The care of your customer’s data is a legal requirement but it’s also important to take care of your own data, which is why having the right security is incredibly important. Security is a vital part of our service here at catalyst2. We often get asked about how we properly protect your server data and we wanted to create this post to walk you through a few of the ways that we protect your data and keep you safe from malicious hackers. 

Why is Data Protection Important?

No matter what type of business you run, the data that you receive is able to identify the individuals that do business with you. Whether this is financial information or contact information, it is your responsibility to make sure that no one gets hold of this information. This is also a risk for your employees, for whom you also have individual records. 

Failing to properly care for this data can lead to it being misused by third parties. Misuses like fraud, phishing scams and identity theft can seriously harm your customers and damage your business’s reputation in the long term. Security is vital for avoiding this misuse and turning to our team at catalyst2 can help you to avoid this. 

How Can We Help you?

Having been working in the industry for more than two decades, we know the damage that poor security can do. This is why we’ve created our Data Guard service that is designed to provide onsite security twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. We want to create a service that will properly protect your data including services like Malware Detection, Multi-Factor Authentication and Multi-layer Encryption. These features help to level up our security and keep your business properly protected from the risk of malicious attacks. 

What Does this Include?


  • ISO 27001 Certification

It is not enough for us to just tell you that we care about your security. But our ISO 27001 Certification shows that we are the right choice for protecting your company’s assets. Our certification represents our ability to protect your employee details, customer information and other private information. We’re very proud of our ISO 27001 Certification.

  • Excellent Firewall System

Those looking to harvest your data for malicious purposes tend to get quite sneaky about their attacks but one of the best ways to stop many of them is with a good firewall system. A firewall system is a form of network security that has been programmed to monitor and control incoming and outgoing network traffic. Our firewalls are one of the first lines of defence against these threats, helping to stop problems before they begin. 

We provide our firewalls with a set of predetermined security rules, which we will discuss with you before we begin programming them. As a result of this care and attention, our firewall can form an excellent barrier between unknown networks and your private network, blocking out potential threats and keeping you as safe as possible. 

  • Quality Malware and Virus Detection

You might have heard a lot about malware and viruses and you’re probably wondering how you can protect yourself and your business from these malicious attacks. Malware is a type of software that is designed to damage a computer, network or server and a virus is a piece of code that copies itself and causes damage to your server. 

The outcome of these two attacks can be devastating, which is why customers are often incredibly concerned about them. But our data guard also includes malware and virus detection. Our service will be able to protect your site from potential threats and stop them from gaining access to your server and your data. 

We will take the time to ensure that we’re proactively monitoring the site and taking down any threats that we find. 

  • Blocking of Suspicious Activity

Our service doesn’t just stop at finding problems, however, we will also actively go out of our way to deal with threats when we find them. This includes our brute force blocking software that is put in place to stop wide-scale attacks. The system will lock out accounts that repeatedly use the incorrect password. 

This will help to keep yourself as safe as possible, and there’s always a chance for people to get their accounts back if it turns out that they’ve just forgotten their password. Our proactive care will make sure that there is no foothold for these sorts of attacks, keeping you as safe as possible.

  • First-Class Encryption

Encryption is a bit of a buzzword these days because it offers you yet another layer of security. With encryption, it will be difficult for any third party to read the data because it will make no sense. The data would need to be decoded before it’s used, making it much harder to find on your server, and limiting the amount they can take. 

Here at catalyst2, we offer multi-layer encryption, which means that we will encrypt our encrypted data to make it harder to decipher by potential attackers. This is one of our favoured features and it’s particularly popular with our customers. 

  • Offsite Backups

While we’ve spoken a lot about using our data guard to protect you from virtual attacks, we can also help to look after your data physically. This comes in the form of an offsite backup service that is used to secure your data from any physical issues that you might encounter with your computers. 

Whether the server breaks down or something goes wrong with your work computers, you won’t lose anything. These sorts of things can be the result of a malicious attack but usually, it’s just the result of wear and tear and problems with technology. 

We will back up all of your data at regular intervals to make sure that we’re always up to date with your data. This means that you have reliable and consistent backups whenever you need them.
