In mid-April, tech giant Microsoft issued a security alert for a specific segment of individuals and companies that subscribe to MSN, Hotmail, and Outlook services. The issue apparently stemmed from a data breach suffered by a single customer service agent whose username/password credentials were compromised; reportedly, malicious hackers were able to access a small subset of user accounts right down to message content and even email attachments. Thanks to the prompt security alert issued by Microsoft, users who could have been impacted were able to take action and reset their passwords before their accounts were actually compromised.
Your Hesperia Business can Benefit from these Advanced Network Protection Features
Security alerts and notifications are some of the advanced features that SonicCare Network Protection offers to Hesperia business owners. In essence, SonicCare constantly monitors servers and all other network components; the software agents that perform the monitoring functions are configured to alert Sonic Systems technicians of downtime, system outages, network intrusions, and other issues. In some cases, the system will be able to take immediate action and correct the problem automatically; what is more important, however, is that technicians are alerted so that they can mitigate losses.
In the current state of cyber threats, you cannot assume that hackers will never be able to breach your Hesperia network; what you should assume is a proactive stance to ensure that your network and your company data stay safe. Let’s say you get a security alert that indicates your Hesperia network is under a distributed denial-of-service attack; depending on the severity of the situation, technicians may recommend taking the network offline or blocking a certain IP range. Such a security alert can also let technicians know that they should prepare to recover from a managed data backup.
