With the 24 hour sentinel monitoring, I can sit back and wait on Business Information Solutions to tell me if something needs to be upgraded or if a backup fails. I’m no longer constantly checking for errors and problems on our network and servers.
BIS has made it where I’m not the one having to go around checking each machine to make sure it meets HIPAA laws. That’s what I have BIS for!
Staff morale has gone up because I receive less complaints about our network.
We’ve saved 40-50 hours per month on inside labor since we no longer have to figure out the problem and learn how to fix it.
I don’t know where we would be if Business Information Solutions was not monitoring our system or us. Since going with them, we’ve had NO CRASHES.
With the IT services that Business Information Solutions provides, we no longer have to worry about being ‘down’ for hours or days with issues. Calls and work orders are responded to very quickly and efficiently.
Right now, our nation’s businesses are struggling with hiring good candidates and retaining them. With positions going unfilled and high turnover rates, it can put your business at risk for compliance and security issues.
We’re continuing on with our Tuesday Tech Tip series on Email Security. Today we’re going to talk about Advanced Threat Protection. What is Advanced Threat Protection and how does it protect you? Stay tuned.
So we’re going to talk about Advanced Threat Protection as it pertains to email. Well, first off, this is another service that sits really kind of in front of and even behind, as it relates to sending emails from your email server. From an incoming standpoint, it is scanning every email that comes in. It’s checking it for spam, the IP address where the email is coming from, and also for spoofing and things like that which I will talk about later.
It also checks the links within the email body to say whether they are or are not malicious. Basically, if you thought of it, it clicked the link and saw that where it was going and was safe and there wasn’t any malicious code in it. It does the same thing for attachments. Also, it would allow for some form of encryption on your email.
One thing about encryption is that it’s very important and all of the compliances are requiring it but very few people do it. We have it set up very easily where you can do it manually by simply putting an @ symbol along with the word “secure” in the subject line. By doing this the email automatically goes secure.
Often we don’t think about the files we’re sending and how sensitive information is in that particular email. So you can also set it up to where it will scan the attachment as well as the body, making sure there are no Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, or driver’s license numbers. So you can set it up to where it automatically searches the body and the attachments for content that would be deemed personally identifiable information, and then it would automatically encrypt it.
There are a lot of ways that you can protect this but encryption is one of the very best ways as it relates to the outgoing email. If you have questions or if you’d like to talk about this again, I’ve been really on this email thing because we are seeing such an influx in our environment of people’s emails basically getting hacked, if you will, if you have questions, if you have concerns, if you’d like to discuss this more, I’m always here for you. Thank you for watching.
When it comes to protecting your organization, you need to find a company that has a different mindset & focuses on compliance.
