Go Better Together

Every organization is vulnerable to a cyber-attack no matter where your data is hosted.  Cyber-attacks are growing and becoming more frequent, and the hacking community is growing.  There is nothing you can do to get 100 percent protection.  Every organization has “holes” in their IT protection.  There are two elements key to maintaining your operational readiness against a cyber security threat:

  • Visibility – Being able to find, identify and see “into” all of the endpoints (devices) on your corporate network in real-time
  • Control – Assessing the situation and have the staff, skills, and tools to react and respond

Much has been written about threats and tools but the bottom line is to be able to detect something questionable is happening and then quickly remediate the problem.

At a minimum, you must have “essential” tools like virus, malware protection, intrusion protection and intrusion detection.

How vulnerable are you? Really?Synoptek Phishing Protection

Attacks can target; hardware, firmware, wearables, BYOD devices, Internet of Things and through API’s.  Attacks can target employee systems, cloud services, or direct to employees including malware, ransomware, and denial of services attacks.  Attacks could be just simple human error creating IT Security “holes.”

70% of enterprises will be attacked or incur some cyber security issues every year.  It is going to happen…. So get prepared.  Synoptek can help.  It makes sense to have your managed service provider also provide you IT security services on the devices they already manage.

IT Security now requires more resources, more skills

As sophisticated as IT breaches have become, some of the most practical solutions are quite simple.  However, these solutions require constant attention and monitoring of employees, devices, and IT systems.  The problem is companies have IT staff fixing IT infrastructure problems, end-user issues and working on internal projects.  Without an “eyes-on” approach by skilled IT security professionals, you are leaving your company vulnerable to IT security breaches.

To be protected (nothing offers 100% protection) you need dedicated IT security staff, or a Managed Service Provider like Synoptek, which has a dedicated security staff and the needed security protection tools. Synoptek provides security management for hundreds of clients.  Based on our operational experience we have found typical IT security weaknesses include:

  • Network endpointsSynoptek Malware Protection
  • Employees
  • Malware and virus attacks
  • Highly specialized attacks

Most companies that get breached aren’t aware it has happened.  The sophisticated attacker does not want you to know that they have accessed or are altering your data.  The median time to discover a breach is typically measured in months.  Should a breach occur, most organizations are embarrassed to have customers or law enforcement inform them of a violation.  Well-prepared companies have a breach response plan outlined and tested.

Let Synoptek Cloud Hosting and IT Security services provide you a complete solution to manage your IT infrastructure.
