The work-from-home dynamic creates a very opportunistic situation for hackers and phishers as every home device or wireless connection is a potential entry point for cyber attacks. From a hacker’s perspective, employees who are using unencrypted devices or Wi-Fi connections or aren’t following IT policies are easy targets. One misstep—intentionally or otherwise—could compromise the network and give unauthorized access to personal, financial, and other sensitive data. And if businesses do not protect their data and their networks, they could be subject to significant legal liability, financial risks, or worse. Intelisys has a full portfolio of network and cybersecurity solutions including:
- Firewall: a network security solution that monitors and controls incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules.
- Web filtering: technology that stops users from viewing certain URLs or websites by preventing their browsers from loading pages from these sites.
- Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS): IDS monitors events occurring in the network and analyzes them for possible incidents, violations, and threats to security policy. IPS then kicks in to stop the detected incident.
- Email anti-spam and scanning: software that automatically reviews every email message to check for viruses, malware, and spam.
- DDoS mitigation: Solutions that successfully protect a targeted server or network from Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks, which threaten to make the server/network unavailable to the employees.
- Dark web monitoring: also known as cyber monitoring, is an identity theft prevention product that enables you to monitor your identity information on the dark web and receive notifications if your information is found online.
- Active directory integration: enables the organization to centrally and easily manage permissions and access to networked resources across the workforce.
- Multifactor authentication: is an authentication method in which a user is granted access to the network (or device) after successfully presenting two or more pieces of evidence (factors).
- Antivirus and zero-day mitigation services: protect against known and unknown viruses and software vulnerabilities that will compromise and expose the network to virtual attacks.
- Identity (ID) management: refers to services that help identify, authenticate, and authorize individuals or groups of people to have access to applications, systems or networks by associating user rights and restrictions with established identities.
