Protecting Your Business: 3 Crucial Security Tools You Shouldn't Be Without

As a business owner, you know that your data is one of your most valuable assets. Keeping it safe and secure should be one of your top priorities. However, with so many different security solutions available, figuring out which ones are essential for your business can be overwhelming.

Fortunately, there are a few minimum-security standards that every business should implement right away. Here are three essential security tools that every business should have in place:

  1. A firewall: A firewall acts as a barrier between your network and the outside world. It monitors the traffic entering and leaving your IT network and is your first defence against unauthorized access. A firewall can help prevent hackers from infiltrating your network and stealing your data.
  2. A password manager: Passwords are an essential part of online security, but they can also be weak if they are easy to guess or reuse across multiple accounts. A password manager stores all of your passwords in one secure location and can generate strong, unique passwords for all of your accounts. This can help prevent brute force attacks and ensure that your passwords are not written down in an insecure location.
  3. A VPN (Virtual Private Network): A VPN is essential for any business that has remote or hybrid workers. It allows employees to securely access your network from anywhere, without worrying about their online activity being monitored by criminals. A VPN encrypts all traffic between your device and the internet, making it nearly impossible for anyone to intercept or read your data.

While these three tools are the minimum recommendations, some additional tools and features can provide even greater security for your business. For example, multi-factor authentication can add an extra layer of protection by requiring users to provide multiple forms of identification before accessing sensitive data. Antivirus software can also help detect and remove malware that may have already infiltrated your network.

It's important to note that every business has different priorities and types of data to protect. That's why it's essential to create a security plan that's tailored to your specific needs. If you're unsure where to start, seeking professional help can be a great option.

At Riverity Technology Services, we're passionate about cyber security and helping businesses stay protected.
