Protect Your Reputation with Solid Network Security

Protect Your Reputation with Solid Network Security

Your organization needs to take network security as seriously as possible. While it might seem tempting to just implement security solutions and hide behind them thinking you’re safe, it’s much more important that you invest time and consideration into your organization’s culture. We’ll walk you through how you can minimize threats to your network, as well as provide a primer for what to expect from comprehensive enterprise network security solutions.

What’s At Stake?
What would happen to your business if an employee accidentally exposed your network to entry from unauthorized entities? Even sensitive documents could be stolen and sold on the black market. In particular, personally identifiable information fetches a handsome price. Furthermore, your business has to deal with the fallout that comes from suffering a data breach, which can be a considerable issue to surmount. With fines and blows to your reputation, there is a good chance your business could be put down for good.

Business-Minded Security Solutions
The most common security measures for businesses are enterprise-grade, meaning that they are quite powerful while remaining accessible to businesses, depending on the service provider. In particular, you’ll want to focus on implementing the following: Unified Threat Management, Virtual Private Networks, and Mobile Device Management. These are all services that provide security while also providing value in your investment. An optimized security plan will take all of these into consideration:

  • Unified Threat Management: A UTM solution is what you get when you put together four enterprise-level solutions into one tool. A UTM includes a firewall, antivirus, spam blocker, and content filter. Proper implementation of a UTM can help you keep threats in check both before they enter your network and after they have taken hold.
  • Virtual Private Network: A VPN provides a critical connection to data on your in-house network while out of the office. Through an encrypted network, you can securely access important information without the threat of onlookers stealing data while it’s moving from point A to point B.
  • Mobile Device Management: Mobile devices have infiltrated the workplace in many different forms, be it the wearable smartwatch or the prevalent smartphone. These devices put your data at risk every time they access your network. Mobile device management is a way to prevent damage in the event a device is lost, stolen, or compromised. With measures like user access control, remote wiping, and whitelisting/blacklisting applications, you’ll have enough control to keep your devices (and their data) in the right hands.

It’s one thing to talk about implementing security solutions, but another entirely to do so. HUB Technology Solutions can help you get all the details right so you don’t have to worry about it in the future. To learn more, reach out to us at 204-772-8822 or 1-833-847-0725.
