As the commercial landscape changes, so too do cyber-criminals change their attack vectors. Scott Martin, director of infoprotect, says that most business premises are protected with security gates, burglar bars, alarm systems and armed response; however, “the most damaging path into your business is through a network cable or wireless connection”.
infoprotect is a newly established company that delivers high quality, personalised business security solutions and services that are designed to reduce the operating risk of a company and complement existing business practices.
The company’s tailor made solutions include end-point protection, e-mail protection, encryption, backup and recovery. Services offered by infoprotect are supported from implementation to configuration, through to monitoring, reporting and auditing.
Martin says that cyber security is no longer about protecting IT infrastructure only, but about protecting intellectual property (IP) as well.
“Your business connects to the outside world via the Internet. It is, however, the same method with which cyber-criminals and their malware connects with a company’s database, information and knowledge, ultimately compromising or stealing the company’s IP,” he explains.
“What consequence would there be if you arrived at work one morning to find that your company’s production database has been compromised? Or your network had been tampered with or corrupted? Copied, sold or even erased? How would this effect your business operations?”
infoprotect follows a unique approach by immersing itself into an organisation and its security environment. “We learn from you, about your business and about your concerns and pains. The end-result is a business security solution that we design with you, not for you,” says Martin.
infoprotect combines best practice with effective and efficient communication, and focuses on enhancing security posture and optimising service delivery to assure an organisation’s business continuity while decreasing operating risk.
“We remove the worries of business security and risk, so that you can focus on your business,” says Martin.
