Secure IT Solutions – The Advantage Technologies Way
Ransomware and other cybersecurity threats continue to make international headlines. This has made security top of mind for many businesses. Every business needs an innovative technological solution that is both ongoing and real-time to make sure their data and network is secure. The ability to sense potential threats early is a game changer following the adage of releasing “canaries in the coal mine”.
With more than 20 years of IT experience, we partner with like-minded entrepreneurs on your path to technology success. If you follow the three S’s – Specialized, Secure, and Supported – your company’s digital workflow will be tailored to your business needs and implemented for efficiency and security. Today, we look at the second of these S’s – Secure.
Secure Technology Solutions
Advantage Technology uses a proprietary combination of real-time AI and human monitoring coupled with effective hardware platforms to help with your cybersecurity. Our services include a uniquely designed Advanced Security Platform incorporating network solutions with industry-leading security that is regulatory compliant, effective, and comprehensive.
As part of the onboarding process, recommended hardware and software is installed to ensure your network is secure from ransomware attacks. Our team ensures that you have the right firewall, gateway anti-virus, plus content filtering and monitoring to build a strong security platform.
Real-time security updates and responses are one of the cornerstones of the security platform. Using a proprietary combination of AI with human oversight, our clients’ networks are monitored for threats to their network 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our human security team helps remediate cybersecurity threats using fast response, and knowledgeable and friendly engineers.
That’s where our AI takes over on this path to cybersecurity. Our AI technology analyzes hacker tradecraft real-time and creates reports to help remediate cyber threats. To help ensure the security of your network, we also have virtual “canaries.”
“Canaries in a coalmine” is an idiom that is something that gives an early warning of danger like a canary taken into a mine. Advantage Technologies uses virtual canaries to allow us faster detection of ransomware or other threats. If any of the canaries are triggered, our security team is immediately notified.
Once detected, there is an automatic lockdown of the infected device, isolating it from the network until the nature of the threat can be determined. This helps prevent ransomware or viruses from spreading throughout your network, allowing you peace of mind.
As a business, it is crucial to have backup systems in place for unplanned events (fire, flood, theft, equipment failure, etc.). We utilize a CloudPlus backup system which includes standby servers, image-based backups, and cloud-to-cloud backup systems. This ensures that in the event there is potential hardware malfunction or data loss for any reason, your data can be retrieved quickly and easily potentially minimizing your downtime to hours not days or weeks.
A secure and efficient network platform is integral to smooth day-to-day operations. Advantage Technologies partners with you to ensure you have the security measures in place for the success of your business. Our next blog will discuss the third part of your path to success – Supported IT solutions designed for your business. The next blog will be posted on June 29th.
