Managed I.T. Security

Did you know...
Cyber breaches against small businesses make up around 81% of network attacks today?

Hackers are everywhere and work around the clock, so why would we not do the same? Whether it's mid-morning or middle of the night our team is monitoring items such as logs, phishing emails, and security events for your network and Microsoft 365 environments around the clock.

Network security has moved beyond simple antivirus software to a robust suite of security tools and platforms. With over 15 years of experience, we keep one important fact in mind, network security is an ever-evolving field and we continuously study, research, train, and adapt our network security tools and services to stay on top of the ever-growing number of threats facing small businesses today.

Defense in Depth

Network security should be the top priority for any business. Our layered approach to small business network security has been designed from years of supporting small businesses and employs a “defense-in-depth” strategy. This is a vaguely cool and military-sounding phrase which means since every barrier you put up to guard against something will one day have a breach, several barriers are needed.

These barriers translate into a set of layers that make up a complex and protective “shield” around the network. Each layer is dedicated to a specific aspect of the network, and each has its own set of protections and security controls.

Our Managed Security Service Includes

Advanced Firewalls

A UTM Firewall appliance, or Unified Threat Management Firewall, is the first line of defense when protecting your network from internet-borne threats and outside attackers. Typical hardware installed by your Internet Provider is not enough to effectively protect a network. Unified Threat Management (UTM) is a suite of security software integrated into a single platform, upholding consistent security policies and protection across an organization.


Endpoint Security

All our managed endpoints are equipped with an advanced security platform. Leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning capabilities, it provides automated malware prevention, application and script control, memory protection, and device policy enforcement, all monitored by our 24/7 security team. Which is tech talk for, “it predicts and prevents cyber-attacks with unparalleled effectiveness, ease of use and minimal system impact.”

Network S.i.e.m.

Our SecureIT and ProtectIT plans come with our Network S.I.E.M. or Security Information and Event Management platform. This system works by collecting log and event information from your network where it is examined for malicious traffic and blacklisted I.P. addresses. We then automatically add block rules to your firewall to prevent traffic from these locations from accessing your network or computers.


Smart Networks

Upgrading to smart network hardware allows for insight into your business network which was not available in the past.  From diagnostics, traffic monitoring, and in-depth network logs, we are able to get a much better understanding of the inner workings of your network traffic for faster diagnostics, preventative maintenance, and increased security. Additionally, segmented WiFi networks allow for a better-designed network for your guests, mobile devices, and other internet-connected devices.
