There are some optional tools for small to medium businesses and then there are some tools that are absolute musts. Intrusion detection software (IDS) is important, probably more important than ever. Nowadays more people than ever rely on cloud-based tools and storage for their important documents and data and while it’s easy and convenient to make data accessible the right safeguards being put in place is how you’ll make sure it’s only being accessed by the people you want to have access. There are a lot of things going on within your network and if you’re not being proactive about security and intrusion prevention, it could be very costly.
Do your employees have the right safeguards in place when they access information? Think about the fact that data is accessed via a variety of mobile tools (laptops, tablets, mobile phones) and from a variety of mobile places, like hot spots, home Wi-fi networks, and other unsecure networks and consider how vulnerable that can make your network. We’re continually bombarded with messages and spam in our inboxes and on websites we visit and some of it has hidden programs trying to harvest information about you. Secure passwords, solid tools, smart IT policies (that you actually enforce) and helpful reporting can all help you combat intruders who could access your business data as well as use it against you.
What IDS Software Can Do
Intrusion detection software can monitor activities on your network / in your cloud and information gathered can help prevent attacks and security breaches as well as company policy violations. Furthermore, a good tool can also provide you with detailed reporting that can help you with a variety of things above and beyond intrusion prevention. Productivity, content filtering, and other features and associated data can also be helpful in keeping things running smoothly for your business. Whether you want to set policies and forget them or want to be able to, with a few mouse clicks or screen taps, check on things in your network, the right intrusion detection and threat management tool can help immensely.
