Hardware resetting and Configuration can be a difficult task if you aren’t familiar with the technical side of things, ensuring that your data is safe and can’t be accessed is essential in an organisation. While cyber-attacks are always discussed, organisations often overlook the physical aspect. Has the server room been locked, are computers disposed of with their hard drives intact, are users copying data to use offsite? These are just some of the questions that should be asked in any organisation - big or small. We offer a number of services including ensuring equipment is wiped or destroyed on an audited basis, checking company data is kept secure both on and offsite and carrying out random checks for clients. We work alongside IT departments to offer an independent assessment and offer advice where necessary. A hardware reset or hard reset of a computer system is a hardware operation that re-initializes the core hardware components of the system, thus ending all current software operations in the system. This is typically, but not always, followed by booting of the system into firmware that re-initializes the rest of the system, and restarts the operating system. Hardware configuration references the details and system resource settings allotted for a specific device. Computer specialists improve hardware performance by adjusting configurations. All hardware systems have configuration settings that can affect performance and system function; however configuration information may include available memory, power management features and devices that are connected such as modems, disc drives and serial ports. Phortress IT are dedicated to ensuring that all your data is disposed of in a suitable way so that no other organisation can get their hands on it. There are many ways to breach the security of your hardware either done by employees or hackers/Trojans. Phortress can be relied upon to certify all your technical needs are done efficiently.
