Seems like every month we learn about security breaches with the big box retailers and mega companies. Can you imagine what else is going on that we don’t hear about? Today’s advanced attacks don’t discriminate between large and small companies. They evade best-of-breed security products, often going undetected for long periods of time. Odds are your network has already been breached and you don’t even know it.

Typically, organizations have deployed a variety of discrete point solutions in an effort to fortify their defenses. However, these solutions fail to effectively share and correlate data. Signature-based solutions can only protect you from 2% of known exploits. Even advanced security solutions are frequently circumvented by persistent threats. Inevitably, the result is large volumes of alerts that quickly overwhelm IT teams. Bottom line, a perimeter-focused security strategy simply can’t keep up. Besides, your employees walk right past your perimeter everyday and connect directly to your network with personal laptops, tablets and mobile devices.

Firewall and Network Monitoring

All businesses require secure operations in order to be successful and protect their sensitive information. Devising a comprehensive strategy to cover all of your security demands has never been more important, and should include a number of layered security services. Security is the culmination of a number of pieces working together to collectively create a powerful defense against cyber threats.

These security pieces include physical security, network protection, secure multi-tenant architecture, per-tenant firewalls, host-based firewalls, anti-virus, and backup. In order to maintain the most secure environment possible, most businesses choose to trust the management of a managed security provider.
