One of the big things we brought up during our seminar last month was the need to do a few things to protect your systems and lesson your insurance liability: Encrypt your systems, install monitored anti-virus systems, and keep your windows patches up-to-date. Weston can provide all three of those services for you all in one package, and have everything monitored and reported on for compliance. We call it Weston Data Protection. Read on for more information.
Sensitive data is constantly at risk of loss, theft, and exposure. Many times, the data simply walks right out the front door on a laptop or USB device. Or a security hole doesn’t get patched properly. Other times, malware can compromise a system, allowing the outside world access to your data. Companies that suffer such a data loss risk serious consequences, including regulatory penalties (HIPAA, PCI, Sarbanes Oxley, etc…), public disclosure, brand damage, customer distrust, and financial losses. Don’t let your business be one of them. What’s the best way to protect yourself and your systems? Encrypt, protect and patch your systems with Weston Data Protection.
