IT Security Threats

ZAG can help deliver peace of mind through business-specific application of industry-leading security protocols, practices and products. ZAG enables organizations to quickly assess any and all threats (both external and internal) and strike that fine balance between giving users all they need to maximize productivity, while keeping them and the entire business safe from malicious websites and malware.

Today’s threats include: targeted ransomware, DDOS, zero-day attacks, and polymorphic malware. The entry points for these types of attacks are many and include: mobile device access points, Internet of Things (IoT) vulnerabilities, cloud exposure, and privileged account exploitation (internal attacks). Cybercrime is a part of our daily lives, but reports reveal that many companies are not properly protected or ready for a significant attack. Are you up to date? It might be time to assess your current network security protocols.

Who is at risk?

Attacks targeting businesses with less than 250 employees are on the rise, with 43 percent of all attacks in 2015 targeted at small businesses. More than 75 percent of all legitimate websites have unpatched vulnerabilities. Crypto-ransomware (encrypting files) grew 35 percent in 2015. Mobile devices in the workplace and the Internet of Things has introduced new avenues into your corporate network. These issues will not be going away, as attacks seem to get more sophisticated.

At ZAG, our IT security consultants help clients identify vulnerabilities and assess real business risk, meet compliance mandates, devise security processes and prepare for a cybersecurity breach. And if necessary, we can help you recover from a breach.
