You are not a computer scientist, but want to make sure that your own office infrastructure is as well protected as possible from attacks? Book our network check and we will show you whether there are any weaknesses in the network and how you can fix them.
Very few companies have their own IT department. Instead, external service providers are used. After setting up a company network for the first time, it is often maintained by laypeople. This can lead to weak points. Many companies rely too much on the firewall, in reality they are now almost “blind”. Most of the Internet traffic is now encrypted, which means that the company firewall can no longer recognize which programs are being loaded into the company network. More and more successful cyberattacks are reported every year. Criminals demand a ransom for encrypted data and many companies are forced to pay for it because the backup has also been encrypted. In the meantime, an industry of its own has emerged, criminals are already using artificial intelligence to carry out attacks.
We have been dealing with the topic of IT security for 30 years. During this time we have seen countless company networks. In doing so, we realized that successful cyberattacks have two causes.
- Incorrect configuration of individual components
- Too much trust in the firewall
We have therefore decided to offer a network check as a service. One of our IT engineers analyzes your network for potential weak points. A variety of tests are performed, including:
- Scan for unknown devices on the network
- Verification of the password quality
- Update status of the individual devices
- Presence of firewall and virus protection and their reliability
- Are there backups and are they adequately protected?
- Encryption Trojans are recognized
- and much more
At the end, you will receive a detailed report on the vulnerabilities found, including a risk assessment and tips on how to eliminate them.
After completing the network check, you will know whether and which weak points your network has and what measures are required. For example, you can enable your employees to work from home without any stomach ache as to whether their own network is secure enough.
One of our customers faced a similar problem. The possibility of teleworking should have been introduced for a few years now, and although the external service provider sold an expensive firewall, this remote access never worked.
The manager approached us and asked for a full check, as there was no longer any trust in the service provider. The review revealed many vulnerabilities. A backup was set up, but it had not been running for several months because the storage space was no longer available. At the same time, the backup was not protected against access, so ransomware would have encrypted these old backups.
In addition, protection software was only installed on some of the computers. On the other hand, there was no protection on the computer with the most sensitive data and the Windows updates were permanently deactivated.
After the company received the network report, the service provider was changed. Remote access could also be set up within a few days and the company could easily switch to home office during the Corona period.
