Protect Your Network with Cabling & Server Support
Security is in high demand these days. There are reports almost every week about a breach of some kind, whether it’s personal photos, financial information, and even medical records. As our world becomes more connected, the threat of cyber-crime grows exponentially.
It’s one thing to detect a security breach and an entirely different thing to prevent them from occurring.
Basic encryption is like locking your home’s doors. Cyber criminals are always on the lookout for new ways to break in and steal the data they want. And just like a burglar could break in through the window of a locked house, a cyber criminal will look for another way around basic security.
Secure your private records with a powerful firewall. Firewalls actively repel cyber attacks on a network or server. These attacks could come from ransomware, DDoS attacks, and malware.
These viruses often encrypt every file on your computer, then force you to pay a hefty sum, often in crypto-currency, to receive a key to unlock the files. In a lot of cases, even if you pay the thieves, there’s no guarantee they’ll actually give you the key.
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks flood a server with thousands or millions of requests, overloading it and causing it to crash. Eventually, you’ll be able to recover the server and continue on as normal, but any outage of a website or intranet costs money in lost revenue.
Other malware can run a gamut of spreading viruses, redirecting website requests, spying on browsing history or keypad inputs, and many other things. Some can be relatively harmless, while others can be disastrous.
