The Need for Network Security in Colorado
Did you know that Colorado alone has experienced nearly 200 IT security breaches in the last ten years, affecting well over 5 million individuals throughout the state? No industry or business is immune to cyber hacks. Small companies, multinational corporations, educational institutions, municipalities, hospitals, and even government organizations have all been successfully targeted by malicious third parties via phishing, ransomware, malware, and other types of attacks.
Thankfully, you don’t have to rely on your expertise, the assistance of a single IT expert, or even a whole IT department to keep your business safe from breaches. Outsourced IT providers like Elevate or other Managed Services Providers offer network security in Denver and greater Colorado that includes a plethora of IT cybersecurity tools and services to deter would-be hackers from gaining access to your valuable data.
How to Avoid the Big Breach
Our IT team offers network monitoring to supervise IT activity 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We’re continually on the lookout for suspicious activity and vulnerabilities that would put you at risk of a breach. Additionally, our IT monitoring team regularly updates your operating systems and software programs to prevent hackers from using outdated programs to gain access to your systems.
Firewalls (+ Perimeter Cybersecurity)
Firewalls and another perimeter IT security tools stop outside parties from gaining entrance into your IT network. Elevate uses next-generation firewall programs and top-tier antivirus/anti-malware programs to detect and eliminate malware that attempts to gain a foothold on your devices.
A growing number of companies work with third-party contractors and/or allow their employees to work remotely. While there are advantages to such arrangements, they also come with cybersecurity risks. We offer endpoint security to ensure that only authorized mobile devices and computers can access your network from outside your office. Furthermore, we provide encryption services to ensure that files moved or copied to and from your cloud storage services are always secure.
Incident Response Planning
Even the best cybersecurity in the state can’t guarantee that hackers will never breach your company. We take full accountability of your network security, and that’s why having an incident response plan to deal with such occurrences is an absolute must.
As an example, if a ransomware attack hits you, you’ll need up-to-date back-ups so you can wipe your hard drives and start anew. If a breach gains access to your data, you’ll need to locate the malware that caused the leak and eliminate it. There are also specific state of Colorado laws regarding informing your clients and state officials about the breach.
No matter the case, our team can help you put together an incident response plan that is customized to meet your exact needs and industry requirements. What’s more, we will implement the plan for you to get your systems up and running as quickly, easily, and efficiently as possible.
