Now that we live in a world full of subscriptions and cloud services, security is on the rise. Security has always been a hot topic – but in 2015 more so than ever. Since the outbreak of widespread security breaches such as Premera, Target, Ashley Madison, and eBay, it should be no surprise that companies are investing their resources on security.

IT Security

According to Gartner; information security spending will increase by 4.7 percent by the end of 2015.

The cyber security market is estimated to grow $170 billion (USD) by 2020! When it comes to security, think layers. When it’s cold, you layer up. A typical front door consists of a lock on the knob, then a deadbolt – the same applies to IT security. That’s why Fuelled Networks provides a myriad of solutions, such as:

  • Firewalls
  • Anti-virus software
  • Spam filtering software
  • Web content filtering
  • Data backup

The key takeaway is having an experienced engineer who’s on your team, because cyber attacks strike right when you least expect it. Businesses rely heavily on their reputation, and when word spreads–the road to recovery is extremely long.

We recommend proactive and detective measures, and we work alongside our clients to minimize threats. Along with this, it’s recommended that management teams are driving cyber strategies to boost awareness.
