Cybersecurity Solutions That Your Business Needs | Pegasys Technologies

Cybersecurity solutions help to protect businesses from any number of cyber threats, but they also increase the efficiency of an organization. Every company should have a cybersecurity strategy that protects it against any cyber threats. These eight cybersecurity solutions must-haves will ensure your company remains well-protected.

1.) Anti-malware

Anti-malware is software that is designed to detect and remove malicious software (malware) from IT systems and computing devices. If there is a breach in security past a firewall, anti-malware will mitigate the threat. These types of solutions have become more proactive recently with heuristic scanning and zero-day threat protection to guard against any unknown threats.

2.) Unified Threat Management

Unified threat management (UTM) is a single security solution that provides multiple layers of security by detecting intrusion and protecting with firewalls. A UTM usually includes many functions such as antivirus, anti-spam, network firewalls, and intrusion detection and prevention. This is a simple solution so all security tasks can be under one umbrella and supported by one IT team.

3.) Employee Training

Employees themselves pose a threat to the security of a company. Many breaches of security happen because employees have been tricked into an online scam. However, training for all employees can help them to identify these threats and how to avoid them. Training should occur regularly and include current security policies and procedures.

During training, employees should also be made aware of habits that will keep their devices and the information they store, safe. Creating long and unique passwords is one way for employees to keep their accounts secure, especially when they are using an unsecured Wi-Fi network.

3.) Mobile Device Security

We use our mobile devices for just about everything, including accessing business information while on the road. Mobile devices are more likely to get lost or stolen as compared to a laptop or computer, which increases the risk of a cyberattack.

Every employee’s mobile device should have MDM software which gives administrators better control by utilizing a web-based dashboard that can be accessed from anywhere at any time.

Mobile device security protects your data from security threats that lead to data breaches, unauthorized access to sensitive data, and even data loss as a result of user error or a stolen or misplaced device.

4.) Perform a Security Assessment

Testing your system and security processes from time to time can be beneficial. In order to see how secure your system is, hire a security expert to try to hack your network. This will identify areas that might be weak and need better security reinforcements. This also helps your network to adapt to new and upcoming security risks.

5.) Virtual Private Networking

Remote working has increased the risk of employees doing company work on an unsecured home network. An unsecured network makes information more vulnerable to an attack. A VPN, or virtual private network, allows a secure connection to be created to another network over the internet. They can be used to access restricted websites and hide your browsing activity on the internet.

6.) Multifactor Authentication

Even with strong password policies, employees can be susceptible to online scams. In addition to unique passwords, logins should be monitored so that administrators can shut down rights on devices that have been compromised.

Multifactor authentication (MFA) uses biometrics such as fingerprints, one-time activation codes, or facial ID scans. A security token is generated to decrease phishing and account attacks.

7.) 24/7 Monitoring

A cyberattack can occur at any time of day, not just during typical business hours. The amount of phishing scams that exist make employees particularly vulnerable to a breach of security. Monitoring of accounts will decrease the chance of a threat entering your network. This service is offered by many MSPs and is necessary for every business to prevent a cyberattack.
