Network Security

Network security is essential for every business.  At Ascendant, we consider network security equivalent to locking the front door of your house, or having an alarm system.  Ascendant has several methods to secure your company without turning your business network into Area-51.  Practical IT security is a balance between usability and protection.  Interested in securing your network?  Ask us about malware protection, firewalls, or staff training to recognize dangerous content on the web or in your email inbox.

  • Firewall hardware
  • Antivirus software
  • Malware protection
  • Staff training

Your strongest defense against hackers, spam, malware and ransomware is a hardware-based firewall. Firewalls protect your business network and are scalable as your business grows.  A firewall’s main objective is to prevent “bad” traffic from coming in or out of your network.  A firewall can be very sophisticated piece of hardware that requires an IT professional for installation and maintenance.  Don’t go it alone!  Still have questions?  Reach out to us (732) 563-2675.

Ascendant’s management software will include our antivirus and malware protection software.  In addition to pushing important updates and patches to your PC’s & servers after work hours.  Having the latest versions of the operating software and security patches are essential to maintaining a secure business network.

We often notice it’s the same employees infecting the company network.  Ascendant offers end user training to spot malicious email & content on the web.  This training is very user friendly and reduces the overall business risk. If necessary, we can evaluate staff directly, assess high risk users and schedule them for follow-up training.
