From election interference allegations and natural disasters to topics like cloud-service misconfigurations and API vulnerabilities the industry has been experiencing over the last couple of months, no one is immune to data breaches. Your systems and data are a constant target for hackers on the hunt. In fact, according to the Verizon 2018 Data Breach Investigation Report, a whopping 58% of cyber-attack victims were classified as small businesses.
As part of this October’s National Cyber Security Awareness Month, we highlight 4 of today’s critical security challenges, and how we can proactively address them before they can wreak havoc on your bottom line.
- Identity Management
Shortcomings in web application firewalls (WAF) along with misconfigurations in public-facing websites have made identity management a key factor in securing your information and systems on all sides. You must have multi-factor authentication in place to effectively avert this threat. Our Premonition™ Security Suite features managed identity verification options utilizing Duo Security technology to ensure secure application connections with every user and every device.
- Regular Vulnerability Testing
Human errors in set up of application programming interfaces and cloud services are quickly becoming serious security risks. Penetration testing on a routine basis, as well as continuous monitoring provides an additional layer of protection. Our Premonition Security Suite engineers work with you to simulate tactics, techniques and procedures of real-world attackers to discover vulnerabilities to remediate before they can be used against you.
- Disaster Recovery
Crafting a disaster recovery plan is not enough for true peace of mind. Performing routine dry runs can identify areas that are not meeting recovery-point expectations and time requirements, along with any vulnerabilities to remediate. Our Cloud Backup | CloudDR™ services take a combination approach to planning and testing rapid-recovery tactics that make business continuity easy, dependable and efficient.
- Security Awareness Training and Education
From social engineering and malicious websites to ransomware and phishing, ensuring your employees are educated with the latest cyber-threat information helps protect your business assets and credibility, while promoting online safety outside of work. We provide interactive, instructor-led courses online that cover a range of relevant security topics.
