Cyber Threats…Shadow IT…Spear Phishing…Data Breach…Stealth Attacks…Spoofing…Tampering…Repudiation…Eavesdropping…

Over recent times, many of these words and terms have sadly become too familiar. In 2015, the media has widely publicised instances of high profile organisations being hacked or cyber-attacked and many more people and businesses are aware of the threat to their professional and personal data security.

It does seem that sensitive and personal information can be too easily obtained.  A recent survey by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills found that 74% of UK small firms experienced a data security breach, with 90% of large organisations also being targeted*.  Small and medium sized businesses are particularly vulnerable as many feel they are not prime targets and will not take measures to protect themselves or spend the money to do so.

The real challenge, particularly for many non-technical people is how do you find the best IT solutions to meet your business model? How can you be sure you’re not being sold software that is inappropriate, inadequate or overly expensive and will not meet your requirements as your business grows and develops?

If you choose to talk directly to any software vendor, they will naturally try to sell you their top products.  Speak with independent IT Security specialists AVR International and our goal is to find the right solution that meets your needs.  We will:

  • Ensure we understand your business information structure
  • Assess what you may need for the future
  • Give you a number of options
  • Fully explain the features and benefits
  • Provide you with no-obligation quotes on request
  • Assist with tech support and account management

We know this non-traditional, consultative approach works.  AVR started in 2002 and has an impressive track record of growth, success and customer recommendations from a client base of over 400 businesses.  We also specialise in helping businesses manage their mobile devices; another area where data security can be at risk.

So what are you going to do next?  Carry on and hope you don’t get targeted?  Risk your valuable company information or customer data to attacks from external cyber terrorists or even naïve, well-meaning employees?

Or take the first step to protecting your future and contact AVR at or call us on 01189 344 300.
