Protect Against Cybercrime
When it comes to cyberattacks and cybercrime, hackers don’t care how big your company is; they care how weak your security is. They’re more likely to target the companies with the weakest security, no matter how big or small they may be. Ransomware attacks can be particularly devastating, the average cost to recover from a ransomware attack has risen to more than $84,000. And, it’s estimated that businesses will fall victim to ransomware every 11 seconds in 2021.
Cybercrime is a big problem and cyberattacks get more sophisticated all the time. In fact, 87% of small business executives agree that security is a high priority and have made data privacy and security a part of their business culture. But keeping ahead of the bad guys is exhausting, and finding the right solutions to protect your people, your devices, email, and your network can get complicated. Small businesses need complete, layered security solutions because no one technology can eliminate cybercrime like ransomware attacks by itself.
You need protection against cybercrime on multiple fronts
To defend against cyberattacks, it’s important to look at the various points of entry and spread to make sure your business is protected. The bad news is that no single technology can eliminate ransomware by itself because you need to protect multiple points of entry. The good news is that the security technology we offer is cloud-based and works together seamlessly, so your employees can work safely from any device, at any time, from any location.
You need to make sure that the people who access your systems are who they say they are. A multi-factor authentication solution helps protect sensitive data by verifying the identity of users, devices, and applications with secure two-factor authentication.
People get on your network in multiple ways. If you have a mobile or remote workforce, they may be connecting from an office, a home laptop, or a mobile device. Endpoint security can detect and block malware and viruses across employee devices. If malware gets on any user’s device, it can then spread through your network. You need advanced malware protection for all of your devices and critical servers.
If you have people, you have email. Every day people click malicious links or open harmful email attachments that download ransomware. If your email is protected, the device can’t spread the ransomware across your network to critical systems. Cloud-based email like Office 365 isn’t immune from hacking either. Cloud Mailbox Defense adds security inside Microsoft’s cloud, so it’s as close as possible to the mailbox.
Once malware finds a way in, it spreads across your network, and encrypts your files or takes down critical systems. The Internet and networks don’t work without the Domain Name System (DNS) to route data, and neither does most ransomware. DNS Security provides the first line of defence against threats to protect users everywhere with flexible, fast, and effective cloud-delivered security.
