Online Security

The security of your IT systems and your data is rapidly becoming one of the hardest things to guarantee.  Every day, criminals discover new ways to get in to your systems, mess with or steal your data, or compromise your hardware or broadband connection.  Attacks can be mounted by anonymous hackers thousands of miles away, with the Authorities almost powerless to act. Active prevention is the only course of action.

SJG Digital offer a comprehensive service to protect you from becoming a victim of cyber crime.  We can provide you with everything from a basic security health check to a full test of your electronic and physical systems. Simply by being connected to the Internet generates a risk, but this is controllable and we have partnered with leading manufacturers to ensure we can offer you world-class solutions to help you to mitigate any threat.

From basic security appliances to full-featured identity-aware networks, security is at the centre of our solutions and built into our working practices.  SJG Digital can ensure that your network security is as subtle as you want it to be, providing business intelligence to help you make informed decisions and safely manage your assets.

Why not order a security health check to find out exactly what is running in the background on your network?

The Internet can be a dangerous place to be.

Headlines which reveal another scandal where personal data has found its way from a system that's assumed to be a secure haven into the wrong hands are now common occurrences. Of course this can happen by someone leaking the information or selling the information, but it's often because a network has been hacked or compromised remotely in some way and the data stolen.  More often that not, this type of attack attack is undetected and it is often days, weeks or months before discovery. In that time irretrievable damage can be done.

With more and more data being shared or available on the Internet, we really need to ensure that people holding our data are safeguarding it as well as ensure that we can prevent our own data leaking out from our own systems.

This can easily be achieved with a dedicated security appliance and it won't break the bank. Few Internet Service Providers provide a dedicated security appliance; for some, the more of their service you use, the more they can charge you so its not in their commercial interests to provide a more expensive appliance when they can mass produce something cheaper.

Thankfully, a good security appliance is not out of reach of the smaller business and even home-based business; bank-grade security can now easily be installed which ensures that you're protected against many threats. More than just a firewall, a dedicated security appliance will help to protect you from spam and has a built-in anti-virus and intrusion prevention system amongst other things.

For home offices, a security appliance is particularly useful in protecting the family from the Very Bad Things that other devices will happily let your children view.

We can work with anyone to ensure that your children can be given reasonable free rein to use the internet whilst you are safe in the knowledge that their internet use is protected, monitored and controlled at all times.

Next-generation security appliances don't come associated with next-generation price tags. We're more than happy to help you make an informed decision about what is best for you so please feel free to call in or drop us a line to discuss the best solution for you or arrange a health check and we'll come out and scan your network for you.

 

 

 

Security Software

How many people do you know that don't use Anti-Virus on their PC these days?  Its almost a given that PCs need some form anti-virus protection.  But what about if you own a Mac?  The days of "Mac's can't get viruses" are long gone.

With so many different anti-virus products on the market, which one do you choose?  Do you choose the one that pops up when you browse the internet telling you that it has detected that your Anti-Virus is out of date?  Fake Anti-Virus is as a growing problem too so you need something that is intelligent enough to stop these attacks too.

"I don't use the Internet much so I just have a free one" is something we hear a lot, often when we visit a new customer because their computer or their broadband has slowed to a crawl.  Inevitably, the free product hasn't been up to scratch and it has let something in.  Which has let something else in.  And something else after that.

Its important to choose something which provides you with a healthy degree of protection which keeps itself up to date with obsessive regularity.  Something that is low impact on your system is also crucial as you still need your system to perform at its best so that you can do everything that you need to.

We've tried and tested many different products and we can help you make an informed decision on which one is right for you.  By combining Anti-Virus on your computer with Anti-Virus on your Internet connection, we'll help you create a tough nut to crack so that you can get on with what you need to do.

Small Business Online Security Workshops

We're seeing a huge increase in demand for knowledge from many of our Small Business and Education customers when it comes to protecting themselves, their staff and their data so we've produce the Small Business Online Security Workshop to meet this demand.

Far from being a conventional course, this workshop will provide information in a non-technical manner to non-technical delegates; the aim being to help IT users within the Small Business and Education sectors to make well-informed decisions on how to add security with the minimum amount of impact.

The workshop is held over a half-day and includes practical demonstrations showing the ways in which users and data can be compromised as well as showing how simple it can be to prevent these breaches or attacks from getting through.

A follow-up service is also available to support delegates after the workshop as they start to make changes to their systems.

The course dates and booking facilities are available on this page.
