Abel Solutions is a premier provider of network security services, even among other internet security companies.
Operating a modern business involves necessarily having a relationship with the internet. The complexity of that relationship — whether as simple as starting a company Facebook page or as complicated as housing all operations on a third-party hosted cloud network — will vary from business to business, yet some form of reliance on the internet is the common denominator. Bad actors abuse this reliance, employing the internet to perpetrate cyber-crimes which regularly target companies. According to Verizon’s 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), 61% of all data breaches into reporting companies were committed against businesses with fewer than 1000 employees. This tendency is because the financial reward for successfully defrauding a business is much greater than what they could get out of most individuals, and yet large corporations have strong security measures in place; naturally they target small businesses for exploitation, as they are often lax and complacent in their security preparations.
Abel Solutions is an internet security provider who helps companies protect themselves from hackers and cyber-criminals. We distinguish ourselves from other internet security companies by taking a multifaceted approach to clients’ security maintenance. By taking a series of steps such as implementing suitable security software, offering network administration services, and educating employees on best practices, we can prepare you to deal with cyber-threats effectively.
A preliminary step we take for client companies is to ensure they are using appropriate security software. Abel offers consulting services where we take a comprehensive look at your network, assess it for security flaws and weaknesses, and deploy the most relevant solution. Soft points of entry, like mobile devices connected to the internet or company network via Wi-Fi, must be carefully protected; web application attacks can be easily executed at these connections and can prove especially detrimental to a victim.
IBM’s Cost of Data Breach Study estimated the average data breach cost companies across the globe $3.6 million in 2017, a devastating figure for a small business. The DBIR found that just over half of all breaches included the use of malware, meaning that those victims were susceptible to attack because of their lacking security software. Abel will find the correct fit for your business to protect your system from intrusion by malware.
Once the proper security software is installed, Abel looks at the health of your network overall. Certain day-to-day maintenance functions, such as patching all add-on software to its most recent update, are regularly overlooked by clients. While this may seem like an unimportant oversight, much of this software has security deficiencies that bad actors have previously taken advantage of to steal companies’ data. Not keeping this software properly patched undermines your network’s security as leaving a busted lock on your back door would undermine your home’s — neither does anything but help would-be intruders. Having an in-house, dedicated network caretaker that sees to these issues may not be practical for certain business structures, however. To meet this need, Abel Solutions can handle this daily task, and others such as granting and revoking permissions to employees, minimizing the network’s downtime, and monitoring the system for early detection of cyber-threats.
Above all else, nothing helps resist a cyber-attack quite like a knowledgeable target. Bad actors target the human element in companies (as opposed to more technical targets) because an uninformed victim can willingly give them the access they need if they use a bit of deception and subtlety. Other security measures cannot protect against human error, and cyber-criminals capitalize on that fact. Understanding the classic indicators of a suspicious email, being aware of the process behind a phishing scam, keeping an eye out for unusual activity, knowing how to respond to each of these warning signs – they can all go a long way in stifling or altogether avoiding a cyber-attack. Abel Solutions will take the time to instruct employees at all levels of the company on what they can do to prevent cyber-threats that come their way.
