Network & Security

Networking & Security – keeping your systems running, keeping your business safe

Today, most companies want to work from anywhere and everywhere. The expansion of the network through more readily available solutions has been a great liberator, allowing more dynamic and flexible working. However, as our reliance on technology increases, so does our exposure to risk, particularly in terms of online security.

Your business needs to ensure that you have a robust approach to the issues at hand, which if not properly considered, can lead to security breaches. And even when software and hardware solutions are implemented, people should be at the heart of any cyber security strategy. Staff awareness of the risks is essential.

Hackers and online fraud often make the news, so ignorance is no excuse. Liability remains yours so if you are unsure how to approach cyber security, please speak to us and we can help guide you through the issues as well as the solutions available to mitigate the risk.

For most organisations, your network is vital; inefficiencies and security vulnerabilities greatly impact productivity and undermine business growth.

Scalable, reliable, secure business IT solutions

At Minerva, we will work closely with you to help you provide support and advice. We will ensure you maximise the use of your budget to create as secure and efficient a network as possible, reducing risks, whilst meeting the current and changing needs of your business.
