What We Do

Cyber Security

Managed Firewall

Our Next-Gen Solution


Arc System’s fully managed firewall solution provides a complete Next-Gen firewall service for a simple monthly fee. In partnership with Sophos, our service includes the latest technologies to protect your business from cyber threats including anti-virus scanning, intrusion prevention, synchronised security and more. The service is fully managed by our teams of certified engineers to ensure your systems are updated and protected around the clock. With the increased requirement for home working the service also includes unlimited VPN access for home workers whilst protecting your business systems from external threats.

Why have a Firewall?

A network firewall is a normally a hardware device that filters the information coming through the internet connection into your network. If an incoming packet of information is flagged by the filters, it is not allowed through – similar to passport control and customs & excise.

The benefits include:

  • Fully Managed
  • Simple Monthly Fee
  • Enterprise Protection
  • Synchronised Security
  • Real-time Reporting


If a network runs without a firewall, there is a far greater risk of a data breach occurring.

The Solution

Our Arc Secure XG Managed Firewall Service brings distinctive, threat-focused, next-generation security services to our clients. Our solution provides comprehensive protection from known and advanced threats, including protection against targeted and persistent malware attacks along with URL filtering.

The Central Firewall Platform enables us to manage the network security and operational functions for your business. We are able to block access to time-wasting sites and restrict specific applications that may be harmful to your network.

Our consultants will evaluate your requirements and advise on the most suitable solution. Enrolling in our Managed Firewall Service will ensure your protection is always up to date.

Email Security

Security without Compromise


Analyse and block threats before they reach your users. In partnership with Mimecast our Managed Email Security solutions provide the protection to combat the latest cyber threats. All services include basic anti-virus, spam prevention but with the added feature of “Targeted Threat Protection” which combats ransomware, impersonation and attachments attacks with advanced methods to block the threat at source. With other services such as email continuity and email archiving the Managed Email Security can provide a comprehensive suite to protect your business.

What’s Included

Safeguard your e-mails against hackers by using two-factor authentication. This means, you will be required to present two forms of identification to enter your e-mails, for example face ID and a manual password. For further security, follow our e-mail best practice tips.

Lastly, you should always approach attachments in e-mails with caution. You should check that the attachment has come from a reliable source and run it through anti-viral software to ensure it does not contain any malware.

Mobile Devices

Mobile Device Management / Encryption


Our mobile device management allows businesses to manage their business mobile and tablet devices to ensure they are controlled and managed centrally. This allows businesses to protect and manage their data on devices such as emails and protect these devices from accidental loss or theft by means of remote wipe or encryption. As businesses are moving more services towards the cloud, by using a central MDM solution via Microsoft Intune or Sophos Mobile Control we can create policies to ensure the security of these devices are standardized across the board and deployment of apps is simple and fast.

Security Review

Our Security Review service provides businesses with a deep dive into the security of IT systems / Infrastructure. The review starts from the ground up checking over all the basic security and policies in place for example, password policies, patch management and run-throughs of the latest best practices and guidance to protect your systems. If you simply want to ensure your network is protected our Standard Review will run through all the base checks along with monthly external vulnerability scanning. For those that have a requirement to meet the Cyber Essentials standard certificate, our Advanced and Advanced Plus services guarantee a pass to obtain the Cyber Essential certificate.

Our team of expert security analysts will maintain and scan your business externally on a monthly basis to ensure any newer threats or vulnerabilities are patched quickly to prevent cyber attacks.

Q: Why do I need Email Security?

Email. It’s the number-one business application used by organisations. It’s also the number-one method used to carry out cyber-attacks. From malware delivery, phishing and impersonations, there is an increased threat in existence to your organisation.

Millions of businesses use Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, or a hybrid approach for email management. However, traditional approaches to secure email gateways are no longer enough. Email security isn’t single-layered and focused on anti-virus and anti-spam, your organisation is vulnerable to targeted email-borne attacks.

Attack methods are quickly evolving and growing more sophisticated, targeted and dangerous. Right now, the industry is faced with email-borne threats such as phishing attacks that deliver malicious attachments and URLs; impersonation fraud fuelled by social engineering and aimed at tricking employees; and ransomware attacks that can encrypt your data and take entire systems offline.

Be aware that Cloud Solutions, such as Office 365, still need this level of security, which is often overlooked.

Q: Does Windows come with virus protection protection programme?

Yes, Microsoft Windows 10 comes with Windows Defender however this is not deemed a comprehensive solution to protect against the latest threats such as ransomware.

Q: Why should I consider Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials Plus.

By obtaining either Cyber Essentials standards you are ensuring that your business IT security meets an agreed industry standard. Much like a car would need to pass an MOT your systems would need to adhere to these standards to tell other business you are safe to work with. With cyber threats today hackers are looking to exploit business through the transit of a supplier or customer that may have weak systems. This standard ensures that business have confidence in their suppliers and or customers that they have considered and implemented the relevant measure to protect themselves against cyber threats.

Q: What is a Next-Gen Firewall?

A Next-Gen Firewall is a device that as well as providing all the standard features of a firewall to block unwanted traffic also includes additional levels of security. The firewall is able to inspect data at the application layer and filter unwanted or risky applications, along with this the devices talk to a central update server to continually learn and protect from the latest threats on the internet.
