Preventing Attacks on Your Network
It’s important to note that preventing attacks is becoming more and more involved due to threats being
targeted across verticals, and the wide array of attacks; such as crimeware and web attacks. As the
attacks get more and more complex, business security solutions needs to be up to par with the
complexity. Not only large businesses, but SMB’s need to be proactively taking a holistic approach
with their security plan, technologies and talent.
Many businesses assume they can manage their cybersecurity, compliance requirements, and
updating information technologies in house without certified security experts. Typically, this is more
prevalent in small medium businesses as large corporations express a constant need for Managed
Security Service Providers (MSSP). Due to the majority of SMB’s lacking continuous monitoring and
threat detection, SMB’s need to start taking a more holistic approach to their security plans in place. It
is important to understand and not overlook the fact that these requirements do not discriminate. If
you are a small or a large business the same requirements apply.
Network security, compliance, modeling and performance require full time professionals with the ability
to keep up on thousands of connections and changes. Businesses should focus on internal practices
and provide written documents to team leaders, outlining best practices in the event of security
breaches or data theft, illustrating to their employees the impacts on their networks.
Leave compliance and security to those who specialize in cybersecurity. Using an outside company
adds one of the most important aspects in preventing attacks, visibility.
Network visibility across your organization cannot be accomplished effectively or efficiently without the
proper people, processes and technologies in place. Vertek® specializes in these areas using a
Cybersecurity operations Center (CSOC) staffed with certified Security Engineers; each with a
