30 Jan With the rapid increase of attacks, it is more critical than ever before to secure your company!
Your private and important data’s security is one of the most vital elements of maintaining a good business, as corruption or loss of this data may result in severe consequences and harm for your business or organisation. This can include, extreme ransomware, loss of money, and an inconstant reputation for your business if your data was altered and released. That is why it is so important and crucial to have a manageable and reliable security system, as it will help you avoid unnecessary damages to your business.
A company is hit with ransomware every 40 seconds.
In 2017, the number of attacks tripled from the previous year. In 2018, this statistic continues to grow, as cyber criminals know that companies value this important information.
Of course, nobody wants to pay the ransom because, as well as obviously compromising the company finances, it only encourages the cyber criminals to carry out more attacks like this in the future. But many do pay up because they want their critical data to be released. It’s worth mentioning, of course, that there is never any guarantee that data will be released once a ransom has been paid.
71% of companies targeted with ransomware are infected.
With the rapid increase of attacks, it is more critical than ever before to secure your company. Luckily, FSL Support has all the vital services that are needed to protect your computers, users and data.
At FSL Support, we provide both cloud-based and software based anti-spam solutions. With a range of packages to choose from, we have the perfect anti-spam solution for organisations of all sizes and sectors. We use anti-spam technology from Roaring Penguin, to provide the best possible email protection. This technology to stop all kinds of spam – fraud schemes, phishing attempts, ads, viruses and inappropriate content – before it even reaches your server.
Most businesses rely on email for a substantial proportion of their everyday communications. They, therefore, have greater potential for exposure to the harmful kind of junk email, compared with individuals sending emails in their personal lives.
Email spam, also known as junk email, is unsolicited messages sent in bulk by email. This many contain disguised links that appear to be for familiar websites but in fact lead to phishing web sites or sites that are hosting malware.
If malware gets onto one of the computers in your workplace, it can quickly spread across your entire IT system, causing significant damage, disruption and potential loss or theft of vital business data. Even if you don’t directly lose money, your revenues are likely to suffer due to the cost of dealing with a data breach and recovering from subsequent downtime and damage to your company reputation.
Antivirus software works by detecting malicious code such as viruses, spyware, ransomware, worms, Trojans etc., which presents a significant risk to our business IT systems and critical data. Once detected, antivirus software will block threats to stop them from causing any harm on your company devices.
The total cost of malware infection can run into many thousands of pounds. When you consider the combined impact of prolonged downtime, loss of business, reputation damage, loss of critical data and the cost of repairing the damage done, the total cost can be difficult to quantify. What is certain, is that it isn’t a risk worth taking. Antivirus software is relatively inexpensive, especially when compared to the cost of dealing with a data breach. If you want to protect your company finances from the devastating impact that malware can have, investment in a business-grade antivirus solution is a very good place to start.
Cyber security is a growing concern amongst businesses. Data breaches are becoming commonplace and it’s not just big corporations that are targeted. According to research by Symantec, published earlier this year, almost half of recorded cyber-attacks in 2015 were targeted at SMEs with under 250 employees. Smaller businesses tend to have much weaker cyber security defences than their larger counterparts, which is precisely why they are so often targeted by attackers. Whilst antivirus software is not a comprehensive solution to the issue of cyber security, it will go a long way towards protecting your business from many of the online threats faced today.
In a work place, many users can get distracted by the world of social media and lose track of their job. With web monitoring, administrators can create their own cloud key, restricting users from predefined categories such as gambling, pornography and social media. Not only will this allow your business to run with no distractions, but it also ensures that the risk of downloading a virus on your servers are even more limited. The results are immediate after a very easy and quick set up, allowing the workplace to become a safer environment with no distractions even sooner.
To manage larger organisations and business, the content filter can manage multiple locations all through one portal, enabling easy access to undertake your own personal and customisable policy for malware protection.
Not only will your employees be more focused, your computers will be less likely to become a victim of phishing or downloading viruses. When accompanied with Anti-spam and Anti-virus, these chances are even more significantly reduced, meaning that your chances of extreme ransomware, loss of money, and a inconstant reputation for your business if your data was altered and released are also, reduced. That is why it is so important and crucial to have a manageable and reliable security system, as it will help you avoid unnecessary damages to your business.
