Our company has earned the CompTIA Security Trustmark+ — the premier security certification in our industry. Here are 15 ways to protect your business from a cyberattack.
It’s important to establish a baseline and close existing vulnerabilities. When was your last assessment?
SPAM EMAIL DETECTION
Secure your email. Most attacks originate in your email. We’ll help you choose a service designed to reduce spam and your exposure to attacks on your staff via email.
Apply security policies on your network. Examples: Deny or limit USB file storage access, enable enhanced password policies, set user screen timeouts, and limit user access.
Train your users — often! Teach them about data security, email attacks, and your policies and procedures. We offer a web-based training solution and “done for you” security policies.
Keep Microsoft, Adobe, and Java products updated for better security. We provide a “critical update” service via automation to protect your computers from the latest known attacks.
Backup local. Backup to the cloud. Have an offline backup for each month of the year. Test your backups often. And if you aren’t convinced your backups are working properly, call us ASAP.
Turn on Intrusion Detection and Intrusion Prevention features. Send the log files to a managed SIEM. And if your IT team doesn’t know what these things are, call us today!
ADVANCED ENDPOINT DETECTION & RESPONSE
Protect your computers and data from malware, viruses, and cyber attacks with advanced endpoint security. Protect against file-less and script based threats and even rollback a ransomware attack.
Utilize Multi-Factor Authentication whenever you can on your network, banking websites, and even social media. So even if your password is stolen, your data stays protected.
WEB GATEWAY SECURITY
Internet security is a race against time. Cloud based security detects web and email threats as they emerge on the internet, and blocks them on your network within seconds – before they reach users.
MOBILE DEVICE SECURITY
Today’s cyber criminals attempt to steal data or access your network by way of your employees’ phones and tablets. They’re counting on you to neglect this piece of the puzzle. Mobile device security closes this gap.
DARK WEB RESEARCH
Knowing in real-time what passwords and accounts have been posted on the Dark Web will allow you to be proactive in preventing a data breach. We scan the Dark Web and take action to protect your business from stolen credentials.
Whenever possible, the goal is to encrypt files at rest, in motion (think email) and especially on mobile devices.
Inconsistent compliance can cause lasting financial and reputational damage. Ensure compliance and security with the right data security controls. Which compliance standard(s) are you subject to?
Uses big data engines to review all event and security logs from all covered devices to protect against advanced threats and to meet compliance requirements.
