Reports of security breaches are coming in fast and furiously. What started as a trickle of breaches at a handful of retailers like Target and Home Depot has turned into an all-out assault on business networks across the globe. Security breaches can literally stop your business in its tracks. Securing your business network has never been a more important consideration for your continued business operations.
Network Security – A Necessity
Your network is the heart of your business, connecting your employees to the software, communication, and information applications you need to operate your business. A properly secured network keeps your business operational.
- Keeps your business flexible as conditions change
- Provides a secure foundation from which you can interact safely
- Allows you to collaborate effectively with team members and customers
- Ensures governmental and industry standards compliance
- Allows you to control who has information access, as well as how and when information is accessed
- Reduces costs (data loss and security breaches cost U.S. businesses almost $70 billion a year)
- Allows you to leverage a flexible and remote workforce without risk
- Reduces risks of downtime, data loss, and litigation
Developing a secure network is more than just having policies and procedures in place if you don’t have the hardware and software to back up your plan. A truly secure network can only be achieved by making sure every access point – every email address, every laptop, every file – is securely stored, controlled, and monitored.
