MCS has a highly trained staff of professionals who keep on top of today’s constantly changing security issues. MCS can ensure "controlled" access and a secure environment, while giving your business the ability to increase market share by using the Internet. Many companies unknowingly increase the vulnerability to their computer network – all in the name of "improving productivity". The most obvious element of security is often times the most easily overlooked. It could be as simple as an untrained user unknowingly providing unauthorized outside access or overriding certain security configurations. No single site security policy is best for any two businesses. Just as your business evolves to adapt to changing market conditions, your site security policy must evolve to meet changing technology conditions. Refer to the experts at MCS. They will provide a risk analysis to determine what you need to protect, what you need to protect it from, and how to protect it. This process involves making cost-effective decisions on the security strategy you want to execute.
A firewall protects your operating systems from theft of personal information and intentional or non-intentional hostile intrusion. This of course compromises confidentiality and may result in data corruption or denial of service. You are running a risk anytime you connect to the internet. A firewall is the point at which your private company network and a public network, such as the Internet, connect. A firewall system is a hardware/software configuration which sits at this perimeter, controlling access into and out of your company's network. While in theory firewalls allow only authorized communications between the internal and external networks, new ways are constantly being developed to compromise these systems. However, properly implemented they are very effective at keeping out unauthorized users and stopping unwanted activities on an internal network. Do you know if yours is properly implemented? Once you believe that a system has been restored to a "safe" state, it is still possible that holes and even traps could be lurking in the system. In the follow-up stage, the system should be monitored for items that may have been missed during the cleanup stage. It is important that these procedures remain maintained. Integral follow up procedures are part of the services that we provide here at MCS.
