The Importance of Cybersecurity

Secure Your Business

Organisations of all sizes are at risk of cyber threats. One survey reported that 45% of UK small businesses and micro-enterprises suffer security breaches each year.

Internet security is essential to keep your equipment, network, business and staff safe from cyberattacks – no matter the form. A full cybersecurity framework will protect your system from viruses, trojans, malware, ransomware and phishing. 

Maintain Business as Usual

Resilience against cyberattacks is fundamental to the welfare of your business. In the unfortunate event of a security breach, having the necessary security measures in place will help you to bounce back. We can restore your system from a backup and remotely access or delete any data that has been lost. If you can’t prevent a cyber threat, then prepare to respond instantly and maintain business continuity.

Protect Against Increasing Risks

As technology advances, hacking tools have become more sophisticated and widely available. Transferring data online presents opportunities for efficiency as well as for intrusion. Our managed services include industry-leading updates, to ensure your antivirus and firewall are prepared to tackle the latest threats.

Avoid Rising Cost of Breaches

A security data breach can have far-reaching consequences, from legislative fines to costly resources required for recovery. Experts estimate that cyberattacks cost UK businesses £30billion each year. Beyond financial expenses, the cost to your company’s reputation can be more difficult to repair. 

It is cheaper and more efficient to invest in prevention rather than cure when it comes to internet security. 

Comply with Tighter Regulations 

Cyberattacks put your business at risk of failing data protection regulations. More recent legislation, such as GDPR, has led to businesses and consumers being hyper-vigilant. Maintain compliance and avoid penalties by encrypting your data and preventing unauthorised access to sensitive information.

Where to start with Cybersecurity

Cyber Essentials Audit

Before we can help you to protect your IT systems, we must understand the current situation and potential risks. Our support team of Cyber Essentials assessors are certified to undertake a full audit of your system. We start with a pre-assessment, to identify any gaps in your security, before fixing any issues and submitting your site for certification. 

As part of this service, we undertake a full audit of your network, to identify vulnerable areas that require maximum protection. As well as identifying risks, audit trails are also a vital step towards compliance with legislation. Internet security and data protection laws come hand in hand.

Test your Data Backup

An up-to-date backup system is the first point of response to any cyber threat. By maintaining regular backups of your most important data, you can resume business as usual, away from any malware or viruses. A vital step for business continuity is to test your backup by doing data restores, to ensure everything restores as planned. Don’t leave it too late to find out that your backup files have been corrupted. 

Trustbackup is a fully managed, cloud-based backup service that encrypts your data and stores it independent of your device. This means that your business data is safe from physical threat or damage, and can be retrieved almost instantly.

Linten’s Internet Security Services

From Installation to Monitoring

We provide a range of internet security services, from initial audits, advice and installation, through to real-time monitoring and support. Our expert engineers will integrate industry-leading defence software, to protect your site against malware, ransomware and Trojans. 

Managed Firewalls

To protect an entire network, we install and manage physical firewalls. Firewalls filter all information that passes in and out of a network, protecting sensitive data from unauthorized access or malicious software. Our support engineers manage each third-generation firewall to monitor any issues and install updates. A fully managed system provides unparalleled protection against cyber attacks.

Desktop and Mobile Antivirus

We offer a fully managed antivirus service, for a range of desktop and mobile devices. We know that it’s all too easy for staff to disable antivirus software, or for an update to fail, so our service includes centralised monitoring from our helpdesk. This continual tracking ensures that your antivirus system is up-to-date and always provides maximum virus protection. As cyber threats become more sophisticated, we install regular updates for the highest level of cybersecurity. 

Network Protection

We offer a range of network protection services to increase control and risk management within your organisation. Rather than protecting solely against cyber attackers, network protection measures enable you to manage how staff and guests use your network. We can install internal gateways within your framework, including:

  • Password Managers. Using a different, random password for each account you access is the initial step to cyber security. We make it simple with our encrypted password storage service, which automatically remembers and populates your passwords. 
  • Tiered Access Control. Not all employees need access to the same level of sensitive or personal information. We can help you set up restricted user access for each member of your team.
  • Multi-factor Authentication. Multiple authentication barriers can be configured within most cloud-hosted or in-house computer systems or websites. Toggle additional security measures on and off to protect your most sensitive information by requiring passwords and security answers.
  • Limited Access to Certain Sites. To maintain a totally secure network, we install limits or restrictions to certain sites. This may be as simple as enabling social media access during lunch, to maximise efficiency.

RDP Cloud Guard

If you access remote desktop servers without a VPN (Virtual Private Network), then your system is open to the internet. To protect against constant hacking attempts, we install a cloud guard to block suspicious users. Anyone who fails to successfully login three times will be automatically blocked from accessing your remote server. This prevents brute force and advanced persistent threats.

In addition, our cloud guard service includes complex encryption of all data that travels between your device and your hosted server. This means that if your information is interrupted, it will be almost impossible to decipher.

Dark Web Scanning

We offer a Dark Web Monitoring service to help customers stay safe from phishing attacks. Our technicians will scan the Dark Web to see if any of your company information appears for sale. By staying one step ahead of hackers, we can block any access credentials that might put your system at risk.
