US Cyber Attack : Protecting your critical infrastructure from hacking
Have you read about the Cyber Attack on the US water plant in February?!
In the wake of this attack, Imagine Technology would like to remind you that security is the most important component to think about when analysing your home or business IT infrastructure. Your IT contains several personal files which you don’t want to be accessed by criminals who intend on stealing your critical infrastructure and using it against you and your company. It is, therefore, vital that you act now before it’s too late. We have seen time-after-time that without sufficient security infrastructure, files can be quite easily accessed by external bodies. I know that this can sound incredibly complicated so I’m going to simplify it so, both, you and I understand what we can do in order to protect your personal files from getting hacked into. Investing in a sufficient firewall is an important key to protecting your files. I know…more extra costs! But don’t worry, it is entirely possible to find great value refurbished firewalls that mean you protect your businesses infrastructure without spending loads of your hard-earned profits. So, what is a firewall? Well, to put it as simple as I can, a firewall is a network security system that controls and moderates incoming and outgoing network traffic, according to applied set rules. Or, even simpler, it is a barrier. Only secure and trusted internal networks can go through this barrier, whereas, untrusted external networks cannot. Personally, I see it as a security guard for all your personal files, protecting all your critical internal infrastructure from the threat of being shoplifted… 😊.
Here, at Imagine Technology, we can source and supply a range of firewalls (both new and refurbished) from the various different manufacturers, to name a few: Juniper, Fortinet, Paloalto, Ubiquiti and Cisco. Get in touch with us, today, to find out more about what we can offer. Make sure you stop the thieves in their tracks and invest in a firewall today to protect you and your business.
