An MSP’s Services Protect More than Digital Assets

When you think about your data security, what kind of solutions pop into mind? If you’re like many, you probably start thinking about passwords, firewalls, and antivirus, right? While these are all good things to have, you also have to consider the possibility that someone could break into your office and bypass all of these defenses, simply by picking up your server and walking out.

Unless you have a troll or something guarding your front door, a password isn’t going to do much to stop them.

You need to consider, and then reconsider, how comprehensive your security really is as the new year begins. With the prevalence of cyberthreats in the public consciousness, it can be easy to forget that some criminals like to do things the old-fashioned way.

You also need to acknowledge that you may have a few bad apples in your bushel of employees. While your digital security solutions may help you to identify them after the fact, the right physical security measures may be enough to deter them from trying anything at all. The key here is using both access control and access monitoring solutions, or a solution that offers both functionalities.

The reasons for this two-pronged approach are simple.

On the one hand, it is good to know that the access to your data is limited to those who should be able to access it. This is why we recommend that you protect your business with tiered permissions, based on role.

On the other hand, it’s also good to know that you can be aware of who it is that is accessing your business and its assets, and when they are doing so.

Let’s look at an example of why.

Let’s say that you have your business’ financial information saved away, deep in the recesses of your storage and under heavy protections. Access control means that only the select few with permission can access it, which is a great start. However, access control wouldn’t let you know that it was being accessed at one in the morning, and by whom. Access monitoring would.

So, if you suddenly find that something expensive has gone missing, you could check your logs to find out who your likely culprits are, and why. The same could be said of missing cash, for businesses that deal with physical payments.

While it’s good to know that your business’ data isn’t going to be stolen by someone miles away, it’s still good to know that your business itself is still secure as well. We can do both. To learn more about what else Haber Group can do to help ensure your security, reach out at 866.625.3560.
