The threat is real: How to protect your business against cyberthreats and prevent costly breaches

Sponsored by

Businesses big and small face digital threats every day. The average cybersecurity attack on a small business costs the victim, on average, $117,000. Small businesses must take proactive steps to secure their assets: identify the threats, set risk-tolerance levels, and implement technology solutions.

Fulfilling many of these security objectives requires specialized security solutions. Companies that find themselves under-resourced in terms of time and budget benefit from taking a technology partner. A variety of technologies must be employed in a carefully architected network in order to protect a business adequately.

In a rapidly changing field like cybersecurity, businesses must constantly update their knowledge and manage technological updates. These demands challenge smaller IT departments. Visit eatelbusiness.com/cybersecurity to learn how to right-size the firewall services you need to protect your business.
