NIH Consulting provides innovative IT services in South Africa
Security
The Internet can be a hazardous place with millions of attacks per minute bombarding global networks at any one time. An unprotected computer can become infected or compromised within a few seconds after it is connected to the network.A compromised computer is a hazard to everyone else, too - not just to you.

Good Security Standards follow the "90 / 10" Rule:
  • 10% of security safeguards are technical.
  • 90% of security safeguards rely on the computer user ("YOU") to adhere to good computing practices

The University of California gives a good example of security as follows:
  • The lock on the door is the 10%.
  • You remembering to lock the lock, checking to see if the door is closed, ensuring others do not prop the door open, keeping control of the keys, etc. is the 90%. You need both parts for effective security.

They further go on to answer the question, What Does This Mean for Me?
  • This means that everyone who uses a computer or mobile device needs to understand how to keep their computer, device and data secure.
  • Information Technology Security is everyone's responsibility!

It is therefore important that:
  • good computing security practices are incorporated into everyone's daily routine.
  • Anything unusual be reported where the supervisor and IT Support are notified if you become aware of a suspected security incident for urgent remedial action to be taken to mitigate against any potential security threats.

NIH Consulting has partnered with leading security providers to provide
innovative tools that are essential to protect our customers' network systems.


CloudFlare

CloudFlare protects and accelerates any website online

Once your website is a part of the CloudFlare community, its web traffic is routed through our intelligent global network. We automatically optimize the delivery of your web pages so your visitors get the fastest page load times and best performance. We also block threats and limit abusive bots and crawlers
from wasting your bandwidth and server resources. The result:
CloudFlare-powered websites see a significant improvement in performance and a decrease in spam and other attacks.

CloudFlare’s system gets faster and smarter as our community of users grows larger. We have designed the system to scale with our goal in mind: helping power and protect the entire Internet.
