A catch-all solution isn’t enough to protect your business data. You really need several solutions working in tandem. We recommend combining a unified threat management tool, a Bring Your Own Device policy, and a virtual private network solution. Let’s take a look:
A unified threat management tool is several security solutions bundled into one:
This forms a comprehensive security tool that can significantly decrease the odds of a security breach or malware attack.
BYOD is a great business idea, but we need to be careful, as employee devices can allow online threats into your organization’s network. We recommend that businesses implement a BYOD policy. A good BYOD policy should prioritize security through a mobile device management system that whitelists and blacklists applications, and should allow businesses to remotely wipe the devices if necessary.
Virtual private networks, or VPNs, are great for businesses with employees who are remote or need to access important data from outside the office. A VPN encrypts all data coming in and out, allowing your employees to work outside the office in a secure environment. This is particularly valuable for organizations with many moving parts.
