When it comes to network security, almost everyone thinks it will never happen to their business. After, all it’s the big guys hackers are after, right? Sadly, this couldn’t be more wrong.
In recent years hackers are increasingly more sophisticated and small businesses are being impacted nearly every day due to non-existent security policies, or security that isn’t set up correctly or is set too low.
A study performed just a few a year or so ago demonstrated just this fact: 1 out of every 5 small businesses networks run the risk of being compromised — data stolen, files corrupted, malicious threats, and much more. Even with new technology and the modern awareness of security risks, businesses still could lose as much as $150 on average for each record lost, breached or stolen.
Don’t let your business be a statistic. At Absolute Computer Systems we minimize your cyber cyber security risks:
- Stay Current – Outdated operating systems as well as firmware and software updates are effective steps to prevent network security problems. We’ll make sure your systems are running on the most current programs as well as that our equipment isn’t leaving your business at risk.
- Proactive Defense Measures – A router isn’t the same as a firewall when it comes to protecting your business network. We’ll ensure you have a firewall in place to block malicious activity before it even gets to your IT systems.
- Strengthen Password Protection – Hackers are using sophisticated software and tools to gain access to small business networks. This technology allows them to access your IT systems, take control and do significant damage. We’ll verify that your passwords have been set up correctly, and we’ll create complex passwords that make it nearly impossible for hackers to breach your password barrier.
- Virus, Spam and Other Protection – While most people recognize the importance of running antivirus and antispam software few realize it until after their IT system has been infected. Viruses, malware, spyware and a variety of other dangerous threats can be minimized through antiviral and antispam software. We’ll install and set up your software, and make sure your system is scanned for threats. And, if you computer or network is infected, we’ll help to make it healthy while making it more secure.
No matter the size of your business, network security is a definite requirement for every business in the digital age. If you are worried or unsure of where to start contact us.
