Network Security

As threats become more sophisticated, traditional network security is no longer enough. The current threat landscape requires advanced approaches to network security, which our experienced consultants can help with. They will cover approaches such as Intelligent Firewalls, segregated network architectures, sophisticated content and application control.

Email and Cloud Security

Email is currently the most active cyber-attack medium threatening Australian businesses today. It delivers not only productivity-destroying SPAM but also malware and malicious phishing attacks. With our email and cloud security services in place all non-legitimate content will be actively blocked or quarantined.

End-Point Protection

Endpoint security software (traditional known as Antivirus software) is as vital as ever in the fight to protect your computers from attack. With our advanced endpoint security offering, we leverage the power of deep learning to provide next generation Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) capabilities.

Why is cybersecurity important?

A strong cybersecurity stance is paramount in today’s world, not only for the protection and defence of your organisation, but also to action a successful response in the event of a breach.

Cyber-security threats and data breaches are becoming increasingly rampant, sophisticated and difficult to mitigate. Even more worrying is the rising cost of cybercrime to businesses. In Australia, the average cost of a single cybercrime is about $276,000. Implementing a robust cybersecurity system is a vital investment for all Organisations.

However, Cybersecurity is not a one-size-fits-all kind of investment; many organisations, especially SMEs and start-ups, struggle to make the right security choices. The Brisbane Cybersecurity experts at Grassroots IT are here to help you in any way we can.
