Active Computer Support or ACS is a Professional Engineering and Information Technology (IT) organisation operating in Blackheath in the Blue Mountains. ACS specialises in the setup and maintenance of Servers and Networks for small and medium size Businesses. This is a comprehensive service that can include backup and data/system recovery in minimum time.
All business and personal computing is on the cloud in some way whether we actively seek this computing feature or not. Internet Fraud is taking over drugs as the main income generating activity of organised crime. There are two criteria for becoming their target â?? how easy it is to access the computer and level of return they are likely to get by accessing the computer. The main vulnerability in all cloud access (including banking and cloud accounting) is not the cloud provider but is the ease in which hackers can gain access to the local computer or insecure local network. Once in your computer or network, these hackers can extract (cloud) login details or access personal and/or sensitive data or use your computer to remotely access any of your accounts.
ACS offers our clients a cost effective and secure solution to this vulnerability in the form of a Linux server controller of their local network. Putting this server on your network speeds up the network and makes it very much harder for hackers to get access to your computers and use or extract any of your login details or data.
The internet is getting more and more unsafe â?? as well as viruses we have to be on the lookout for malware, Trojans, worms, RATS, piggyback programs, out-of-date utilities, unsafe optimiser programs/toolbars and blackmailers. Many people canâ??t keep up with what they have to do to keep business and home computers safe. ACS also offers a range of maintenance agreements for businesses and individuals. We can set up your network to be secure and then set up a regular online out-of-hours maintenance program. ...read more
I've been using Active Computer Support since 2015 and, I require a fair bit of computer help. Jo, Matt and Sean before them, have networked various PCs, and helped me back-up the whole system in various ways: I have a very useful and reliable setup. Jo in particular has helped me with computer problems at very short notice, has helped with both hardware and software issues and has given me good advice about which gadgets might be available to support my computer work.
Jo helped to integrate computers with my entertainment system, helped fix the mess left after I connected to the NBN and has generally covered all myread more
This is the 1st time I have ever reviewed a business. This one is terrible, over serviced, overpriced and held to ransom to pick up my computer. I asked for a quote and made several call to see how it was going and got just one in return. After 5 days they told me it was ready without having asked if I wanted to spend that much money. It would been only a little bit dearer to buy a new computer.
