Tinto Technology System Security
You have antivirus at home, but what about your business systems?
It is startling to consider, but many commercial organisations rely on residential grade security measures to secure their business systems.
A business system often includes multiple entry and exit points for data and frequently allows flexibility of hot-desking - the ability of an employee to access their data from any PC connected to the network.
These features generate unique challenges that are often overlooked.
The four pillars of system security.
At it’s lowest levels, system security often means working within four constraints:
- Perimeter protection delivered by a hardware firewall
- Robust network based anti-malware and end-point protection
- Procedures to test and deploy system security patches
- Access controls to prevent changes to software security settings
As can be seen above, no single control can be effective. It is by a combination of hardware and software systems, coupled with procedural control that a secure system is delivered.
Tinto Technology is experienced in delivering all four of these requirements. At your request, we can conduct a thorough system review to identify any weak points and propose improvements to your systems.
We can follow this up with implementation of upgrades and procedural training. Also, if necessary we can arrange for a penetration test to be attempted on your system by a third party who can independently audit the system.
