Take Control of your Network Security

Many of the SMB's have the mentality "we are too small to get cyber-attacks”, focusing on internet speed rather than security. As reported on enterprise.verizon.com, 43% of breach victims are small businesses. According to inc.com 60% of small businesses that are victims of a cyber-attack go out of business within six months. It is just a matter of time. If something is going to happen, eventually you need to have that protection to be able to protect your business. Tri Nguyen, Market Development Manager at Zyxel Networks says, "The attackers or the malware they don't really care if you're a small business or you're a corporation, it will just try to attach itself. It will try to find vulnerabilities that can be utilized to additional means. They are just trying to find host sometimes to find other ways to use your machine or user network to get access to other things."
