Think we’re being dramatic? Ask Equifax.

A partner in technology is an invaluable resource in this day and age, and that’s why it’s important to find a company you can trust. At TechArk, we are security-focused, incorporating preventative measures into the development process at every turn.

Cyber criminals and cyber theft has never been so out of control, with 2016 and 2017 seeing unprecedented levels of web warfare. Hackers are out to steal anything they can get their digital digits on, including your identity, finances, and medical information.

Nobody is safe – even huge commercial corporations are getting burned. The entertainment industry (HBOSony, etc.) has collectively lost millions in pilfered content; healthcare providers such as hospitals experienced ransomware attacks on a truly terrifying scale this summer as patients went without treatment and surgeries were postponed; finally, and arguably the most terrifying, the United States election was almost certainly influenced by cyber interference.

With such villains on the prowl, and such big brands vulnerable, it may seem as though resistance is futile but don’t despair: TechArk is here to shed the bright light of knowledge on these dark days of digital depravity.

We all know the problem: our personal information is on the web, in the cloud, out of reach while our devices are connected, switched on, plugged in. That means our info is constantly in transit, flitting from here to there like a butterfly. So what’s the answer?

There is no one-size-fits-all solution.

We’ve passed a point of no return, technologically speaking. Gone are the days when mere anti-virus software was sufficient. Cyber threats are physically real. The widespread and varied risks mean that widespread and varied security practices are critical – whether for your personal information or professional brand.

Being proactive with digital security is your best bet, as well as utilizing a combination of defensive measures in order to better protect yourself, your finances, and your family or employees. Taking a comprehensive and holistic approach is by far the strongest approach to securing your digital assets.

Of course, we don’t expect the average Joe to possess the knowledge, equipment, or time to research, learn, and implement such advanced methods and techniques. That’s why you have us!

At TechArk, we read the murky tea leaves of security standards – incorporating these ever-shifting protocols into our software and hosting solutions – so you don’t have to. Our super-secure-defense system begins at the beginning, with security-focused design. By establishing multiple layers of defense and incorporating them into the design, we take protective proactivity seriously from the get-go.

Worried about an old existing database? Don’t be. TechArk’s skilled programmers have the skills and the know-how to provide security refactoring to legacy codebases. To put it simply, we can rewrite your old code (the language which makes up a website, app, database, or anything digital, really) to include more security, without sacrificing the look, feel, or functionality. It’s a pretty cool trick that we’re fairly proud of, and it’s never too late to get started.

Bring us your big ideas and we’ll provide end-to-end security-focused design, whether web, mobile, or cloud. Bring us your old website or app and we’ll refactor it for the modern cyber playground. Remember, it’s never too late.

We’ll say it again: Procrastination is the Death of Security.
