With the internet growing its user base every day, the number of advanced threats continues to rise in numbers too. In a world where businesses are driven by technology, it’s even more important to be aware of what tactics you can use to stay protected around the clock.
Embrace the power of continuous EDR monitoring. Endpoint detection and response is a cybersecurity technology that continuously monitors and responds to any advanced threats on your computer system. This critical piece of security technology is designed to investigate the threat from start to finish. You will know how the threat happened, how it got onto your computer, where has it been, what is it doing now, and how to stop it.
With the right knowledge and abilities at your fingertips, you could be well on your way to having one of the most secure businesses in the world.
Malware in the Modern World
As many as 100,000,000 ads have been served up via users of Windows 10, as reported by Forbes in this cybersecurity article on one of today’s biggest threats. They advertised things such as fake security software to technical support service scams.
Could you imagine if one (or even a handful) of your employees fell victim to these shady marketing antics? Even worse, what would happen if they bit on an app that was supposed to do one thing, but ended up leaking sensitive company data instead? The results could be detrimental.
Business New Daily highlighted the risks that small businesses today have when it comes to cybersecurity. Below are some of the tips that are given to small business owners in order to harden one’s infrastructure.
- Always update your software to prevent threats.
By having all company computers and devices interlinked, you can ensure all your employees always stay updated. Updates can be automatically installed while you also have a bird’s eye view of what versions and applications employees are currently running
- Backup your data to mitigate the chance of losing data.
You’ll often find this referred to as backing up to the cloud. This allows you to take all company data, files, and applications and store them on an off-site server. In the event of loss, companies can now backup from the latest file. It can also help rollback updates in case they cause other technological problems.
- Invest in cyber insurance, to eliminate unnecessary losses.
Cyber Liability Insurance Coverage, also referred to as CSLIC, is just like flood and fire insurance but more tailored to the digital age. Just like with anything else, there’s always a chance that security systems can be breached. In order to prevent liability or cause financial loss and protect the future of your brand, this will ensure that the company won’t be held responsible, instead, the provider minimizes losses.
Implement EDR Technology
When you want to turn things up in terms of corporate security, just embrace EDR technology to get the job done right the first time. Monitor your employees’ computers for threats remotely. Then know when extra tactics must be used to eliminate the risk of large computer breaches and respond immediately as things break out to minimize the chances of a catastrophe getting any bigger.
Adequate endpoint detection and response can be easily implemented. Continuous EDR monitoring has helped to save a lot of businesses. While many others have folded due to the damage that malware, ransomware, and many other computer security breaches have caused them.
