Understanding network security can be complicated and protecting against a cyber attack is hard to do whilst juggling all the other issues involved in running a business. The cost of a security breach to an SME can cause significant disruption to that business and the onward supply chain.
Research by the National Cyber Security Centre found that almost half (43%) of British SMEs admit to having no business continuity, disaster recovery or crisis management plans in place, despite almost the same number of UK businesses (46%) suffering at least one cyber security breach or attack.
DCS continually assess new technologies and their ability to enhance and protect our clients’ businesses.
Best practice recommends a layered security model, next-generation firewalls plug a vital security gap, protecting the perimeter of your network. DCS managed firewalls services remove the complexity associated with choosing a host of add-ons and ensuring they are correctly integrated. We design, install, configure and take care of the day-to-day management of your firewall solution.
Traditional firewalls offer little protection to your business against emerging security threats, often using static rulesets occasionally with a level of anti-virus protection. Only a few vendors offer real-time next-generation firewall technology for SMEs. Download the whitepaper – Achieve Deeper Network Security.
