A solid data protection strategy takes time, but consider that 57% of data breaches are due to hackers or malware and 23% are caused by unintended disclosure. Securing against these threats is a great place to begin and we work alongside Sophos to recommend three main steps to achieve this.
STOP THE CAUSES OF DATA LOSS
Malicious attacks and accidental loss or theft are two major causes of data breaches.
Sophos Central Device Encryption is the easiest way to manage full disk encryption for all your PCs and Mac computers centrally. Full disk encryption is the most basic form of encryption and it’s widely recommended that all computers use it to protect data at rest. It will keep your data secure in the event that a device is lost or stolen.
Sophos Mobile extends similar protection to data on your mobile devices, and in addition remotely locate, wipe, or lock misplaced devices. You can manage and secure your mobile devices with a minimum of time and effort.
Sophos Intercept X works alongside your existing antivirus protection to provide advanced anti-malware, anti-exploit and anti-ransomware protection – keeping you safe from the latest data-stealing attacks.
All of these solutions are part of Sophos Central, so you have a single, easy-to-use management console with everything you need in one place.
Stop threats at the door
With todays’ increasingly sophisticated and aggressive malware attacks, having a multi-layered security setup that can stop attacks at every level of your network is essential.
Sophos XG Firewall protects your network devices by stopping these attacks at the perimeter, before they get to your devices.
Sophos Email Appliance automatically blocks or encrypts sensitive emails and attachments (e.g. PDFs) ensuring your data is always protected, and suspect emails are stopped before they reach your users’ inboxes.
Stop human error
Most of us have sent an email to the wrong person at some point. But when sensitive data is involved that innocent mistake can become a costly fine.
The file-level encryption delivered by Sophos SafeGuard means that even when data leaves your devices or network (e.g. email attachment, cloud storage) it stays protected – so even if you suffer a data breach the chance of a fine is greatly reduced.
For several years, high-profile data breaches have been hitting the headlines with alarming regularity. Under the GDPR consequences for those involved could have been up to €20m or 4% of annual worldwide turnover, which is significantly higher than previous fines. And it’s important to highlight that it isn’t just big names that are affected, every organisation that holds data on EU citizens has to comply with the regulation.
Ensuring the confidentiality and security of customer data is paramount to achieving this. We alongside Sophos provide encryption and data protection technologies to help your business meet the requirements of the GDPR.
