It doesn’t have to be cloud storage VS cybersecurity

What is cloud storage and how does it work?

Cloud Storage utilises the storage capacity and security of data centres to keep working copies of your most important data and systems available in a safe, secure and managed way. When it comes to cloud storage often, specialised software sits on your key systems and individuals computers allowing the files and data they have to be restored if damage or loss occurs.

Next Generation Firewalls (NGF’s)

Next generation firewalls help protect your system from malware attacks, encrypted emails, ransomware attacks and unauthorised access through the internet, while giving you unlimited internal IP addresses.

Next level cybersecurity

What is a NGF and what do they do?

Next Generation Firewalls (NGF) are devices that sit between your internal network and the internet. In addition to standard firewall functionality, they utilize advanced intelligence to actively monitor the inbound and outbound traffic.
They leverage the power of the cloud to keep details of current threats and how they operate up to date and can block certain types of malware and ransomware from getting control signals to any internal systems that may have been compromised.

Next generation Firewalls give unlimited internal IP Addresses. NGF ‘s improve your cybersecurity and help reduce data breaches and cybercrime. They block cyberthreats such as unauthorized access to the network and everything connected to it. Next-generation Firewalls have additional analytical capabilities that can stop advanced cyberattacks such as malware, ransomware and encrypted emails.

If you have doubts about your firewall capabilities, you should definitely call us! Think of it this way, you wouldn’t leave your front door open to anyone who wanted to enter, right?

Password writeback allow users to change and update their own passwords eliminating the need to use up your IT resources.

Password writeback removes the need to set up an on-premises solution for users to reset their password. It all happens in real time and so users are notified immediately if their password could not be reset or changed for any reason.

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Adding Multi-Factor Authentication significantly improves your overall security and is now a requirement for most organisations.

Cybersecurity first

What is Multi-Factor Authentication and what does it do?

It is an authentication method that requires the user to provide two or more methods of verification in order to access a resource such as an email account, online account, or a VPN.

As well as asking for a username and password, MFA requires you to prove you have access to at least one other source of verification this could be a phone, another email address, or a smartcard. This ensures that only you have access to your account.

Multi-Factor Authentication is important as your school systems contain sensitive information that needs to be protected and made accessible only to users with sufficient authorisation.
