Network Security

One of the most significant challenges facing any organisation dependent on Information Systems is ensuring the security of the information stored within the data and file systems hosted by the Network.

Unified Solutions Australia provides complete security solutions protecting information systems from the threat of outside attack and internal compromise. Malicious attacks on a computer network can take a number of forms. A seemingly random event such as a virus attack can lead to loss of function, significant down-time and the potential loss of critical data. Other attempts are more directed at compromising the network through a denial of service attack. This can also lead to significant down-time and loss of productivity whilst the issues are resolved. The largest threat and most damaging is a direct attack on a network aimed at the destruction or theft of critical and sensitive data.

Unified Solutions Australia provides options for protection of information systems at all points of vulnerability. Firewall and intrusion protections systems for external interfaces are coupled with, email and web filtering solutions to ensure protection from outside the network. A complete internal security configuration for the network, when bundled with robust and secure backup solutions, offer a comprehensive security regime that protects the data which is stored in the Network.

Unified Solutions Australia aims to ensure that the security parameters are set at a high level to protect the organisation from attack, whilst maintaining a balance of usability based on the client operating systems and other applications in the environment.

Our approach is to organise a full network security audit, conducted by certified professional’s, to ensure an exhaustive interrogation of your network resources are captured. Upon acceptance of the Audit report, Unified Solutions Australia will Modify your Hardware and Software solutions to secure external and internal access to your network.

This may include provision and configuration of the following:

• What is the cost of reconstructing your company’s financial, personnel and other business data?
• Would your business insurance cover any or all of the cost of replacing data?
• How long would it take to reconstruct your business data?
• Do you know the cost per hour to your business of server downtime?

Once your Disaster Plan is complete, copies should be kept both on and off site for easy access.
The disaster recovery plan will cover the following items:

Firewall and intrusion detection devices
Email and Web filtering solutions
Secure remote access solutions, including VPNs and secure web services
Protect servers, network devices and client computers from unwanted and insecure access. These servers should be secured to the highest possible level, while maintaining a balance of usability based on the client operating systems and other applications in the environment.
Secure corporate applications. This task is most commonly managed within each application, however, some basic security measures can be undertaken to ensure only authorised users can be provided with access to these applications.
Update and document network security practices with respect to applications and electronic file management. The configuration of the file structures and security groups are agreed to by our clients prior to implementation.
Secure electronic file structures. This includes the configuration of network security groups and a common login script for all users.
