Many companies enjoy a false sense of security, according to the results of Solarwinds MSP’s 2017 survey of 400 SMBs in the UK and US.
Their study found that “87% of organizations have complete trust in their security techniques and technology.”
Here’s the real shocker: 71% of those same companies had been breached in the past 12 months. (41% of them were hacked 4 or more times!)
More than that, less than 50% of the companies implemented new security technologies after being compromised.
The breaches had a serious impact on the companies, according to the survey. 77% of those hacked reported tangible losses like lost customers, legal fees, and other monetary costs. 23% reported intangible loss, like a hit to brand reputation.
27% of the companies had breaches linked to ransomware, 33% were linked to DDoS attacks, 31% resulted from accidental acts like exposure of confidential data, 37% were insider malicious acts, and 10% were linked to theft or loss of hardware containing sensitive data.
Many of these problems are easily solved by Evizone’s two products – Evizone Secure Communications (ESC) and Evizone Communications Governance (ECG).
With a safe communications platform like ESC, the issues that plague emails become non-existent. With our patented technology, there is no risk of ransomware or other phishing schemes that have caused unnecessary damage to businesses around the world.
ECG, on the other hand, offers protection for all your most sensitive files. No longer do you have to worry about clumsy or rogue employees. All data is stored on military-grade secure servers with complete accountability tracking. If someone accidentally deletes a file, it is easily traceable and restorable. If a phone or computer gets stolen, that’s not a problem either – no data is ever stored on devices, it is always securely held in our systems. With access limitations, you don’t need to worry about anyone downloading information onto unsecure devices.
Until companies admit that they’re at risk, the breaches will continue to happen in growing numbers. For those serious about security, give us a call.
