IT Security

There is nothing more valuable or more important in your business than the data that sits within it.

That data not only provides you with the means of doing business but inadequate security may also risk the exposure of sensitive information pertaining to your customers or indeed your own company. You also have legal obligations to maintain, manage and secure that data.

In many businesses, this data is often neglected, and the security protecting it left as an after-thought. Threats to security are greater than at any time in the past and come in ever more sophisticated forms and are ever more damaging. This threat is further heightened as staff increasingly use their own devices allowing for data to flow into your business in a variety of ways, thereby increasing the attack surface. Cybersecurity should now be at the top of every organisation’s agenda.

This should start with robust prevention, detection and response. Traditionally, security has been established by creating layers of security at the perimeter, but the world is different now. Security needs to be an always-on service, protecting every endpoint, detecting early threats and responding before the damage is done.

Other considerations include new legislation such as GDPR coming into full force from May 2018 and security standards such as Cyber Essentials, often required as a minimum standard for business tender processes.

Astec will guide you through this security maze. We build and deploy secure environments that work for you and our experienced security team can provide detailed reviews and audits to deliver Cybersecurity Essentials accreditation and assist with your GDPR compliance.

“We came to Astec, because we recognised that from a risk management point of view we could no longer look after our technology requirements in house. We had concerns about data back-up and needed to review all our current IT to make sure that it was appropriate for our business moving forward and protected us in the event of a disaster. Now we have been given a clean bill of health and our backups are operating smoothly and efficiently. The specific benefits of working with Astec are that we now have peace of mind, with regard to our IT and know that we can call in an expert when “turning it off and back on again” doesn’t fix the problem.”
