A computer network allows you to share internet access between all the computers in the network. A common definition of network security states that it “consists of the provisions and policies adopted by a network administrator to prevent and monitor unauthorized access, misuse, modification, or denial of a computer network and network-accessible resources."

Network security involves the authorization of access to data in a network, which is controlled by the network administrator. Network security deals with authenticating information that allows users access to information and programs within their authority. Network security covers a variety of computer networks, both public and private. We can help you choose the best internet access option for your business. Our consultants will help you choose the one that is the best for your situation.

IT Security Design

Not only can Smart Computers provide the testing and audit services we can design your network from ground up and build security measures into the network.

Penetration Test

The process involves an active analysis of the system for any potential vulnerability that could result from poor or improper system configuration, known and unknown hardware or software flaws or operational weaknesses in process or technical countermeasures. This includes testing firewalls, Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS). IDS will notify you if someone is trying to gain access to your system without your permission. Taking the exact steps that a hacker would to show the weak points in your network and fix them before they are exploited.

Load-Balancing Security

Denial-of-Service Attack (DoS attack) or Distributed Denial-of-Service Attack (DDoS attack) is an attempt to make a machine or network resource unavailable to its intended users. SMART COMPUTERS provides load balancing machines so only legitimate traffic is allowed and suspected DoS traffic is sent to a second server.

VOIP Penetration Testing

Penetration tests ensure phone systems are secure and defaults were not left intact to jeopardize message security. We physically check data ports on phones to ensure attackers are not hard-wired into your system and check common Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) hopping techniques against your system to verify security needs..

Firewall/Configuration Review

SMART COMPUTERS establishes software or hardware-based network security systems to control incoming and outgoing network traffic by analyzing data packets and determining whether they should be allowed through or not, based on a rule set.

Vulnerability Management

Knowing all of your patch levels vulnerabilities of all of the machines of your network is a vital and often ignored portion of network security. This goes beyond operating system patching to dive into all vulnerabilities of the systems and building a plan to keep system exposure to a minimum.

Honey Pot Services and Network Monitoring

The service hides your computers and servers on your network in several fake decoy computers, so potential attackers will not know which computers are real and which are fake. We also provide services to notify you of any activity trying to gain access to the false computers.
