Anti-Malware

Watch Point Data partner with the best in anti-malware/anti-virus vendors to ensure you are protected against malware.

According to the National Small Business Technology Association survey, the average cost of a security breach is around $9,000.
WatchPoint data offer one of the most effective anti-malware products, including award winning BitDefender, alongside our own patch management service to create a formidable defence system protecting your computers and data from hackers.
Our anti-malware defences provide you with the level of protection needed with modern malware threats in an ever changing security landscape.
WatchPoint will help you remove old, ineffective anti-virus software.
Small to medium size organizations have become increasingly targeted by cybercriminals intent on inserting malware on your network to steal login credentials to not only your network resources, but anyone in your supply chain. The malware can also steal financial details and other sensitive data. Specialised malware known as Ransomware is becoming increasingly common, this malware being used to encrypt all of your data and blackmail you, demanding money to decrypt your files.

Patch Management

Patch management is a highly effective way of managing and preventing cyber security threats. The Carnegie Mellon University in partnership with the FBI recognised that 90% of security breaches could be attributed to vulnerability in software WatchPoint Data ensures you are always running the most up to date software, thereby reducing the impact of software vulnerabilities.
Hackers love small businesses. Small businesses are now the bread and butter of malicious coders and according to the National Cyber Security Alliance, 71% of them are targeting you. The same study also found that of those companies breached, 60% of them will go out of business within 6 months of the breach. It has been shown, time and again, that one of the best ways to deal with the type of modern day security threats putting companies, like yours, out of business, is patch management. The combination of anti-malware and patch management is the modern way to tackle security threats. It is the best of both worlds, and with WatchPoint you can have that with an easy install and migration path.
Windows is renowned for needing regular patches, many of them critical security updates. Patch Tuesday has become part of the common parlance of anyone who uses a Windows based computer. However, patching is very time consuming and means you have to be continuously looking for updates. Even automated updates often don’t work properly. WatchPoint reduces your support overload by taking this job away from your IT staff, allowing them to concentrate on mission critical work instead – keeping your company working at its best.
Our simple, click and patch system lets you pick where to deploy your patches. You can do this on a local (device) or global (network) basis, quickly and simply. WatchPoint gives you total control over your network patching.
Alternatively, WatchPoint will provide a fully automated patch management service, freeing you up to do what you do best – run your company.

System Downtime Prevention

System downtime costs money. In a 2014 study, Gartner calculated that downtime costs, on average, $5,600 per minute. Similarly, IDC (another IT analyst firm), found that small to medium size businesses based in North America could expect costs of up to $125,000 a year for downtime. WatchPoint Data protect and prevent against system downtime by controlling your security environment.
The overall consensus is that reducing downtime means retaining and even improving productivity and minimizing losses due to security threats. Because the issue comes down to time and planning, smaller organizations simply do not have the manpower to deal with these issues and as a result, more and more frequently they are being affected by them. WatchPoint Data recognizes this and understands that the average small to medium sized organization does not have the deep pockets or employee bandwidth to be able to purchase and deploy expensive, complicated security monitoring and patch management software. We have developed a system that provides all of the requirements of security threat monitoring and patch management at a price that smaller companies can afford.
WatchPoint sits on your network, monitoring incoming security threats and checking endpoints and software for security vulnerabilities and patch requirements. It works for you and with you to massively reduce any threats to your business, keeping you up and running and making sure that any downtime is minimized. We can’t prevent lightning bolts, but we can stop those software vulnerabilities from wreaking havoc with your network and causing you loss of time and money.
