Why we offer an evaluation of your computer security – absolutely free
Our experience tells us that six out of 10 small- to mid-sized businesses in Southern Maryland will experience a network or technology disaster.
What if a major storm, flood, or fire destroyed your office and all of your files? Or if a virus wiped out your server?
For businesses who struggle with technology or network security crises, the average cost of fixing these disasters can cost anywhere between $9,000 and $60,000 – and that does not include lost productivity, sales, and client goodwill that can be damaged when a company can’t operate or fulfill on its promises due to a broken system.
We will evaluate the security of your network for free because we believe that by preventing security catastrophes before they occurs will help keep the businesses in our Southern Maryland community strong.
Do you make these mistakes with your computer security?
Just look at some of these potential security nightmares our free evaluations have encountered right here in the Southern Maryland region:
- Out-of-date updates/hotfixes
- Expired or out-of-date antivirus/Antispyware software
- Blacklisted server IP address preventing company from receiving essential email
- Broken backup device (unbeknownst to client, their backup hadn’t worked for a year)
- No backup device
- Expired software licenses
- Employee visits to inappropriate websites and exposing the company to security threats
- No firewall
Many small business owners tend to ignore or forget about taking steps to secure their company’s network from these types of catastrophes until disaster strikes. By then it’s too late and the damage is done.
Small business owners tend to think that because they are ” just a small business”, no one would hack their network. Nothing could be further from the truth.
We performed an experiment to verify the danger for ourselves.
In our workshop, we connected a single computer to the internet with no firewall.
Within hours, over 13 gigabytes of space was taken over with malicious code and files that could not be deleted. The simple fact is there are thousands of unscrupulous individuals out there who think its fun to disable your computer just because they can.
Predatory individuals strike randomly by searching the internet for open, unprotected ports. As soon as they find one, they will delete files or download huge files that cannot be deleted shutting down your hard drive. They can also use your computer as a zombie for storing pirated software or sending spam which will cause your ISP to shut YOU down and prevent you from access the Internet or sending and receiving e-mail.
If the malicious programs can’t be deleted, you’ll have to reformat the entire hard drive causing you to lose every piece of information you’ve ever owned UNLESS you were backing up your files properly.
