A firewall is no longer enough.
Today’s security threats are sophisticated, pervasive, potent and ever-evolving. A firewall – even a next-generation firewall – is no longer enough to protect you from cyber-criminals.
Did you know that there are over 300,000 open positions for cybersecurity professionals in the United States? In Kansas, there are over 1,700 open positions and in Missouri there are over 5,300 open positions. Take a look at this heat map of those open positions posted across the country.
It’s hard to hire cybersecurity professionals.
There’s an unprecedented need for this technical skill set that’s not being met. And it’s hard to hire these kinds of employees because of the high level of competition in the market.
As a result, many organizations are outsourcing their cybersecurity needs. Sadly, many small businesses have little or no protection against cybersecurity threats. A big reason for this is that it’s been cost prohibitive to solve the problem… until now. Avid CyberSecurity is an affordable add-on for existing customers, and is available as a stand-alone service for new customers.
How Avid CyberSecurity Works
Avid CyberSecurity stops threats with a comprehensive and sophisticated approach that employs equipment, event logging and artificial intelligence to detect activity that even a next-generation firewall – acting alone – cannot.
We work with your IT provider to design and implement a comprehensive cybersecurity plan that will safeguard your on-premise network, cloud-based applications and mobile devices. And because we apply best practices learned from years of managing thousands of client networks, we are able to deliver truly affordable protection for businesses who don’t have their own cybersecurity staff.
Our security operations center monitors your network 24×7. When we detect a threat – and our AI-driven system processes a vast amount of information to find threats that others cannot – we take immediate action to defuse that threat.
You don’t know what you don’t know.
Let’s sit down and talk about what you are currently doing to protect your business from cybersecurity threats. And together we will find the gaps and work towards a reasonable solution. To get started, call us at 816.994.7070.
