IT Security

What is a firewall and why do we need to worry about having a firewall? Once you’re connected to the internet or part of a network, your computer is potentially visible to anyone else on the network.

A firewall sits between the computer and the network. It controls which computers can connect to the network and which services are accessible. Protecting yourself from malware or mal-use with the use of a firewall is essential.

Here at ICON ITS we offer complete Firewall, web and email security services with easy to use intuitive graphical management interfaces.

Content Filtering

There are a whole host of reasons why content filtering is important in today’s technology driven environment. Here at ICON ITS we know content filtering isn’t just about restricting access to inappropriate websites. There are increasing network threats coming from internal sources because employees can unknowingly surf websites which contain malicious software like Trojan horses, spyware or worms. Finding ways to prevent internal users from surfing dangerous websites is an important issue for businesses. This malicious software can infect the corporate network and if it does, the network is destabilised, security is breached and data, software and hardware are all at risk.

Content Filter services can be used to screen and exclude access to web pages that are deemed objectionable, not business related or that can be seen to have malicious software embedded.

Our content filtering solutions can reduce costs and extend protection by combining a comprehensive, continuously integrated database featuring millions of URLs, IP addresses and domains. This integrated database includes ESOFT.

Our solutions help businesses to manage, restrict and log access to URL’s or content categories. Content filtering can help businesses:

  • Improve employee productivity
  • Preserve network bandwidth
  • Minimise liability exposure
  • Comply with Government Regulations
