Seamless Solutions Layered Security Approach

Layered Approach to Managed Security 

Cybercrime is on the rise; and it is costing businesses millions of dollars in lost productivity, system rebuild time, breach of confidential records, theft and damage to reputation. Make no mistake about it – Cybercrime is big business and getting bigger every day as traditional criminal organizations realize that there is a lot of money to be made when compared to traditional crime. As a result, these organizations are paying top dollar for talented cybercriminals who aspire to make a name for themselves by unleashing malware on unprotected networks.

Cybercrime is indiscriminate based upon size or organization type. If you have something of value then you are a potential target. Every week Seamless Solutions’ Managed Security Team receives new reports of damaging malware attacks that have compromised networks or infected a considerable number of desktops, laptops or mobile devices. Thousands of new malware variants surface daily, and their eradication has become increasingly difficult.

Gone are the days when a firewall and anti-virus software were enough to thwart malicious attacks.  Not only have cybercriminals become more sophisticated, the rise in mobile device use, cloud services and social media has also dramatically increased avenues attackers are utilizing.  As a result, the corporate network is increasingly being exposed to malware, Trojans, advanced persistent threats, fake anti-virus software, and other attacks that have the potential to lead to a data breach, network disruption, compromise of sensitive data, and/or theft.

Let’s be clear – cybercrime is a clear and present threat for all organizations today.  PwC’s 2020 Global Digital Trust Insights showed that more than 66% of organizations are growing their cyber security budgets.  In a Sophos State of Ransomware report it was found only 4% of businesses that pay ransoms receive all of their stolen data back. 

To protect their network from cybercriminals, Seamless Solutions’ Managed Security Team is urging clients to make their networks less attractive to attackers by implementing a layered approach to security. With a layered approach to security organizations take a systematic, preventative approach to address each of the primary security threats to your computer network.  It’s crucial that businesses utilize a layered approach that covers everything from user training to security monitoring and endpoint protection products.
