IDC predicts that SMMEs will, in their first five to seven years of business experience a security incident of some kind. Recently WannaCryptor (known more widely as WannaCry) spread through the internet indiscriminatly encrypting any PC that was vulnerable, from individual devices through to large business infrastructures.
Securing your SMME business from cyber-threats has traditionally been a tricky affair. Most SMMEs often don’t know where to start securing the business and ignore the serious impact that security breaches until they become victims. Enterprise solutions also cost a pretty penny (and then some) and lower-cost solutions often don’t have the sophistication to deal with the constant stream of threats cybercriminals are thinking up.
Lock it down
The obvious answer is lock everything down, but for a business with mobile employees and those working remotely, this is not a simple solution by any stretch of the imagination. Even locking down your infrastructure on-site can cause issues for companies looking at sharing files or even trying to send emails.
Ideally a business needs a gatekeeper that not only detects threats but stops them before they enter your business network while not hindering day-to-day operations.
