Managed Network Security

Worry Free Managed Network Security

IT security landscape is vastly different from years past where antivirus and a basic firewall solved most problems. Attacks are becoming much more sophisticated, and attack patterns are emerging and changing with increasing frequency. Relying on virus signatures and stateful packet inspection firewalls without subscription services no longer works. A layered approach is necessary to ensure a secure computing environment. Threats entering the network can cause considerable damage, from creating downtime for users at a minimum, to causing data loss and financial compromise in a worst case scenario.
