Network Security

Be Prepared, Gain Peace of Mind

Network security should be the number one priority for businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area. According to statistics reported by US Insurance Information Institute (III), cybercrime costs the global economy $445 billion a year, with data breach costing $18 billion alone. Without proper network security for your business, it will be a matter of time until you are hit by a cyber crime that may not be recoverable. PC Professional’s goal is to provide you with the latest IT technology and security so you have both a disaster recovery plan, and peace of mind.

3 Reasons to Upgrade Your Network Security

1. External Threats

Ransomware − a form of malware that encrypts a victim’s files. Hackers demand payment/ransom from the victim to restore data.

Malware − unwanted software that infects computer systems

Phishing − the most common type of attack, prominent in emails disguised as a form of legitimate company asking for personal information with infected links

2. Internal Threats

Employee Incident − Whether intentional or not, modern network security must be empathetic with the ability to recover from the faults of employees.

Lack of Training/Education −The best form of prevention is education. We provide training and resources for businesses to keep their employees knowledgeable of ways to prevent network security threats.

Vulnerable Infrastructure − Your current network security may have gaps that prevent it from performing at its best. We're here to identify those gaps and provide recommendations.

3. Compliance

If you store customer data, private information, or take credit cards, network security is no longer an option, but instead is a necessity. Not to mention if you must adhere to HIPAA, or any other regulations, you need a team that understands these requirements and can provide the pieces necessary to keep you compliant.

One of the most common types of breach occur from compromised credentials. This makes a conditional access work environment with at least 2 levels of authentication one of the easiest, yet most effective solutions to prevent cyber crime.

Firewall & Auto VPN

Firewall and Auto VPN technology make the best network security duo. While a firewall checks for potential threats that are accessing your network, Auto VPN creates an encrypted tunnel for all traffic coming from your device, proactively hiding sensitive information from outsiders.
