There have been so many high profile hacks reported in the media over the last few years that nearly every organisation is acutely aware of the importance of IT security (Microsoft reported it takes 200 days on average for a company to detect a security breach and a further 80 days to contain it.) in fact, it’s vital to your everyday operations. 

Our approach to security considers how your network is used, who uses it, and every type of interaction users both internal and external will have. Preventive measures are our top priority from the start. It’s well and good being wise after the fact and being able to respond effectively to a security issue, but what makes ComputerWorld a leading IT services provide is our ability to proactively implement the right measures, at the right price.

We offer cloud-based solutions, Physical and Virtual Appliances for web filtering, firewalls and next gen firewalls. Give us a call and we can tell you more.

Email security and archiving

Phishing, viruses, malware and identity fraud are the main enemies here. ComputerWorld offers the best there is in email security. Flexibility is the key, with your employees being able to access their email while at work, on the move, and at home using various devices. Our solutions meet regulatory compliance relevant in industries like financial services, pensions, insurance and healthcare, and ensure your DLP (Data Leakage Prevention) requirements are met. We have solutions that are Cloud-based or on premise with Virtual or Physical Appliances.

Endpoint security

We implement the best endpoint security solutions to deal with viruses, spam, device control, patch and remediation and application control. These include Bitdefender, Sophos, AppSense, Shavlik, Lumension, McAfee, Symantec and Trend Micro.

Integration is simple across a range of servers and systems, making it easy for you to protect your IT assets without being too onerous upon the people who need to use them.

Data encryption

With the theft of sensitive data becoming increasingly common, encryption offers you the chance to render your data useless to anyone without the key to decrypt it.
