Today’s internet creates an amazing amount of challenges for companies. A simple firewall and antivirus on the workstation is just not good enough anymore. No matter how hard you try and educate your staff someone will always click the email or download the file with the virus.
The infections are getting even more serious too. What do you do if all your marketing materials get encrypted and the culprit wants thousands of dollars for the key to get them back? What do you do? These types of things are becoming common place and it will only get worse.
Unified concepts can help design a cost effective solution to help.
Next generation firewalls are now a must. By integrating antivirus, anti-malware, content filtering, real time scanning, together with a workstation and server based protection solution we can eliminate a majority of the risk. You then need to evaluate your policies to determine if what you allow users to do is worth the added risk. Many of the following user options have security solutions available to help. It is always a balancing act. If allowing the user an option increases productivity in may be worth the effort and cost to secure that feature. Otherwise eliminating it as a user option is always the most cost effective.

The ability to lock down every port on your network, validate the user and device type and guarantee the device meets your standards before it is allowed to see your network is possible.
