It’s not just a buzzword …

… it’s the top concern for all IT Services and Systems

Malware. Viruses. Phishing. Drive-By Downloads. Ransomware. Hacking.

If you or your IT Team are unfamiliar with these, the cost could be very high. Having a partner that has both a full understanding of current security issues, and how best to address them, will help defend your company and allow you to become proactive against ever-increasing cyber threats now – instead of paying to remediate a breach or exploit later.

Our staff is made up of certified experts in VPN, firewall technology and antivirus solutions. We know how to protect all aspects of your network without compromising the productivity of your users. However; we are also very aware that these technologies are only part of a holistic IT Security Plan.

Evolving threats require evolved solutions, and at Nevtec we consider/implement all of this, and more:

A Note on Ransomware:

According to a 2020 whitepaper from Sophos, the average cost to companies to rectify the impact of a ransomware attack was $761,106. For many small to medium business, this could be devastating.

To keep your devices and files safe from this prevalent threat, you should understand what you’re up against – Nevtec can help!

   Guest network implementation – Create an isolated environment for guest users to keep your corporate environment safe (Helps to prevent Data Breaches, Malware/Virus Infections)
   Monitor against rogue access points – Routine scans for unauthorized access points that could expose your network to unauthorized users

Employee training is a critical part of defense against security threats.

   Group Trainings – Keeping data protected, phishing, spam, web security, and safe handling of downloads
   Resources and Documentation – Provides guidance that keeps employees knowledgeable on current threats
   Safety Drills – Testing employee readiness when confronted with security threats

Guidelines for safety are essential in protecting a network.

   Password Policy – Require frequency of password change, password complexity standards, idle screen locks, and account lockouts
   Application Policy – Implement policy to prevent all unauthorized applications from being launched
   Remote device policies – PIN requirements, encryption, and remote wiping of lost phones and devices

Does your business require certification for:

   Federal Information Processing Standard Publication (FIPS),
