While there are many different cybersecurity strategies your business can employ in order to protect your website and its data from external dangers like cyberattacks, an adaptive defense cybersecurity system is almost always the best choice (especially for a young company). Cybersecurity threats are everywhere, from large-scale denial-of-service attacks that take down your website to casual hints about upcoming products that may be leaked from an employee’s handheld device.
Why Choose an Adaptive Defense System?
Cyber threats are never stagnant. Just like the viruses that affect your human body may become stronger over the years as they fight against your immune system, cyber threats are constantly adapting to search for signs of weakness in your security system. If your cybersecurity system undergoes a vulnerability assessment and is due for an upgrade, this does not mean that your former system was worthless. Simply, it is important to upgrade your security measures regularly to ensure that you are thoughtfully preparing to protect the data of your company, your employees, and your customer base.
Adaptive security measures can help you monitor your network security in real-time for any suspected cyber threats, not to mention any overlooked vulnerabilities in your system. When threats are detected, an adaptive defense system can counter the threat quickly and effectively.
How Does an Adaptive Defense System Work?
An adaptive defense system is multi-layered. Each layer of the adaptive defense system scans for threats in a slightly different way than the one before it to ensure that every signal that comes into the system is thoroughly investigated and deemed safe before it reaches your company. Additionally, if any cyberattacks do get through, then an adaptive defense system can undergo a retrospective analysis which will provide the IT team with the needed information to prepare for and prevent future similar attacks.
You can envision an adaptive defense system like a sponge. Even if a cybersecurity attack does manage to get through to your company, then a multi-layered defense system should absorb most of the damage before it happens. Any attacks that manage to slip past your security system will be much smaller threats that a skilled IT team should be able to handle, especially with the aid of a qualified cybersecurity consultant.
An adaptive defense system uses cloud security to defend from common web hacking techniques (such as SQL injection) to more complex systems that are sneaking through the online world all the time. For increased security, always check for services that offer local encryption (and decryption) of your files, in addition to storing them and creating backup copies. If someone hopes to steal your data (such as customer’s passwords), simply having a backup copy of that data won’t prevent it from being stolen. Use cloud security services that can encrypt sensitive data.
Not only does an adaptive defense system protect your data from cyberattacks, but it also prevents files from growing outdated and becoming corrupted as you upgrade your operating systems.
