Monitoring is simply not enough, it is vital that you have multiple layers of security for your business. There was a time when anti virus software was adequate for your business. We believe today that by having multiple layers of security we can better help your business to avoid attack. That is not to say your business will ever be 100% protected. By using different layers you minimise the risk of a user clicking a phishing email and entering their password into a fake website.
By using hardware and software you can achieve this tiered approach, we have for years been installing Watchguard firewalls as perimeter security. This sits at the entry point to your network offering a higher firewall than your standard router. It is similar to your anti virus in that it will constantly update to pickup on new attacks. It will scan the data and connections coming into your network and block anything suspicious. It checks the websites your staff visit to make sure they are legit not on any suspicious lists and staff are not being redirected from a legitimate site.
