Businesses of all sizes are under attack as the rate of cyber crime continues to escalate. Attacks are becoming increasingly malicious and destructive. Is your network security prepared to withstand this growing threat?
No Business Network is Safe
Even the largest businesses are under threat. Anyone’s digital data files at risk can be hacked. Even the world’s largest businesses are tightening security measures as they face ever more sophisticated threats from cyber criminals.
Hackers Don’t Need World-Class Skills, They Only Need to be Better Than Your Network’s Security
Many of today’s hackers aren’t elite programmers. Some wannabe hackers simply buy black market hacking software. This isn’t the up to the level of software used by the world’s best hackers, but it’s good enough to penetrate the inadequate network security many businesses rely on.
Small businesses are the primary target for most hackers. These cyber thieves are like thugs who don’t attempt to get a big payout by robbing a bank, but instead knock down an old person on the street to steal their wallet.
