42, Inc. can help prevent cyberattacks.

What is your business doing to defend your network from cyberattacks? October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, making autumn the ideal time to refine your business cybersecurity platform and identify the evolving challenges and threats 2020 may bring. Without a concrete answer to the above question, you’re leaving your operations vulnerable to exploitation by cybercriminals. Fortunately, that also means you haven’t had to learn your lesson the hard way, so there’s still time to prepare.

In this post, we’ll explore the specific cybersecurity tactics the experts at 42, Inc. use to defend your network at every level while continually responding to new or evolving threats.

Ongoing Employee Awareness Training

You may be surprised to discover that one of the greatest threats to your network is actually your own employees. In 2018, 47% of business leaders reported that human error caused a data breach at their organization. That’s why our team at 42, Inc. prioritizes ongoing employee awareness and cybersecurity training for your employees. We can customize an ongoing security training platform around your industry-specific threats and network systems.

Cybersecurity training works best when scheduled on an ongoing basis. Network threats are continually evolving, and it’s easy for employees to forget warning signs of a potential attack on your network. Ongoing training allows them to stay up to date on the latest threats while reinforcing cybersecurity best practices until they eventually become second nature. When you partner with 42, Inc., we can develop an ongoing training schedule around your goals and operations.

Endpoint Security

On top of continually training your team, we also secure the endpoint devices they utilize on a daily basis. From installing and updating the latest antivirus and antimalware security platforms to implementing website filtering strategies, our team works to protect your network where it’s most vulnerable.

Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDS/IPS)

While cybercriminals attempt to infiltrate systems undetected, our intrusion detection and prevention systems work to pick up on any unusual network activity that may indicate a breach. IDS and IPS work behind the scenes by continually monitoring your network, identifying potential threats, tracking information on them, and reporting them to our team. That way, no suspicious network activity ever goes undetected on your systems.

Mobile Device Management

Mobile devices represent a unique cybersecurity vulnerability. Mobile devices are more prone to being lost or stolen than any other network device. If cybercriminals exploit a mobile device, they can potentially compromise your whole network and capitalize on sensitive data. We work to secure your team’s mobile devices, so they have the flexibility to work wherever their job takes them without having to worry about opening your network up to cybercriminals. Our experts secure your team’s devices, so even if they’re lost or stolen, cybercriminals will be unable to exploit them and attack your network.

Multi-Factor Authentication

Multi-factor authentication works by incorporating additional layers of protection to the systems your team uses to log into network systems. One of the more popular strategies for multi-factor authentication is tying each user’s account to their phone number. Whenever a user tries to log into your system, they’ll be prompted to enter a unique code that’s sent to their mobile device. That way, a cybercriminal would need access to their user credentials, password, and mobile device to compromise your network. While multi-factor authentication doesn’t completely eliminate the risk of a cyberattack, it significantly reduces the risk of a data breach even in the event that user passwords are compromised.

Penetration Testing

Penetration testing allows us to take a more hands-on approach to identifying and resolving your network’s specific vulnerabilities. Our team of ethical hackers attempts to infiltrate your system as a real-world cybercriminal would. If we’re unable to compromise your data, you know your network defenses are prepared to withstand most cyberattacks. If we’re able to access your system, you get a detailed list of specific vulnerabilities cybercriminals can potentially exploit.
