Home Network Security
If you aren’t a network security expert, then call up Bristeeri Technologies to find out how we can help keep your home network safe from all sorts of potential threats.
Your home network is vulnerable to hacking, viruses, and other malicious attacks.
That doesn’t mean that you have to feel stress or worry about it 24/7. If you want to protect your computers, your data, and your home network, then you want to have a solution in place to ensure your home network security.
Firewalls and Managed Antivirus
Do you know what a firewall is, or what it does?
If not, then you need to give us a call.
Firewalls control what data comes in and goes out from your home network. Think of your modem as a gateway to the outside, and your WiFi router (if they are different) as the center of your own private network in your home. When you access websites, bank online, or stream video, then all that data goes out and comes in through those points.
Now, if malicious software gets access to a computer in your home network, it can monitor everything coming in and out. If can keep tabs on the sites you visit, steal data, or lock your computers for ransom.
But with a firewall, you can set up protections for your network so that you can block data from any site or user that you want. The firewall can allow the sites you want to use, and warn you if other sites try to get into your system.
Setting up a firewall properly is a challenge, however, so it’s best to have the professionals install and implement your firewall so that it protects your home network properly.

Security on Your Internet of Things Network
Security is even a bigger issue if you have multiple devices connected to the internet. One modern way where hackers and bad software sneak in is through internet-enabled objects. These objects, called the “Internet of Things” (IoT) are items that connect to the Internet and send data back and forth to help you do common tasks better. Think Alexa, or the new whole-home control and security systems.
Since these are connected to the Internet, they are at risk of hacking. They can provide malicious users the opportunity to get into your network and access other computers. So you want to have security in place for these items as well as your typical computers.

No matter what your home security situation is, we are available to help you with troubleshooting and security implementation. Give us a call if you suspect that someone has gotten access to your home network, or if you just want to take preemptive steps to make sure that it doesn’t happen.

What We Do
Laptop Repair / Desktop Repair
Bristeeri started out as a repair shop and expanded from there. But we haven’t strayed from our roots. We offer premier repair services in the Columbia area, including repair to malfunctioning or damaged hard drives, motherboards, screens, monitors, and more.
Virus and Spyware Removal
Viruses and malware can be a problem, and they can strike when you least expect it. When a virus strikes, it can damage crucial files in your system, delete your private information, or start to monitor and steal your network communications for sensitive information. Partner with Bristeeri to ensure your malware tools are always up to date and ready to prevent a breach.
Data Recovery and Backup Plan
We use Cloud Backup Solutions. Why? Because a cloud storage backup allows you to put your data in a place away from your home, in cases of disaster (consider the 2015 South Carolina Flood). If something bad happens in your home, your data is safe off-site.
Also, data stored in cloud servers typically lives on a dedicated computer with multiple drives and redundancies in place so that, in case of an issue with the hardware, your data remains safe.
