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

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.
