The FBI put out an alert regarding hackers releasing a dangerous virus, and threats are constantly changing. Sony was personally attacked by a virus that leaked a great deal of sensitive information and caused huge financial losses. The FBI has privately informed fortune 500 companies and their tech divisions about what to look for and how to stay protected.
How do small businesses stay protected? Online, everyone is equal – big or small. Hackers basically use 1000s of PCs to search for vulnerable networks regardless of size. Malware and Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are common. Alvarez Technology Group now offers Cyber Protect Services.
- Monitors Internet connection and prevents any known bad sites or servers from entering your network. If we detect there’s an infected PC, it will be immediately quarantined. If you click on a link that may typically infect a network, you’ll be alerted immediately.
- Provides identity theft protection, monitoring your e-mail or any e-mail sent from your business to ensure they are secure.
- Offers content filtering; you can choose where you want PCs on your businesses network to be able to go
Remember, nothing is foolproof – this is simply another layer. You must still practice ‘safe computing’ and stay away from known bad sites, don’t respond or click on links from unknown sources, and keep up-to-date with knowledge of threats.
