Cyber-security Phoenix, Arizona

Cyber-security is a broad term, but in short, it is the protection of internet-connected systems from cyberattacks.  These systems could include various hardware, software and applications.

In order to prevent data breaches and downtime, SymbiSystems provides security measures for its clients. Each monthly agreement includes proactive support and education. Among the tools included in each monthly support agreement are tools for complying with compliance standards. In case the worst should happen, it provides disaster recovery.   



HIPAA and PCI compliance guide the business and privacy standards of businesses that manage patient or financial records. It is not only important to follow these guidelines to protect patient and customer records, but it is also a law. HIPAA standards can result in a $10,000 fine per infringement. SymbiSystems offers backups as part of its monthly agreements for at least 7 years of data backups. Moreover, SymbiSystems offers IT consulting services to improve patient and financial data security.  SymbiSystems offers IT consulting services to work with company leadership to come up with a security and compliance plan that meets the business' needs. This may include email and interoffice communication measures, computer and server security, and more. 

Proactive Security

SymbiSystems works hard to keep the network running efficiently so that daily operations can be continued. Security breaches cause downtime on the network, which costs a company money in payroll and revenue loss.  

24-7 Monitoring

A monthly service agreement includes 24/7 monitoring. It monitors the health of all the machines on your network so they keep working properly. Also, it automatically installs updates to the operating system and security patches to keep your computer safe from the latest threats. Through the monitoring software, anti-virus protection is updated and pushed out. 

AntiVirus Protection

Each monthly service agreement comes with anti-virus protection as well. Anti-virus software helps protect a computer, server, and network by preventing many different types of threats from infecting the system. The majority of viruses just populate advertisements, whereas others, such as ransomware, can have catastrophic effects. To stop ransomware before it goes too far in your system, SymbiSystems uses a type of anti-virus that looks for ransomware patterns.  A virus-free network keeps systems running and prevents costly downtime.   

Multifactor Authentication

Multifactor authentication is highly recommended by SymbiSystems when possible. In addition to a password or pin, this extra layer of security prevents breaches by requiring account owners to verify themselves in two different ways. It can also be based on facial recognition or fingerprint identification.   

Physical Security

For proactive prevention of security breaches, SymbiSystems recommends installing security cameras and installing access codes or locks for server rooms and entrances. In order to prevent security breaches, it is imperative that only those with appropriate access be given access to certain spaces within an office. No one wants an intruder to walk away with a server!  

Additionally, protected and managed domain access is crucial. This allows SymbiSystems to manage who has access to the network, so employees can be restricted based on their position. An office can work smoothly with no unnecessary threats to its system by limiting access to the network and allowing access to the software and files it needs to work.   

Employee Education

A proactive strategy SymbiSystems offers clients is employee cybersecurity education. Employee mistakes account for 60% of security breaches. SymbiSystems offers security presentations to teach employees about password complexity, phishing emails, viruses, and physical security threats. Employees who receive frequent security education are less likely to reveal important security information or give away data accidentally.    

Data BackUps

A security and compliance risk can be mitigated by backing up data. Without backups, there are few options if there is a crisis. In addition to preventing the loss of data, backups also prevent the loss of network configurations, Active Directory computer logins, software, and operating systems. A complete network rebuild can take weeks. System backups can minimize financial losses and downtime.  

Email Services

For businesses, the use of email services such as Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace can also provide security. Admin management for new and old employees, multifactor authentication and device management are also part of these services. These services provide spam filtering as part of their services to prevent accidental password discovery or account threats. Using these tools, companies can increase security and save time. SymbiSystems manages these services for clients.  

HelpDesk Support

Security threats cannot always be avoided by companies. Hackers are very good at creating phishing emails that look legitimate and fool even the most savvy computer users. When hackers get through to a company's computer, SymbiSystems's Helpdesk is here to help. If SymbiSystems is discovered quickly, adware or minor viruses can easily be removed. It can also stop suspicious behavior on a computer.     

Disaster Recovery

The best proactive measures can sometimes fail. In addition to floods, fires, and storms, equipment can be stolen or catastrophic threats can penetrate the best of proactive measures. Despite the best efforts of SymbiSystems, disaster recovery is available for your office in case of a disaster. Using the best tools available for disaster recovery, SymbiSystems can recover data, rebuild servers and computers.
