Internet Security

At Smart IT, we take internet security very seriously.

Online threats are constantly changing and evolving so it’s crucial you have the right software in place to keep you constantly protected.

We recommend Symantec's market-leading Message Labs managed internet security services for your email and web usage.

Email spam and viruses are a continual challenge for any organisation which receives thousands of harmful and unwanted messages every day.

Spam accounts for around 70% of worldwide emails whilst malicious attachments account for around 3%.

With external email scanning, you don’t need to worry about spam and viruses, leaving you to focus on getting on with the day to day running of your business.

Here are just some of the benefits which Smart IT can bring to your business:

Email security

  • Total email security: protects both inbound and outbound email traffic.

  • Resource savings: no investment for installation or maintenance of hardware and software is required, including the updating of spam and virus software.

  • Less bandwidth: removes spam and viruses, so only wanted emails are sent to your internal mail server.

  • Additional backup: if your mail server is unavailable, you are immediately notified and all emails are queued for up to 7 days.

  • Easy administration: the web based administration console provides a general overview of an organisation’s email traffic and allows you to easily set up email rules, manage spam and quarantine processes.

  • Internet security

    • Total web security: our service scans both inbound and outbound web traffic, instant messaging traffic and rule-based traffic. The entire content of websites is scanned including banners, scripts, Hotmail traffic etc, and the user receives notification if the content is blocked.

    • Resource-saving: with an external, hosted solution, there is no need for a company to invest in the installation or operation of hardware and software, including updating antivirus software.

    • Scanning in real-time: all traffic is scanned for malware in real-time, without a noticeable delay to the user. Spyware and viruses are stopped at the Internet level before they can infiltrate your network and damage or infect your business computers.

    • Pro-active scanning: this solution uses several leading virus scanners combined with heuristic scanning, which pro-actively captures as yet unknown malware. This means that the company is protected against all types of virus attacks - including those not yet discovered by traditional antivirus scanners. Remember - prevention is better than cure.

    • Supports an organisation’s Internet policy: you can control web rules for users and groups by URL categories, types of content and time intervals. This also means that as a company, you can comply with your own or industry-regulated requirements for employee behaviour on the Internet.

    • Easy administration and reporting: the web-based administration module provides real-time reporting of blocked malware and control over web rules.
