Online security becoming more important for small businesses


A new security product is now available for small businesses seeking extra protection against malware and hackers.

Created for many small businesses that are targeted by hackers, the small business firewall gives SMBs an all-in-one solution for security.

"Hackers go after small businesses because they tend to have either outdated security systems or consumer-grade endpoint protection, which makes them easy targets," said Tim Helming, director of product management at WatchGuard Technologies.

With the new product, small business will have a better line of defense against malware and hacker prevention. Businesses using the new product will have the latest in intrusion prevention, spam-blocking and gateway anti-virus, which reduces the possibility of cybercrime.

While this new product can give small businesses a sense of protection, a professional liability insurance policy is another way businesses can feel safe from the perils of cybercrime and security hacking.

According to SouthCoastToday, online security is just as important for small businesses as it is for larger firms.

The news source said to counter the issue of cybercrime, the Federal Communications Commission launched the Small Biz Cyber Planner, which gives small businesses the ability to shape their own security plans.
