TwentyFour IT Services is partnered with a market leading endpoint encryption solution, which has the capacity to completely protect confidential company data.
Endpoint security is becoming increasingly required by businesses who wish to protect their data, particularly where USB drives and external hard drives are used to transfer data between multiple laptops and desktops, servers and switches.
Did you know? An infected USB memory caused the most dangerous security gap ever located on military computers.
Encryption – what is it? Why would your business need it?
Endpoint encryption is one of the most effective methods used to achieve data security and deter the cyber criminals from stealing your data. In order to access an encrypted file, a user must have access to a key code or password to view the sensitive information.
Practically every bit of of data that your business has access to can be encrypted. This can range from emails to bank information, customer data to internal communications. Removable media, files and mobile devices can all hold this information so it is important to understand who can gain access to this type of information and how it can be shared.
Many employees now bring their own devices into the workplace and work from remote locations. The right level of access needs to be taken into consideration and this can easily be enforced, by using a single console to deploy and manage user access and administration rights.
Multi factor authentication
The risk of a company wide data breach is an ever present threat for all business owners. Encryption and multi factor authentication are highly recommended data loss prevention (DLP) tools, that we have helped companies to implement, heightening their level of data security and helping to meet regulatory compliance standards.
Multi factor authentication is another example of multi-layered security to help safeguard sensitive data. This form of security requires a user to enter several forms of identification before being bale to gain access to a network or device. One of the most common example’s of this type of security is being asked for a password and then the second step is entering a code consisting of a certain number of digits. Without clearing both these steps then the user will be denied access.
You can rest assured that your devices are fully secured against potential security threats, such as viruses, malware and scams. The software we use proactively monitors for IT breaches and can identify the source of a threat by producing detailed audit reports on each device, user and sector of your organisation.
