Hackers are becoming increasingly sophisticated and efficient. They use tricks to get past your preventive security solutions (like antivirus software and firewalls) to gain a “foothold” in your network. A hacker can hang out in your network for days, months, and even years without being detected. But enough is enough. It’s time to take a stand against cybercriminals.
To keep cybercriminals out, your business needs to take a “stacked” approach to cybersecurity. As a first step, you’ll need to ensure you have these solutions: business-grade antivirus software, multi-factor authentication, an enterprise firewall with active security licenses, and antimalware software.
BUT, that’s just a start.
Hackers only need to find one small security gap to break into your network. That’s why you need to find out how hackers are entering your network; otherwise they will keep finding their way back in. That’s where Huntress comes in. Huntress is an Advanced Threat Detection tool. 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.
Advanced threat hunting scans your computers and networks for any vulnerabilities so security gaps can be closed immediately, before any damage is done. And if it finds anything malicious, it provides you with detailed steps for removal. By implementing all these tools in your business, you can stay ahead of hackers.
