I was very impressed with Mobile Geeks’ prompt and efficient service. When my computer crashed they conveniently came to my home and had the problem solved that day. They advised me on how to stop the problem reoccurring and offered great ongoing support. I would recommend them to anyone.

Internet Security Sydney & Firewalls Sydney
We know from experience that Internet security and firewalls are paramount to anyone with a computer. It is important that your computers and computer networks are secure against constantly evolving threats such as spyware, adware and an ever-growing array of advanced viruses, as well as increasingly savvy hackers. We are all hooked up to a network or the Internet these days, so none of us are immune from these threats. By simply surfing the Internet without computer protection, you open up the door for intruders enabling them to access your home or business computers.

A computer firewall essentially controls all network activity and ensures that you only share information and files that you choose to share. A firewall is a device or a set of devices configured to permit or deny computer applications based upon a set of rules and other criteria. It is part of a computer system or network designed to block unauthorised access while permitting authorised communications. Firewalls can be implemented in either hardware or software or a combination of both. They are often used to prevent unauthorised Internet users from accessing private computer networks connected to the Internet, especially intranets. All messages entering or leaving the intranet pass through the firewall, which examines each message and blocks those that do not meet the specified security criteria.
These days, many broadband modems and routers come with in-built computer firewalls, so it is quite likely that you many not be required to purchase any further software or hardware in order to make sure your data is safe. However, any such in-built firewalls still need to be set up by an experienced Computer Technician to effectively protect your computers. Failure to do so may cost your business downtime and hassle in the future.
