Data Security & Integrity
Encryption remains one of the most effective ways to achieve data security. Whilst it does not prevent data loss, it does protect the content, ensuring only trusted and authorised parties can view it. Our encryption services protect your data wherever it is; on premise, in the cloud, or on any device. We will protect your data without changing the way you work or compromising productivity.
Whilst encryption itself is important, key and policy management – getting the right keys to authorised users and managing the lifecycle of these keys – is a critical task. Our solutions take advantage of centralised key management regardless of the endpoint, allowing heterogeneous environments to be managed from the same console.
Data Loss Prevention
Data loss Prevention (DLP) solutions are being driven by increasing common insider threats, more rigorous government privacy laws and the frequency that we share information, and store it on devices that are constantly on the move. As the risk of data loss has increased, it is now critical that organisations put in place stringent measures to mitigate the chance of losing data.
We help our clients classify their assets, govern how and where data resides and importantly, under what conditions it can travel. Moreover, our solutions enable you to monitor how data is used and track where it goes and who accesses it, regardless of the location, device or application being used.
File & Data Sharing
One of the biggest challenges for IT is to secure data in the age of mobile and agile workforces. Employee use of personal file sharing services such as DropBox, Google Drive and Box represents security risks to the organisation. The use of such tools is not necessarily to maliciously remove data from the organisation. Many users leverage these services to enable them to work smarter. When confronted about why these applications are being used there is often a valid use case: “How can I work on a proposal on my iPad?” “How do I share large files with external suppliers to collaborate on a project?”
Metaphor IT has a suite of solutions that can provide file and collaboration functionality while ensuring the data never leaves your datacentre. This provides employees with the intuitive user experience and flexibility they demand and the advanced security features IT requires.
Anti-Virus / Malware
Most administrators know the role of anti-virus software – to safeguard a computer from malware, including viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, adware or malicious programs. It remains critical to have up-to-date anti-virus software and definitions with more than 60,000 new pieces of malware created daily.
Our AV solutions scan, detect and remove any malicious code detected, safeguarding against not only already-identified malware but new and even zero-day threats, all with a low resource overhead. We can also integrate AV into your SIEM solution, ensuring a complete view of your security.
Backup & Restore
Just as important as protecting your data, is the ability to restore it in the event of loss or corruption. Metaphor IT’s solutions cover the full range of data sources, file types, storage media and backup modes, providing automated data protection.
You will be able to view all of your data, no matter where it is, in a single console. Metaphor IT can ensure your databases, files, applications, endpoints and virtual machines are backed up efficiency, using as little storage as possible, and recovered easily and quickly.
