Why Security Should be a Priority for Every Small Business
The world changed. Has your I.T. environment changed with it?
Over the past two years, unprecedented changes occurred to the world as we knew it.
Businesses have had to recover from the lockdowns, support the changing needs of the remote workforce, 5 billion monthly teleconferences a day, rising inflation and the continued disruption of supply chains making hardware nearly impossible to get. And cyberattacks have become so sophisticated that even experts cannot detect them before it’s too late.
As we learned from the Solar Wind event, it’s not just about crypto viruses, but larger, longer espionage plays by extremely sophisticated threat actor.
Did you know:
- 43% of data breaches occur at small businesses?
- 62% of small businesses lack the skills in-house to deal with security issues.
- $120K is the average cost of a small business data breach in 2018?
What have we learned from all of this? Security needs to be wherever your employees are. Whether at home, in a hotel, at a coffee shop or in the office, securing and monitoring those endpoints gives businesses the best chance of deflecting the threat. Business owners should consider implementing end point detection and response to protect their remote workforce.,
Endpoint Detection and Response, “EDR” or Managed Detection and Response “MDR”, closes the security gaps in your endpoint defense strategy. An endpoint detection and response solution is an essential component of a modern layered defense strategy to protect your organization from malicious actors.
Not only will an Endpoint Detection and Response solution improve your security, but many insurances companies will also offer a discount to companies that deploy an EDR solution offsetting the cost of the software.
Having a layered defense with an EDR solution can stop 97% of attacks before they happen.
