As a small business owner, you have a lot to think about, especially now in the midst of the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. While you have the best interests of your family and employees at heart at times like this, unfortunately, there are people who can bring harm to your business when you are most vulnerable. Cyber attacks by online hackers attempting to gain access to business data are on the rise and their targets are not limited to large, Fortune 500 companies.
Nearly two-thirds of all cyber crime victims are unsuspecting small businesses with an average cost of $3 million in losses per attack. The reason? Small businesses typically have less access to security experts, resources and infrastructure than their larger corporate counterparts. With 80 percent of company tasks now conducted on mobile devices, small business owners like you are even more susceptible to online threats. How can you protect valuable company and client data on the mobile devices you and your team use for work every day?
Web.com’s Cyber Security Solution provides your small business with protection and support to safeguard your mobile devices and data from cyber threats.

It offers protection against common cyber attacks, such as phishing scams, malicious websites and malware, as well as stolen usernames and passwords, debit or credit card fraud and identity theft.

When you and your employees use mobile devices for job-related activities, you need to know you are accessing information in a safe, protected environment. To provide a secure user experience, Cyber Security Solution monitors to ensure that you and your team are utilizing the latest operating system and have a passcode set to prevent outsiders from accessing the mobile device.
To promote safe internet browsing, Cyber Security Solution features a Virtual Private Network (VPN) that offers a secure and private connection to prevent hackers from using malicious websites to gain access to your private data. It constantly scans URL addresses associated with the web pages you are viewing and flags any suspicious behavior, in addition to monitoring your emails and text messages.
You and your team can use public and private WiFi with confidence with this feature that scans networks for threats. You will receive alerts when a network you join is potentially dangerous or under attack to help protect your personal and business data. This means, wherever you go, you’ll know you have safe, secure access to your mobile device information.
Small business data “breaches,” in which hackers gain access to business information through apps, increased by nearly 425 percent in 2018. To help prevent this from happening to your business, Cyber Security Solution scans mobile apps for viruses and spyware and protects against threats. Should a breach occur, you will be notified so you can take immediate action.
If your mobile device is lost or stolen, Cyber Security Solution tools can help you find it with an email alert that includes a map of its location. In addition, you can remotely lock or clear your mobile device and trigger it to shoot a photo and email it to you to help you determine who may have it.
