Ask any CEO today what their number one concern is regarding their business and they will now state “security”. Seems like once a week you here about another major breach. In the past security was just protecting systems from viruses and malware. Now you need a multi-layered approach to protect your network, systems and mobile devices. It’s not just big business either, small businesses are just as vulnerable and maybe even more so since they don’t have proper security in place. Hackers are no longer just one person sitting behind a computer, they are organized, communicate and share exploits. Some are state sponsored. They are not looking to disrupt your business, just the opposite. They want information, they want to take it and leave without knowing they were there. What information do they want? Intellectual Property, Social Security numbers, Credit Card Numbers, Bank Accounts, any Identity information. Some even hold your data for ransom. Antheon offers best-of-breed products that protect your business.
What do we mean by layers? Lets take a typical exploit: A bad guy sends you an email message that looks identical to typical message you would receive from one of your vendors. (Mail Security), You inadvertently click on an attachment or link and are brought to a website which looks like your vendors site (Web Security). This is a fake site with the sole purpose of installing a malware application onto your computer (Antivirus). This site probes your computer for an exploit, a piece of software that you neglected to update or did not know about (Patch Management). The malware is planted and the intruder can now access your system (Firewall). All of the highlighted items are a layered approach, layers are the only way to safely run and protect your business, employees, customers and intellectual properties. Security does not have to be expensive. However, think about the cost of losing your data. What happens if your employees or customers identifications are stolen and posted? What happened to those CEO’s of the companies you read about? What’s your data worth, a lot more than you think!
