Spam Email

You don't have to have visited "dubious" sites in order to get spam or junk email. But if you've ever supplied your email address to a newsgroup, a mailing list or a directory, you may well become a target for spammers. If your email address appears on your own web site, you will almost certainly become a target.

This is because spammers use automated systems to trawl round the Internet, harvesting all the email addresses they can find. They then add these email addresses to their mailing lists. They don't care if some of the email addresses are invalid - their spam will get through to plenty of people. The mailing lists get sold and re-sold - and you get more and more spam. If you try to "unsubscribe" your request will usually be at best ignored. At worst, you have told the spammers that your address is valid, and you'll get even more spam.

Stopping spam before it arrives at your PC

IT-F1 can help you find a solution which stops junk emails before they arrive at your computer. This software scans the contents of emails and can stop all types of email borne threats: viruses, worms and malicious macros and spam email, before the emails arrive at your computer. Updates happen automatically so that the latest spammers' tricks can't get through your defences.

Content Filtering

Protection from inappropriate content - the Internet is full of useful resources which can help make your business more productive. The downside is that there are a great many sites which contain offensive or non-work-related material which can clog your bandwidth, reduce worker productivity or leave the organisation open to prosecution.

IT-F1 can help you select a method of "policing" your company's Internet usage that suits your usage policy.

Internet Connectivity

IT-F1 Ltd can offer you robust, reliable, always on high speed internet access through our partnership agreements with PIPEX, PLUS NET & DEMON INTERNET.

Broadband Services

ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) works over a normal BT telephone line and offers download speeds from ten to potentially forty times the speed of a standard 56k dial-up modem. With ADSL, you can be online 24x7 and still use the telephone line to make and receive calls and faxes. Now ADSL2+ is allowing many more homes and offices to get broadband as it can travel further and sustain a higher bandwidth.

For businesses in many towns and cities requiring more bandwidth to their upload or perhaps with home workers being connected into their system most of the time, SDSL (Symmetric Digital Subscriber Line) provides a balanced service offering the same speed for both uploads as well as downloads. SDSL is available in many different speeds and usage limits. (SDSL is subject to your local exchange being enabled)

Leased Line
Probably the ultimate internet connection. Speeds can be 1mb/s to a massive 40mb/s or more with a 99.9% uptime and equal upload and download speeds, no contention ratio (no sharing with anyone else) But at a price! While our ISP partners can provide very competitive rates for the install and rent of such lines they are only for a very few Businesses.
