Keep your network safe

Today access to the internet and E-Mail is a necessity to every business. For this reason it is extremely important to make sure your network and IT infrastructure is secure from any potential attacks.

MTC Solutions have found that 70% of Businesses audited one way or another have security holes within the network. For this reason we offer a no obligation free IT Infrastructure Audit.

The most common aspects of IT security are anti-virus, anti-spyware, firewalls, and anti-spam solutions. MTC Solutions recommend locking down all user PCs/laptops so that users are not local administrators. MTC Solutions will address all areas and close any open threats to your IT infrastructure.

securityViruses & Malware

We know how frustrating it can be for a user when their PC becomes infected with a virus. Working can grind to a halt and in extreme cases business critical data can be lost.

A majority of Anti-Virus software deployments within a business one way or another still leave holes which could be of threat to your network. We have identified the major reason being the Anti-Virus pattern files being outdated and the second major issue being no Anti-Spyware protection built in to the solution.

Spyware is software that has been installed on your computer without your knowledge. Spyware can slow your machine down significantly but more importantly spyware can be used to gather private information and may be used fraudulently. MTC Solutions can scan your computers for spyware and set up regular audits to ensure a secure system.

MTC Solutions can deploy suitable antivirus solutions in your business, giving you maximum protection against attack. Many people are unaware that this can be centrally controlled for your business, giving you one price to pay and the peace of mind that all your PCs are up-to-date and secure.

Close your internal network from the outside world

A firewall is a part of a computer system or network that is designed to block unauthorized access while permitting authorized communications. It is a device configured to permit, deny, encrypt and decrypt network traffic both inbound and outbound between different private/public domains/networks.

Firewalls are essential when connecting to the internet but only of use if correctly configured. Often people create holes in firewalls to troubleshoot network connectivity without realising how vulnerable these changes have become. MTC Solutions can make sure your firewalls are running effectively and secure.

How will we secure your network?

We will check the configuration and rules on your firewall and advise you if the presents or lack of particular rules could lead to potential exploits into your network. MTC Solutions will document all internal software which may require inbound/outbound network connectivity to the internet and verify that rules are implemented in the correct fashion.

In most cases all outbound rules on corporate firewalls allow any traffic from the local network out. In most cases client PCs only require internet connectivity. Leaving all unused outbound traffic open leaves a big security flaw in your network. MTC Solutions will work with you to close every possible hole to prevent your networks becoming a victim of unauthorized access.
