IT Security includes both protection from viruses and spam and control and management of your data.  In close partnership with Symantec, Cisco and Microsoft, Synergy Associates Ltd has put together a complete platform that allows you to secure your network and safely enable the increasingly complex and rapidly growing number of applications running on it, while ensuring that your business critical data remains protected.

This platform uniquely offers you the ability to identify, control, and safely enable applications while at the same time inspecting all content for all threats at all times. Our approach allows you to simplify your network security infrastructure and to eliminate the need for a variety of stand-alone and bolt-on security devices. Our platform can address a broad range of network security requirements, ranging from the data center to the far edges of the network, which includes branch offices and mobile devices.

Synergy has partnered with Symantec.Cloud, a leading provider of secure, cloud based, enterprise IT technologies, to provide a range of security options.  In addition, we use our server and desktop monitoring platform to roll out critical and security updates to your machines seamlessly, keeping you up to date and protecting against security threats.

End Point Protection (Anti-virus)

A virus or malware attack can be devastating, and can destroy valuable business data.  Synergy uses Symantec Endpoint Protection.Cloud, a fast and effective way to provide your machine with world-class protection. This software is installed on all servers, desktops and laptops in your network, to ensure universal protection.

Symantec Insight and SONAR technologies detect new and rapidly mutating malware, including new and previously unknown threats.  Fast and effective scans protect against viruses, worms, Trojans and spyware, and run in the background without affecting system performance.

Email Security

Synergy provides a world-class email anti-spam and anti-virus solution, using Symantec’s powerful cloud based systems.  Because the system is cloud based, updates are continuous and automatic, leaving you free to access your emails without worry.  This system protects your emails, even if you are accessing them from outside the office environment, so you can work from anywhere. 

Web Security and Filtering

The Web is becoming the primary method of attack for viruses and spyware. Users who visit sites that have been compromised can unwittingly download malware that can steal confidential information, re-direct web searches to harmful sites, and diminish network performance.  Synergy uses the Symantec MessageLabs Web service to protect businesses from these threats, minimising the risk when users surf the web. 

This system can also create custom browsing policies and filters, allowing you to increase staff productivity as well as protecting your network. The system allows you to create filters based on URLs, website categories and file types, and to create rules based on time of day or bandwidth consumption.  This provides a simple method to maximise use of your business interent connection, protecting bandwidth, productivity and network with one simple tool.

Email Content Control

Data leakage is a significant threat, so Symantec MessageLabs Email Content Control.Cloud identifies and controls confidential, malicious or inappropriate email content sent or received by your organisation, allowing you to monitor and control emails in real time.

Configurable to your needs, Email Content helps to reduce the risk of data loss and enables you to establish and enforce an acceptable use policy so that employee email use can be more productive.

Security Patching

Microsoft periodically release updates and patches for their operating systems, many of which address security flaws or vulnerabilities that have been discovered.  It is important to keep your operating system up to date by applying these patches, for both servers and desktops.  There are other programs, such as Adobe and Java, for which periodic security updates are released.  Using our advanced monitoring platform Synergy can not only report on which updates have been applied to your environment, but also roll out updates and patches automatically, to make sure your security is always up to date across your network.


Another key aspect of security is making sure you have the best hardware, firewalls and network configuration.  

We partner with Cisco to provide their next-generation firewalls, which deliver visibility and control over application, users, and content within the firewall using a highly optimized hardware and software architecture.  Our engineers will set up and check all network settings, to ensure optimised security.

Remote Access

Using Citrix XenApp software, Synergy can provide you with fast and secure access to your data while on the move.  This solution provides a desktop environment which can be accessed via the internet, so you can open files and run applications from anywhere, all securely hosted in our data centre, or running from your own servers.  This system is perfect for dispersed offices, or users who work from a number of locations.  Please click here for more information available on our Hosted Desktop environment.
