IT & Network Security
With ever-increasing IT security threats and escalating compliance requirements, businesses today must do all they can to protect themselves and their networks.
Akita has over two decades of experience in providing data, IT and network security services and consultancy. Always on top of the latest developments, our team of specialists will keep your business protected from the ever-evolving threat landscape.
Network security is a crucial part of your overall IT security strategy and ensures that your business continues to operate effectively. As of May 2018, it is also a core requirement of GDPR.
Akita designs security and control layers that protect every point of a network. We offer a range of solutions utilising industry-leading hardware and software from providers such as Cisco, Sophos and DrayTek.
We can tailor our offering to your requirements, budgets and the profile of your company. Should your company work within a high-risk industry (financial service, oil and gas, telecoms, defence, etc.) we can ensure that we give you the right security measures complete with regular testing.

Akita offers anti-virus software that can filter out threats, malware, viruses and spam before they ever reach your network.
By scanning emails before they get to your server, we’re able to implement robust security policies, keeping your organisation secure and compliant with regulations such as GDPR.
We’ll use the right solutions for your needs: Avast for day-to-day business protection, or the more advanced Sophos Intercept X to help prevent ransom and encryption attacks. We also offer granular control of your data integrity to ensure that you always know where it is and who is accessing it.
In addition to server and PC protection, we also offer a Mobile Device Management suite to protect your mobile devices and the all the data they contain. This provides you with all the protection and security you require for an endpoint which is commonly lost or stolen.
Two Factor Authentication (2FA)
Akita offer a solution to provide that additional layer of security when accessing your systems remotely. It’s both seamless and reliable. It stops brute force attacks in their tracks and makes your remote connections much more secure.
Email Spam Filtering
As much as 70% of the emails a business receives are spam. Email is the primary way malware and viruses are introduced to IT systems. This is not just through attachments (typically caught by anti-virus software) but through malicious links within emails as well.
Spam is also time consuming. If the average member of staff spends 30 minutes a day going through their emails, getting an anti-spam solution that eliminated 50% of emails would save each member of staff over an hour and fifteen minutes a week.
Akita’s email filtering solution can eliminate threats and help improve the relevancy of your emails. Filtering can be set at various levels of security and can include trigger words to block common spam terms.
Staff also get a summary email at the end of each day to show emails that have been blocked, so if something genuine has been caught they can see it, release it and whitelist that sender. Users are also able to access their quarantine areas at any time simply by logging in.
