Small and medium sized businesses are exposed to the same cyberthreats as everyone else is, and they need protection. But we get it – it’s not easy striking the right balance with your cyber defences; consumer cybersecurity products are insufficient, and yet enterprise solutions are too costly and complicated.
At best, an small and medium sized businesses might have an IT team including someone who is responsible for cybersecurity. But IT is a lot more than cybersecurity, and one person doing it all cannot devote much time to managing a heavy security solution. However, even that is a best-case scenario for small business IT security. According to our research, some businesses dedicate the role of security management to non-specialist internal staff — and some companies have no cyber security function at all.
In the age of cyber attacks ranging from everything from networks to USB sticks, it’s not an option to leave your business unprotected.
I’ve seen the news, but why is cyber security so important to my small business?
Businesses of all sizes can fall prey to a variety of malware and social engineering attacks such as phishing. Here are some of the business assets that it’s wise to protect when thinking about your small business IT security strategy.
Financial fraud is still one of the most damaging types of attacks. Our solutions have a Safe Money subsystem that can protect your finances from scammers. It ensures that you access only genuine, secure financial sites, and it protects your financial data from unauthorised applications and unsafe browser extensions.
Your business information is another primary target for cybercriminals. That is why our solutions allow encryption of files and folders, and also includes an automated backup and restore feature to protect your data from cryptomalware.
Our solution can help keep your business applications up to date. By running a scheduled search for application updates, it decreases the risk of cybercriminals exploiting unpatched application vulnerabilities.
Part of our small business solutions is a module called Password Manager, which can store passwords, bank account details, document scans, and text notes in a secure vault.
In case you need it, the Small Office Security feature can be installed on the server and protect it as well as a workstation.
So what’s the solution? Is there one?
The good news is that SMB IT security is made easier with the right solution.
Based on the above, Kaspersky’s small business solutions are tailored to provide the following benefits:
