If you have had problems with viruses and server intrusions on your commercial computer network, and you want to make sure that your network is safe, there are some extra precautions you can take. You can work with your network provider or server host, install threat detection software, and use personal identity protection to get the protection you need.
Entering the wrong site or being careless could put your entire network at risk. Protecting your internet and computers is imperative for privacy and for the safety of your staff and customers. Here are a few things you'll want to consider for your business.
Have the network administrators or your server service provider monitor your network occasionally to see what the staff is doing and if they are entering any websites that could potentially be dangerous or risky. You can have the settings controlled so that certain sites are blocked, or that warnings appear, but sometimes you need supervision to catch everything that could be going on. Some of your staff may not even know what sites are risky or that they are doing things that compromise your business security.
Threat Detection Software
You can have threat detection software installed on all of the computers throughout the building. This software will detect if someone is trying to break into personal files, or if a virus is trying to get into the system. This can prevent the system from crashing or people from getting hacked, and it's a great preventative option for your business.
Personal Identity Protection
If the people in your office like to check their online banking accounts on their work computers, or even on their phone while using your Wi-Fi, it may be best to get an identity protection package for the business files and for your staff. This is to ensure that your business accounts don't get hacked, and it protects the identity of everyone in the office.
There are online predators everywhere that may want to get money or information from your server, or they may just want to use a virus to destroy your system. Use these different preventative options to make sure that your computers and the network are safe at all times, and make sure your staff knows what they should and shouldn't be doing to keep the network safe. Your IT team should be able to help you with these preventative measures.
