20 Dec Hackers Targeting Small Businesses
Hackers Targeting Small Businesses
At SOS Support, your IT specialists in the Salt Lake City, UT area, we work a lot with small businesses, and our number one goal is providing you with the best possible IT Support. One of the top priorities in IT Support is SECURITY. As small business owners, you deal with plenty of important and confidential information. Most of you are dealing with confidential information such as info about patients or credit card info on a daily basis, and hackers are perfectly aware of this!
Over the past few years, hackers are shifting their efforts towards small businesses. A poll done by Computer World in 2011 showed that 90% of companies said that they had been breached by a hacker at least once in the past year….that right, 90%!! Also, a recent article by CNN states that “small businesses continue to be the most victimized of all companies” by hackers.
Small businesses are the perfect prey for hackers.
Large corporations might have more information in their systems, but they also have huge IT departments watching over their systems 24/7, making them nearly impossible to hack. Small businesses don’t have the money or resources to hire a 30 person staff to watch over their systems, making them a much easier target.
Here at SOS Support we are aware of this and always working to protect your important information, and we know how to give you the security needed to stop hackers.
The #1 option that we have and that we recommend for EVERY small business is an incredible all-in-one security suite by Dell called the SonicWALL. It’s a managed firewall with Gateway Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Intrusion Prevention and Application Intelligence and Control Service, Content Filtering Service and 24×7 Support.
What does all that mean?
It means that we have your back! You no longer need a 30 person IT team to protect your business. With a managed firewall like the SonicWALL you can have around the clock protection for all of your systems and information, giving you all the protection you need from hackers around the world.
At SOS Support, we’ve already installed several of these and we couldn’t be happier! If you want more information on how to protect your small business, contact us ASAP and we’ll get you hooked up!
