Cyber Security is on the minds of everyone with a business to run. New threats are created and / or evolving on a daily basis. Wars are not fought just in the air, sea, or on ground, but now also in the digital arena. Is your business exposed? These threats come in many forms such as:

VirusesCyber Crime

SPAM

Malware

Ransomware

Hacking / Cyber Attacks

Spyware

Here are just some of the multiple layers of security we offer

Open DNS Umbrella- Ransomware such as the Cryptolocker mostly comes in through email (links) and now coming in through web sites (legitimate sites too!). What it does is encrypt all of the data on your local machine and anything it is attached to (network drives, etc.) and sends the decryption key to a server on the internet that will hold it ransom until you pay them (cyber terrorists) money (in bitcoins). The only way to revert from it is backups or pay them. Open DNS Umbrella is a service that sits between your business and the internet that will monitor all traffic (but it does not slow it down) and shut down any suspicious activity (in the case of the Cryptolocker it will not allow the decryption key to be sent). It also allows for content filtering and reporting so if you wanted to filter traffic such as streaming audio/ video, social media, job search sites, pornography, etc. it will allow you to remove access even if it is setup for groups (some to have access while others not allowed). The main purpose of the service is to help prevent malware and ransomware (EVEN if a laptop is taken home and brought back in). The additional value is that it will also allow the filtering and reporting (a good example of reporting would be if your internet was slow, we could look at a report and see which user(s) are using what internet services and shut it down). There is currently not a single source of protection from Ransomware (Cryptolocker, Cryptowall, etc.) so ask yourself what would it cost the business if we DON'T subscribe and protect your office.
