Security

By far the most important part of your Business network is security, protecting your Network from the outside & inside can be challenging.

Please see below for a quick briefing on our services we offer for the most common areas of Network security.

Firewall

ICM’s proffered choice is the Draytek Vigor range.

Protection against attacks including DoS (Denial of Service) attacks, IP-based attacks and access by unauthorised remote systems. Wireless, Ethernet and VPN are also protected by various protection systems.

Content control features of the firewall allow you to set restrictions on web site access, blocking download of certain file or data types, blocking specific web sites, blocking IM/P2P applications or other potentially harmful or wasteful content. Using DrayTek’s new GlobalView service, you can block whole categories of web sites (e.g. gambling, adult sites etc.), subject to an annual subscription to the Globalview server, which is continuously updated with new or changed site categorisations or sites which have become compromised (such as infected with Malware).

Antivirus

ICM’s preferred choice for Dealing with Virus’ and other malicious software is the ESET platform, no Anti-Virus company can guarantee that every virus will be caught automatically. Antivirus software is a tool to help you remove threats in the event of infection.

The tools they provide is a massive factor, ESET offers complete End point protection for example Antivirus, Internet security, firewall, Devices, Spam protection, proactive defence plus built-in tools to scan the computer in an offline state to ensure safe removal.

There are other factors to a good Antivirus product one would be how well it manages clients from a central portal also how efficient it runs on a system, other products are well known for their performance issues.
