What is Cybersecurity?
Cybersecurity is the proactive approach to securing your network and data. Too often do I hear people say “my modem from [insert ISP here] already has a firewall built in to it, doesn’t it?”
Why isn’t the firewall in my modem sufficient?
A firewall is only part of the solution. You have other things like Virus Protection, SPAM/Phishing Filters, Application Control, etc. to consider when implementing a cybersecurity plan. Then you have the human factor to contend with. Especially with BYOD being very popular.
What are my options?
Here at Cape Cod Office Consultants, we install what are called “Gateway Security Appliances” for our customers. These are custom-built systems tailored to your business that are much more than a firewall that inspects every packet moving in and out of your network. Those packets can then be allowed or denied based on specific rules that are set on a per-company basis.
The more valuable your data is, the more secure you need your network to be.
If you would like to discuss more about your business and cybersecurity, please schedule a consult so we can help tailor a solution to secure your network and your data.
