Why Businesses Need to Focus on Network Security
Even the best hacker isn’t necessarily smarter than the typical cybersecurity professional, but they do move faster and innovate more often. In many ways the hackers are in control. Organizations looking to improve their security with the latest counter-measures must evaluate, purchase, install, and test it on their own networks to make use of it. Meanwhile cyberattacks might developed a new tactic. But there are four good reasons why managed security professionals should top your list of safeguards.
1. Speed of Delivery
A company investing in new technology typically has to wait 1-2 years to start seeing appreciable benefits. This is why more organizations are turning to managed security services (MSS). CTG Tech already has the latest cyber protection tools and techniques in place, and can quickly implement proactive monitoring, incident management, threat detection, and other digital initiatives that dramatically increase speed-to-value. A variety of technologies can easily be put in play to suit customer priorities and specific risk management strategies.
2. Cost Control
Implementing and sustaining the latest security technology across the enterprise can be a large investment. A security provider allows you to reduce these expenses through solutions that require less capital and staffing. Your existing IT can focus on in-house projects while letting MSS experts take care of network monitoring, security audits, and other constant responsibilities. A security services provider can be used on a temporary basis for design and consulting needs or on a continuing basis to provide reliable expert support. CTG Tech allows an affordable, flat monthly fee that is easier to budget.
3. Cyber Intelligence/Access to Innovation
Many organizations don’t have the resources or skills to respond effectively to cyberattacks. Analyzing security logs takes specialized skills, as does implementing the right response for your company. Monitoring security risks requires constant attention as well as intelligence on changing hacker techniques and existing system weaknesses. Most organizations will prefer to work with an experienced and credentialed MSS with the training to provide the best possible safeguards as well as properly implement the latest security solutions and upgrades as they appear.
4. Maintain Compliance
The government has established and enforces guidelines for data protection such as Sarbanes-Oxley, and HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act). Audits take place to ensure these regulations are observed. Keeping up with changes to these requirements, not just for organizations but any business partners that might have data access, can be a huge burden. Being sure that compliance is properly observed and maintained falls within the skills of a security provider like CTG Tech. Knowing that all regulations are properly observed can be a source of confidence and peace of mind not just for your organization, but for partners and customers.
