We can help with a simple seminar to explain good password practices and how to avoid social scams. You can have the best security technology in the world but if your employees are handing out passwords it’s all to no avail.
