4 Tools Any Business Can Use to Improve Security
Network security is not the easiest thing to implement for your business, and you definitely need someone trained in this topic to be the one behind the wheel. Thankfully, the correct solutions can make this much easier to pull off. Here are some of the best and most important security solutions you should be considering for your organization.
Unified Threat Management
You can think of a UTM as an all-encompassing security solution that includes several powerful features, like a content filter, spam blocker, antivirus, firewall, and so on. It’s perfect to keep threats out of your infrastructure, and it only takes one centralized tool to make it happen. No business who wants to take network security seriously should skip out on a UTM.
Mobile Device Management
The amount of folks still working remotely or in a hybrid setting means that mobile device management is more important than ever. Mobile device management tools can be used to keep close tabs on any mobile devices that have access to your company’s data, including those owned by employees.
Permissions, Access Control, and Monitoring
Understanding how your organization delegates permissions and access control for certain information, as well as monitoring that access, is crucial to keeping your assets secure. The general best practice is that your team should only have access to data that is specifically pertinent to their specific or individual roles within your business, granting access only when it’s needed. The fewer people who can access data, the fewer opportunities for it to be compromised.
Virtual Private Networks
When you use a VPN, you create an encrypted tunnel that your data is transferred through when it connects to your network. Basically, any onlookers won’t be able to see what is going to or from your device. It’s a great tool for any employee who spends any amount of time out of the office.
