We offer a range of cyber security products to complement your infrastructure:


Threat Protection

With cyber attacks on the rise all organisations should be preparing for ‘when’ not ‘if’ their network is targeted. We provide a threat protection platform that works in parallel with anti virus products and inspects traffic at the network layer to block packets being sent to unauthorised locations. The platform works by:

  • Fiercely protecting your endpoints against ransomware
    Proactive protection is what you need to stop ransomware from encrypting your endpoints, the platform closes vulnerabilities and sanitizes your Internet traffic to stop ransomware from infecting your endpoints.
  • Preventing data leakage and enhance your uptime
    Preventing data breaches by blocking communication between malware and its C&C servers. By analyzing all HTTP, HTTPS and DNS traffic, Heimdal stops malware from harvesting confidential data from your endpoints.
  • Automating patch and software management
    Automate your patch management to save time and resources, this blocks 85% of web attack angles.

Anti-Virus Endpoint Protection

Traditional anti-virus software is no longer enough to protect against malicious threats like ransomware and malvertising, and the latest phishing schemes are becoming more and more difficult to distinguish from real emails. However, anti-virus still plays an integral role in the protection of endpoints on your network and server infrastructure.

Keeping your data secure is a multi-stage plan that not only includes advanced end-point threat protection software, but also involves education and training for you and your team.

Backup and Disaster Recovery

Data backup is arguably more important now than ever before.  By implementing a robust backup strategy we can provide you with peace of mindand ensure you’re up and running quickly if the worst happens to preserve business continuity. Best of all, our experts take care of all the details so you don’t need to. We encourage all customers to adopt the 3-2-1 for backup.

The 3-2-1 rule became a popular concept thanks to Peter Krogh, a well-known photographer who wrote that there are two groups of people: those who have already had a storage failure and those who will have one in the future. In other words, the 3-2-1 backup rule means you should:

  • Have at least three copies of your data.
  • Store the copies on two different media.
  • Keep one backup copy offsite.
