Managed Security

Protect yourself from hackers

Health IT's Security Stack

For more than 20 years, we’ve been providing anti-virus software to help protect your computers, and backups to keep you safe from data loss.

Today, the bad actors (hackers, organised crime, foreign agencies) have never had so much opportunity and so many tools at their disposal to try and get their hands on your data.

The days of having a simple firewall or antivirus program installed are gone. In the 21st century, a multi-layered approach is necessary.

Our security stack is a collection of different security products that satisfies The Essential Eight (the Australian Cyber Security Framework) to affordably mitigate the risk of data breach or loss. It can be used to solve security compliance for GP Accreditation, or simply to ensure you are doing what your insurance policy says you are doing to reduce risk. More Information on The Essential Eight

Multi Factor Authentication (or 2FA)

Multi Factor Authentication (or MFA, or 2FA) is a simple idea that provides a tremendous improvement in security.

By requiring something you know (username and password) AND something you have (mobile phone), security is increased by an order of magnitude.

You may have MFA turned on already for banking and accounting, or for cloud systems.

Our MFA solution, Duo, can also protect your data whenever it is accessed remotely.

This is the new normal for remote access to confidential information – if it’s important, protect it with MFA!

Data Breaches

From February 2018, you MUST take reasonable steps to ensure the safety of personal data held in your systems.

Security Audits from Health IT

A comprehensive review of your internal and external security should be completed annually or after significant change. A test restore of your system should be included to ensure your data is safe.

Health IT does great Backups

In our aim to secure every one of our clients, we can provide cost effective and comprehensive backup for your PC or Mac. A regular backup schedule makes a world of difference. Our take on ‘what good looks like’ for backups includes smaller hourly backups of important files, with at least one full backup taken each week.

Security for Websites

WordPress has made it easy for anybody to have a dynamic and beautiful web site. However this has made it a huge security target. If your website is important it requires backing up, securing and regular maintenance.
