IT security is composed of cybersecurity strategies that prevent unauthorized access to business assets including computers, networks, and data. It maintains and protects the integrity and confidentiality of sensitive information by blocking the access of sophisticated hackers.
Cybercriminals are getting smarter every day, and unless you have your finger on the pulse of current hacking threats, you are leaving yourself exposed. Your in-house IT staff are busy enough. True IT security takes a high level of expertise and constant vigilance.
IT security prevents malicious threats, thwarting the security breaches that can have a huge impact on your organization
New threats are created every day and can come in different forms. Malware, or malicious software, is a common threat that can come in variations such as ransomware, spyware, and viruses. A data breach can cost many thousands and ruin your brand reputation. This means you need comprehensive protection, including:
- Network security that prevents bad actors and unauthorized users from entering your network.
- Endpoint security that protects your equipment at the device level, including phones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers.
- Cloud security secures software-as-a-service applications and the public cloud.
- Application security through the application of recommended updates.
