Computer Security

In todays world there are many devices such as computers, smartphones and tablets, that are all vunrabilites to virus produced by black hat hackers, for either feel interest or financial gain. Do not underestimate your home or business network security! Generally a computer, smartphone or tablet can be infected with malicious software before it even leaves the shop you purchased it from. Virus detection software is only useful for reported viruses, and therefore any new virus (aka zero-day virus) can quiet easily go undetected by your virus detection software. We are able to secure various operating systems such as Windows, Apple, iOS, Android, BSD, Linux and Unix. We have been doing computer security since the 1990's.

What is a firewall?

Well wikipedia says:

"A firewall is an integrated collection of security measures designed to prevent unauthorized electronic access to a networked computer system. It is also a device or set of devices configured to permit, deny, encrypt, decrypt, or proxy all computer traffic between different security domains based upon a set of rules and other criteria."

When using the internet a firewall is a must!

Computer Virus Removal

We hear about computer viruses all the time. Most people think of a computer virus as a computer with poor health (e.g. running slow). But that is just one symptom of what is really going on.

Computer viruses are malicious software, which can be used by black hat hackers to install:

  • Spyware - allows monitoring of your behaviour and keystrokes.
  • Worms - allows the virus to spread to other electronic devices (e.g. computers, smart phones, tablets, etc).
  • Trojan Horses - allows the virus to sit dormant, until a hacker needs to use your computer for various malicious needs. Please note: the hacker could be either human or an automated software program (aka bots).

It should be also noted that computer virus are not just limited to your personal computer, they can infect your smart phone, tablet and just about any electrical device you can think of.

While virus detection software is useful, it doesn't detect every virus. If a new virus is released onto the internet today (aka zero-day virus), then your virus detection software will not detect it!

If you feel your electrical device has a virus (maybe its running very slow?) then contact us today to allow us to diagnose the device, and remove all viruses found. We would also provide a howto for future use of your electrical device, to ensure you limit (or remove) the chance of being infected again.

Computer Spyware Removal

Do you realise that most of the computers, smart phones and tablets you purchased, where most likly infected with spyware without the approval of the consumer and the vendor?

Spyware is used by black hat hackers (and in some cases corporate business) to monitor your behaviour on your computer, smart phone or tablet. This monitoring can be used to similar track what you like to do, which can be used to target products to you via web searchs, email or postage mail. Or even worse be used to log all your passwords and personally, such as your back account details, which could be used to debt your bank account, or similar to steal your identity for various financial gains in Australia or internationally.

We are very familar with this technology and therefore have many skills and tools available to find such spyware and remove it. Contact us today to get your spyware removed.

Wireless Security

Worried about your Wireless security? Did you realise that approximately 30% of homes and businesses believe they have secured their wireless routers, however they are actually very unsecure wireless, and can be hacked into in minutes.

Wireless intrusion occurs when a hacker is just outside your building or home, and gain access to your network via your wireless rounter. This allows the wireless hacker to:

  • Use your Internet bandwidth for their needs (e.g. downloading large files).
  • Monitor your wireless activity (e.g. what pages you are looking at on your wireless laptop, e.g. Bank Website, Facebook).
  • Release a worm virus that could spread in your network and potentially exploit your Internet router, allowing external access.

Internet Security

We have all heard the stories about black hat hackers, breaking into big corporations and/or home networks. So its understandable most users are worried about the Internet and their online details such as bank accounts.

Securing your Internet generally involves protecting your personal and/or business network from:

  • External hackers/viruses getting into your personal and/or network.
  • Internal viruses that could then open up your network for external hackers to get in, via exploiting your Internet rounter. An internal virus could come from a visitor laptop that is infected with a worm virus
  • Wireless intrusion that would allow hackers (located just outside your building or home) to gain access to your network, which allows the wireless hacker to:
    • Use your Internet bandwidth for their needs (e.g. downloading large files).
    • Monitor your wireless activity (e.g. what pages you are looking at on your wireless laptop, e.g. Bank Website, Facebook).
    • Release a worm virus that could spread in your network and potentially exploit your Internet router, allowing external access.
  • Educating users what tools they should be using and how to use them correctly, to avoid them downloading hidden virus. A hidden virus can come from visting a websites, download files, and reading email.

If you want to ensure you are secure from Internet "bad guys", please contact us today. We can provide consultation, interest security reviews/audits, which can be deployed to reduce (and ideally remove) the threat of Internet.

Early in 2015 COLETEK was contracted by St Paul's Lutheran Primary School to install security cameras, within a tight budget, onto the campus. I found working with Luke from COLETEK to be very helpful and professional in helping the school get the most value from our budget, showing us all possible options so that we could work out the best fit for our campus.

After having difficulty getting contractors to quote on our job of setting up surveillance cameras over multiple factories on the same site we contacted COLETEK. They very helpful explaining how they would design and setup the system wirelessly and the pricing was also within our budget. The COLETEK team were very accommodating while installing the system ensuring minimal effect on our production team. We were so happy with the installation and system on our first site we also decided to upgrade the surveillance cameras on one of our other sites.

I was concerned with the security of my apartment when it was vacant. I contacted COLETEK and discussed the possibility of having security cameras installed with an email alert system incorporated that would advise me by email if someone entered the apartment, after getting the Internet activated, COLETEK suggested the equipment I should require and had it installed. I am more than happy with the result that was achieved, COLETEK has very good knowledge and understanding of all aspects of the requirements from the equipment I needed and also the IT side of things. I have no reservations in recommending COLETEK for this type of installation.

thumb Doug Hurley

We had nine cameras and a storage system installed 4 years ago. The installation was fantastic with WiFi transmission from some areas the picture quality was unbelievable. The cameras are in a very harsh environment but never cause any issues. I would thoroughly recommend COLETEK Surveillance for your CCTV requirements.

Peter Finch
Mi-Feed Pty Ltd, Yandina

COLETEK installed at our home a surveillance system with 6 cameras and an intercom system with 2 door stations and 3 indoor monitors. The two systems were linked enabling the cameras at the door stations to function as additional security cameras and also allow remote access. The result was great with the added advantage of improving our wifi system. If you want a cost effective system done by professionals who know what they’re doing, are reliable and will be respectful of your home, you can not go wrong with COLETEK. Dealing with Luke was a very positive and pleasant experience.

COLETEK is a "can-do" business. Luke and his man was prompt, efficient and skilled at fitting the security system, and made easy work of setting up the software. He assisted me with all queries after the installation, and I was very happy with his work. His quality equipment has work flawlessly. His attitude was a welcome contrast to the various installers that I had had discussions with who only saw problems with our installation. Thanks to Luke there were none.
