The number and complexity of threat vectors has never been greater, while gaps in relevant skills and budget continue to grow. Exploits, malware (including ransomware), and botnets continue to top the charts as the main methods of attack, but the actual attacker profile gets larger and stranger every day.

Securing Your Business
Endpoint Security & Mobile Device Management
In the constant arms race between bad actors and security technology, the notion of slapping an antivirus onto a PC and calling it safe has become obsolete.
Today, layered, unified threat management allows organizations to secure and review all connected devices in their environment, from the personal phone your salesperson uses to connect to the company wifi to the executive laptop on the boss’ desk.
Broadview Networks has built a managed antivirus solution which, when incorporated with an effective firewall and security policy, will protect your devices with ESET Endpoint Anti-Virus Workstation Protection.
Additionally, we will provide notifications when a device is compromised so action can be taken quickly – something that traditional AV offerings don’t do. We also only bill for actual use – if a staff member leaves, you don’t need to keep paying for the coverage of their machine.
Datacentre & Cloud Security
Threats are layered. So should be a strong security profile. At the datacentre level, that includes good firewalls that don’t bottleneck internet traffic, and at the cloud level that includes knowing where your data’s being stored and where it’s allowed to travel.
Broadview Networks has partnered with Fortinet and Microsoft to present best-in-class security solutions at both the datacentre and cloud levels, which are easy to manage and cost-effective to deploy.
Ransomware & 2-Factor Authentication
Datto’s SIRIS line as an excellent method of data protection from ransomware and other threats, but even the best solutions are never one-size-fits-all. People make mistakes, and even if they don’t, it’s difficult to be proactive when it comes to security.
That’s where 2-factor authentication (or 2FA) comes in. This security process builds in an extra layer of consent for the user – simply stealing their password or in some cases even using their device or profile is no longer enough to hijack data.
As users are the weakest link of any security policy, 2FA is a fantastic tool for securing your environments at the most critical passes, and allowing your IT manager to sleep more easily at night.
Virtual Security Officer
In an organization, a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) is responsible for IT security, strategy, design, and implementation with a focus on properly addressing cyber security risks. The CISO is charged with regulatory and operational compliance to all standards and regulations related to and required for the business, risk management, helping to achieve KPI’s, and more.
In today’s constantly evolving cyber threat landscape, employing the services of a CISO or an IT Security Expert helps ensure that your security policy remains in-step with the very quickly changing world of digital threats.
But a full-time CISO is expensive, and a lot of organizations just can’t justify the expense. For those small-to-medium business clients who need a cost-effective alternative, or if you’re just looking for an expert temporarily (a project, upcoming audit, etc), we can provide you with the guidance of a seasoned professional without the expense or recruitment investment.
Above all else, no matter how impressive your security, no matter how much expertise you invest in crafting the best policies, nothing protects your business better than well-informed users.
Broadview Academy can teach email and web best practices, show staff how to identify threat vectors like infected attachments or spearphishing attempts, and what to look out for when they’re online.
Training for IT professionals is also available to keep the skills of your in-house IT staff sharp and current.
