We help you before things get bad.

If I asked you what state your company’s computer systems or data centre were in, what would you say?

What is the value of data security to you?

If you’re like most business owners, you’re probably not entirely sure; but you do know that your information and privacy are valuable, there are frequently printing problems, along with PC performance issues and slowdowns, which are frustrating; staff are complaining about how slow the internet is, etc.
And that’s fine! – sort of.

As a business owner, you don’t need to understand the tech inside out (that’s what we’re here for). But you do need to know that your systems and IT network security are up-to-date and working for you, not against you.
We come with a network security strategy and our detailed network assessment will answer any questions you have about the state of your company’s computer systems, servers, security, and more.

It’s not just about finding holes in security, or identifying bad practices for online and e-mail usage; but also, it’s about getting away from myths about how some of the technology works, by providing network assessment reports on a regular basis, using our IT network security assessment tools.

Benefits to having an assessment:

We identify vulnerabilities and scan all critical assets of the technology network. Then, we diagnose any sensitive data that is created, stored, or transmitted by these same assets. We create a risk profile for each customer.

We administer an approach to assess the identified security vulnerabilities for critical assets of your network infrastructure. After careful evaluation and network assessment, we determine how to efficiently allocate time and resources towards risk mitigation. We take it security risk management very seriously, as we have recently discovered a cumulative increase in network security threats.

The assessment approach or methodology must analyze the correlation between assets, network security threats, vulnerabilities, and mitigating controls on your network design.

Define a mitigation approach and enforce security controls for each risk on the network diagram.

Implement tools and processes to minimize IT network security threats, breaches, and vulnerabilities, from occurring within your firm’s resources.

Fault management: It’s important to configure your network devices (routers, switches, firewalls, servers, etc.) to catch logging messages and send them to an external server. Whenever an interface goes down or the CPU goes above 80%, we want to receive an e-mail so we can see what is going on, as a network administrator.

Configuration management: Any changes made to your computer network have to be logged. It’s also key to use change management, to make sure relevant personnel will be notified of planned network changes. Changes to network devices have to be reported and recognized before they are implemented.

Performance management: Network performance is monitored on all LAN and WAN links so you know when things go wrong. QoS (Quality of Service) has to be configured on the proper interfaces.

Security management: The creation of a security policy and implementation using firewalls, VPNs, intrusion prevention systems, and use Authorization, Authentication and Accounting servers to validate user credentials, is crucial. Network breaches have to be logged and an appropriate response has to be made.

These are a few essential steps in the maintenance of computer information systems. Your network should be there to help your company’s productivity and, with help from our computer tech support, you should never suffer from slow performance-related issues.

We’re among the most qualified local IT consulting companies, and we offer turnkey professional IT network and security computer services in Montreal and Ottawa.

Every company is at risk of data loss, network security threats, breaches and cyberattacks. Your network may contain various vulnerabilities and there may be a variety of threats at play. In addition, the biggest risk or threat to your company could be your own staff.

Hackers do tend to target big companies, but they also infiltrate small and mid-size companies.

There are countless stories where hackers bypassed a company’s security protocol or firewall, to finally gain access to master data.

In most cases, hackers find the network vulnerability and start targeting web servers, backup systems, and the primary trading and hosting systems.

In a matter of just half an hour, the infiltrator can wipe out the files and websites of hundreds and even thousands of client accounts.

Such attacks can cost companies millions of dollars, but more importantly, the business’ trust and brand equity become heavily diminished. Cyber security companies are here to protect you from unnecessary obstructions and any dreaded down time. We do much more than just install software, configure computers, make backups, protect you from ransomware, install anti-virus and anti-spyware software and minimize email spam. We offer cyber security services in the form of business solutions that add value to your day-to-date operations. Feel free to get in touch with any questions regarding our cyber security consulting services.


Technology Assessment

You need to understand where your process gaps are located, and what technology can be implemented to fill them.

We’ll take a look under the hood of your I.T. and let you know what is going on; what’s working, and what’s not.
