Allianz, The German Insurer, says Cyber threat, IT Failure is a bigger threat than Fire, Theft, Flood.

In this article, we explain why you should be seriously considering hosted endpoint protection. Hackers and online criminals are not sophisticated people, they regard everybody as fair game. One of the most productive areas for them to attack is the SMB sector especially small-business.

​This is sadly highlighted by the number of small American towns which have been completely shut down by IT criminals and cybercrime gangs. Most of these were ransomware attacks, interestingly the cities and small towns that paid the ransom discovered that the fix provided by the criminals did not work. As a result, many of these cities and towns no longer have any computer systems supporting water, police, health, libraries, payroll. Millions invested by the city now completely wasted, left with no choice other than to completely rebuild their computer systems in a hurry at considerable expense.

The corporate sector and small business are the sweetest targets. Cybercriminals know that small companies will pay. Bots (automated intelligent machines) are constantly hunting the web and systems, looking for weak spots and to create new attacks; it is a war of attrition. Cybercrime is an equal opportunity crime, and any organisation is seen as easy prey for hackers. The need for a layered and responsive endpoint protection solution is greater than ever.

The Wall Street Journal, says that cybercrime is rising fast increasing each year and that most of the threat is completely avoidable as high as 95%. That includes investing in protection, improving procedures in the office and some staff training.

Endpoint Protection is the new thing

That's why endpoint protection is proving so popular with the SMB sector and smaller companies. Traditionally antivirus, malware protection, business interruption services were installed as a server-based security solution. The standard approach to IT cyber protection required your company to instal and manage your full security suite on a server, in many cases without any real skills in the area. A cloud-based managed solution is far more preferable, as the solution provider takes care of everything including mobile phones, laptops, and tablets to be completely protected and managed by your service provider. This speeds up deployment, automates updates for your malware protection which is critical for your business. And allows IT o concentrate n business improvement, not protecting the Server.

We're talking about your entire IT infrastructure supporting your business. This means Product development, Research, CRM & Sales development activities, ERP and Finance systems. Everything your organisation holds dear and you need to protect.

Cybercriminals lazy, feckless and don't care
