Comprehensive Security is a multi-layered approach. Years ago, a firewall and anti-virus were all most organizations needed to be secure. Then spyware protection was required to be safe against emerging threats. Today, as attacks become more sophisticated, there is a need for some kind of intrusion prevention to protect against unknown threats. Next year, a new technology will be available to address current security vulnerabilities. If all this seems mind boggling, donít worry, youíre not alone.
Most companies donít have a full time IT person to keep on top of all the new security threats and
associated emerging security products to keep your network safe.
It only makes sense to consult the services of a trusted business advisor to maintain effective network security in your organization.
The appropriate layers of protection will minimize:
