Urban Network, like most IT aware businesses understand that email is one of the main forms of communication for organisations. In fact email is essential, but it is also the most frequent way in which a network is compromised for security. Research shows 90% of all virus infections are sourced via email. As well as viruses, there are many other risks to a business email system, from Phishing, Identity Theft and Spam email, right the way up to interception of supposedly secure data transmissions.
Urban Network advises organisations to take a layered approach to securing their email systems, and we can assist you in protecting this critical communication method. Our first step is advising and working with companies to produce email policies for staff adoption, simple steps such as not opening un-expected email attachments, through to not using company systems for personal mass communication, there are some steps that can be taken without expense to minimise the risks of security failures. Following on from protecting as much as possible the human factor, there are some excellent and effective technologies that Urban Network can deploy for your business to add the ‘layers’ of security.
Email Server Application
Urban Network have been designing and deploying email solutions for our customers for over a decade. Through providing protection through additional layers (SSL Certificates, VPN, encryption, etc.). Urban Network have the exposure and experience required to secure your email. We understand the way that malicious code is designed, and we architect and configure our systems to give the best possible protection to the businesses we serve. This is achieved by continually following standard practice, but also by keeping informed of threats, and making changes and applying regular vendor patches to prevent exposure. We protect your business, so you can concentrate on running your business.
Stopping unwanted or unsolicited email from ever being received is a key part of the multi-layered protection strategy. In addition to preventing unwanted email from entering the system, modern Anti-Spam solutions also ensure that any email is also cleaned of viruses before it is received. This adds additional scanning for malicious code, and it is carried out prior to it being received, adding a protective barrier to your systems. As well as this, our Anti-Spam solutions offer a storage service in the event of the email server being offline, this will cache email until your server is ready to receive it again. Urban Network have been deploying Anti-Spam technology since its inception, and we can implement a solution for your business.
It is widely recognised that Anti-Virus is essential, but managing and keeping the software up-to-date is often over-looked. Urban Network’s powerful Anti-Virus is central to protecting many facets of our customers businesses email making Anti-Virus one of the key parts of protection. If your organisation has an on-premise email server, then this needs a bespoke configuration of Anti-Virus installed to ensure email is clean after it is received. Desktop Anti-Virus is also critical, as this can protect the end-point at the stage when any email is opened.
Modern Firewalls are also integral to protecting businesses emails, and Urban Network have been configuring our range of Enterprise Firewalls to do just that since we began. Firewalls can prevent any threats that infect workstations, including any guests to the network, from accessing the web from within an organisation. By preventing port access from internal to the network from contacting the outside world, Urban Network can give you control over what email is sent and what types of emails are sent. Additionally, Firewalls can have additional applications configured to scan incoming email to further enhance the ‘layers’ of protection.
