There is a lot of talk about cyber security these days. Almost every business knows the importance of it and yet, not all businesses have the proper protection against cyber attacks. It’s important that every business has cyber security protections, but also has the right cyber security protections.
The first thing to realize is that there are several cyber security solutions and depending on your type of business, you may need one, multiple or all of them to protect you and your customers.
Here are some of the most common cyber security solutions:
Encrypting data protects data so that even if it is stolen, it cannot be accessed.
Data Loss Prevention (DLP)
DLP solutions ensure that your data remains available and accurate, in the case of an emergency or loss of files. This is important for companies who heavily rely on their data for critical operations.
Firewalls protect a network from potentially malicious actions by controlling ingoing and outgoing connections.
These solutions scan computer systems looking for known threats. They protect computers against viruses and malware including trojans, spyware, adware or phising.
Intrusion Detection System
These systems monitor networks or systems for any potential hostile actions or malicious activity. This helps companies react more quickly to potential threats.
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation
DDoS attacks occur when multiple computer systems attack a target, like a server or website and users are unable to access the serve or website. They can be devastating to enterprise companies and can take down an entire network. DDoS mitigation solutions detect and mitigate DDoS attacks.
Risk and compliance management
There is an increasing number of regulations and risk management today around data and digital activities. Certain types of businesses need to protect themselves from being at risk of non-compliance by working with the right cybersecurity expert.
As you can see, there is a variety of security solutions and you may be wondering what cyber security solution is right for your business? It’s possible you will need more than one of the above listed (and potentially more) solutions to protect your business. The best thing to do is take a look at your business, your industry, the type of data you obtain and keep and the software and hardware that is critical to your business.
