Connecting your business’ network to the internet opens up virtually unlimited opportunities for growth and communication. The proliferation of smart devices and wireless connectivity lets employees, customers and partners connect to your network effectively and efficiently. However, this power and flexibility also exposes you to greater security risks and cyberattacks. Hackers are persistently probing for ways to infiltrate companies of all sizes, and threaten your very ability to do business.
Companies with fewer than 500 employees appear to suffer the largest number of successful attacks with a 75% or greater susceptibility rate. Many independent studies have shown that small and medium sized businesses are falling well behind when it comes to protecting their networks from cyber criminals. In more than 2/3 of SMB cyber-attacks, companies report that hackers were able to breach their IT defenses in a matter of minutes.
Conventional security appliances are no longer reliable. The days of managing multiple security applications have long since faded into the past. To protect your network, secure your data, and preserve the integrity of client information, a new generation firewall is required. Regular reporting and vulnerability assessments must also be part of your security strategy.
Even your best workers can be a serious weakness to your company if they aren’t knowledgeable and vigilant. Only by educating them and implementing company-wide security processes can you be assured that you have done everything possible to protect your data. Educating your employees alone is proven to reduce vulnerability up to 90%. With a carefully planned and executed security program, you can fortify your business against cyber-attacks.
“We believe our success is due to the strength of our team, the breadth of our services, our flexibility in responding to clients, and our focus on strategic support.”
