Network Security


  A great video I found on YouTube with an excellent way to remember complicated passwords.  All passwords should be a minimum of 8 characters and should not be in the dictionary.  So passwords like: elizabeth, Marybeth1980, TommySmith, etc. are all examples of very bad passwords.  An example of a good password would be: .Pu*R8b7wFbMiZK or ?]:8ml~~(B1.      ...

We will investigate where your malware is coming from and what effects it has had on your system, if any personal data has been compromised, and clean the infected material from you computer.  Many trojans steal your personal information and send it to attackers all over the world; the worst of this is the fact that most people don’t even realize it is happening.   The cleanup process has been refined over the past few years. It’s very effective, but continues to evolve. The process is both manual and automated. The automated elements are quite restricted. Every cleanup is handled by a malware analyst whose responsibility it is to look through the results, identify anomalies and clean manually as required. The beauty of it is that the cleanup is included in every package for the no additional fees.

We can help your home or company prevent and monitor unauthorized access, misuse, modification, or denial of the computer network and network-accessible resources. Network security starts from authenticating the user, commonly with a username and a password. Since this requires just one thing besides the user name, i.e. the password which is something you ‘know’, this is sometimes termed one factor authentication. With two factor authentication something you ‘have’ is also used (e.g. a security token or ‘dongle’, an ATM card, or your mobile phone), or with three factor authentication something you ‘are’ is also used (e.g. a fingerprint or retinal scan). Once authenticated, a firewall enforces access policies such as what services are allowed to be accessed by the network users Though effective to prevent unauthorized access, this component may fail to check potentially harmful content such as computer worms or Trojans being transmitted over the network. Anti-virus software or an intrusion prevention system (IPS) help detect and inhibit the action of such malware. An anomaly-based intrusion detection system may also monitor the network and traffic for unexpected (i.e. suspicious) content or behavior and other anomalies to protect resources, e.g. from denial of service attacks or an employee accessing files at strange times. Individual events occurring on the network may be logged for audit purposes and for later high level analysis. Communication between two hosts using a network could be encrypted to maintain...
