40% of Spam attacks spread from the first victim to the second within 6 hours or less.
Most businesses are in the prevention of intrusions, and almost exclusively focus on the perimeter of their corporate network (A Simple Firewall).
What they fail to realize are two things:
One of the best ways to protect yourself is to work with a Managed Service Provider, with a Security focus like REAL. Our experience in
managing thousands of devices gives us the knowledge to apply the appropriate security software and devices to give you the protection you need.
- No matter how much money you spend on intrusion prevention, there are always vulnerabilities
and zero-day exploits waiting to be utilized. Look into hacked articles about Sony, Verizon, Home Depot, Myspace, Yahoo, and Target.
- More than half of the attacks are carried out by insiders, and most of those are malicious and
intentional. If you are going to invest in cyber defenses, make certain to incorporate early detection of anomalies, including those
which could originate from your staff. We have dealt with several of these situations.
Companies look to us for ongoing guidance, not to sell them tools. We meet regularly with our clients to assess and discuss how
they can be more secure. We provide current awareness of trends we see with other clients as well as emerging threats.
