To Click or Not to Click? It’s no longer a question

We’re forever receiving links in emails. Sometimes they make you wonder if they’re safe. Sometimes you click without thinking.

SYS3’s filtering service just got a whole lot better. Our latest product upgrade will remove that doubt entirely.

INTRODUCING… Link Protection

What is Link Protection?

We’ve all been there. You receive an email, perhaps one you’ve been expecting, with a link to click and something just doesn’t feel right about it. You probably do one of three things: Ignore it, Click it (and hope for the best) or call SYS3. Link Protection is an added feature to SYS3’s current email filtering and protection service that offers an additional layer of protection and added confidence by protecting you against malicious links.

How does it work?

When activated, links contained inside emails are replaced with links to the Link Protection System. The original links are analysed for suspicious behaviour, bad content and authenticity. When a link is clicked, you will see this…

If the link is safe, you will be quickly redirected to the link’s original destination. If it’s not safe, you will be warned that suspicious activity has been detected. With various configuration options, you will either be given the option to continue anyway or be blocked from accessing the link completely.

Why does SYS3 recommend this feature?

There are an unfathomable number of scams, viruses and email-borne threats out there and they’re becoming incredibly intelligent and hard to defend against. Anything that can protect your email, particularly your business email, should be given great consideration.

When it comes to Link Protection, not only will it remove the uncertainty that you may regularly experience with email but it will greatly reduce one of the biggest threats to your business…. user error. Human error is the number one cause of cyber attack and financial fraud in business. If you have the opportunity to reduce it… you shouldn’t hesitate.

One powerful, easy to configure feature has the capacity to stop a ransomware attack and serious financial fraud. The best bit? If you already have SYS3’s Email Security service, Link Protection is included completely free of charge.

    Backing up is VITAL!

    Backing up should be everyones top priority. All too often we see businesses decide to start backing up the wrong side of a costly hard drive disaster or data breach.

    With viruses and malware now capable of causing so much, often irreversible, damage, a substantial backup is imperative. If you’re infected with ransomware, a recent backup often the only way to get you back up and running.

    Why offsite backup and not a removable hard drive?

    Preferably both! But never just a hard drive. Why? Hard drives can fail. It’s as simple as that. Ransomware infections can also creep onto hard drives if they’re left plugged into an infected machine. 

    ​SYS3 use the most reliable and intelligent backup solutions on the market to ensure that our customers’ data is kept secure.

    Why buy your hardware from SYS3?

    Years ago, SYS3 started out by building and supplying custom computer hardware. We know our stuff.

    We keep up with the latest in technology so we are able to provide our customers with the best possible equipment without breaking the bank. Whether you need a new server, laptop, printer or network switch, we’ll always provide you with a variety of options and recommendations to suit your business needs.

    The more advanced technology becomes, the more advanced the bad guys become. Gone are the days when attackers were easy to spot in a badly worded email.

    ​Did you know you can get an infection just by hovering your mouse over a dodgy website banner? Worse? Traditional antivirus products cannot protect you against everything.

    ​Human error is still largely responsible for infections and viruses but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have the best protection possible to safeguard your employees and ultimately, your business.

    ​Partnered with Heimdal, SYS3 provide market-leading protection that is proactive, not reactive like traditional antivirus.


    Spam email makes up 70% of ALL email traffic across the world and social engineering means scammers can directly target key employees. Is your job title on social media?

    Over 60% of breaches are caused by human error. Are you confident that your staff are fully trained to spot email-borne threats and avoid falling victim?

    How SYS3 can help

    Just one click has the potential to grind your entire business to a halt and generate a costly bill to put right. What makes things worse is that email viruses are now incredibly clever, highly convincing, and can be very difficult to spot.

    ​Our priority is to make sure our customers are supported and protected as much as possible. 99% of our customers have adopted our mail filtering service and it comes highly recommended. It’s the first line of defence and a vital tool.
