Our primary mission at Asia E-Pros has always been to make sure that your technology works for you, not against you. This includes network security. We want your security architecture to be a stable platform upon which you can build your success, not a rigid box that hinders you in your work.
All of our security services are designed to ensure the integrity of your systems and protect your productivity.
The security of your business is very important. All of your surveillance cameras and equipment, as well as control sensors in your building, can be connected through structured cabling solutions.
An anti-virus program scans for known viruses and quarantines them when they’re found. It’s a more active type of security program in that it looks for threats constantly. It prevents these viruses from spreading throughout the system and infecting other computers or servers. Antivirus programs can run on the computer and on the server level. They provide protection from viruses that enter your network through USB devices, CDs, or via hidden viruses in email attachments or on phishing sites that firewalls don’t catch.
Data access protection covers a different area of security. First, it locks down your most sensitive data so that only certain users can access it. Data should always be secured in this way. Only those who need access to it should have it. This is especially true for information such as customer information that includes names, addresses, phone numbers, and banking/credit card information. Your HR records also need to be secured. This will stop employees who have no business accessing that information from accidentally doing so. It also prevents those who are actively seeking to harm your company from gaining access to this data. If an account is compromised, unless it’s a high-level account with access privileges, the hacker won’t be able to access much.
Security awareness training is another form of network security that is often overlooked. While relying on security apps to protect your data is fine, it’s even better if you prevent threats from ever reaching your network. Teaching your employees how to recognize phishing scams and how to protect their accounts is just as important as having a strong firewall and antivirus scanner. Many threats to your system are actually introduced by employees who accidentally click a phishing link or open an infected email attachment. By teaching employees how to recognize and respond to these threats, you can make your network much safer.
Network security is more than just protecting your network. You must also secure your servers and your individual workstations. Everything connected to the internet should be protected. This includes devices that use your WiFi networks. It can be difficult to keep all of these different pieces of technology secure because they all have different security requirements.
Now that you know the scale of true network protection, as you can guess, your network cannot be completely protected by a single security application. Therefore, it is important to layer your defenses.
Your network must be protected with a firewall, antivirus software, accessibility management, and antimalware program – to name a few. While each one works differently, when configured to work together, they form a shield around your entire business network that keeps hackers, viruses, malware, and even malicious employees at bay. Pretty neat!
Detecting and eliminating security risks is necessary for protecting productivity and the survival of your company. Find out how Asia E-Pros’s network security solutions can give you peace of mind today.
The strategy, tactics, and software that safeguard your business systems from cyberattacks are referred to as network security. These components work together to reduce the chance of your company’s data being stolen. If your network is attacked, it will slow down or grind to a halt, affecting your capacity to trade, meet compliance standards, or even function regularly.
Asia E-Pros’ comprehensive network security plan comprises the following features:
Asia E-Pros employs a variety of software technologies to assist you in maintaining strong network security. Antivirus software, network analytics, firewalls, virtual private networks (VPNs), AI-enabled behavioral monitoring, data encryption, and other technologies are chief among them.
Our team consists of seasoned IT network security experts with years of experience in the field. Our knowledge has taught us that there is no one-size-fits-all answer. Your business and security requirements are distinct, and for any solution to be entirely effective, it must be tailored to you. That is exactly what we do. We sit down with you and look through your network and security solutions currently in place. Then we look for ways to improve your security and computer network’s general efficiency. Sometimes that could mean that a few tweaks are all you need, while other times it implies a far more extensive overhaul is in order.
The security of a network can be visualized as a series of distinct walls. A wall surrounds each computer or other equipment. The server is then surrounded by a wall. The major network security wall protects all of these lesser walls. Your firewall, antivirus, antimalware, and access control are all part of your total network security. This protection is intended to keep out people who do not have access to your network or are attempting to break into it.
Your network system’s firewall is the most important component. It protects your network from the internet and all of the threats that lurk there. It can also restrict apps from sending information out and inhibits suspicious inbound traffic. Firewalls can also operate as proxy servers, masking IP addresses and blocking all incoming traffic except that which is approved.
Network security comprises programs (various security tools) that monitor your network and look for unusual activity. Employees checking in at strange hours or accounts attempting to access data they don’t have permission to are examples of these actions. Regularly reviewing these logs can also give you insight into how your network resources are being used, allowing you to adjust your policies and processes to make the most of them.
Which brings us to the next level, which is access to data. This is frequently the main focus on the server level. The creation of multiple roles for users and the assignment of permissions to those roles are all part of server security. Data must be stored behind tight walls to which only authorised individuals have access. On a server, offering access to those who need it and cancelling that access when they don’t is often the key to robust security. While it’s necessary to keep an eye on network security and upgrade it on a regular basis, server security requires much more attention. For example, when a person is dismissed or quits, their account should be terminated as soon as possible. It’s a security risk to keep these accounts open.
Meanwhile, workstations must have their own antivirus and antimalware software installed on the device level. In the event that something gets past the firewall, these provide backup security. They’re essential for guarding against phishing scams and malware that your staff might bring in on USB devices. These apps also look at what’s currently installed on the computer and quarantine any dangers they find. They seek to safeguard your network from internal risks, while your firewall guards against external ones.
Cybercriminals could obtain access to your network and compromise sensitive data in a variety of ways. Small businesses become an enticing and easy target for cybercriminals as a result of this. Some of the most common cyberattacks include:
Data breaches and network intrusions can disrupt your business operations, lead to the loss of valuable company data, and have devastating effects on your reputation. Detecting and eliminating security risks is necessary for protecting productivity and the survival of your company. Team with Asia E-Pros and our partners today to feel more secure about your network.
You run a lot of risks if your network isn’t properly secured. Data loss, particularly sensitive data, can have long-term consequences for both you and your customers.
To begin with, losing customer data will jeopardize your relationships with business partners, customers, and potential customers. It’s tough to recover your clients’ faith, especially if you lose sensitive data like personal details (IC numbers, passport numbers, contact numbers etc), credit card numbers, or bank account details. A data breach can cause some businesses to drastically cut back or possibly shut down as a result of the harm.
Second, missing financial data can expose your business to legal action. These legal disputes might swiftly deplete your financial resources. If the verdict is against you, you may find that the fines, along with the legal fees, are simply too much to bear.
Third, you must build up your network security to ensure that anything similar does not happen again. It won’t be simple, and it won’t be cheap. You must rapidly implement the security procedures that you should have had in place prior to the intrusion. It’s possible that you’ll have to scrap your entire security solution and start from scratch. In any case, you must demonstrate to your existing and potential consumers that you are actively trying to prevent another breach while dealing with the consequences of the current one.
Even if the network breach didn’t result in customer data being stolen, it could still damage your company. It’s possible that you’ll misplace key documentation relating to new products or services. Your HR records could be taken, exposing your staff and even job applicants to identity fraud. If your financial records have been stolen, you must secure your accounts before money may be stolen. Even if it isn’t immediately harmful, all of this can be a pain.
Network breaches also often result in a company facing all of these factors at once. You’ve had your reputation tarnished, you’ve been sued, and you’ve had to spend money to improve your security. When these fees are added together, they can rapidly become overwhelming. When you add in the reality that many consumers are likely to go elsewhere, you’ll be dealing with a lot of big expenses on a smaller budget. Employees may also begin seeking new possibilities/alternatives as a result of your tarnished reputation.
It doesn’t paint a pretty picture.
Network and email security issues such as spam, viruses, and malware can waste a lot of time and money. They interfere with productivity, storage, bandwidth, and reputation. Asia E-Pros can help you eliminate most of these security threats before they enter your network. Find out how today.
