Take control of your network security.
When it comes to network security, it is easy for small to medium sized businesses to say “it won't happen to me”! The reality is that attacks on all networks have been increasing year after year as hackers have become more sophisticated, and small businesses are being affected every day by relaxed or non-existent security policies. At 724 Internet Solutions of Santa Barbara County, our biggest call volume is from clients and non clients who tell us their computers or networks are hacked, have viruses, or worse.
Recent studies show that nearly 1 in 3 small businesses networks would be compromised in 2017. With the ever-increasing technological advances, it is likely that these numbers will climb in the coming years, posing a significant risk for a potential breach, lost or stolen data, or some type of malicious threat. Don't put your network security at risk. Don't put your business at risk.
There are a number of ways 724 Internet Solutions of Santa Barbara County helps to ensure that you are at minimum risk:
- Updates - Keeping computers and network equipment updated is one of the most effective steps to preventing a possible network security issue.
- Firewall - 724 uses Sonicwall for our own networks and we have never had a virus or have been hacked inside our own system since 2007. A common mistake in small to medium business networks is the lack of a business grade firewall solution. Often business owners are unaware of the difference between having a network router and having a network firewall in place.
- Passwords - Password and password protection are proving to be an area that needs attention when discussing network security. Using sophisticated software and tools, hackers are easily gaining access to small business networks through simple or default passwords. Every business should be changing their passwords often and use hard to guess passwords.
- Antivirus/Antispam - Most people know that antivirus and antispam software are necessary components of network security, but many people don’t realize why its so important until their computer or network is infected with a virus, malware, spyware, or a host of other potentially dangerous issues.
No matter the size of your business, network security is a definite requirement for every business in the digital age. If you are worried or unsure of where to start with an internal security audit, our team can help get you on track.
