Peace of mind — it’s what all business owners want when it comes to data and physical plant security. Yet, threats against a company’s network from malware, ransomware, phishing, botnet infections and real intruders are omnipresent. To keep up, many businesses are augmenting their IT teams with cloud-based internet security services that block access to known malicious domains, preventing business owners, employees or guests from accessing an infected site. By learning from activity patterns, products like Cox Business MalBlock update their threat databases every 10 minutes, protecting smart devices connected to a company’s Local Area Network or WiFi network without needing software installations on each device.
Creating a smart business environment with intrusion detection technology is just as important. Business owners should consider safeguarding their business with physical plant security products that include features like real-time video surveillance, traffic pattern analysis, remote smart device access, wireless movement detection, professional monitoring and customized alerts.
Cloud-based business security solutions and business intrusion technology create a smart business environment.
