PHYSICAL SECURITY + VIRTUAL SECURITY = COMPLETE PROTECTION
by Adam Miller
You protect commercial customers from someone breaking in through their doors and windows, but what are you doing to help your customer protect their network and digital assets?
Q. Are cyber-attacks really that detrimental to small businesses?
The average monetary loss to a small business from a burglary is $2,000, while the monetary loss to a small business from a cyber-attack can be up to $87,000.
Q. Are cyber-attacks as much of a threat to small businesses as larger enterprises?
As larger corporations are allocating more and more of their budgets to network security, smaller businesses are becoming a prime target for hackers with 1 in 5 small businesses falling victim to cybercrime each year and of those, 60% going out of business as a result of the accompanying financial damages… Physical Security – Virtual Security = LOST CUSTOMER.
Q. My customers are protected by basic antivirus software, so they are fine, right?
Today, having basic antivirus software is the equivalent of a customer putting a lock on the front door and thinking they are protected. As security dealers, we all preach and know that one deterrent is not going to offer complete protection. Just as your customers need door contacts, motion detectors, and video cameras in addition to a standard lock, they also need a Unified Threat Management system (UTM) in addition to basic antivirus software.
Q. How will my customers know they are being protected?
