IT Security for your business
Firewall Security - Protect Your Network From Harmful Traffic
Today, most people who use computers are accustomed with the term “Firewall” and know it has something to do with security. To ensure complete protection, corporate houses need an in-depth analysis of how a firewall works and where to place them. In computer networks, firewalls block or allow network traffic based on a set of dynamic rules and policies. It protects networks and PCs against intrusion from potentially dangerous incoming traffic or black hats.
Firewall Security - How does it work?
There are several types of firewalls, and each uses a different approach to filtering. The first-generation firewalls work as packet filters whereas the second generation comprised of the so called stateful firewalls, which adds a parameter to filter setup. The third-generation firewalls were built to filter information across all levels of the OSI model.
At the primary level, firewalls can prevent traffic intended for particular IP addresses or server ports. Companies typically set up their firewalls to let incoming connections to port. This lets visitors get at a corporate web site. The company employees who have proper credentials including username and password will be allowed access through a secure connection mainly a virtual private network (or VPN).
When it is configured in the correct manner, firewall security provides protection against threats including the Denial Of Service attacks. Such attacks occur when an intruder makes an attempt to storm a corporate website with a good deal of traffic, so much so that it brings the web server down and potentially allows the intruder to break into it.

Penetration Testing To Evaluate The Security Of An IT Infrastructure
Penetration testing (or pen test) is a noble attempt to judge the security of an IT infrastructure by safely trying to exploit vulnerabilities. The vulnerabilities may exist in operating systems, services, application flaws or risky end-user behavior. Such assessments are also useful in validating the efficiency of defensive mechanisms. Be it small, medium, or large business, penetration testing not only enables you to improve security, but also facilitate a more efficient and effective usage of budget resources.
At NetAdmins the penetration tests are basically performed using manual or automated technologies to systematically compromise servers, web applications, wireless networks, mobile devices and other prospective points of exposure.
Our penetration tests are performed in a controlled environment using means and methods similar to those that an unauthorized attacker would use to penetrate an organization’s IT & communication system. Once we find any vulnerability, we establish the impact of vulnerability and bring you remediation advice. This lets our clients know the implications on business followed by identifying the opportunities to improve the system, design & development process along with the operational policies & procedures.
What Does Penetration Testing Mean to a Business?
A penetration test is a crucial component to network security. Through these tests a business in Saint John can identify:
- Security vulnerabilities before a hacker does
- Gaps in information security compliance
- The response time of their information security team,
- The potential real-world effect of a data breach or cyber security attack
- Actionable remediation guidance
So, count on our Penetration testing to protect your network or business from risks before occurrence of any attack or security breaches. We can also help train and test your employees.

Off-Site (Cloud) Backup
Your data and computer systems are the heart of your business, and no one can afford to have the system down for long. Gone are the days where an off-site backup meant taking tapes or disks home and keeping them properly rotated in your backup system. An off-site or cloud backup not only protects your system from a physical catastrophe like a fire or break in, but Ransomware and equipment failure can also destroy your data. This applies to both your live systems and the local backup storage.
With NetAdmins off-Site Backup, your information is safely stored in the Cloud, and can be recovered by system or by file. This also protects those accidental deletions and changes that can happen.
