Cyber criminals consider small business a prime target since small companies often don’t have IT staffs to protect their valuable data.
Cyber attacks have grown significantly in quantity and sophistication as well. The number of unique new threats was around 2.5 per hour in 2004, 8,200 per hour in 2012 and over 100,000 per hour in 2013! Traditional antivirus software isn’t enough to protect your company as cyber crime has advanced from traditional malware to more sophisticated threats that can “hide” and avoid detection by traditional AV software.
Network security and intrusion prevention must be a key part of your organization’s technology plan. Would-be “hackers” and malware attacks are significant threats to your organization’s data integrity and productivity. A business-class firewall can help mitigate these threats.
Unfortunately, the cost of a business-class firewall has kept many organizations from implementing this important foundational technology. Many small businesses have resorted to using consumer-grade routers in place of firewalls. These consumer-grade routers offer little to no protection from today’s threats. Additionally, these low-end devices don’t offer speed optimization or detailed logging or monitoring of connections.
For organizations that DO implement a business-class firewall, many neglect to keep their devices up-to-date with the latest patches and firmware. Security threats evolve quickly, and if your business’s firewall isn’t kept up-to-date with the latest patches and firmware, your data may be exposed.
