IT SECURITY IS CRITICAL
Business records, customer information and intellectual property all exist as data. Losing this data could result in a loss of competitive advantage. It could even lead to an interruption in operations, lawsuits and business failure.
And with third party threats constantly evolving, there is an urgent need to stay ahead.
But thankfully, though IT security may have been costly in the past, that is no longer the case.
Here are some of the ways that data gets lost.
External Threats. Malicious hackers use email, malware, phishing and other schemes to penetrate business networks. Unsecured wifi networks and weak passwords result in compromised devices and data.
Technology Failure. Servers fail for a multitude of reasons. Sometimes it’s the power supply. Sometimes it’s wear and tear. Often it is totally unexpected. Having the necessary redundancies in place is the first step towards effective data protection.
Network Vulnerabilities. Data threat by departing employees is today a greater threat than hackers. Having the right permissions in place makes a difference. Data breaches or loss can also happen as a result of accidental employee actions. These are all preventable.
Is your cyber security approach limited
to a single security perimeter ?
Our tiered security strategy guarantees that vulnerabilities and flaws are considerably reduced, giving hackers less time to conduct their dirty work. As a result, Blueshield clients have a dramatically improved capacity to identify and respond to cyberattacks.
We work with the biggest names and best tools in the industry.

HOW WE CAN HELP
We stay ahead of accidental data loss and malicious threats through a combination of strategies.
Cloud & Local Backups
As the first line of defence and recovery, local backups supersede cloud based solutions. We set up layers of protection for local and cloud servers.
Asset / Device Protection
We deploy encryption and manage firmware updates to secure laptops, tablets and mobile devices against spyware, hackers and other digital predators.
We secure local and wireless networks using firewalls, encryption, regularly updated anti-virus & anti-ransomware tools, plus other advanced techniques.
Active Threat Monitoring
We actively check logs, screen network activity and setup alerts to address potential and active threats. All this is done remotely on a constant, 24/7 basis.
We build protections around email servers and run penetration testing to ensure resilience against phishing, spoofing, malicious files and other security gaps.
Business Continuity Plan
We help companies prepare for the eventuality of a cyber attack based on downtime thresholds. We also provide remote desktop terminal services to ensure business continuity.
