Get Protected This New Year!

The beginning of a new year reminds us of those important habits we want to initiate. When it comes to your online data, we recommend ensuring you have the latest security software and create the habit of checking for updates periodically.


Protecting Yourself

In addition to anti-virus protection, the following items are essential to get your personal computer protected:

  • Email Protection — protects users from infected emails disguised as legitimate emails.
  • Web/Browser Protection — protects users from harmful websites.
  • Virtual Private Network — encrypts your network connection and protects all activity from outside intrusion.


Protect Your Online Presence

esd provides multiple layers of protection for websites:

  • CMS Security Extension — esd will install security plugins within the CMS itself to provide security protection at the core level. The security plugins guard the CMS from over ten different aspects:
      • User Authorization Security
      • Database Security
      • File System Security
      • Configuration file backup & restore
      • Blacklist functionality
      • Firewall functionality
      • Brute Force Attack Prevention
      • Security Scanner
      • Front-end text copy protection
  • External Malware & Security Scanner — the security and malware scanner will scan for any malware breach, then fix or remove all infectious files.
  • Website Firewall — the firewall provides another layer of security check at the domain level and guards the website before the traffic reaches the hosting server. Blacklisting, whitelisting, DDoS prevention, and spam blocking are also available as part of the firewall configuration.

Need help getting protection? We can help your company implement a premium security system to ensure your website is safe and your business stays up and running.


Be Prepared

Since no security system offers 100% protection, preparation is key in the event of a cyber attack. Make sure to have a backup scheduled frequently for a speedy recovery to any crisis.

Meet Our Intern Tristen! "I thoroughly enjoyed my time at esd. The esd team truly exceeded my expectations of what I thought it would be like as an intern. I was challenged, taught, and encouraged. I am thankful for the people who helped me start my growth as a business professional and am excited to continue learning and gaining experience in the marketing industry. With graduation in the near future, I hope to find a marketing position with a company that advocates for saving marine life, while continuing my education with a graduate degree in Integrated Marketing Communications from the University of Mississippi :)"

Meet Our Intern Madison! "As an intern at esd I was welcomed with my first real office work environment. I was able to use what I have learned in my courses at school and put them into real world projects. Networking, filming and editing for our big name clients has really helped me fill out my film reel and resume. Using new equipment and software outside the classroom has been a real perk of this internship. I have been taken in by all parts of the esd team, helping across all departments for projects, and learning things from everyone and their jobs at esd. Gaining as much knowledge and more skills to make me more well versed in my field. After college, I am looking forward to working on more video productions for film in Austin and making a name for myself as a director."
