For today’s businesses, having a cyber-attack is one of the worst things to cripple a business. It can result in lower customer satisfaction, trust issues between customer and company, and sensitive data and IP being used for nefarious purposes.
Instituting a strong perimeter defense on the IT level is just one link in the chain. To really get the best protection, businesses should implement an EPP (Endpoint Protection Platform) to fill in all of the security gaps that could be exposed by a hacker. These should be used in tandem with EDR’s (Endpoint Detection and Response), MSSP’s (Managed Security Service Provider), and SOC’s (Security Operations Center).
Typically, the larger the corporation, the more tools that are usually used in this fight. Smaller organizations should take heed and apply these same principles to provide the best defense against cyber-attacks.
