An advanced form of antivirus and malware management, the system is part of a solution that will address the expected rise in sophisticated AI phishing attacks. It will be valuable for SMEs and those with a hybrid and remote workforce, across sectors including financial services, recruitment, legal and more. Traditionally, antivirus systems have operated in silos, being limited to detecting and responding to threats on individual devices or endpoints. The solution was previously Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR). With the rise in hybrid and remote working and the reliance on networked storage and cloud-based workflows, there is now a need for visibility of threats across a company’s entire IT ecosystem. “In 2023, we expect to see a sharp rise in sophisticated AI-based phishing attacks, as well as endpoint attacks on remote and hybrid workers. The criminals’ focus may change to SMEs as they are believed to have weaker security,” explained Nathan Charles, head of customer experience. “But because we combine our XDR platform with EDR and email management we can fight fire with fire.” To find out more about securyXDR or to book a free thirty-minute demo, visit 14% of Businesses do not have data back-ups! World Backup Day reminds us to keep our data secure. Are you backing up your data regularly? According to a recent survey by YouGov, 14% of UK businesses are not backing up their data at all, and 68% of businesses that experienced a cyber-attack or data breach in the past year lost or had their sensitive information stolen. With hybrid working becoming more prevalent the risk of data loss and theft is higher than ever. Don’t let this happen to you! On World Backup Day, March 31st, take a moment to review your backup strategy and ensure that your data is secure. And if you handle sensitive data regularly, such as in healthcare, finance, legal, or government sectors, Kingston Technology’s VP80ES encrypted SSD drive is an ideal solution. It features military-grade AES-XTS 256bit encryption to protect your data from unauthorized access and is OS independent. It’s recommended to back up your data weekly, and multiple copies of your backups should be stored in different locations to avoid losing everything in case of a natural disaster or theft. Don’t become a statistic. WHAT’S NEW
