At BITS we understand how critical it is to secure your network and be confident that your information is protected. We provide comprehensive security solutions to our clients that allow them to carry out their work, safe in the knowledge that their computer network and vital company data is protected and secure.

Threats to a company’s network are many but the most common are spread over the internet and include:

  • Viruses, Worms & Trojans
  • Data Theft/ Computer Hackers
  • Spam
  • Spyware, Malware & Adware

However internal attacks are one of the biggest threats facing business data and systems and need to be managed accordingly. Examples are:

  • Downloading of illegal files using company PCs
  • Copying of (sensitive) company information to USB memory devices
  • Access to non-approved websites on company network

We design IT network security solutions to fit every business requirement.

To protect your network from external threats we use:

  • Anti-virus & anti-spam software
