We help you choose the right End Point Security solutions to defend your business assets.

The right-fit End Point Protection keeps your business safe from most known and new threats. Your security suite should be both comprehensive and easy to manage across all of your devices.

When did you last review the security protocol protecting your technology? You might be surprised how quickly things can change within the digital security space. Cyber crime, like ransomware, is increasing - a direct result of the last two years working remotely and adapting our traditional workspace configurations.

We aim to keep your digital safety at the highest priority - you can trust that our team will recommend the best-fit solutions for your business.

Some common End Point Security Solutions include:

  • Anti-Virus
  • Email Scanning Software targeting Ransomware
  • Firewalls
  • Completing a Cyber Threat Assessment
  • Security Awareness Training for all staff, to ensure that you are reducing your user risk, which works in tandem with your software-based IT security solutions

 

What is Ransomware?

Before stepping through some solutions, it's smart to get across the concept of ransomware, and how detrimental it can be for your business.

Even if you run the best anti-virus software, there is a chance that malware can slip through. Threats to end point devices have significantly diversified and increased. Ransomware is fraudulent cyber crime that infiltrates your system, locks data down for a cost. Malware often disguises as an email from a comfortable source, with false links to derive personal information and access permissions.

You might see an increase in SPAM style, scam emailing (known as phishing) across holidays or the festive season - with new approaches via text or smartphone. Imagine for the hundreds of people that don't click, there unfortunately are a small proportion of people that do - so it still works. 

AGL, Australia Post and the ATO are three organisations that have been fraudulently impersonated. If you or a staff member receive a bill or official-looking email from either of these organisations that is not expected, delete it. If it is a legitimate communication, the organisation will follow you up.

 

Anti-Virus Software

A reliable and comprehensive anti-virus software is your first line of defense against attacks from viruses and malware. BES IT Systems has been selling anti-virus software for over twenty years - it’s an important precaution and one to take seriously. 

Webroot Secure Anywhere Anti-Virus is our software of choice, and this is why:

  • Webroot is the fastest to install, fastest to scan and takes up the least hard disk space on your machines
  • Webroot uses 11x less memory when idle than the closest competitor.

Simple, quick to set up and maintain and works. It shouldn't get any more complex.

 

trustwave-pdf-icon-2Email Scanning Software

We recommend Trustwave Standard. A secure email gateway that incorporates industry-leading web threat intelligence to target emails that contain malicious URLs and deliver real-time, zero-day protection against the latest email-borne threats.

Using proprietary technologies, SpamProfilter, SpamBotsensor and Spam Censor, you can experience a consistent 99.5% spam catch rate with near zero false positives – all with no special tuning.

Trustwave Advanced utilises all of the Standard features plus a blended threat module: it rewrites URLs embedded in emails to route them through a cloud-based instance of Trustwave Secure Web Gateway to protect against malware and phishing attacks in real-time for any device. 

The Trustwave Advanced product ensures that even when you click on URLs in emails from a mobile device, you are protected. The product works with both on-premise SEG and SEG Cloud through a completely cloud-based infrastructure.

Fortinet offers firewalls to suit different environments: entry level, mid-range, high-end and virtual firewalls. 

 

Why should your business consider a Cyber Threat Assessment?

BES IT Systems, in conjunction with Fortinet, offers a Cyber Threat Assessment to help diagnose where vulnerabilities may lie in your network. 

Secure network architectures need to constantly evolve to adapt with current, advanced and persistent threats. We say that there are two ways to find out if your solution isn’t keeping up: wait for a breach to happen or run validation tests.

  • Security and Threat Prevention. Which application vulnerabilities are attacking your network, which malware / botnets were detected, and which devices are “at risk” for firewall assessment and security breach probability
  • User Productivity. Assess which peer-to-peer, social media, instant messaging, and other apps are running - for application visibility control
  • Network Utilisation and Performance. What are your throughput, session, and bandwidth usage requirements during peak hours - with network utilisation and monitoring tests for performance optimisation
  • Speed of Completion. This assessment returns results in less than 7 days of monitoring with no interruption to your infrastructure.
