Why it’s time to add more layers to your standard IT security and to protect WITHIN

By Witold Stanislawski, Technology Solutions Advisor.











No business with Internet access is immune from the threat of compromised passwords, unauthorized electronic resource access, data breaches and other activities performed INSIDE the network.

Statistically, more than 70% of cybercrime incidents target the Small Business space. 60 – 65% of those business will close their doors within 6 months from such breaches. Most attackers tend to “watch” the network activities and e-mail communications for a few weeks before they strike. During that time their activities are usually undetected.


You mostly likely already have some layers of security like firewall, anti-virus, web browsing protection and anti-spam filters. Those are ‘must have’ 1st layers of defense against modern cyber-attacks.


Firewalls, anti-virus, and anti-malware software are an equivalent of a perimeter protection at an organized event, where attendees must go through metal detectors and randomly show their IDs. The layers above do just that for computer networks.


However, until now, there hasn’t been a practical and inexpensive way to know if any of the security policies were being breached from INSIDE of the network. Economically, it was out of reach for the Small Businesses. NIE MSSP Total Proactive Network Protection technology provides the missing layer of internal network security. Don’t hesitate to contact us to get the conversation about network security started.

Could your current technician actually be jeopardizing your network?
These are some common question most SMB owners ask themselves. Sign up below and get your questions answered.

Replace Your Old Nortel Phone System – UPDATE and Positive News

By Ray Miner, Technology Solutions Adviser

Update:  As a follow-up to our original post on a creative way to fund the replacement of your old phone system by upgrading your telephone service and internet access with less expensive and more capable service.  I am happy to report that we found $746 PER MONTH in savings at the first company that took us up on our offer of a free analysis.  More than enough to fund a new phone system…

Although it may sound too good to be true, companies with older Nortel phone systems can get a state of the art VoIP (Voice over IP) solution and pay for all or most of it using the savings realized from updating their telephone and internet access service.  During the course of our analysis, we also find that companies are paying significant sums of money for services they either no longer need or no longer use.

If you still have an old Nortel system, you haven’t been able to upgrade your phone service to a relatively new technology called SIP (Session Initiation Protocol).

Your old Nortel system couldn’t use SIP technology.

Instead of using separate, dedicated lines like you used to get from “The Phone Company”, SIP comes in over your existing internet access circuit. And it costs a fraction of what you are currently paying for your current phone service.

Even “new” phone service from companies like Comcast, uses old technology and costs significantly more.


Lease a new premise-based system or pay for a cloud hosted solution, on a monthly basis, and fund it out of the savings on your new SIP phone service.  Contact us for a complimentary analysis of your current phone service.
