In this day and age, there is more to the cybersecurity “basics” than antivirus software and a strong firewall. Have you trained your employees?
With so many access points, how can business owners hope to keep their network safe from hackers, viruses and other unintentional security breaches?
A firewall is a device that acts like a security cop, watching over your computer network to detect unauthorized access and activity.
Do you connect to the office network or VPN (Virtual Private Network) to get some work done in the evenings, on the weekends or when on the road? For many, the answer is yes.
A firewall looks at all internet traffic attempting to pass through to make sure it’s legitimate, that it’s not a virus and that it was requested from an in-network device; a router does not.
Once the foundation is in place, the next most important thing you can do is create an Acceptable Use Policy and train your employees on how to use company devices and other security protocols
A firewall is a device that acts like a security cop watching over your computer network to detect unauthorized access and activity — and EVERY business and individual needs one.
Unlike a router, a firewall actually looks at all internet traffic passing through it to make sure it’s legitimate, not a virus, and was requested from a computer inside.
In this day and age, there is more to the security “basics” than a solid firewall. A single crack in your armor can open the door for network attacks.
Your firewall needs to be upgraded and patched on a continual and consistent basis. Also, security policies and configurations need to be set.
