You Can’t Take Your Network’s Security for Granted

Posted: November 24, 2021

It’s easy to see the headlines and think that a major data breach cannot happen to your business, but this is a dangerous mindset to hold. If you aren’t taking cybersecurity seriously these days, then you’re making a huge mistake. You need to implement security measures now before it’s too late.

The specific security measures your organization should implement will vary, but there are a couple of staples that all companies should consider. Here are a few of them.

Unified Threat Management

A UTM is a device that provides some of the best security solutions out there, all in one appliance. A UTM includes a firewall, antivirus, spam blocker, and content filter, all of which are extraordinarily helpful when keeping out the majority of threats.

Multi-Factor Authentication

When it comes to securing your accounts and network access, you should turn to multi-factor authentication. By using multiple measures of authentication to keep hackers out of your accounts, such as biometrics or a secondary device, you can dramatically improve security. A best practice is to use at least two of the three methods of securing an account: something you have, something you know, and something you are.

Password Management

Complex passwords are hard to remember, but they don’t need to be. Password management makes it easy for the average user to remember complex passwords by creating a secure vault that only calls the necessary passwords. It’s certainly no substitute for multi-factor authentication, but it’s a remarkable tool in its own right.
