  Security

 

  We can help with a range of security measures on and off the internet.

  We are experts in security privileges on local machines, on local area networks (sharing between machines) and on protecting computers from the Internet.  We can test your machines for vulnerability, and design and implement safe practices. We are familiar with the range of security devices, from Norton and McAafee to the most advanced Cisco ASA hardware firewalls ,the Microsoft ISA Server and the Sonicwall hardware firewall.

  Have you tested your defenses ? Try to open what should be a closed door with a Penetration Test.

  Are your employees wasting time, your resources,  and opening your systems to viruses ? You can find out with  Employee Monitoring and Surveillance software from Spector

  If you are connected to the internet you MUST run a firewall as well as anti-virus software. Again, we suggest at least the inexpensive hardware device from Cisco, but at a minimum , for individual computers, a software firewall is a good start. We like the  Zone Alarm  product best out many we have tested and it's free for the time being; http://www.zonelabs.com/store/content/company/products/znalm/freeDownload.jsp

  Without a firewall you are walking blindfolded down a dark street in the Bronx with your wallet half out of your back pocket. If you don't know why we say this, call us.

  For even just home use, or a small office, a firewall is not enough.  Basic firewall systems will stop an intrusive attack, but by hitting web links you may be inviting in malicious software. Firewalls that can prevent this are expensive, starting at several thousand dollars. An alternative is to assume you have been breached and run cleaning sweeps periodically; we suggest Ad-Aware, though we have found that it misses some threats. For this reason we suggest using it in conjunction with Spybot.

  This is a good place to discuss virus and spam fighting. If you have an ordinary virus you don't  need us; buy a copy of  PC Tools  or AVG ( Norton and  MacAfee have gotten, in our experience, bloated and hard to tune, as well as often late in coming out with solutions to modern threats) - though we are happy to come in and tune these products. If they don't work it may be due to the newness of the virus; it takes these firms time to create a cure. In the meantime we can be of help; all viruses work by manipulating the operating system, inevitably placing themselves in startup routines of the  system. As we know these processes we are often able to manually disable viruses if not completely eliminate them.

  Many new viruses steal credit card info and send it back to - in our last case, Russia. We were of invaluable aid to our client even as we could only disable , not eliminate, the virus ; we were able to see what the virus was doing and warn the client to cancel his credit cards.

  While based in Suffolk County  on Long Island, New York, we have made and supported networks in New York City , Connecticut, New Jersey and Florida - and would be happy doing the work anywhere we travel - from Europe to Asia to South America.
