Innovative Cybersecurity Tools Your Business Needs

Innovative Cybersecurity Tools Your Business Needs

Despite the events of recent months, cybersecurity can never be too far from your awareness—especially where your business is concerned. As a refresher, let’s go over a few solutions that you need to have in place to protect your business from the persistent threats that are out there.

Network Security Essentials

Protecting your network will require you to implement a variety of critical tools, including dedicated appliances, virtual private networking (VPN) clients, and firewalls. Doing so will help you shore up your potential vulnerabilities.

Of course, this isn’t all that you need to do. Here are some of the other protections you should have in place:

Network Monitoring and Threat Management

Just in case your assorted defenses don’t keep a threat out, you will want to be sure that you can detect them once they’re inside and isolate them. Implementing the tools that enable you to monitor your network’s health will help you to accomplish this goal. A managed service provider can help you do so, proactively monitoring your network to ensure that any threats or potential problems are detected before they materialize into issues. Using today’s tools, a trustworthy provider can keep most threats out, and resolve the ones that make it in.

Mobile Device and Endpoint Management

Remote work is exceptionally popular right now, for a very good reason, so you need to be sure that your business’ data remains under your business’ control. Tools like mobile device management and endpoint management can help you maintain this control by moderating what different devices can access in terms of your data and applications.

Security Training and Management

Finally, we must address one of the biggest threats to any organization’s security: the employees who work there. User error and phishing are two of today’s biggest cybersecurity problems. To minimize their impacts, you need to be sure that your team understands cybersecurity best practices and how to react to potential security events. We recommend that you regularly evaluate their knowledge and practical capabilities through simulated security events and other means. On top of this, you also have to make sure that your business (and everyone in it) is abiding by the assorted compliance requirements that have been established, especially those pertaining to cybersecurity.
