Your Network Infrastructure Needs to be Secured

Your Network Infrastructure Needs to be Secured

If your business isn’t protecting its technology infrastructure, you need to rethink your priorities immediately. After all, hackers aren’t going to wait for your business to secure itself. They will instead seize any easy opportunity to steal your organization’s sensitive data. There are countless threats out there that want to take advantage of your business, or at least see your sensitive data on-sale at the online black market. We’ll walk you through some of the most important factors regarding your organization’s security.

Patches and Software Updates
According to an article from NPR, a new type of cyberthreat from Russia is beginning to target small businesses in a greater capacity. Some of the devices at risk of compromise are those that you might not immediately think about, including routers, network switches, and firewalls, all for the express purpose of stealing information, spying on your infrastructure, and infiltrating your network at their convenience. Therefore, you need to take measures to ensure that even your minor devices are secured.

In this case, it’s best to implement patches and security updates from the device developers. It’s easy to forget about your router on this list, so be sure to keep up your maintenance and patching to ensure that no stone is left unturned.

Endpoint Security
If you need to support even minor devices to mitigate security risks, what does this say about your more advanced technology solutions like servers and desktops? What about mobile devices? It goes without saying that any devices accessing important data should be secured in some way, shape or form. In most cases, we’re referring to having a licensed antivirus and firewall on your computer.

The good news is that Triad IT can provide your business with the best kind of solution for this purpose: a Unified Threat Management (UTM) tool. What this allows you to do is implement a number of enterprise-level solutions all at once, including a firewall, antivirus, spam protection, and content filtering.

Follow Best Practices
Ultimately, the success of your business’ security is going to boil down to whether or not your organization is following network security best practices. You can implement the most powerful solutions, but they mean nothing if your users aren’t following the right practices. It’s your responsibility to make sure that your employees have the right security mindset--these include password best practices, securing important data on a user level, and sharing information sparingly.
