As businesses have evolved over the last 50 years, so have the security threats that they are faced with. Thieves no longer just look like people in black ski masks with a gun demanding that you open your cash register, cyber-attacks are happening every day and can cost your business much more than a robbery can. Cyber-attacks can put your entire business at stake if you are not careful. These attacks can be centered around finding out the credit card data of your customers or they can be used to find out intimate information about your business that can be sold to the highest bidder. This can lead to your proprietary information being made public and allows anyone to just copy your business plan and steal your potential customers. However, there are a lot of companies that do not take cyber security serious enough and figure that they are too small to be targeted. While this may seem like it has held true, within the next few years this won’t be the case. Cyber criminals will begin taking more risks on smaller companies, hoping that they grow into a huge data farm for them.
This is why products like the Cisco Meraki system are so important. They are designed for small to medium size businesses that might not have the capital available for a full enterprise level network security system. The Cisco Meraki system allows them to keep their network safe and secure at a fraction of the cost of a traditional system. The system is also extremely easy to manage so your business would not need to hire any IT staff to manage it for you. Not only does the system allow you to apply security settings to any connected devices but it also allows you to see when new devices try to connect to your account.
The Meraki system is perfect for small businesses that are serious about cyber security.
