Cybercriminals do not care about the size of your business. They just look for two factors – Is there money? & How difficult is it to attack the victim's system? This is where Kaspersky security software acts smart to fortify the cyber perimeter for your business protection. Following articles on Kaspersky anti-ransomware solution and Kaspersky endpoint security, in this article, I am going to discuss the features of Kaspersky Small Office Security.

In our previous article, we discussed Kaspersky Anti-ransomware solution for small businesses. As I mentioned - it is not a full-fledged version. For better protection and enhanced security, you need an advanced solution that can understand the critical endpoint security requirements of any business. Kaspersky Endpoint Security can be a perfect fit, especially for small and mid-size businesses. Be it a mobile device or file server, Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud will let you manage all security requirements remotely at any time.

From last couple of years, Anti-ransomware Solution is gaining popularity among cybercriminals primarily because of its capacity to restrict access to important files and sensitive data on a victim’s computer. We can’t forget Wannacry 2017 attack and how badly it exploited many businesses with malicious virus for numerous oganizations across the globe. One year has passed and we’re still in danger of ransomware attack. That’s why Kaspersky Lab has paid close attention to encryptors and decryptors. The experts are working really hard to develop specific tools to counter security threats.

Undoubtedly, Phishing Scam is the most sophisticated cyber-attack from the list of endless security threats. Although it may sound fairly simple, due to its legitimate appearance, it is one of the proven tactics adopted by hackers for duping a victim and capturing his private information. The attacker masquerades himself as a trusted entity that you may think is harmless, for instance; a request from his bank or a note from a company ID to click a link or download an attachment.

With more data and systems on the Cloud, network security has become more important than ever. A recent RightScale 2018 State of the Cloud survey reports 96% respondents use cloud services of which 81% respondents have a multi-cloud strategy (Survey was done on 997 tech pros). These statistics clearly point to the fact that most companies are using one or other form of Cloud network. Switching to the Cloud can boost your business efficiency and scalability but it can also invite some risks like network security or downtime concern. If your network goes down, a business can’t function. So, how can you streamline your business operations to stay productive while on Cloud? Let’s look at this:

Ever thought how downtime can hurt your business, especially because of an IT issue? For years, one universal standard to measure downtime is calculating the “cost to business”. However, the overall loss to the business is much bigger than we can actually see. The impact of a single IT failure on the top or bottom line of a business cannot be measured by just calculating the loss to revenue. Many business owners claim that they can afford to go down for an extended period, neglecting to consider consequences like reduced profitability and total business failure. But the truth is that no business owner wants to see the downtime. In order to understand this, let’s calculate how costly a single downtime event can cost your business.

We are producing more data than ever before. According to computer giant IBM, more than 2.5 quintillion bytes is produced every day and it’s growing fast. There were an estimated 6.4 billion connected “things” in 2016, up 30% from the previous year. We are also continuously sending and receiving data over digital networks. This unstoppable growth is unsustainable if we don’t act smart and manage the chunks of Big data that we all produce, store, and constantly share.

Did you know a lot of people have lost Bitcoins worth in tens of thousands of Dollars which could have been prevented by proper safety precautions? Because of popularity, you need to focus on security measures to keep your wallets and investment portfolios safe. Think of it, if you have a weak link in your crypto security, it wouldn’t take much to hack the wallet and move your assets.

Spyware, Ransomware, Malware, Keyloggers, Scareware… there are endless names of cybercriminals who are constantly searching for their next big target. It seems like these malicious software/programs lurk around every corner of the internet. Be it threatening email attachment, false advertisements or any pop-up message, cybercriminals find the subtle way every time to reach their target and steal personal information/data. As you are aligning for growth in 2018 are you also equipped to fight against growing cyber attacks?

We’ve already stepped into 2018 and this is the time to thinking about upcoming plans, business growth and targets to achieve in 2018. But how can you ensure that your business is ready to scale for growth in 2018? That’s why I have put together a business guide that plans out the IT infrastructure needed for your business. Let’s begin by thinking what are the top 5 things/resources to equip your business for seamless, hassle-free operations.
