Your Firewall Can Put Your Network at Risk
Is your firewall up to date? When was it last updated? If you don’t know, your network may be exposed to new threats that evolve and get more diabolical with each passing day.
CNN Money reported that nearly half of all cyber attacks happen to small businesses because they are easy prey — they don’t put real security measures in place.
5 Reasons to Toss Your Firewall and Switch to Enforce Managed Security
YOU ARE NOT TOO SMALL TO BE A TARGET TO HACKERS
Inc Magazine says cyber attacks on small businesses rose 300% in one year. Your financial data, customer lists, credit card information, and employee data (i.e. social security numbers) are exactly what the bad guys are after.
Enforce Managed Security specializes in protecting small businesses from a broad range of threats.
FIREWALLS NEED UPDATES
Vendors may release dozens of updates each year and your firewall becomes compromised the minute an update is available and not applied. Your current firewall probably needs manual updates. Thant means someone must regularly check for updates, decide if they should be applied, then go through the update process. What about the exposure time between identified vulnerabilities and the manual application of the update? Care to wager on when your firewall was last updated?
Enforce Managed Security utilizes a DAILY automatic update process that avoids downtime. You don’t have to rely on someone to efficiently check for updates and apply them.
YOU NEED COMPREHENSIVE WEB FILTERING
You know all of those sites that people aren’t supposed to be visiting while at work? Those are the very sites that can unleash viruses and malware in to your network. Not only that, but by allowing your employees unlimited Internet access for non-work purposes, you lose employee productivity, bandwidth, and can even be at risk for sexual harassment suits. Depending on what report you read, employees spend between one and three hours per day at work surfing the web for personal reasons.
Enforce Managed Security enables you to block the sites that make your business vulnerable and people unproductive.
YOU NEED QUALITY OF SERVICE FEATURES
QoS is like a traffic light – directing what traffic gets to proceed and what needs to wait. More and more network services are delivered over precious Internet bandwidth, so it’s increasingly important to have QoS in place. Without it, an important customer call over your Voice-over-IP phone can get ‘choppy’ because bandwidth is being used up for other things (see Reason 3).
With Enforce Managed Security, we can prioritize critical traffic to make sure things like VoIP phones and other important services are not robbed of network bandwidth by non-essential traffic.
