If you and your employees have been working from home without suffering a cyber-attack, you’re lucky. Hackers have doubled their efforts during COVID-19 as many of our employees are working from home and without the same security measures they enjoy when working in the office. These workers are low-hanging fruit for cyberthugs, because one hacked computer can easily lead to the next step: a breached network. That’s the last thing any business owner needs, and it’s why every business does need a Managed Service Provider (MSP).
Cybersecurity goes beyond, well beyond, simply installing Norton Antivirus or a similar defensive software package. To stay ahead of cyber attacks, businesses need a managed service provider (MSP) in their corner.
MSPs know cybersecurity cold, and can put multiple defenses in place. They continually update these defenses to keep your network protected against the many ways hackers attack. Here are some of those ways hackers attack:
Email can be an invaluable form of communication. It can also be a portal into our computers for hackers to install:
We are all used to ads popping up when we visit websites. These ads make it easy for cybercriminals to get us when we click.
Often, we don’t even realize we’re under attack!
The answer is to have a professional IT team in the form of a managed service provider helping you. An MSP, among other important duties, protects your and your employees’ computers and your business’ network.
The MSP can set up a host of cybersecurity defenses because that is exactly what’s needed, from antivirus, anti-ransomware software to firewalls, frequent updates, and a solid, trustworthy VPN for businesses, like Privatise Business VPN.
Your MSP does not have to be located near you, but they can be. To find an MSP, you can ask peers for recommendations or search online for yourself.
Hackers have many ways to attack. MSPs are your defenders.
Privatise Business VPN provides MSPs with an easy to deploy encryption and tunneling service to keep multiple business clients’ and their employees’ online activity protected.
