4 Enterprise-Level Security Solutions in One Convenient Package

4 Enterprise-Level Security Solutions in One Convenient Package

How big a role does security play in your business’s network management? If it takes a secondary role more in favor of operations, you might want to reconsider why this is the case. After all, your organization’s critical assets--namely sensitive data like employee information, payment credentials, and usernames or passwords--all hold immense risk for exploitation from hackers. Therefore, even if you don’t fear a potential attack, you should at least consider it as a possibility.

To optimize security on your business’s network, we often recommend what’s called a Unified Threat Management (UTM) tool. This combines several of the most important enterprise-level security solutions into one package for maximum network protection. Here is what a UTM contains and why it’s important for your organization.

Firewalls

Firewalls are beneficial in that they keep threats out of your network in the first place, meaning that they don’t even have the opportunity to access your network and cause trouble for your business. Firewalls act as the virtual bouncers of your network, keeping dangerous traffic from entering while keeping threats in one place so that they can be thrown out or eliminated quickly.

Antivirus

An antivirus solution complements a firewall by eliminating threats that do manage to slip through the firewall’s grasp. An enterprise-level antivirus solution can identify and eliminate threats of all types; malware, viruses, trojans, and so much more. It’s a great way of mitigating risk for your organization by ensuring that you take quick action against any potential threats. The big difference between a centrally located antivirus such as this, compared with standard consumer-grade antivirus is that the updates and scans aren’t up to your end users, making the process seamless without interrupting productivity.

Spam Blocker

Spam isn’t just an annoying and problematic thing to find in your inbox, it can also be exceptionally dangerous. Hackers will often use spam to spread their malware, and advanced phishing schemes are used to collect credentials and steal sensitive information from unwary users. Enterprise-level spam blockers are used to prevent spam from even hitting the inbox, allowing no room for error on your users’ behalf. Of course, advanced threats often know how to dodge these blockers, so training for your employees is still ideal.

Content Filter

The Internet holds countless threats that can put your organization at risk, including malicious websites designed to harvest credentials, and downloadable attachments that can infect your network with ransomware before you know what hit it. The best way to keep users from accessing these dangerous sites, along with time-wasting websites that hold your business back from succeeding, is a content filter. You can block malicious online threats while keeping your employees from accessing social media (YouTube, Netflix, etc.) killing two birds with one stone.

Your organization can’t take any risks with its network security. To learn more about a Unified Threat Management solution, and to get a second opinion about the current state of your business’s network security, reach out to us at (800) 588-4430.
