Security and Business Continuity

How secure is your network? Like many companies, you may have a firewall and an antivirus solution, but these are not enough to protect your company’s data and safeguard its operations.

R3 combines industry standards and best practices we’ve developed into a comprehensive approach to your network’s security. Elements of our approach include:

  • Timely application of operating system patches and updates
  • Secure password policies
  • Standardized employee exit procedures
  • Protected remote user access
  • Internet usage restrictions
  • Content filtering tools

Data Backup

If your network was destroyed by a natural disaster or your data lost during a system failure, how would you recover?

Disaster Recovery Planning

Implementing a daily backup procedure can create a false sense of security. Often, businesses don’t realize that critical information, application data, email, or contact information was not captured with their backup, or their backups have stopped running, and their information is lost due to a crash.

To be actionable in the event of a disaster, the network administrator must:

  • Understand where all critical data is located on the network, and the processes required to capture the data for archival
  • Implement a process to safeguard this information and monitor its execution
  • Plan access to replacement hardware, software licensing information and installation media
  • Store backup files in a secure offsite location

Hosted Antivirus

Threats to your network from viruses, spyware, hackers and Trojan horses are becoming more sophisticated and harder to defend against at the same time that users are pressuring companies to expand remote access options.

An infection can cause irreparable harm by destroying your archived data or compromising your network’s hardware. According to a Symantec survey, one-third of small and mid-sized business do not have antivirus protection despite understanding the risks. Survey respondents cited inadequate budgets as the main factor in their decision.

R3 offers clients secure, hosted antivirus protection that fits their budgets.
