Cyber-attacks do not only happen between accepted business hours. In order to defend networks and devices against malicious threats and extraordinary user behavior that might indicate a data breach, our Security Operations Center (SOC) needs to operate continually 24/7. We have invested heavily in ensuring the right technology and the right staff work in conjunction to keep your data and by default your business safe.
Security Monitoring and Compliance As time progresses, more economic sectors and industries will have to adhere to regulatory compliance geared to protecting client data. For example, PCI DSS, HIPAA, and FISMA might be some of the current pieces of legislation your company may need to adhere to. Additionally, if your company does business internationally then you would need to apply to international standards. To that effect, many pieces of legislation and agreed upon best practices recommend that businesses and organisations have a monitored solution to ensure compliance.
The Cost of Attack or Breach The costs surrounding a cyber-attack or data breach are continually on the rise. In 2016, the estimated cost of such an event, when all things are considered, is $4 million. Given the recent trends in 2017, this cost is expected to rise. Many small to medium enterprises simply cannot afford the potential cost an attack could have, and as a result many small to medium organisations have to close their doors for good following an attack or breach. Furthermore, if it is proved that the organisation did not adhere to regulatory legislation, the cost may rise drastically in terms of legal costs.
Security monitoring of your system can potentially save your business millions of dollars and ensure regulatory compliance. Just in regards to your clients bottom line, Vijilan will not only prevent costly attacks but save you money. Sadly, attacks are a case of “if” not “when”, given the popularity of criminals and state actors to exploit vulnerabilities in networks and devices. https://www.ponemon.org/local/upload/file/2016%20HPE%20CCC%20GLOBAL%20REPORT%20FINAL%203.pdf(reference used for the cost of a breach)
Vijilan offers a fully-managed service, meaning that all of the monitoring, implementation, and deployment is handled by Vijilan. This allows your client to focus on their core business with the peace of mind that all their cybersecurity needs are considered.
