SMBs Are Being Targeted for Cyberattacks
Don’t let yours be next.
When you’re running a small to medium-sized business, you may think that you’re not going to become a victim of a cyberattack. Maybe you think that your data and files aren’t valuable enough to be stolen—or even worse, that your current cybersecurity strategy is strong enough to protect them. But nothing could be farther from the truth.
In fact, cybercriminals are becoming smarter every day, and since their methods are constantly changing, your security needs will also need to evolve. To stay safe, adopt a comprehensive cybersecurity solution that protects your entire organization.
Why Are SMBs Top Targets?
- They often lack comprehensive protection
- They don’t understand the magnitude of their risk
- They underestimate the value of their data
- They are unprepared to battle cybercriminals
Our sophisticated cybersecurity solutions protect all of your business environments, including your brick-and-mortar and your cloud. You’ll also need to secure any home offices, mobile devices, hardware, software and cloud-based apps like Microsoft 365.
Components of a
Well-Designed Security Solution
It's important to establish a baseline and close existing vulnerabilities. When was your last assessment?
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.
Advanced Endpoint Detection & Response
Protect your computers data from malware, viruses, and cyberattacks with advanced endpoint security. Today's latest technology (which replaces your outdated antivirus solution) protects against file-less and script-based threats and can even rollback a ransomware attack.
Utilize Multi-Factor Authentication whenever you can on your network, banking websites, and even social media. It adds an additional layer of protection to ensure that even if your password does get stolen, your data stays protected.
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.
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 that have been posted for sale.
SIEM / Log Management
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.
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 the user.
Mobile Device Security
Today's cybercriminals 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.
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!
Whenever possible, the goal is to encrypt files at rest in motion (think email) and especially on mobile devices.
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.
