Firewall IntegrationThe first step to creating a barrier between your business network and hackers is to install a firewall – software and hardware one. A software firewall is integrated into Windows operating systems and our techs can configure the firewall remotely and update it with security patches regularly. The second option, recommended by FCC is to have a hardware firewall in front of your server. Some ITs call it an external firewall. This piece of an equipment encrypts information going through your office network. Secure Networks ITC is an official Cisco partner. This means you can buy and protect your IT network with latest state of the art Cisco firewalls at the most affordable prices in Los Angeles County.
Anti-Virus ProtectionTo be clear here, when we say virus we refer to all malicious pieces of code that can steal, infect, corrupt or delete your data; malware, spam, worms, phishing, adware, trojans, spyware, and ransomware.
Did you know?
The average amount demanded after a ransomware attack in 2017 is $1,077.
Biometric Security & Camera SystemsUntil now, we only mentioned web-based techniques to protect your IT environment from cyber attacks. But can you be 100% sure that your data can’t be jeopardized by direct access to your premises? Affordable and a very effective way to detect potential threads is to install surveillance cameras in the office and server room. Cameras are usually paired with motion sensors, so you can immediately be aware of unauthorized access to your IT room. The system will automatically send you an email or SMS with complete logs, so you can react in real time. More sophisticated solution to prevent an attack on your IT system is to install biometric locks or scanners. And believe us it’s not some CSI technology, at least it’s not anymore. A few years ago, biometric security was topic reserved just for SF movies but recently many business owners decided to give it a try. Guess the main reason, the prices are going down.
HIPPA & NIST Compliancy SupportHIPPA or the Health Portability and Accountability Act is set of rules and policies that regulate manipulation of sensitive data and ways to protect medical records. If you are in Health industry this standard is mandatory. To be in HIPPA compliance your business has to define security measures for every process during patient treatment, operation and payments. Secure Networks ITC security specialists helped a dozen of small businesses that are subcontractors or associates to many hospitals in San Diego to achieve HIPPA compliance (link to HIPPA page). You can rest assured that our team will conduct a full audit of your IT process and write detailed procedures in regard of HIPPA privacy and security rule (technical, physical and administrative safeguards), document process of remediation and do staff training.
