How can we help you achieve Cyber Essentials using the 5 controls?


We will help you protect all your devices that connect to the internet with a firewall. Firewalls create a ‘buffer zone’ between your IT network or device and other, external networks.

Secure Configuration

Most hardware and software is pre-configured, making it quick and easy to start using the product. However, leaving the settings this way makes it easier for cyber attackers to gain access to your data. We will help you to get secure configurations.

User Access Control

To reduce the possibility of an attacker infecting your devices, we ensure all user accounts will only have access to software and settings to perform the role intended. You should only give out admin permissions to those who need them.

Malware Protection

All unprotected devices, including laptops, PC's, phones and tablets, are open to attacks using malware. Viruses and malware can infect your devices and software and can quickly spread. We will make sure you have sufficient protection.

Patch Management

We will help you keep all your phones, tablets, laptops or computers, operating systems and installed apps or software up to date. Manufacturers and developers release regular updates which not only add new features but also fix any security vulnerabilities.
