Security is paramount. We can’t stress this enough. It’s not a matter of if your business will be hit by a cyberattack. It’s a matter of when.

The only real variables are how serious it will be and how long it will take your business to recover. The image of the cybercriminal as a lone hacker, sitting in a darkened room, surrounded by screens slowly filling with glowing green characters is hopelessly outdated. Malware can be bought off-the-peg by anybody who has the inclination, and attacks are now often carried out by highly organised gangs from vast server farms armed with unimaginable computational power. These criminal enterprises have their own markets and economy, and it has been forecast that the cost of damage related to cybercrime may hit £5 trillion annually by 2021 - with no sign of ever stopping. Small businesses make up nearly half of all victims and, time and again, we’ve seen businesses brought to their knees by cyberattacks which could have largely been avoided or mitigated by the following:

    • Application of solid security protocols
    • Staff education and cyber-awareness training
    • Installation of the very latest cybersecurity software
    • A robust backup/update regime
    • Protective hardware (firewalls etc.)

At Orvis, we take your security seriously. Our ongoing use of Linux as the base for our server systems obviates most of the vulnerabilities of Windows-based servers and, with this in mind, we have installed Linux-based desktop machines wherever possible to reduce risks further – this is especially ideal if your business relies on largely web-based functionality, and it doesn’t involve the operational changes you might imagine.

We offer further enhanced security options in the form of the Orvis Business Backup package - a modular product comprising the Orvis Black Box and Orvis Remote Backup
