Your IT Security Is Serious Stuff

We don’t joke around when it comes to our clients’ IT security. It’s serious business. One security lapse or a single gap in your defenses can leave your business vulnerable to any number of attacks. It’s our job to make sure that doesn’t happen. For example, here's how we’re working to stop DDoS attacks in their tracks.

We often work with clients who are well-versed on their IT security measures. They know their stuff but they’re also aware of their limitations and any gaps in their IT team’s knowledge, skills or experience.

Our comprehensive suite of IT security services protects our clients from both internal and external threats. It’s our goal to eliminate vulnerabilities and keep your critical data safe and secure.

But we know that’s not enough. Our clients tend to be the types that take charge and do whatever they can to set their businesses up for success. Understanding the full-spectrum of your IT security is an essential step in safeguarding your business.

Is Your Business Vulnerable?

Short answer: yes.

Your business is vulnerable to attacks. Between malware, DDoS attacks, phishing scams and more, there’s a lot bad stuff out there. The reality of the IT landscape is that it is constantly changing. Every business is vulnerable to a wide variety of internal and external cyber attacks. And these attacks are evolving every single day.

Don’t panic just yet.

We know this sounds incredibly scary—and we know that you want to do everything within your power to protect your business, your data and your customers. That’s exactly what we want, too. With full-spectrum IT security precautions in place, you can rest assured that your business is prepared in the event of a cyber attack.

Elements of Full-Spectrum IT Security

Full-spectrum security runs deeper than virus scans and password changes. You likely have these precautions in place already and are looking to deepen your knowledge and better protect your business. Critical factors to consider include:

  • External and internal security 
    How do you control access to your IT infrastructure? Are you keeping current on unneeded or expired user accounts? A determined hacker could compromise your system from anywhere in the world with just a few minutes of coding if your security measures aren’t up to date.
  • Facility characteristics
    A robust, compartmentalized facility is designed to detect and prevent physical attacks. It keeps unauthorized persons separated from sensitive servers and drives. Where does your IT infrastructure live? Are you comfortable with the current state of your IT infrastructure?
  • Operational rigor
    Documented procedures and thorough trainings not only help ensure uptime and performance, they can greatly reduce the risk of compromise via social engineering. This attack vector is often overlooked, but that doesn’t mean that threats aren’t happening. They are. And we can prevent them.
  • NOC personnel and monitoring 24/7/365
    An attack could penetrate your system at any time, day or night. Do you have intrusion monitoring and security experts at hand to respond instantly? Every minute your system is compromised will cost you dearly. In fact, DDoS attacks alone can cost your business $40,000 per hour. It’s not worth the risk.
