Network Security Solutions

Welcome to the Cyber Age… and the Age of Cyber Crime: The amount of information on the internet is growing exponentially with each passing day. Most of this information is in the public domain and available for anyone to access, however many businesses have been moving more of their data and systems to the internet. Most of this information is meant to stay within the company in what is called the private domain. The keyword is private, but this information is at a higher risk of being stolen or manipulated every day.

While you may think your company’s information is safe on your current network, if you’re connected to the internet, you’re at risk of becoming a victim of cyber crime. Security experts like to say that there are now only two types of companies left in the United States: those that have been hacked and those that don’t know they’ve been hacked. With the proliferation of information on the internet comes the rapid rise in individuals and groups who commit crime online through hacking. That’s where our team of security experts come in.

Smartweb’s Network Security Team:

Disaster Recovery

As IT systems have become increasingly critical to the functioning of a company, the importance of ensuring the continued operation of those systems, or the rapid recovery of the systems, has become critical. Disaster/Recovery is the technology part of business continuity. It involves creating processes, policies and procedures related to preparing for recovery and continuation of your technology infrastructure after a natural or human-caused disaster. It also involves setting up some type of technology infrastructure that runs in parallel to your existing one, which can be switched to in case of a disaster.

Smartweb uses the following most common strategies for data protection.

  • Backups made to tape and sent off-site at regular intervals (preferably daily).
  • Backups made to disk on-site and automatically copied to off-site disk, made directly to off-site disk.
  • Cloud based backups either backing up directly to the cloud or using a hybrid system where a backups are made locally and then synchronized with the cloud based backup system.
  • Replication of data to an off-site location, which overcomes the need to restore the data (only the systems then need to be restored or synchronized).
  • High availability systems which keep both the data and system replicated off-site, enabling continuous access to systems and data.
  • Continuous data protection(CDP), or real-time backup,which refers to backup of computer data by automatically saving a copy of every change made to that data. It enables the restoration of data to any point in time.

E-mail Systems | Spam Filtering

In today’s fast paced business world, e-mail is one of the most effective and popular means of communication. E-mail systems allow people to communicate instantaneously with anyone, anywhere in the world. Using e-mails you can share information and ideas, documents, pictures, files etc. with your customers and vendors as well as use it for marketing and business related services.

You can host your email on your own servers or host it on ours. Many companies use Microsoft’s Exchange Server or Lotus Notes as their in-house mail server. Microsoft Outlook on Windows and Entourage on a MAC are popular email clients.

Smartweb has extensive experience installing and maintaining E-mail servers and will guarantee a 99.9% uptime on servers we install and maintain. We realize how critical it is to be in touch with your clients and contacts and keep your e-mail system running 24/7/365.

E-mail Spam clogs e-mail systems and mailboxes which can become a nuisance, but more importantly, it results in a loss of productivity. A typical scenario many business workers face is an inbox full of hundreds of messages from spammers, useless advertisements and promotions, dating websites and dangerous phishing emails that are trying to get your personal information for fraudulent purposes.

Smartweb recommends, installs and customizes E-mail Spam filtering systems to protect you from these unwanted intrusions.
