Enabling access without borders
Identity-driven security means all users can have remote access to their applications, data, and communications at all times without the risk of security breaches.
Securing data from breach or loss is a top priority for most companies today. Clicking just one wrong link or opening one wrong attachment can give hackers immediate access to the most sensitive company information – or allow them to encrypt the data and hold a company to ransom.
At Amaxra we take security and backup very seriously.
Cyber criminals looking for a big pay day are attacking businesses using hacking tools that are freely downloadable from the Internet and often capable of by-passing all the cyber-defenses a company puts in place (often at considerable cost). No matter what size your company is, if you’re connected the Internet you are likely vulnerable. And backing up your data reliably is just as important as protecting it from unauthorized breach. A current data backup is often the best defense against most cyber-attacks and ransomware.
Buying a lot of cyber-defense technology isn’t a good strategy. Buying solutions tailored to your specific situation, coupled with staff training to recognize and thwart the most frequent types of attack, is the best way to protect your confidential data and your business.
And just because you’re using cloud technology, your risks aren’t necessarily greater to have your own servers in your own machine room. In fact, your security outlook can improve if you use the right cloud tools such as single-sign-on for every user. Cloud backups are easier and more affordable than they once were. Amaxra can show you how staff training, real-time cloud backup, and just enough cyber-security tools, will allow you to rest easier and focus on your business.
Your employees and network aren’t the only source of security breaches and data loss. You need to secure communications with your business partners and customers too. Data leaks, stolen credentials, lost devices and compromised identities are concerns you can guard against with the right processes, policies, tools, and applications in place. Our job is to evaluate your current situation and recommend training, tools, and procedures to reduce the ability of cyber-attacks to interrupt your business. Buying a lot of expensive software is not a winning strategy. Most businesses can significantly reduce their exposure to cyber-attacks with training of their staff and tuning the configuration of their IT infrastructure. For example, when you host your e-mail and document infrastructure on Office 365, you can add on state of the art cyber-protections to your package.
In the event of a company-wide system crash or natural disaster, will your IT department be able to recover quickly and get back in operation? If you have no data, servers or website, will you lose customers? According to a Nationwide 2016 Small Business Indicator survey, one in every four businesses never re-open following a major disaster. Amaxra can help move your IT infrastructure to the Cloud, and put your data on a regular backup schedule, so that your business documents and applications will always be available in the event of failure, fire, or natural disaster. With Amaxra, your business can stay up and running, no matter what.
Cyber criminals have become very sophisticated – always finding new and novel ways to make money from hacking, ransomware and phishing attacks. For most businesses, it is only a matter of time before an attack succeeds. Amaxra can work with you to increase the security of your existing IT infrastructure and applications. We can show you new, cost-effective approaches to protecting your data and your company as you migrate applications to the Cloud. Office 365, for example, has built-in security and compliance reporting tools. You can remotely wipe all data from company mobile device should they be lost or stolen. Let Amaxra show you how to keep company data safer no matter where employees are accessing it, or where it’s stored.
For all the firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, and anti-virus software you deploy, it’s impossible to block every security threat to your business using technology alone. Intrusions often happen as a result of weak passwords and staff who aren’t trained to recognize the signs of an attack. You must rely on your employee to keep your network safe. They’re on the front lines. If they download a mysterious email attachment or click on a tempting pop-up window they could be giving hackers instant and undetectable access.
Amaxra provides in-person and web-based training for your employees on why security is crucial, and how their alert actions can substantially reduce the odds of a cyber-attack succeeding. We can help you develop written security policies tailored to your organization. With the right standards of business conduct in place, backed by effective training, you will be able to close the most common avenues hackers use to get into corporate systems. Amaxra has security experts who can educate your staff and help you establish protection approaches that have proven most effective in thwarting cyber-attacks. Stop cyber criminals in their tracks by training your staff and securing you data and applications.
