HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. - Jan. 24, 2020 - PRLog -- In today's day and age, the selection of internet and network security products available to businesses of all sizes is vast, but that does not negate threats like viruses, phishing scams, and ransomware - especially for small business. Pennyrile Technologies, a leading provider of managed IT services, consulting, and support, provides its clients with a variety of advice and protections designed to prevent such attacks and improve network security.

The Data Breach Investigation Report was put together by Verizon in 2019 and shows a startling statistic - 43% of all cyberattacks target SMBs. There are many reasons for this, but there's one reason that truly stands out - cybercriminals know that smaller businesses tend to have more lax security measures in place, which makes their networks easier to breach. Whether these criminals want to get their hands on personal information for identity theft purposes or simply attack a network to render data unacceptable, small businesses are their favorite targets because their networks are statistically less secure. When this is compared with yet another statistic showing that 54% of SMBs believe their businesses are too small to be victimized (per the Keeper Security/Ponemon Institute), it becomes very clear that small businesses must take additional measures to protect their data.

Pennyrile Technologies specializes in providing managed IT and IT consulting services, but they also provide a wide range of products that were designed with SMBs in mind. These include everything from password policies and security patches to advanced endpoint security, firewalls, and disaster recovery services, all of which play critical roles in not only preventing viruses and ransomware attacks, but also in minimizing the downtime and cost associated with them.

Aside from this, the experts at Pennyrile Technologies also recommend regular training on the importance of email security. Symantec's 2019 Internet Security Threat Report found that one in every 323 emails sent to small businesses or their employees is malicious in some way, whether that means email malware, ransomware, or even phishing. Employees must remain diligent in protecting themselves and the business, and business owners and managers must remain diligent when it comes to email security software.

You can also schedule a completely free network security assessment to determine your level of risk and better understand the right ways to keep your data more secure.
