Network connectivity and Security is a vital consideration whether you have a single Macintosh or a complex multi-site network to manage. Sollos Technology Solutions provides services for proper secure network configuration and a suite of security solutions for your business.
While Apple's Airport Base Stations provide best of class wireless solutions, Sollos recommends most businesses implement a dedicated firewall solution as their edge network device. Sollos implements best of class Open Source firewall solutions for our clients that provide professional-grade functionality at affordable pricing. Our firewall solutions include traffic filtering, scheduled functionality, powerful traffic reporting features, and multiple VPN options including site-to-site VPN for multi-site networks.
While historically Macintosh system have rarely been the target of viruses, they do exist and with the increasing marketshare and profile for Apple products the potential for future virus attacks will grow. Additionally it is important to realize that even if your Mac cannot get a Windows virus, it can pass that virus on if infected files pass through the machine. While Sollos does not suggest employing invasive commercial virus solutions that are available for Mac OS X, we do utilize the same antivirus technology that Apple implements within the Mac OS X Server product. ClamAV is an Open Source virus solution that can scan your files for viruses without the overhead and compatibility problems that plague most commercial antivirus tools for Mac OS X.
Backup is an important aspect of your security considerations. Sollos will help your company implement a redundant backup solution including Time Machine hourly backups, periodic full system cloning as well as offsite disaster recovery.
Laptop Data Encryption
Apple OS X and iOS devices can be configured for full device encryption to protect your data from theft should your device be stolen. Sollos can configure all your business devices to require encryption, complex passwords and abide by other network security policies.
