Why You Need a Multi-layered Security Strategy
Data security is one of the most important yet daunting tasks that a business is faced with. One of the best ways to prevent a harmful cyberattack is to implement a multi-layered security strategy. Layered security incorporates numerous security solutions that all proactively work together to protect an organization’s IT environment.
One security solution your business should use is Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR). This is an advanced, behavioral-based antivirus software that uses profiling to track suspicious and unusual behavior and identifies the root of the issue to prevent future attacks. EDR security protects endpoints from being breached, whether physical or virtual, on-premises, in data centers, or in the cloud.
Unfortunately, many cyberattacks begin at the origin of email, so incorporating email scanning and filtering is an essential component of multi-layered security. You can layer in an intelligent filtering system to scan emails for spam and other threats. Email security is crucial for a multi-layered security strategy.
Another key component to a security strategy needs to be end-user cybersecurity training. Human error is easily the biggest risk to any company’s information security. It is important to educate your employees on how to detect potential threats and steps they can take daily to help protect themselves, as well as your organization.
The more steps and protection you can put in place, the more you decrease the chance you become a victim of a cyberattack. Incorporating a multi-layered security strategy can dramatically reduce your risk. Need help with implementing this?
