Total Perimeter Security for Your Network
Network Security – Get the Best!
You have a business, your business has access to the internet. Internet access has its privileges, and it’s liabilities. Small business is more likely to be attacked than larger business because small business until now have not been able to get adequate protection. With good equipment handling your internet access, you can achieve seamless access to your cloud servers, be hosting an on site website, or just sharing data with customers and vendors, while doing online research of products and ideas. The list is endless these days. With Unified Threat Management built into the Watchguard systems, you have the best in class security system offered today bar none! With no perceptible loss in performance if you stay under the 60 user threshold recommended for this unit. Should you have more than 60 users, it’s not a problem, just call us for a higher capacity unit than we are offering here.
Remote Access to the Office
If you are using remote desktop (RDP) or (RDC) software to connect to Windows workstations, this forces you to keep a windows port open on your router; allowing bad guys access! Remote desktop ports are highly insecure and we get a good sum of our revenue doing damage control from just this one application. Two major issues with leaving that port open is bot traffic overloading pc and server resources. The bots know you have Microsoft Servers and PC’s because of the port open on your router, and the PC’s or servers answering on that port are a dead-giveaway. The rogue intruders eventually discover user accounts and try passwords against them, and if your user security is set up right, the accounts get disabled, and the real user is locked out of company resources. Eventually user accounts and passwords are discovered, and ransomware can be installed in the background while your working. It does not have to be this way! Watchguard remote desktop system brings you back into compliance with all the regulators and give you peace of mind.
There are products such as Logmein, go to my pc and others that are inexpensive in the short run, and are rather cumbersome. All the previously mentioned Remote desktop solutions require you to have a remote PC and a work PC. Our solution allows you to have a desktop at work if you like, but does not require one. Just one laptop can work both in the office and anywhere you are with internet access. Your remote computer will have the same desktop and the same options that you have while sitting at the office, and if the internet is good at the remote office, the same speeds. Remote access to the office component requires a radius server either as a linux daemon, or as an application on Windows Server.
Data Loss Prevention
Ever wonder if employees are sending out trade secrets? Watchguard has a configurable data loss prevention service to help you know whats going out the door.
Compliance with International, Federal, and Credit Card Regulations
The Watchguard Firebox systems that we recommend are fully GDPR compliant, PCI, compliant and Use Unified Threat Management to protect you and your business. These boxes streamline remote access allowing the people and software you want to access your data to do so in a secure and efficient manner. These are not the cheapest firewall out there, but we believe they are the best. When comes to protecting your business, you can’t afford anything but the best.
Where does the Watchguard need to be placed?
If you have a Internet provider provided router, place it on the inside of the router. Run the outbound cable from the watchguard, run the inbound cable from the watchguard to your internet network switch or hub. Unplug any cables on the internet router and plug them into the firebox. Turn off any WIFI on the internet router to force all traffic in and out of your building through the watchguard.
