If there’s one thing that we can all agree, it’s that hackers are pests. They sneak into your house unannounced and uninvited. They cause a lot of nuisance. And you would do just about anything to get rid of them. Just like rats, or cockroaches, or ants, hackers get into your “house” (company network), by finding a small opening, and squeezing through. They analyze your business, find a security hole, and boom, they’re in.
Now, if you had a pest issue at home, you would clean your house, set up traps, and call an exterminator to get everything under control. More importantly, you’d find the pests entry point, to eliminate it for good. So, why should you approach your business network any differently?
To keep hackers out of your network, it’s critical that you use multi-factor authentication, business-grade antivirus software, and an advanced firewall. But the truth is, it’s still not enough. A hacker only needs a single-vulnerability to get into your network. That’s why it’s important to find the hackers entry point and close it, otherwise they’ll just keep coming back.
That’s why you need an Advanced Threat Detection tool like Huntress. Huntress complements your current security stack. It searches for footholds that hackers and cyber criminals use to stay in your network undetected. Huntress inspects shady email attachments, unpatched vulnerabilities, malicious website content, corrupted USB drives, and a whole lot more. When Huntress finds a foothold, a notification is sent to your IT provider along with detailed instructions for closing the security gap.
By using Huntress, you get ahead of the game. Huntress prevent threats from occurring in the first place – reducing downtime, data loss, and increasing your productivity.
