2020 was a year of massive change. Companies across the globe took a new approach, including a big move to the cloud and using virtual workflows for the first time.
However, this work-from-anywhere trend came with a price: Additional cybersecurity risk.
Cybercriminals raked in more than one trillion dollars globally in 2020, targeting businesses big and small.
Of those cybersecurity hacks, 28% of businesses successfully targeted in 2020 were in the “small business” category.
The bottom line is, no matter the size of your business, your company is at risk of a cyber attack.
The problem: Where will the next attack strike?
Your business process is made up of many layers that are supported by your IT environment. And with advanced cybercriminal tactics, each layer can be targeted individually. This includes everything from your internet use, network, employees, applications, and devices.
Simply deploying antivirus software, using a firewall, and regularly updating your operating system is no longer enough when it comes to successfully protecting your business.
Layered security is the next step in securing your mission-critical data and workflow. As an IT services company, we provide cost-effective IT security management, monitoring and maintenance that are proactive and comprehensive.
As Metis Technology deploys protective protocols across each layer of your IT environment, we ensure that every individual aspect of your IT use is considered, including the following categories:
● Internet layer: Securing your data traffic
● Network layer: Protecting against lateral attack
● People layer: Protecting identities and accounts plus employee training
● Application layer: Employing proper software management
● Device layer: Keeping individual machines from becoming a target
Why layered security?
With layered security, you can rest assured that your systems will receive regulatory compliance checks. You’ll also avoid risks posed by new technologies.
With the work landscape shifting and many companies moving to remote or hybrid environments, a layered security approach will enable teams to work safely, no matter their location.
Layered security also ensures that unplanned downtime is limited and that proprietary information and confidential client data are totally protected.
The business benefits of layered security
Using a layered security approach, you’ll be able to confidently and securely pursue organizational objectives. Additionally, zero-to-limited downtown will increase productivity.
Layered security will also ensure that your business is compliant with cybersecurity insurance mandates. You’ll receive faster responses to and resolutions of IT security incidents and granular IT security posture reporting to demonstrate compliance.
