Our Blog: Stuff we think you should know

Haber Group has been serving the New York area since 2000, providing IT Support such as technical helpdesk support, computer support, and consulting to small and medium-sized businesses.

The changing face of Security

Introduction

Ah I remember the good old days, when all we needed was a good antivirus on each computer and a basic firewall (or even a home router).

Well, like our youth, those days are behind us.  We live in an ever increasing, ever changing world of security threats to our data and our businesses.  Monetizing cyber-crime has become a huge business! 

When any service-based industry matures, what develops is another industry to service them.  As an example, Haber Group is an IT company that services their clients (the end user) directly.  As our industry has grown and matured, there are now IT companies that have changed their business model to provide services to companies like Haber Group and don’t deal with end users at all.  It’s become the same in the Malware world.  It used to be that hackers and criminals wrote and created their tools.  Today, some kid in eastern Europe only had to download a toolkit and can start creating new viruses/trojans/malware, etc. 

In this article and in future articles we will share our thoughts, experiences and ideas on what you need to know about the technology world that we live and work in.  Some of the topics will be: 

  • Next generation endpoint protection. What you traditionally thought of as your anti-virus
  • Email threat protection. What you traditionally thought of as your anti-spam
  • Gateway Protection. What can be done at the firewall level
  • Two-Factor Authentication (2FA). A password is not enough
  • Protection outside of the firewall

In addition, we’ll be sharing our thoughts on other technologies that impact your business.

  • “The server is dead. Long live the server.”  How the latest cloud file server technologies can impact your workflow and free you from being connected to the office
  • Disaster planning and preventing down time

This is a fascinating, on-going process where we are always evaluating the “state of the technology”.  We continue to update our best practices and what we recommend to our clients.  Overall our goals are to:

  • Increase security
  • Increase functionality and flexibility
  • Reduce/Simplify technology infrastructure
  • Keep costs down

We build the model, test it, implement internally and then bring it to our clients.   If you like hearing about this and want to hear more, let me know.
