Take control of your network security with a UTM.
Your business’ online environment is a prime target for countless threats that want to steal the data of businesses just like yours. Problems such as viruses, malware, and spyware consistently pose massive threats to not just your own network infrastructure, but to your budget as well. Sensitive information that’s stolen can crush your business under the weight of steep compliance fines, while also ruining your reputation as a trustworthy organization.
Therefore, it’s necessary to take immediate action to protect your business’s network. The only way to fight back against all of the threats that are out there is to incorporate world-class security solutions. This is why a Unified Threat Management (UTM) solution, that is designed to eliminate the majority of threats your business might face, is a must-have for any company looking to batten down the hatches.
The first line of defense for your organization’s network is its firewall. It acts as a bouncer, keeping out threats that attempt to infiltrate the network. A firewall is absolutely essential to maintain proper network security. Antivirus solutions, on the other hand, are designed to destroy malicious entities that currently reside within your network. A combination of the two can go a long way toward keeping your network free of potential threats.
The UTM solution utilizes these powerful tools to prevent threats from entering your network in the first place, while eliminating any malicious software that does manage to sneak through. Our antivirus and firewall solutions are continuously updated with the most recent threat definitions so you can keep even recently discovered issues from becoming a bigger problem.
Your organization receives spam every single day, and because of it your ability to stay productive and secure is under siege. Spam is a primary mode of transportation for viruses and malware, as well as phishing scams which attempt to coerce login credentials or other important information from your employees. In order to guarantee maximum security for your business, you need to block spam completely.
Studies show that there are significant threats at work both inside and outside of your network. A UTM integrates a powerful spam blocking solution that prevents spam from reaching your inbox in the first place. This cuts down time you have to spend weeding it out of your inbox, and eliminates the chance that your employees put your network at risk due to phishing attacks.
Viruses and malware aren’t just contracted from infected emails. You can receive them simply from visiting unsafe websites that are designed to spread these threats to visitors. Threats are often found on the types of websites that your employees shouldn’t be visiting anyway, like those that contain adult content. Ultimately, it’s in the best interest of your company to avoid visiting these sites, as they can waste time and have disastrous effects on your network security.
A UTM is capable of blocking access to certain sites on a per-user basis, effectively enabling you to block access to specific content for specific users that might be making a habit out of it. One real-world example of comprehensive content filtering is blocking social media for all of your staff but your marketing department, who might need to access Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube for outreach purposes.
It only takes one threat to expose your entire network infrastructure to the outside world. Neither you or your company can afford to allow this to happen. In order to ensure the further success of your business, we recommend that you reach out to Telesys Voice and Data for a network consultation.
