In late 2018, an information security researcher was monitoring an internet forum frequented by malicious hackers when something caught his attention: 87 GB worth of compromised username/password combinations harvested from a many websites that provide various online services. In total, the researcher estimated that the file contained more than a million combinations of email addresses and passwords that can be used to access services such Dropbox, Google Docs, Outlook, and others.
The Severity of Cyberattacks
Around the same time the aforementioned incident made news headlines, Marriott International reported that more than 50 million guest records were siphoned by hackers over an undetermined period. These reports serve as a strong reminder to Adelanto company owners about business network protection. Cyber security experts are predicting that 2019 will be a very challenging year because cybercrime groups are becoming more sophisticated. Unfortunately, not all Adelanto companies have the means or resources to implement a solid business network protection strategy, and this is where the SonicCare solution provided by Sonic Systems comes into play.
Protecting Local Business Networks
One particular problem related to information security issues is that many Adelanto business owners opt for reactive security services when they should be thinking about preventative measures, which include active monitoring of the server, network traffic, workstation functionality, operating system vulnerabilities, and efficient data backup services.
There is more to Adelanto business network protection than just keeping hackers away; with SonicCare, your company can avoid extended downtime periods caused by neglect. When operating systems and software packages are not routinely patched and updated, networks are bound to become more vulnerable. Whenever an issue is detected, Sonic Systems technicians will not only react accordingly but also send real-time notifications to business owners.
