SolutionWorx continues to employ a three-tiered approach to security for all Freedom IT Pro and Plus managed services clients.

  • All inbound email messages are screened and blocked for spam, phishing attempts, and viruses before messages are delivered to your network and mail server.
  • All Internet traffic is screened at your gateway to ensure that content is allowed by your corporate policies and is free from malicious content.
  • Desktop anti-virus is installed and automatically updated with the latest virus signatures on all managed workstations and laptops.

Even through the layers, there is the potential for threats to evolve faster than the anti-virus software companies are able to deliver new updates for their software.
