When it comes to network security, it is easy for small to medium sized businesses to say “not me”, “they are only after the big guys.” The reality is that attacks on all networks have been increasing year after year as hackers have become more sophisticated, and small businesses are being affected every day by relaxed or non-existent security policies.

A 2022 statistics show that 64% of all companies have suffered a cyberattack in their lifetime. With the ever-increasing technological advances, it is likely that these numbers continue to climb, posing a significant risk for a potential breach, lost or stolen data, or some type of malicious threat.

There are a number of ways Healthy Technology Solutions can help Southern Nevada and Central Florida businesses ensure that they are minimizing their cyber risk. Whether you are in Las Vegas, Henderson, Ocala or Inverness, our local experts can help with:

  • Updates - Keeping computers and network equipment updated is one of the most effective steps to preventing a possible network security issue.
  • Firewall - A common mistake in small to medium business networks is the lack of a business grade firewall solution. Often business owners are unaware of the difference between having a network router and having a network firewall in place.
  • Passwords - Password and password protection are proving to be an area that needs attention when discussing network security. Using sophisticated software and tools, hackers are easily gaining access to small business networks through simple or default passwords
  • Antivirus/Antispam - Most people know that antivirus and antispam software are necessary components of network security, but many people don’t realize why its so important until their computer or network is infected with a virus, malware, spyware, or a host of other potentially dangerous issues.
  • EDR/MDR - Endpoint Detection & Response/Managed Detection and Response software is now critical to protecting your staff and systems. Anti-Virus is not even close to enough any more!
  • 2 Factor Authentication - Passwords are no longer good enough. Adding 2FA to protect your Office 365, VPN connectivity and other applications is critical in today's high risk cyber environment!
  • Password Manager - Password reuse is a big security hole, but remembering dozens or even hundreds of strong passwords is not possible. A corporate password management application is essential to a solid cyber security program!
  • Cyber Security Policy, Cloud Security, Mobile Device Management and much more...
