You Need to Know What Your Organizational Crown Jewels Are—And How to Protect Them

Hint: Your network, your systems, and your data.

  • Protecting your network and systems is the first step, and the one that’s the biggest security resource drain for most organizations. Continuously monitoring and correlating logs and events for potential threats can help you significantly reduce the time to detect security incidents.
  • Protecting your systems and applications from the sheer number of software vulnerabilities requires significant effort and expertise. Automating the analysis and update process can dramatically reduce the time your systems may be at risk.
  • Ultimately, security threats have a common objective—access to your data. Empowering your IT team with greater insights into user accounts, their permissions, and what resources they can access can help prevent risks associated with malicious insiders (and gives you the added benefit of reporting on data access for security audits and regulatory compliance).

Security Isn’t Just for the Big Guys Anymore

While access to technology has made it easier for smaller companies to scale and grow, it has also made it easier for bad actors to develop cyberthreats. In fact, SMBs are the targets of 58% of all cyberattacks. Security and compliance are areas that many smaller businesses lack expertise and are resource constrained. That’s where we come in.
