Cybercrime has increased by 600 percent as a fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the current cybersecurity landscape, small businesses have a target on their backs. Cybercriminals know SMBs don’t have the budget, staff or resources needed to stand up a proper cybersecurity practice—and they’re actively trying to exploit that.
The tools typically found in a legacy security suite, like antivirus and firewall, focus on prevention—and while prevention is a critical layer of cybersecurity, it’s not a bulletproof one. Attackers are getting smarter; they’re adapting their tactics to evade detection of typical prevention tools. Essentially, as long as you have a digital footprint, you’re a target, so you should be putting the right cyber defenses in place to protect yourself.
When it comes to cybersecurity, a layered approach is the best approach.
Detection and response are crucial underlying layers of security because they allow us to find and stop the attackers on your machines who are hiding in plain sight. Bringing this offensive approach to cybersecurity means you are not waiting for something catastrophic to happen before you are able to respond.
To stay ahead of cyberattacks before they happen, companies of all sizes increasingly turn to managed detection and response (MDR) solutions. To protect our clients from evolving threats, we offer Huntress MDR as part of our cybersecurity services. This added layer of protection is designed specifically to look for hidden threats and “quiet indicators” of compromise that other tools miss. If your primary defenses fail, MDR provides active threat hunting that can be the difference between a quick recovery and a damaging incident.
Prepare to mitigate a potential attack by having the right mix of cybersecurity tools, training, practices, and strategies that change with your security posture. To further strengthen your security posture, choose a managed detection and response service that provides the latest AI and machine-learning threat detection, contains incidents before they spread, and rapidly responds to mitigate further risks. Keep your cyber attackers at bay; detect and prevent them with an MDR.
