Exclamation Need ideas for security solutions for a computer consulting firm

I'd like to get an idea on the different security solutions that I could be provided with for a computer consulting firm. This would include costs of everything. Firewalls...antivirus...etc that would be appropriate in this situation.

For a business like a firm, i would suggest fairly tight security
Try to download DeepFreeze for computer configurations
And also get a variety og firewalls and all that
Will you have a server running ? Or is it just a network of computers ?

Default Re: Need ideas for security solutions for a computer consulting firm

Ok it's part of an organization that has 3 locations...one in albany with 160 users, one in NY that has 100 users, and one in yakima, Wa that has 25 users. Each location has a T1 internet connection and gains access to each city through a VPN. I must provide a security solution for the organization with cost...

Any help?

If you're dealing with multitple locations geographically, it is best to implement security on the routers. Configure IP range to accept using access lists.

Just get some router with a built in hardware firewall, then get pc cillin av for companies (if they have it), and that should be good. I'll let you know with more ideas... lol...
