A comprehensive cyber security plan tailored for an SMB helps you minimize potential risks and protect your data. A customized security plan is affordable and gives you the peace of mind you need to focus on running your business.

Risk management

We conduct Vulnerability & Threat assessments and find the weak spots and security flaws in your network and devices, then provide remediation and a plan for the future.

Industry-recognized antivirus

Protek-IT uses BitDefender enterprise-level antivirus for threat prevention and detection, which help identify and stop brand-new attacks.

End-user training

Employees often unknowingly let criminals in their systems, so we conduct regular phishing training and dark web monitoring for all employees.

Microsoft Security solutions

We utilize Microsoft Defender for Business to secure and protect your work data, enable multi-factor authentication to your business accounts, protect you from phishing, and more.

Full support and management

We don't just set up your security software and wave goodbye. We are there in case of any questions, evolving threats, or threat exposure.

Data backup

The techy saying 'two is one, and one is none' is important in security. We protect your business and minimize risk, but always provide you with a plan B and back up all your important data.

Frequently Asked SMB CYBER SECURITY Questions

We send monthly phishing simulation emails to employees to keep them sharp about social engineering attempts. The simulations are accompanied by training videos, which walk each employee through the tell-tale signs that someone is trying to impersonate a person in power or otherwise gain unauthorized access to sensitive data. 

We also keep all employees aware of any credentials that have leaked to the Dark Web and ask them to follow password creation best-policies (complexity requirements, good password hygiene, no reusing, etc.)

The manager(s) at your work also have access to employee safety scores, so everyone is on the same page and we can focus on the most vulnerable employees.

No, you should only use one antivirus at a time. Not only will two or more antivirus programs make your device much slower, it can cause false positives and conflicts in software.

Just make sure the one you’re using is a good one — especially when it comes to business devices!
