You wake up in the morning, grab a cup of coffee and sit down at your computer. You go to check you emails, but when you click on an email from a client, NOTHING happens. You click on another, but the same thing happens. Like anybody, you start to PANIC. You’ve been hit with Ransomware, and your business and confidential data are now encrypted. You can either: pay the ransom, lose your data forever, or restore from your backups – IF you have effective, up-to-date backups.
Scary right? This happens everyday and it can happen to anyone – including you!
That’s why its important that your business has cyber security protection tools. This includes business-grade antivirus software, multi-factor authentication, an enterprise firewall with active security licenses, anti-spyware software, and so forth.
Most of the time you never know about a vulnerability until a problem occurs. Cybercriminals are continuously waiting to find a security hole in your network, so that they can break in, and steal your data. Using the cyber security tools mentioned above is certainly a good start. These tools can help you find and remove viruses and infections from your computers, BUT they aren’t flawless. Plus, many of these tools are very good at identifying and removing infections, but not very good at identifying the source of an infection.
That’s why you need to find the hackers entry point. Even if you remove the viruses and malware, the security gap in your network will allow them to keep coming back. That’s where Huntress comes in. Unlike traditional security tools, Huntress is an Advanced Threat Detection tools. Its job is to hunt for “footholds” that hackers use to gain access to your computers. It inspects shady email attachments, unpatched vulnerabilities, malicious website content, corrupted USB drives, and a whole lot more.
The best part – it let’s you stay ahead of cyber criminals. If a threat is detected, your IT provider is notified immediately. Not only does it identify the foothold, Huntress also provides a report with detailed instructions outlining how to fill the gap in your security.
Advanced threat detection gives you an early warning about the vulnerabilities in your network and prevents cyber security incidents from happening in the first place. This tool protects your business against cyber attacks, downtime, lost productivity, and data loss. Without it, your business is more susceptible to the most debilitating cyber attacks.
