- About Us
IT security is not only about attacks online. You could simply lose a phone or have a hard drive die. There could be a breakin at your business premises.
Here's some food for thought:
"Small businesses often don't have dedicated IT teams or managers, so cyber security is out of sight - out of mind. This false sense of security puts small business at a high risk of exploitation..."
Even though our clients are mostly at the smaller end of the business spectrum, they have suffered ransomware attack, hacked computers, data loss and failed hard drives. A very few (with sites not built by SuttonNet) have had their websites hacked.
There are simple sensible steps that you can take, without breaking the bank.
The Internet of Things refers to the ever-growing network of physical objects that feature an IP address for internet connectivity, and the communication that occurs between these objects and other Internet-enabled devices and systems.
You've made a good start, hosting your website with SuttonNet. Our server is designed for and dedicated to SuttonNet use. There are no anonymous hackers sharing your website's host server and seeking to infiltrate other sites there. We know our clients, and we fully control and strictly limit access to the server interface.
Our web server infrastructure is managed by professionals with a long history and high reputation in business web, data and email hosting.
Think about what information is in your business emails, where this is stored (including emails forwarded from your business's own-domain email address to your other mail accounts) and who might be able to access it, in your workplace or beyond.
For @yourdomain email accounts hosted with SuttonNet, mail is stored temporarily on our dedicated server; then deleted from there, and retained only on your own business hardware (PC, phone etc). It's up to you to control storage and access to devices that contain your mail.
The big name mail hosting providers generally store clients' emails on their own servers:
