What is IT Security?

IT security is the protection of computer systems from theft or damage to their hardware, software or electronic data, as well as from disruption or misdirection of the services they provide.

As you are no doubt aware the need to have tight security these days is paramount as cyber threats are constantly evolving. To counter these threats there are many layers to put in place as there is not one device or program that will stop all attacks. This layered security includes:
  • User training and awareness
  • Secure Backups
  • Anti Virus
  • Anti Spam with Email encryption and continuity
  • O/S & Application Patch Management
  • Web filtering and Unified Threat Management
  • Mobile Device Management (inc 365 Enterprise Management and Security)
  • SSL certificates
  • Data Encryption such as Windows 10 BitLocker
At Onyx we constantly evaluate our security products and keep abreast of new technologies. Let us perform a Security Audit on your network- Get in touch with us.

We would like to send a big thank you to all at Onyx for such a smooth and professional operation. We did not incur any major problems and everyone is very pleased with the outcome. The new server is excellent and the sorting of email has been brilliant. Any problems we have had Onyx have been available on the telephone and queries have been answered immediately. The upgrade has made a difference to our everyday workload.

We have had the pleasure of working with Onyx IT for several years. Their level of support, advice and response is always exceptional. Their knowledge spans everything we need within our business on a day to day basis, from networking and infrastructure, desktop and laptop supply, repair, software installations and even sometimes just advice on the most effective or cost effective route to get the job done. I would have no hesitation in recommending the team at Onyx IT.

Since 2011 Onyx has been providing first class IT support to my predecessors and they have continued to deliver professional and efficient IT support, with any problems we report being handled quickly. In addition, they have ensured that the recent project to upgrade our devices in preparation for our Sage 200 upgrade has been carried out in a smooth and effective way. Onyx have also assisted with the installation and maintenance of the Broom Marina public wireless and Vodafone phone system with both projects being successfully completed in the usual professional manner. We have no hesitation in recommending their services.
