Cyberattacks aren’t going away, likely not ever. Businesses need to stay sharp to avoid falling victim to scammers and hackers who want their sensitive data, money, and control.
Yes, control. Ransomware, in particular, allows hackers to infiltrate a company’s servers and gain control over their IT infrastructure – even the real-world machines they operate.
This compromise can mean that business grinds to a halt, and even more chillingly, the hackers can control anything that a company’s computers can control, from production plant machinery to fuel transport lines and office security devices.
The risk of such an attack is why it’s essential to rely on experts like RDCS to maintain robust cybersecurity. Our cybersecurity services will keep you from experiencing downtime, data leaks, and even more dangerous hacking results like financial information theft or ransomware shutdowns.
No one’s worried about cybersecurity if there’s nothing to keep secure. For businesses like yours, however, your IT infrastructure is so essential that you really can’t operate without it.
Your phones, your workstations, your services, your SaaS products; all of the systems you use every day are tied together in some way. The result of this connectedness is that there are more opportunities for hackers to sneak in than ever before.
However, if you rely on RDCS for your IT and cybersecurity managed services, we know every possible access point bad actors could exploit, and we shut them out. This coverage is one of the benefits of having a single source for your IT needs.
With multiple outside firms and disparate IT professionals, you have the potential for gaps in your protection. At the very least, you’ll spend more time, energy, and money on sealing off those gaps.
Part of RDCS’ cybersecurity services is protecting your network. Network security monitoring ensures you can continue to do business and use your network for its intended purpose without constantly worrying that scammers will try to tap into it. We’ll implement security measures to let the right people in and keep everyone else out:
With our eyes and ears on your network 24/7, you can rest assured that no unauthorized users are getting through. Network security monitoring keeps your data from falling into the hands of hackers.
Success starts with proper setup, and RDCS will make sure your cybersecurity management gets off to the right start. We’ll work with you and your team to ensure that everyone with any level of access to your network gets the proper training in how to identify possible threats such as:
Most hacking isn’t like what you see in Hollywood; instead, it’s guessing passwords, pretending to be co-workers to get information, spoofing the credentials of someone trusted, sending emails with malicious code, or even leaving conveniently placed thumb drives loaded with viruses.
Once your staff is ready to recognize sources of cyber attacks, our network security services and cybersecurity managed services will take over. We’ll ensure you have the right firewalls in place and limit access in key areas.
If you use cloud sharing, online portals, remote desktops, or common video conferencing programs like Skype or Zoom, we’ll get the proper security in place to make sure these don’t become gateways for scammers.
As for your operating systems, hardware, and industry-specific software, we’ll ensure they’re up to date, and there are no known security weaknesses. Our goal is to keep you and your business running smoothly with no downtime, and we recognize that there are times when older pieces of software or hardware are necessary for doing business.
However, when security is paramount, everyone involved must work to find a solution. Isolated computers that aren’t connected to networks can run older software, but a better solution usually involves newer alternatives to older programs and retraining staff to keep abreast of industry advances.
As for RDCS, we take cybersecurity services seriously, and we want to keep your team and its data safe.
Fighting hackers means being ready with ways to clean up their messes. Ideally, a hacker never makes it through the defenses, but there are ways this can happen:
You may even experience natural disasters that wreak havoc on your network and lead to unplanned downtime.
At RDCS, we back up everything you need to keep business running smoothly. This approach means more than just backing up important files; we perform every kind of backup necessary, including full backups of entire systems.
That way, you’re not only preserving files but the state of the operating system, as well. We also perform incremental backups to take into account changes to files as they happen.
As mentioned, one of the most common channels for cyberattacks is through email. Hackers can pose as family, friends, or co-workers by spoofing email addresses and sending messages with malicious code, harmful attachments, or links to websites loaded with malware. With RDCS, you get protection from these spammers.
Our virus, malware, and ransomware protection will provide you with:
You won’t have to guess whether a message was sent from a trusted source. Business email compromise (BEC) attacks rely on holes in a company's email security, but RDCS will make sure you don’t have to worry about such an attack.
As your cybersecurity services provider, RDCS will also assess your remote connection needs. If you run a business that needs lots of remote access – say, if you have employees working in different time zones that still need to collaborate – we’ll get you set up with a secure, encrypted Virtual Private Network (VPN).
With a secure VPN, you can work knowing that no one can eavesdrop on your connection and steal your information. While VPNs use public networks to connect, their data streams are encrypted, ensuring no one can just tap into the stream and grab the data they want.
When you’re looking for cybersecurity services, you might not consider your phones to be something you need to make secure.
However, as more people are working remotely, VoIP, or Voice Over Internet Protocol, has become more popular. This technology involves using your internet service to power your phones. There are many advantages to VoIP, such as easier video conferencing capabilities, reduced costs, less setup time, and greater scalability.
However, as with any service that goes over the internet, VoIP needs to be secure.
With RDCS, you get a cybersecurity services provider that protects your VoIP service, too. Every call and every video conference remain confidential. As your business grows and your VoIP services grow with it, you can rest assured that no new security holes will develop.
Many businesses rely on cloud services these days because they’re just so convenient. Like VoIP and email, being able to get information and communicate anywhere in the world gives businesses the tools they need to behave the same in an office building as they do when spread out over continents.
However, as convenient as cloud services are, they’re hackable, too. This weakness exists whether you use cloud services for data backup, collaboration, communication, or marketing.
WIth RDCS, your cloud services are secure. If you use cloud computing to do data crunching or if your cloud services connect your workstations, we’ll set up virus protection and firewalls to keep scammers away. We’ll set the proper permissions and back up any data stored in the cloud, too. You can trust your data in our hands.
Don’t become a statistic. According to the Identity Theft Resource Center, the number of cyberattacks from January to September 2021 was 17% higher than the total cyberattacks in the entire year of 2020.
Businesses had data stolen, couldn’t access their own networks, and lost millions of dollars in revenue. However, none of this has to happen to you and your business.
RDCS provides complete, comprehensive cybersecurity across every area of your IT infrastructure. Your network, your workstations, your VoIP, your remote connections, and your cloud services will all be secure under our watchful eyes.
On top of that, we will set up your entire IT infrastructure to ensure compatibility and system integrity, so it’s not just protected from cyber attacks but works harmoniously together to enhance productivity.
When you come to RDCS for your cybersecurity, you can trust that your data will be kept safe. You won’t have to suffer productivity-killing downtime due to ransomware, and you’ll be ready to head off hacking attempts.
