Have You Implemented These Security Best Practices?

If your business hasn’t put protections in place for your technology infrastructure, that needs to be moved to the top of your to-do list, yesterday. It isn’t as though the increasing number of threats are going to avoid you until your network is prepared to deflect them. Therefore, you need to take action now. To help, we’ll review some of the most important security considerations to make for your organization.

Patching and Updating Software
A few weeks ago, National Public Radio shared a story that reported a new cyberthreat that infects network devices to extract numerous kinds of data, focused primarily on business targets. Whether it infects your router, network switches, or firewall, it can steal your data, peek into your infrastructure, and otherwise dive into your network. Even your minor devices could potentially cause a security issue and will need to be secured.

To accomplish this, make sure you apply any patches and security updates from the developers of your devices - including your router.

Endpoint Security
Now, as we said, even your minor devices can potentially cause security risks, so it is only natural that your servers, desktops, and other larger solutions can also be points of infiltration. Alternatively, so can the mobile devices that are brought in and out of the office on a regular basis. A good rule of thumb to follow is that any device that can access your critical data needs to have some kind of security put into place. This usually means that it needs to have a properly licensed firewall or antivirus installed.

You could also take the next step up and utilize a Unified Threat Management tool, commonly known as a UTM. This solution bundles the safeguards you need into one package, delivering firewall, antivirus, spam blocking, and content filtering.
