Is your business protected from the rapid growth of web-based security threats?

October 10 2013

Are your business IT users safe and is your business protected from the rapid growth of web-based security threats?

According to IT Threat Evolution: Q2 2013 over 90% of system attacks come from malicious URLs…

Without a good level of protection, it’s all too easy for business IT users to stray onto websites, which might appear safe, but can actually deliver a malicious payload to their computer. Besides the time and cost of cleaning up viruses and the loss of productivity from malware slowing down systems, there are bigger risks to consider. When passwords are stolen through a phishing attack, there can be devastating results for a business, including reputation damage, data breach and loss of intellectual property.

So it is essential to keep users safe and to protect your business from this fast-growing area of web-based security threats. Yet with an ever-mobile, non-centralised workforce this is not as straightforward as it sounds…

So how can a busy IT Administrator provide an affordable, effective means of web protection that they don’t need to constantly stay on top of?
