5 Important Security Tools to Improve Your Business Security, Enstep, Houston TX

The security of your business directly affects your reputation. Keeping your physical and online information secure is crucial to your success.

Security Assessment

A security assessment can ensure that your technology is adequately protected. These reviews notify you of vulnerabilities, limitations and provide a risk analysis. This is a good place to start when gauging your business security.  Data breaches can do significant damage to your business and can hurt consumer confidence. Click To Tweet

Here are 5 other security tools that can help:

  1. Firewall
  2. Physical Security
  3. 24/7 Remote Monitoring
  4. Employee Training
  5. Business Continuity Plan

1) Firewall

A firewall is a network security system that monitors all network traffic and decides what is allowed to pass through and what is kept out. Such systems can be hardware or software but is usually a combination of both.

2) Physical Security Measures

Cybersecurity is a top priority for most top companies, and for good reason. However, it’s important to make sure that security is maintained both off and online. Installing a security system can provide an additional layer of protection for your employees and office or storefront.

3) 24/7 Remote Monitoring

Remote monitoring provides peace of mind for business owners. When issues or problems arise, your IT team can identify and repair most issues without having to access your office. If they do need access, they will let you know.

4) Employee Training

Employees should follow strict security guidelines. These should include being able to spot scams or phishing attempts, using unique passwords, and changing passwords at least 2 times per year. Employees should never send unencrypted sensitive data via email and should shred all trash with customer or financial data.

5) Business Continuity Plan

Hardware or network failures can occur due to hackers, malware, electrical failure, flooding and more.  If you don’t have a backup in such situations, your data can be permanently lost or inaccessible. Backups should be a daily or weekly occurrence, using either an external hard drive, cloud storage, or a combination of the two. 

Business Security Tools

Most business owners are too focused on running their businesses to spend time on anything else. Choosing the right IT service provider allows you to focus on growth, without sacrificing security. In turn, you’ll be protected, secure and able to maintain the confidence of your customers.
