Finding hackers once they have gained access to your system is a reactive way to address security for any Dallas business. A proactive method is to work with a managed IT service offering a quality intruder prevention system or IPS.
Think of an intruder prevention system as a simple way to ensure the privacy and confidentiality of your business information as well as the information you store about your clients, customers, vendors, and suppliers. This information may not be financial information, but it can include valuable details to allow hackers to then gain access to those financial records.
Any IPS has to be designed to immediately respond to known threats. As new malware, spyware and ransomware are constantly developed, the IPS has to reflect these issues to provide the protection you need.
Look for systems offered by top IT management and security companies with real-time updating capacity. By immediately closing loopholes and vulnerabilities in a system, the risk of zero-day attacks can be greatly reduced.
Integrates with Software
Most businesses in Dallas have some form of security software. It will be important for the intruder prevention system to work fully with the currently installed software, not as a stand-alone component.
The top software packages for IPS should complement the current security. However, there may be areas of vulnerability, which will be found throughout the system which will need to be addressed for the IPS to be effective.
A key component of any IPS is to constantly monitor behavior across the system and provide access to reports for system administrators. This allows or any unusual activity to be immediately flagged and analyzed, helping to quickly and effectively highlight any breaches or attempted breaches of the system.
Compare different options in IPS software before making a choice. Choose a system with a proven track record which is easy to deploy and use and which will integrate with current security software.
