Why Network Security for Business Is Crucial

Why Network Security for Business Is Crucial

Do you tend to ignore your company’s IT services as long as everything works as it should? You aren’t alone; many businesses have limited resources to devote to full-time IT employees. You focus the resources that you have on doing what’s necessary to keep your business running.

It’s time to change your mindset about network security for business. Maintaining a secure network can prevent enormous potential losses due to network downtime or stolen data — and with managed IT services, maintaining a secure network doesn’t cost as much as you might think.

The Threats That Modern Businesses Face

Network security for small businesses is crucial because your company faces more threats online now than ever before. Falling victim to any of these threats could potentially cost your company thousands — even millions — of dollars.

  • Spyware: Intercepts a user’s computer activities or keystrokes and sends them to a third party
  • Ransomware: Encrypts and denies access to the files on a computer until the victim pays a ransom to unlock the files
  • Phishing Attacks: Steal passwords by luring victims to fake versions of banking, social networking and other websites
  • Denial of Service Attacks: Render a website inaccessible by overwhelming it with fake user activity from IP addresses around the world
