Understanding and Comparing IT Security Services
Every organization is vulnerable to a cyber-attack. Cyber-attacks are growing and becoming more frequent, and the hacking community is growing. There is nothing you can do to get 100 percent protection.
Every organization has “holes” in their IT protection. There are two elements key to maintaining your operational readiness against a Cybersecurity threat:
Much has been written about threats and tools, but the bottom line is to be able to detect something questionable is happening and then quickly remediate the problem.
At a minimum, you must have “essential” tools like virus, malware protection, intrusion protection and intrusion detection.
How vulnerable are you? Really?
Attacks can target; hardware, firmware, wearables, BYOD devices, Internet of Things and through API’s. Attacks can target employee systems, cloud services, or direct to employees including malware, ransomware, and denial of services attacks. Attacks could be just simple human error creating IT Security “holes”.
70% of enterprises will be attacked or incur some Cybersecurity issues every year. It is going to happen…. So get prepared. Synoptek can help. It makes sense to have your managed service provider also provide you IT security services on the devices they already manage.
