Network Security

Why does my business need network security?

You may think your business network security has already been looked at and protected and so you know the answer to a question like this. It’s still a good idea to ask when a reliable IT security provider checked your network. Why? Because people your company does business with, such as your customers, suppliers, business associates expect the information shared to be secured and protected at all times.


Furthermore, many small to medium businesses (SMBs) lack the adequate knowledge, IT expertise and conduct business via the Internet. Numerous threats to network security are spread easily over the Internet and without the right technology your business data and confidential information can be easily compromised.

The most frequent network security threats include:

  • Worms, viruses and Trojan horses
  • Spyware and adware
  • Data and identity theft

There have been too many incidents reported where valuable data and personal information has been stolen from large organisatons, both in the government and private sectors. No one single solution will protect your business from all the security threats. A number of security layers are needed, so if one fails, others are there.

Through a combination of hardware and software, HBT can provide your business with enhanced security so you don’t have to worry about how it works and if you’re protected constantly.
