Choosing the Right Security Tools Protects Your Business Assets

Choosing the Right Security Tools Protects Your Business Assets

You invest in the things you care about, things like your business. You want to make sure that you are doing all that you can to protect it from harm. Let’s take a look at some of the approaches you might take to secure your business from threats, as well as what you should look for in each solution that you might consider.

First, it’s important to know which types of data might be targeted by cybercriminals.

Your Business is a Gold Mine for Hackers

Regardless of industry, size, scope, and scale, your business has something of value to cybercriminals. If you accept payments (and we’re sure you do), then you have credit card information stored somewhere on your infrastructure—and that’s valuable to hackers. You also have to consider that you collect information from your clients, customers, and even your employees, and that’s not even mentioning any trade secrets you might have locked away somewhere. A hacker doesn’t always know what kind of information they want, but they can be pretty confident that you have something they want.

With Proper Security Measures, Your Data Can Remain Safe

You can do a lot to protect your business, perhaps even more than you think you can. For one, you can train your employees to make better decisions throughout the workday, and for another you can implement comprehensive data backup solutions with an all-inclusive disaster recovery strategy. Furthermore, you can implement properly-configured cybersecurity tools, including:

Network Firewalls

Ideally, you don’t have to deal with threats because they have been stopped in their tracks. A well-configured firewall can do all of this by blocking threats from ever entering your network in the first place.

Antivirus

The best way to deal with threats is to neutralize them before you have to worry about them. With an antivirus solution, complete with updated threat definitions, you can keep your network safe from most threats.

Multi-Factor Authentication

Passwords are used by everyone, but you can make them so much more secure through the use of additional measures, also known as multi-factor authentication. We recommend that all passwords are complex, easy to remember but difficult to guess, and unique to each account.  Multi-factor authentication adds in additional measures like biometrics and generated codes to help make accounts more secure.

Physical Security

Your physical security is just as important as your cybersecurity, as someone can easily steal data by copying sensitive information from devices on your infrastructure. It’s remarkably easy to steal data, even accidentally, like copying data to their own hardware or walking off with data storage devices. You need to keep tabs on your technology while also making sure you are watching your office and keeping it secure with keys and security cameras.
