They say recognizing a problem is the first step in solving it. But when it comes to cybersecurity, many small- and medium-sized businesses don’t believe they have a problem. Many simply believe that hackers will focus their attention exclusively on large and well-heeled organizations, and aren’t interested in smaller businesses. Unfortunately, this couldn’t be further from the truth, and this “it won’t happen to me” mentality leaves them highly susceptible to attacks.
While some attacks do target large corporations, most still do not discriminate based on the size of organization. Hackers just want to compromise the network and its devices to steal any and all data they can sell or use for their own ends. And once they’ve hacked a network server, they can use it to launch attacks on others.
This means that, in our current, constantly evolving threat landscape, simply deploying an antivirus solution isn’t enough. Only a layered security strategy that includes multi-vector protection can successfully fend off advanced, zero-day threats like ransomware, malware, and more.
