Computer security, cybersecurity, or information technology security (IT security) is the protection of your computer systems and networks from information disclosure, theft of or damage to hardware, software, or electronic data, as well as from the disruption or misdirection of the services they provide.
How CommWest Helps You with Cybersecurity
We know security is vital to your business.
That is why we already have you covered with traditional security safeguards like firewalls, anti-virus, and anti-malware. In addition, protect your network with internal cybersecurity, such as monitoring, vulnerability scanning, and email filtering.
The goal of AaaS (Anti-Virus) is prevention. Anti-virus software is intended to detect a threat to your computer and remove it before it causes damage to your network and sensitive information.
Monitoring includes services for your computer, network system, and servers. As well as 24/7 support for hardware issues, viruses, updates, patch management and overall performance to certify your computer network is working efficiently and securely.
3. Vulnerability Scanning
Network vulnerability scanning is critical in safeguarding your network(s). By mimicking everything the bad guys are trying to do, the scan alerts you to the risks it finds.
The process involves frequent and consistent scanning, both external and internal:
- External – from outside to check your network’s firewall and other ‘perimeter’ defenses
- Internal – tests devices on your network (servers, workstations, laptops, mobile devices, printers, network phones)
Vulnerability management adds another layer of security to protect the trove of personally identifiable information (PII) about your customers and employees. Are you doing EVERYTHING you can to keep cybercriminals out?
Email filtering will process your emails according to specified criteria, applying anti-spam and additional techniques to protect your business information and employees.
By preventing harmful and unnecessary emails from reaching the inbox, your employees can focus on their work instead of worrying if an email is legitimate or malicious. Of course, email filtering does not eliminate the need for employee training and due diligence, but it provides an added safeguard.
One and done.
There are many avenues for cybercriminals to access your critical systems and sensitive information. That is why you need to protect your business with a more robust solution that works in tandem. For example, anti-virus, monitoring, and email filtering.
