Data Security

Data Security is primarily about putting the right systems in place and keeping them up-to-date!  So not only is it a good idea to use hardware and software that is reasonably up-to-date – it is also a good idea to ensure that updates and patches supplied by the software developers are also applied as soon as possible after release.  Part of Motherboard’s service is to ensure that your systems are kept up-to-date at all times.

With good hardware in place (Motherboard recommends HP and Dell in particular) and up-to-date software you have a good platform in place for your company.  But it is most important that you have a good antivirus solution in place and that you apply encryption to any devices that are taken outside secure locations.

The ESET Antivirus Solution

Motherboard are proud to be an authorised ESET reseller and highly recommend what is currently the best business antivirus software in its class – ESET Endpoint Protection.

This cutting-edge software detects and disables viruses, Trojans, worms, adware, spyware, phishing, rootkits and other internet threats – and has a far better detection rate than other similar software offerings.

A great asset with this software is that it has an extremely small system footprint, meaning that users of ESET will not experience a slowdown when this application is running!

Encrypt IT – Device Protection by Encryption

Motherboard are proud to be an authorised Encrypt IT by DESlock+ reseller and highly recommend the installation of this software for those companies who need to ensure that their devices are encrypted.

Encrypt IT is a simple-to-use encryption application for companies large and small.

Clients using Encrypt IT have minimal user interaction, increasing user compliance and the security of your data.

Encrypt IT allows you to meet your data security compliance obligations in a single package.

Data is a critical part of every organisation, but this most valuable asset often poses a huge risk when it travels or is transmitted beyond the corporate network.  Full disk and removable media encryption protect laptop computers against the unexpected.

File, folder and email encryption allow fully secure collaboration across complex workgroups and team boundaries, with security policy enforced at all endpoints by the Encrypt IT Enterprise Server.
