IT security is an often underestimated topic. It is no longer sufficient to install a virus scanner on a computer. Nowadays, IT security encompasses significantly more areas and several measures are also necessary to protect against attackers efficiently. The GDPR also requires state of the art implementation.
We would like to give you an overview of the IT infrastructure you need not only to ensure data protection in your company, but also to be able to work effectively.
The most important protective measure is the firewall. This filters access to their IT system. Only authorized access is allowed; if attackers want to access your computer, this is prevented by the firewall. Modern devices not only protect against access from the outside, but also ensure that unauthorized websites are not accessed from their computers. This gives you control over what employees access during their working hours. With simple means, access to Facebook, Twitter and/or Youtube can be blocked. Instead of blocking individual pages, you can also block entire topics such as pornography or illegal music portals. This not only makes your work more efficient, but also reduces your legal risk.
Every computer in the company network must be secured despite the presence of a firewall. Malware not only gets onto their computers via the Internet but can also be transferred via USB sticks, CDs or other data carriers. Today’s viruses and Trojans hide in seemingly harmless programs and strike when you are not expecting it.
Today’s virus scanners only respond to such threats, what you need is true endpoint protection. These programs can do more than just warn about viruses and Trojans, instead, fully protect their computers and servers.
With our solution, you can centrally lock the computers’ USB ports for data media and release them again as needed. It also protects CD and DVD drives. This is how you prevent malware from getting past the firewall.
Without communication between security solutions, attackers have an easy game. Once a device is infected, it must be isolated from all other computers and servers, otherwise the infection will spread uncontrollably and your entire network will be paralyzed in no time.
With synchronized security, all endpoints communicate with each other and with the firewall. This prevents the infection from spreading.
Imagine a malicious program encrypts all your documents (so-called ransomware), after a few minutes you no longer have access to your customer data, your accounting, etc. and the extortionist demands “ransom” to release your data again. This can only be prevented with synchronized security, because Endpoint Protection detects the attack and informs all other computers, thereby stopping the attack.
Synchronized security can only be achieved if the security solutions are from a single source, programs from different manufacturers do not communicate with each other.
The leader in this field is Sophos, all Sophos solutions communicate with each other: firewall, endpoint protection, email protection, server protection and many more. Decide today for the cost-effective solution from the market leader, we at easyGDPR will be happy to advise you.
