Cyber Security Risks for Businesses Are Escalating. Here’s What to Do About It

As the next wave of work transitions begin, cyber security risks for businesses continue to keep executive teams up at night. And if you take a good look at the most recent statistics, you’ll see exactly why that is. 

2020 broke all records in terms of data breaches and sheer number of cyber attacks.1 Also, threats continue to grow from emerging technologies like machine learning, artificial intelligence, and 5G. Here’s more fuel for the fire:

  • 78% of business leaders lack confidence in their organization’s cyber security posture.
  • Nearly 80% of senior IT executives believe their organization lacks sufficient protection against cyber attacks.
  • Malware increased by 358% in 2020.
  • Ransomware increased by 435% over 2019.
  • Phishing attacks account for 80% of reported security incidents.

The Best Strategy for Countering These Attacks Is Employing Managed Security

Your clients’ security needs are best left in the hands of professionals that eat, sleep, and breathe all things cyber security. Managed security provides everything businesses need to ensure their networks and customer data are safe – even as cyber threats continue to rise.

The new and improved Communications Stack now employs a one-of-a-kind, all-in-one approach that includes:

  • Cloud-native security platforms
  • Fortified next-generation firewalls
  • Remote access protection
  • Advanced threat monitoring and protection

If your clients are facing such headaches as lack of bandwidth, difficulty keeping security software up to date, overtaxed IT teams, and threat monitoring and prevention issues, they would greatly benefit from managed security.

Making Investments in Advanced Security Solutions to Counter the Frightening Growth of Cyber Attacks

NHC’s partnership with Check Point Software Technologies has paved the way for cloud security and SD-WAN security solutions that help business executives rest easy.

NHC’s CloudSecure™ and EdgeSecure™ with SD-WAN are bringing next-generation, cloud-native protections that deliver enterprise-grade security fortified with top-rated threat detection and prevention, rapid deployment, and unified management. 

CloudSecure™ Fills Security Gaps of Branch Offices and Enterprise WAN

As your clients move their on-premise workloads and applications to cloud platforms, they need SD-WAN to intelligently route traffic both to the cloud using local broadband and to the data center via existing MPLS lines. 

But connecting branch offices to the cloud through local internet greatly increases the security risk as branches are no longer protected by centralized data center security. Additionally, enterprise WAN is exposed to multi-vector Gen-V attacks. 

Thus an agile, cost-effective, easy-to-maintain, and always up-to-date solution with the latest security is needed – CloudSecure™.

CloudSecure™ is a cloud-hosted network threat protection service offering a maintenance-free, affordable solution for your clients that have remote sites and branch locations. It seamlessly delivers the latest, most comprehensive cyber security available on the market today.

Virtual Security Gateway – EdgeSecure™ With SD-WAN

EdgeSecure™ with SD-WAN is a small-footprint virtual security gateway with advanced threat prevention that can be centrally deployed and up and running in minutes, making it an ideal solution for your clients with branch locations.

It integrates with leading branch office network vendors, so organizations with multiple locations get industry-leading protection with accelerated delivery while reducing operating costs and capital expenditures. Additionally, your clients have full control of security policy and data to satisfy privacy and regulation requirements.
