How important is your company's data?

Hackings and data breaches are making the news in greater frequency and with greater scale of impact. With governments now imposing larger fines and penalties on companies that fail to keep their data safe, Cyber Security is becoming an ever-more important task for organisations to manage.

So you have the latest firewall and anti-virus technologies. Are they enough?

Unfortunately, no.

Upon investigation into some of the recent and most expensive, news-hitting breaches, they had existing anti-virus and firewall protection. 

Worse, many organisations don’t know they’ve been breached until months after the attack.

This has left many organisations with their reputation in tatters along with a huge clean-up bill (plus fines). This is why the average cost of a data breach in Australia now stands at $2.4 million dollars.

So how do you really protect your organisation from data breaches, hackings, ransomware and other malware?

Introducing ShellProtect

ShellProtect is a unique Cloud-based Cyber Security Manager that has been built using recommendations from the USA’s National Security Agency (NSA) and the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD).

It is the only Cyber Security product to provide Detection, Protection, Hardening and Reporting combined into a single tool and works alongside your existing firewall and anti-virus software to secure and harden your networks against all threats.

ShellProtect is an Australian product containing the knowledge of Australia’s top Cyber Security expert, Martin Boyd (former Executive Manager Cyber Security at Commonwealth Bank, Director Cyber Security at Vertex Technologies and Cyber Security Lecturer at Optus Macquarie University Cyber Security Hub). 

ShellProtect Features


Early detection is critical.

Most hackers are detected six months or more after their hacking activity. ShellProtect includes logs of key security events (like a SIEM – Security Information Event Management) function to reduce the time to detection.


System-hardening expertise in an app.

Securing a system can be an evolving, complicated and expensive task. ShellProtect lets you apply system-wide hardening with a single mouse click.



The only real defence against malware.

The number one recommendation by the NSA and ASD is to use Application Whitelisting. ShellProtect includes an easy-to-use method to automatically set Application and patent pending IP Whitelisting across all your systems.


Understand your level of protection.

A comprehensive dashboard lets you see the current security maturity level and key risks across all your Windows systems.

Why do you need ShellProtect?

Prevent Data Breaches

According to the Ponemon Institute, the average cost of a data breach in Australia is $2.4 million dollars. Further losses due to your customers losing confidence could be incalculable.

ShellProtect prevents data breaches by physically locking-out hackers in ways that firewalls do not, and exposes current/recent hacking attempts.

Beef-Up Your Firewall

Appliance Firewalls are not as effective as you might expect. They protect only at the edge and even then still have holes that allow emails and internet users to get through, and this is a common way malware gets in. Even VPNs are vulnerable, if one of your users’ computers is compromised.

ShellProtect works alongside your existing firewall or VPN to provide the ultimate in security against the most determined hackers.

Boost Your Anti-Virus

Anti-Virus software cannot be trusted to solve the problem – there are hundreds of millions new malware discovered each year.

Installing ShellProtect alongside your existing Anti-Virus software creates no additional overhead or decrease in performance, and yet prevents even the newest malware threat from running on your systems – even before your AV provider has provided an update against it!


“ShellProtect is a great product which gives businesses who have staff utilising sensitive data the ability to manage their network with greater granularity at a reasonable price point. I’ve found the management tool easy to implement and use, and would recommend it to others.”
Michael Zhou Executive of Financial Services

“Given the increasing frequency of external attacks and internal misuse, the same-old same-old was no longer sufficient to protect our shared IT systems. We needed to go the extra mile. We have been using ShellProtect for over a year and it has greatly increased our confidence in our IT security. The specialist consulting, regular updates and support provided by Vertex ensured its effectiveness, and made installation and operation of ShellProtect easy.”
Dave Collins Managing Director of Engineering
