The Importance of Cyber Security for Australian Companies

Almost every week there are stories in the news about identity theft or data breaches. While these stories are typically warnings for consumers to update their passwords and to avoid falling for phishing scams, they’re often caused by poor cyber security measures from companies in Australia and around the world.

In the past many businesses have believed that cyber security was easy to manage. As long you had a basic firewall and an antivirus package in place, your data would be safe. But hackers are getting smarter and data breaches far more sophisticated. It takes more than your modem’s standard firewall to keep cyber attacks at bay – no matter the size of your business.

Types of Managed IT Security Services

So what should your business have to keep it safe from cyber attacks? Below are some of the Managed IT Services we offer that can benefit Australian companies in their quest for cyber security.

Managed Firewall

A firewall is a critical component to your business’ cyber security. But in order for it to be effective it needs to be more than just your standard router’s firewall. A Managed Firewall is the ideal choice, as it allows your Managed IT Security Services provider to monitor your network traffic, ensuring anything suspicious is quickly identified.

Disaster Recovery

Hackers aren’t just interested in stealing data – they can also corrupt files, destroy records and shutdown IT systems, leading to devastating results for your business. By having an online backup and disaster recovery plan, you can prevent a lot of pain for your business.

Endpoint Protection

Do you know how many devices are connected to your network at one time? Most people use multiple devices for work, so it could be at least two per employee. That’s a lot of potential entry points for hackers to gain access through. Endpoint protection helps to prevent this by offering security, monitoring and more for these devices.

Managed Wi-Fi

Keeping your network secure shouldn’t mean limiting the convenience of easy access for your employees and visiting clients. Wi-Fi is a valuable tool for modern companies in Australia. That’s why Managed Wi-Fi is a preferred solution for cyber security, as it offers convenient guest access, along with a secure, integrated network.

How These Services Help with Cyber Security

Cyber security isn’t a simple package, despite what some companies would have you believe. It’s important that you have the right services, but what’s just as crucial is that they’re set up properly and closely monitored by an experienced team of IT professionals.

The benefit of Managed IT Services for your security is that you get just that – a team who can monitor your network, staying alert for any unusual activity.
