Internet Content Filtering

Internet content filtering lets you control what websites your children can – and can’t – access

Internet Content FilteringAs parents worried about the dangers of the internet, it’s never been more important to control what websites children can – and can’t – access.

So if you are concerned about what your children could be getting up to online, internet content filtering offers total peace of mind.

Our content filtering solutions allow you to control internet access at two levels:

At computer level – ideal if you only have one computer on which you wish to control internet access.

  • A small software application is installed on the computer that will restrict access to certain types of website

At router level – if you wish to control more than one computer.

  • A software application is installed on your router to control the type of internet sites that can be accessed from your home network
  • Please note: all devices connected to your home network will be subject to the same restrictions on internet access

Block by category and / or URL

You can purchase our internet content filtering package as a stand-alone. Alternatively, if you have purchased AVG Cloud Care from BH Computing, you can add internet content filtering as part of the package for a nominal fee.

Whichever of our two solutions you decide on, you get full control over the category of website that can be accessed as well as being able to block individual websites by adding the URL to the banned list.

If you choose to block sites by category you can also add individual sites to the allowed list.

The key benefits of our internet content filtering service to you are:

  • Control what your children can – and can’t – access at either computer or router level
  • Block individual sites or by category and type
  • Protect your children or vulnerable people from the dangers on the internet – for total peace of mind

If you’re worried what your children are accessing on the internet, call us now on 0800 999 8044 to find out more about internet content filtering. Alternatively you can use the form on our contact us page or email us at bernard@bhcomputing.co.uk

avg-cloud-careHow often do you back up the files on your computer or laptop? Every other week… once a month… never?

Even if you back up to a memory stick, how can you be sure that it won’t get corrupted, lost or damaged?

To make backing up faster, only data that’s been changed since the previous backup gets transferred to the cloud. You will also receive daily reports on the status of your data and backups, so you can be doubly confident that your important files are there, on the cloud, should you ever need to retrieve them.

And once the cloud software is installed on your computer and you’ve specified what files to backup and how often, it all runs automatically. So you never run the risk of forgetting to back up your data again.

Security comes as standard

Our cloud platform is completely secure. We can help you choose the most appropriate level of security from secure 128-bit to ultra-secure military-grade Blowfish 448-bit encryption.

internet security You may already have antivirus or internet security software installed on your computer.

But with viruses, malware and ransomeware getting more sophisticated by the day, it may be time to upgrade your computer security to a new level.

Not all viruses are obvious

It’s bad enough to find that your computer has been infected by a virus or ransomware (which locks your computer and demands money to unlock it).

But it can be even worse when your computer gets infected with one of the potentially even more dangerous viruses or trojans that can lurk, undetected, silently sending back information about what you’re typing into your computer, like bank account or credit card details.

Why we recommend cloud-based internet security

If you use your computer for online shopping or internet banking, it’s never been more important to ensure that your security precautions are bullet-proof.

This is why, at Preston-based BH Computing, we now recommend cloud-based internet security which adds an extra layer of security to everything you access online.

Business Emails and File Sharing

Access your emails and share documents from any device and from any location

microsoft exchange 2010With more and more staff working remotely or on multiple sites, businesses require total flexibility when accessing emails and distributing company documents.

BH Computing offers two products that enable staff to share and collaborate on documents, safely and efficiently, wherever they are.

Hosted Exchange (based on Microsoft Exchange Server 2010)

Hosted Exchange makes you more efficient by allowing your staff to collaborate easily on projects by sharing calendars, contacts and tasks.

You can also access emails from anywhere and on any device using Outlook on your desktop, a web browser or a mobile device. In fact Hosted Exchange works with most mobile operating systems including iPhone and iPad, Android, Windows and BlackBerry.

Security comes as standard. Every mailbox comes protected with advanced anti-spam and anti-virus email security so that spam and viruses are deleted before they reach your inbox.

Hosted SharePoint (based on Microsoft SharePoint 2010)

microsorf sharepointHosted SharePoint is a cloud-based technology designed to make it easier for staff to work together by sharing information, managing projects and collaborating on documents online.

Instead of documents being distributed manually throughout your business they are stored centrally in the cloud. This way any designated user can access key documents wherever they are and on a range of devices from desktops to most mobile devices, including iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone and Android.

And, because Hosted SharePoint tracks any changes and rolls-up updates into a single document, there’s no risk of producing multiple versions or overwriting important data.

No need to sacrifice security

Just because Hosted Exchange and Hosted SharePoint permits staff to access and collaborate on documents in the cloud remotely, it doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice security.

You have full control over access to your documents and can set permissions to allow site-wide or individual file control over who has access. In addition every account is protected by anti-virus technology to ensure the files are moved free from viruses and other harmful content, and secure SSL certificates with industry-standard 128-bit encryption.

The key benefits to your business are:

Hosted Exchange

  • Access your emails anywhere
  • Use a range of devices including your desktop, any web browser or mobile device
  • Allows ease of collaboration
  • Fully secure with anti-spam and anti-virus security
  • Individual user login area

Hosted SharePoint

  • All documents stored centrally in the cloud
  • Access your documents anywhere
