Data Security

Man using laptop beside servers in data centerWe understand the importance of our client’s business data. It is also very clear that every network is vulnerable to malicious intruders, destructive viruses, and from identity and corporate thieves, both from the outside (the internet) and from inside (your network). Conlin Consulting utilizes a multi-layered blend of hardware and software to insure that our client networks are protected from unauthorized intrusion and virus corruption.


Security is a critical consideration for anyone connecting to the Internet. Equally as important for businesses and individuals alike, whether you have a broadband cable or DSL, a dedicated circuit, or even a dial-up connection they all need some type of firewall and intrusion prevention system.

In addition, we strongly recommend regular network maintenance and automated implementation of security patches and updates to ensure that your network maintains the highest level of security protection possible. Ongoing monitoring of any network is important as malicious intruders are constantly developing new ways to breach current security technology. Software and hardware must quickly adapt to the ever-changing threats that have become a daily part of our networking existence.
