Network Security

If you’re like most companies, you likely don’t have the time or resources to continually investigate security gaps in your network infrastructure and mobile devices or to check whether your current security measures provide the protection you need.

The first step towards protecting your network is to understand that the threat is real, it’s constantly evolving, and, unfortunately, the measures you have in place to address current threats probably aren’t strong enough to prevent the next wave of attacks.

“Security software vendor Symantec recently commissioned Applied Research to survey more than 2,100 small businesses. The survey found that the majority were still plagued by cyberattacks, lost devices and poor backup and recovery processes. “ (Chickowski, Ericka. 2010. How Secure Are You? Entrepreneur Magazine, October, 46.)

In this report, Symantec determined that:

  • 74 % of SMBs were affected by cyberattacks in the past 12 months.
  • The average annual cost of these attacks was $188,242.
  • 42% of SMBs have lost confidential or private data in the past 12 months.
  • 62% of SMBs lost at least one mobile device in the past 12 months.
  • 100% of these businesses said at least some of their lost devices had no password protection (Chickowski 2010).
