YOUR MOST VALUABLE ASSET IS YOUR DATA

High profile privacy breaches. Data theft. Downtime. These are major IT Security issues that every business has to face.

With new vulnerabilities being discovered everyday, it’s likely that your IT infrastructure is less secure than you think.

While there are costs to ensure you have adequate protection, the costs of being hit by one of the multiple threats out there are exponentially higher.

Your most valuable asset is your data. There are constant attempts to breach your security, and if your systems are exposed, not only could this have huge ramifications for your business, and negatively impact your customers.

Under Australia’s Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) legislation, companies are obliged to notify individuals whose personal information has been compromised in the event of any data breach that is likely to result in serious harm. Companies and their Directors may even be fined for violations of the legislation. Making sure your data systems are secure has never been more important.

Centrix understands the full spectrum of security threats, and can implement a holistic approach to securing your business. We will carefully analyse all your existing systems, identify any vulnerabilities, and go about addressing potential weak-points, to give you the best level of protection possible.

By combining the latest technologies and staff training, we can help safeguard your business against those security threats.

01

SECURITY CONSULTING

The security challenges faced by businesses today are multifaceted and constantly changing. It can be time consuming and costly to keep ahead of the many potential threats to your business, but ignoring the threats could cost you more.

Centrix offers extensive security consulting to ensure you are protected at all times.

Our team of cyber-security professionals will analyse the entire spectrum of your IT assets, including operating systems, network devices, databases and applications. This allows us to identify gaps in your current security architecture, and provide recommendations for closing those gaps.

We work with you to address vulnerabilities and enhance your security defence mechanisms.

To ensure your security remains up-to-date, Centrix provides ongoing assessment testing to ensure full protection.

02

FIREWALL & NETWORKING SECURITY

Modern networks have multiple entry points and many users, resulting in a greater risk of infiltration. Firewalls and other border protection systems are essential for your network’s security.

While businesses in the past had to compromise on network performance if they opted for higher levels of security, the latest generation of firewalls provide strong protection without eroding performance.

Centrix has the expertise and systems in place to ensure you have the right protection for your business needs, with the strongest prevention measures against attacks and intrusions. Centrix will assist in the configuration of firewalls, allowing you to retain all the control you require over users, applications and data. With real-time visibility, you will be able to fully control the flow of traffic through your network.

Speak with Centrix today to learn how to balance performance and security for your network.

03

WEB AND EMAIL SECURITY

The Internet is the most obvious entry point for threats that, if left unchecked, can undermine your entire system.

Staff may inadvertently access compromised websites, or click on malicious links or attachments in phishing emails.

Web and Email Security is part of Centrix’ multi-layered security approach. By stopping threats at this top layer, your entire system’s security is enhanced, and you will save on the recovery and repair costs associated with security breaches.

Centrix will also train your staff on strategies to identify and mitigate the risks, because prevention is always better than cure.

Contact Centrix today to enhance your protection and put your mind at ease.

04

NEXT GEN ANTI-VIRUS

Did you know? Traditional anti-virus software can only intercept a fraction of the malware and cyber-threats that exist today.

It’s likely that the current anti-virus software you are using cannot provide the full protection that your IT systems need. That means that your antivirus software is almost certainly not able to protect your IT systems from malicious and potentially costly attacks.

Next Gen Anti-Virus systems give you a much higher level of protection than your traditional anti-virus software. With Next Gen Anti-Virus, you get the best level of endpoint protection as it approaches the task of stopping threats in a fundamentally different way. It uses algorithms to detect and block dangerous tools, tactics, techniques and procedures.

With the threats becoming more sophisticated, your defence systems need to become more sophisticated too. Call Centrix now to ensure you get the protection you need.

05

MULTI-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION AND SSO

With the amount of different systems that your staff need access to, they are likely to repeat the same passwords or select weak passwords that are easily remembered. This can represent a significant vulnerability in your system.

Ensuring your staff are using strong passwords as well as implementing Single Sign-On (SSO) and Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) can help minimise the chances of password-related breaches.

With an SSO system set up across all your platforms, it is easier to set a robust password procedure, as staff only need to remember a single password.

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is an additional layer of security above and beyond the username and password. MFA systems, for example can send a unique code to a mobile device to ensure a login attempt is legitimate.

Speak with Centrix today about implementing MFA and SSO to give you the security you need.

06

CYBER SECURITY AWARENESS TRAINING

Security-savvy staff is your best line of defence.

Staff who are aware of the nature of current cyber-threats, and know how to properly access, handle and store your sensitive data, can help mitigate the risks to your business.

While phishing, social engineering and malware may be understood by your IT team, are they understood by the rest of your staff?

With training by Centrix, your staff will have a much better awareness of the IT-related risks, and what steps they should take when they suspect something isn’t quite right.

Through providing your staff with the knowledge and tools they need to protect the business, you will significantly increase the chances that your systems remain protected.

Speak with Centrix now to enhance your protection with comprehensive staff training.

See how happy our clients are

We have implemented a significant change from engaging Centrix. Centrix provided a snapshot of our existing set up and proposed alternatives. Our migration to Office 365 has settled a large range of email issues we were experiencing. The massive changes we have implemented have given us a level of comfort in terms of reliability and security.

We would recommend Centrix to others. We found them easy to deal with, able to talk in laymen’s terms and offer a desirable solution. We selected Centrix over 3 other providers as they gave us the most confidence that they could satisfy our needs.

Group Financial Controller, Austral Monsoon Group

Before engaging Centrix we were concerned that we may not be able to get the same level of support as someone full time. What we actually found was that staff became less dependent on our internal IT resource and attempted to fix their own problems before contacting external support.

We’ve experienced great ticket resolution times between 3-8 hours and we now have multiple people who are across how Altura Learning IT infrastructure works. Our IT works, we have better documentation and Centrix have provided solutions that covered both offices in Australia and UK. Prior to this our single IT administrator had to cover both countries from Australia, which resulted in poor working hours.

Centrix have proved to be an effective IT solution for Altura Learning – They fit well and offer good solutions to SME’s.

Grant Ricker
Chief Operating Officer, Altura Learning

Engaging Centrix to look after our IT has allowed myself and the business to focus on our own business activities. We had previously spent a lot of time working on our IT and never to a level of knowledge or professionalism we receive from Centrix. This alone represents a huge saving in terms of cost and administrative hassle.

Having worked through multiple IT systems and relocations, Centrix has always been consultative and offered me practical solutions for Salvo’s requirements.

Centrix support is hands down the best I’ve experienced, IT help is consistently responsive. With our latest IT update, Salvo staff are also able to work from any of our locations and anywhere else which helps the business ensure the best possible outcome for our own customers.

I would say Centrix are extremely technically competent, but also have a very clear view of our business so everything is done in a way that works for us.
