ICT Security

Our Services Education Services Support Centre Typical Clients
At Online PC Support our experience has found that unless ICT security is reviewed, analysed and managed appropriately your establishment may find themselves in a position where your system could become corrupt, compromised or simply inconvenienced by unnecessary downtime.

Often overlooked, something as simple as restricting your end users, particularly staff who take home laptops, from having full administrative access to their computers, for example, can not only protect data but also prevent unnecessary problems from occurring. Following our few simple steps and working with us to review your ICT security policies and their implementation, we can not only reduce your ICT overheads but also improve the end user’s experiences when using ICT devices and systems.

We have found that inappropriate management of security products, typically Anti-Virus and Internet Content Filtering provides opportunity for rogue applications and users to bypass the protection implemented within schools. A small investment in time and policy review can easily avoid these security holes from being exploited, and given that nearly half of all schools do not implement a strict backup and update schedule due to lack of experience or time, we can help you avoid the inevitable collapse of devices or even whole ICT systems.

Our Services

Internet Filtering
As an organisation, you are responsible for the data that travels over your wires.

Working with Websense, the global leader in unified web and data content security we can provide you unparalleled protection against advanced & persistent threats, loss of data and user abuse.

Offering total user accountability and completely automated reporting mechanisms, we can help you control your staff's productivity with as much or as little control as desired, all from a web driven, familiar graphical interface.

According to the Websense 2010 Threat Report, throughout the last year alone the number of malicious internet websites grew by 111.4%, of which nearly 80% were legitimate websites that had been compromised.

With threats becoming more complex and advanced, superior Anti-Virus is a necessity for any computer attached to a network or the internet. Using AVG’s internationally recognised security software we work with your establishment to keep both your users and your software vigilant and defended against exploitation or theft.

Asset Management
Efficient asset management and control gives educational establishments the power and flexibility required to raise standards of education and system control whilst minimising operational costs.

We can deploy and monitor software agents across your existing ICT platform to automate and streamline the reporting, collecting and management of software and hardware assets, allowing you to stay in control of your system life cycle, software licensing status and ensuring all ICT equipment is insured in the event of equipment loss or theft.

With ICT systems expanding on a daily basis, this has never been a more vital yet complex task and with a centralised inventory, you remain in control of your assets whilst minimising unnecessary use of ICT resources.

Our experience and expertise within the IT sector has proven our ability to secure and monitor any ICT system no matter how large or complex it may be. With a range of software and hardware solutions available to us we can recommend the most affordable and suitable solutions for your environment.

Our team of IT Experts are exposed on a regular basis to the latest security vulnerabilities and threats, and have the most up to date experience and knowledge when it comes to helping our customers. From one-off advice to full system consultations, we are proud of our insight and ability to think independently, offering truly invaluable advice throughout your project, whilst following our consistent and proven approach to problem solving.

Risk Assessment
Usage Policy
Risk assessments are an integral part of day to day school life, however ICT is often overlooked. Protecting both your investment and your pupils, staff and data is our top priority, helping you to comply with your care of duty whilst at the same time remaining cost conscious.

From full disaster recovery in the event of fire or theft to data protection with appropriate security and user rights, we will ensure that even the brightest sparks within your schools (or even those from the outside) are unable to penetrate into the areas that should otherwise be secured.

Thanks to our extensive experience we know where to look and what to look for to help you factor in all aspects of your ICT risk assessment through onsite consultation and remote investigation complimented by fully prepared reports and recommendations.

Modern computers can enable businesses to incorporate exceedingly efficient and productive workflow techniques, however unrestricted control within technology can lead to data loss, mistakes and irreversible damage.

It is therefore essential that protection and security measures are implemented using built-in tools and features to "lock-down" the computer environment, restricting access to and control of critical features.

Our advanced knowledge can offer you a standardised, flexible yet fully restricted security policy across your entire ICT system.
