Comprehensive IT security and Cyber protection for a fraction of the cost.
A well-known fact is that Cyber-attacks present a high impact, high likelihood risk to businesses throughout the world. A lesser known fact is that more than 50% of Cyber-attacks are perpetrated on small and medium sized businesses, and that South Africa has the third highest number of Cyber-crime attacks worldwide. Of these attacks, 95% start with an email. Not having the correct tools in place or not configuring them correctly makes these attacks more successful.
The effects of such debilitating attacks range from financial to reputational loss, and as targeted security attacks grow exponentially, combating this criminal activity is becoming a critical element of every business strategy.
A comprehensive and reliable Cyber Security umbrella has five essential and interdependent elements:
For most small businesses, implementing all these components can be prohibitively expensive – the Vox IT Security Toolbox is specifically for customers with 20 users or less and reduces the equivalent monthly charges by 30% while providing comprehensive IT protection with world-class technology for as little as R2 262 per month. Or try our 40-user package with FortiGate 60F Firewall for just R3 381 per month.
Best-of-breed OEM first line of defense against Cyber-attacks accessing the network. Features include Anti-virus, Anti-malware, Firewall, Intrusion Prevention, VPN and Web Filtering.
Prevention, detection and removal of viruses and malware from endpoints - for a laptop, desktop and one server.
Advanced spam detection, 100% virus protection, Identity Threat Protection (ITP) and the only 100% punitive phishing protection SLA against leading banks in South Africa.
For one server including 200GB storage. Despite all attempts - attacks may still succeed. Backups ensure that companies have a safe, off-site, record of their data that can be implemented for continuity.
All the aforementioned elements of IT security are useless if not set-up and managed properly. This includes ongoing firewall management and OS patching, Anti-virus updates on the PCs and server as well as daily Backup checks.
The Vox IT Security Toolbox is specifically for customers with 20 to 40 users and reduces the equivalent monthly charges by 30% while providing comprehensive IT protection with world-class technology.
SecureMail incorporates an array of Anti-virus, anti-spam, content control and anti-phishing technologies that act as the first line of defense between the public Internet and your company’s email servers. So, if your users are in the office or at home, they are still protected against email threats.
A virtual private network (VPN) is a technology that creates an encrypted connection over a less secure network. The most common types of VPNs are remote-access VPNs and site-to-site VPNs. This, along with 2-factor authentication, ensures your users are secure when working from the office or home.
Ransomware works in a few ways, including:
Delivery: This is typically via email and SecureMail will block the mails containing Malware.
Installation: To infect a PC, Ransomware needs to find a weakness (vulnerability) that regular patching and Anti-virus with anti-malware features will cover.
By combining the IT Security Toolbox and Cyber Insurance the average 20-user company would be paying less than R60 000 a year for protection against an attack.
The cost of an attack if it were to happen averages R4 million in a country that is the 3rd most targeted in the world. This is before reputational damage and PoPIA (Protection of Personal Information Act) breach fines are added.
