  • Question – Are we really at risk?

    The simply answer unfortunately is yes. Recent reports would seem to suggest that there has been a 15% increase in security breaches for SMEs over the past 5 years, making it clear that this group is being targeted more than ever by third party cyber criminals and users with malicious intent. Furthermore, SMEs that are able to manage their cyber security effectively have a competitive advantage in today’s online, interactive world. This problem is exacerbated by the fact that many SMEs lack the required knowledge when it comes to cyber security.

    Solution

    We provide a wide range of IT & Security services that can be tailored to fit any organisation, no matter what the size of budget or head count you have. All of our services are designed to help your organisation to identify and understand where their risks lie and to provide cost effective solutions to help you to mitigate and manage these risks, sometimes even preventing any security breach from occurring in the first place. We take the worry out of your hands and put it into ours, leaving you with the knowledge that you are protected and so enable you to focus your attention and resources where they are needed the most.




    Question – I need IT but dont know where to start?
