Common Security Challenges for Small Business Owners

Businesses face threats on many fronts, and the more users, devices, and applications you add, the more vulnerable your network becomes.

Increased Attack Frequency

Hackers are constantly finding innovative ways to break into networks. Each year, small businesses around the globe experience cyber attacks at increasing rates, many of which are forced to close down shortly after.

Targetted Zero-Day Attacks

Zero-Day attacks occur when a bad actor exploits a weakness in software, creating a major security risk for small businesses. These attacks may include malware, spyware or unlawful access to user information.

Unprecedented Vulnerability

Without a segmented solution in place, a hacker can easily gain access to the network through any of your endpoints and quickly move laterally across the network, giving them immediate access to all of your business’ private data.

Enabling Remote Connectivity

Many small businesses outsource some of their services through third-parties, freelancers and consultants, which often means they need to allow these individuals to access their network remotely. This poses significant security risks to private data.

The Benefits of Network Security for Small Business

Complete network security allows small business owners to manage risks, investigate incidences and ensure compliance with security regulations and company policies.

Secure network access allows small businesses to:

  • Quickly scale your network with total ease
  • Protect your business from security breaches
  • Comply with government and industry-specific regulations
  • Allow employees to work securely from any location - whether it’s on-site, at home, or while traveling

How Small Businesses Can Secure Their Private Network
