Our services cover:
All services are available 24/7
Any detected or reported problem is issued as a ticket and allocated to a fully qualified and appropriate IT support technician. All tickets are monitored, reviewed and resolved in accordance with agreed service levels. This provides a full audit record of troubleshooting issues both raised and solved.
Fast and secure access to managed IT systems allows us to respond to IT issues on demand.
Customers are issued their own personal portal access where they can view and manage their tickets and monitor SLA performance. This transparency ensures that customers have information available to them at every step from the start, duration and closure of the process.
Total protection requires constant surveillance, not sporadic security checks.
Harlequin CDIS will continually monitor an organisation’s entire IT infrastructure to ensure that the systems are protected from cybercriminals working to spread viruses, steal confidential information or damage your reputation.
With the sophistication of modern threats, it is no longer adequate to run patches and scans of networks on a weekly basis. A continual monitoring service must be deployed in order for any unexpected occurrences to be discovered instantaneously. Harlequin CDIS are alerted as soon as an issue occurs and immediately work to solve it, where possible. This service provides an audit of your security installation, ensuring that your network is continually and completely secure.
Having an extensive network of distributors and direct manufacturer relationships, Harlequin CDIS can supply the solution, deployment and support required to fulfil all of our client’s needs.
Should integration be desired within other applications, such as Sage, this can also be achieved simply and effectively by our Development Team.

Our Fraud Protection Services include:
Every day I have a quick read of the Infosecurity magazine and various other publications. From headlines, to whole articles to white papers. AND every day without fail there is a new emerging threat. Are you prepared in some way, all ways or NO way????
You shop online, it's now par for the course. There are very few people out there that do not take advantage in some way of the "benefits" of online shopping. We enter our card details, home address and sometimes our place of work. It makes sense to have your lovely new shoes delivered to work as you won't be at home take them in. So lets say it's not your computer or place of work that is a target of the online fraudster but the company you have just shopped with, you are exposed they know where you work that you won't be at home and your card details!!!
My problem but not my problem is that what we are thinking... Who has to take responsibility for this occurrence? Large companies do the right thing and apologise advise you to change your password and so on and we accept this, moan a bit accept an early upgrade or somesuch, and then forget all about it.
So a few months down the line your card details have been cloned or you get burgled do we link this back?
We all need to start taking responsibility for our own devices and protecting them, individuals, S.M.E's and large corporate companies. We are all responsible. @harlequincdis can help you. Contact us for a chat in exchange for a decent coffe and we are here to help guide you through.
So, you are a small business, with perhaps 1-15 P.C users. How does cyber-hygiene in the workplace apply to you? Is it something you have ever considered, or perhaps you feel it does not apply to you.
Think again. 2015 was referred to as the year of the data breach. And sadly statistics are on the increase. Figures from the N.C.A (National Crime Agency) state that Cybercrime is responsible for 53% of all U.K reported crime....53% with figures likely to increase! Now that is scary stuff.
A lot of S.M.E'S see themselves as too small to be affected. Allow me to ask you this question. Your house is Insured right? Would you conversationally say my house is too small to need Insurance?
Naturally, without question most of us are sensible and have Insurance 'just in case'. So why is your business any different. Your business needs protecting.
Theives, and they are thieves will target anyone that is vulnerable. If your business does not have the appropriate measures in place you are a target.
Now lets move on from this and say you have been targeted. You have now suffered a data breach. What do you do? How do you go about recovering your data? What are the costs to your business, for the recovery and mopping up that needs to be done following on from the data breach? You now have to contact all of your clients, and all of your staff to inform them of this breach and advise them how to proceed. Your reputation is now damaged, can your business sustain the financial losses .
Another statistic for you.... 80% of S.M.E'S go out of business within six months of suffering a data breach. So let me ask you again DO YOU HAVE CYBERCRIME prevention within your workplace? For all I.T concerns we are available to advise you and guide you through your journey. We offer a bespoke service and are happy to provide a free no obligation site survey in exchange for a decent cup of coffee.
