A hacker sees a device as a node on a network, they don’t care what size the network is or the turnover of the company that their automatic software attacks they just want to be paid for hacking.

But the most important security your business has are its people and the processes you adopt – basic simple security steps are far more effective than the latest bleeding edge security.

At ekte we do think Chromebooks and the Google Security ecosystem is the best thing since sliced bread. However, it only protects the end point and data in Googleland – who is protecting your network and why is the Coffee Machine actually on the network?
Well, the wonderful world of 5G will enable everything to talk to everything else. In techie its known as IOT or ‘Internet of Things’, which means that when your coffee machine is out of coffee it contacts Amazon and re-orders it for you – the coffee refills arrive before you are even awake enough to realise you needed them. Brilliant, but, if your coffee machine can talk to your network and use credit card details to pay for items, then an unscrupulous actor (as they are called – no, no idea either – ‘actor’ they are on a stage not in a darkened room eating pizza – nevermind) can take over your coffee machine and use it to hop around your network and cause damage to your documents and bottom line by stealing from you or forcing you to pay a ransom.
Zero trust is precisely that, nothing is trusted and no devices can talk to anything on or off the network that they should not – so the IOT becomes the Internet of things doing what I have allowed them to do not what they want to
During Covid, by necessity companies have had to have employees working from home. This introduces risk to the security of your corporate network as everyone logs on remotely via a VPN or ZTNA methodology.
ekte appreciates that with enforced lockdown and revenue plummeting, paying extra for an IT Audit is the last thing management is thinking about. Imagine surviving the nightmares of Covid and the ever changing advice only to be brought to your knees by a hacker.
Let ekte undertake a free of charge Audit of your network and no, this is not a philanthropic offer. Yes, it’s free, but our hope is that by helping you know when things are difficult, when the pain of this Covid shutdown is over and your company once again starts to prosper you will continue to work with us.
The Security Audit will show weaknesses in your network defence, GDPR issues, compromised passwords, open ports and other vulnerabilities that will help you gain control of the situation and ensure your data remains secure.
