Security On The Go
The way business is done has drastically changed since the beginning of 2020. Since the start of it all we have experienced work from home orders, new interfaces with unique challenges, and lastly an increase in the amount of cybersecurity threats. October is Cybersecurity awareness month and in light of that KMF Technology wants to give you three tips on how to keep your cyber interests safe without breaking the bank.
3 Pillars of Fortification
Network Security- We know what you’re thinking – obviously network security is critical in keeping your information out of the wrong hands, but oftentimes business owners see it as a given, and in some cases, a luxury. It’s more than just a firewall here and there. By implementing the correct cybersecurity plan you will be able to easily navigate your system while not overspending on hardware of software that is unnecessary. We recommend having multiple levels of antivirus protection and backup recovery, coupled with email filtering, to best protect yourself from unwanted guests prowling through your sensitive information. The best way to know that your system is performing the way it should is to hire an expert in IT Consulting to work with your current system and make any needed changes.
Server Virtualization- Some may not know what this is but it will definitely appeal to the business person in you. Why is that? Money of course. Having to buy more than one server can take up an incredible amount of physical space, and it can also be expensive. Sometimes these servers can cost thousands of dollars and let’s be honest – we would all rather have that money in our pockets! That’s why we believe server virtualization is a great tool to have in your virtual toolbox. By switching to a virtual server, it allows you to create multiple, discrete environments housed on a single server. The result? One piece of hardware performing as several. By doing this it can add greater agility to any system updates, meaning you can conduct business faster and more reliably.
Real Time Network Monitoring- Getting sick sucks. Not knowing you’re sick until it’s too late is even worse. What if you had a private nurse to follow you around to tell you you’re getting sick and then give you the remedy to heal yourself? That sounds awesome, right? Unfortunately that doesn’t exist yet but the same thing DOES exist for your computer. Introducing Real Time Network Monitoring. Real Time Network Monitoring takes your network’s vital signs and checks for any indiscrepancies. If it does sense a slowdown in your network it quickly alerts you and your IT specialist that there is a problem so it can be fixed quickly and with ease. This allows for greater worker productivity as well as fewer business interruptions, which in turn, makes you more money.
