5 Types of Security Software Your Business Needs

Data breaches have become increasingly prevalent, and more and more complex. This means that if you’re a business owner working even partially online, you need to get your cybersecurity ducks in a row.

The first step in doing this is to understand—and invest in—the five following types of security software:

  • Antivirus software

Antivirus software will keep all of your devices clean, and the backend of your business website safe. This solution will protect your computers and mobile devices from causing a cyberattack on your site.

  • Anti-spyware software

Spyware is used to snoop on victims’ digital activity and browsing habits. Cybercriminals may use it to access confidential info, including usernames and passwords. Anti-spyware tools can lower your risk.

  • Encryption software

Encryption solutions use algorithms to encrypt files and data. What this means is that even if a cybercriminal intercepts the material, they won’t be able to view it. Talk about protecting your business.

  • Intrusion prevention software

If a cybercriminal wants to take control of your programs or machines, this software will keep them away. These systems prevent threats against specific apps or services by analyzing the traffic that comes in.

  • Firewall

This one’s a double-whammy, as firewalls filter both inbound and outbound data. This type of cybersecurity software keeps unauthorized people from accessing your networks and stealing information.

These solutions are the first line of defense in protecting your business devices and data. With these insights and systems in mind, you can keep your company information safe and secure—and reduce your risk of a breach.
