4 Cybersecurity Tools You Need to Know About

4 Cybersecurity Tools You Need to Know About

It may be an understatement to say that business has been difficult thus far in 2020. With all that is going on, nobody should have to deal with cybercrime. Unfortunately, it remains a major consideration for every IT administrator and business owner. With complex solutions being developed to help ward off these cyberthreats, strategies are changing. Today, we thought we’d take a look at four security tools your business should consider to help keep these scammers out of your network. 

#1 - Network Monitoring

The basic strategy of monitoring anything is adopted as a risk mitigation technique. The more actively you keep on top of any situation, the less you are likely to be surprised. In 2020, cyberattacks are mostly deployed clandestinely and the more you know about your network and infrastructure, the more likely they will remain in tip-top shape and free from outside threats. 

#2 - Endpoint Management

For many businesses, the endpoints have changed over the past decade. Once limited to workstations, today there are a litany of devices from mobile phones to unsecured Internet of Things devices that can be a way into your business’ network. With COVID-19 moving a lot of businesses’ operations offsite, and without a lot of time to deploy the security demanded from this situation, a lot of businesses are finding that there are far more endpoints than they once thought. Secure your endpoints, and you’ll find your organization’s cybersecurity will be stronger.

#3 - Security Training

There are dozens of security tools out there that are designed to keep nefarious and malicious code off of your network and infrastructure, but they literally do no good if someone on your team allows those malicious entities access. It is extremely important that your staff understands their role in your organization’s cybersecurity strategy. That is, they are on the front lines of a situation that may just cause a lot of harm to the business if they aren’t vigilant. 

#4 - Threat Detection

With all the things you are doing to help you keep scammers out of your network, if/when something finally does get it, you have to know it, and have a strategy to eliminate it. Some companies that spend millions of dollars on security are taken down by a single piece of code that executes ransomware. It’s as dangerous as that. With millions of threats being thrown your business’ way each year, there’s no chance you stop them all. Threat detection and remediation will make all the other effort worthwhile.
