A firewall is a vital piece of your business’s defense against perimeter threats. Serving as a gatekeeper between your company’s servers and the outside world, a properly maintained firewall will not only keep external threats out, but it can also alert you to more subtle problems by intercepting outgoing data as well.
Organizations need a Firewall that provides comprehensive real-time network protection against a broad range of susceptibilities including intrusions, malware, and advanced persistent threats. Firewalls are essential to provide deep-packet inspection so organizations can employ granular policies for network optimization such as traffic prioritization that can be set to ensure that latency-sensitive or business-critical applications are always given priority.

Anti-virus and Malware protection
A McAfee study put cybercrime profits at 920 billion a year. It is estimated that there are more than 150,000 computer viruses in circulation every day and 148,000 computers compromised daily.
Advanced pieces of malware pop up all the time. Target attacks aim at hijacking sensitive information tied to such entities as private companies, government entities and research institutes. Almost half of all infections targeted private individuals and small businesses in an attempt to capture sensitive information.
PC Professional partners with top security providers to help mitigate such risks and breaches. We carefully monitor your entire Infrastructure and ensure that all of your organizations devices, mobile and local, are protected and regularly updated.
Critical patches are released weekly and many times organizations fail to properly address the updates due to the lack of resources, the inability to restart systems and/or from pure unawareness. Having a patch management process in place not only minimizes security holes getting breached but also keeps your systems running optimally and proactively. Without an effective patch management system to help actively apply updates, the day-to-day realities of life in the IT trenches can sabotage even the best intentions. Security patches eradicate security weaknesses. Attackers wanting to break into systems can exploit these weaknesses. These are similar to hotfixes but are deemed obligatory if the circumstances match and need to be deployed quickly.
PC Professional remotely monitors your entire network and actively keeps track of upcoming service patches and updates. In the case of an emergency security situation, PC Professional receives instant notifications and is able to 24×7 remotely monitor and triage as necessary. We make it our number one priority to ensure our clients systems are immediately protected.
