Adding Secure Email and Web Application Protection
Secure Communications for Small and Medium Businesses
According to Verizon’s 2016 Data Breach Investigations Report, more breaches were confirmed among small businesses than large ones. According to a Fortinet study of 1600 cyberthreat assessment, an average of 4 active pieces of malware was found. Regardless of your organization’s size, it is important to cover the primary avenues of cybercriminal attack–the network, application layer, and endpoint layers. This often means adding stronger secure email and web application protection along with your firewall.
With Fortinet’s award-winning Unified Threat Management (UTM) solutions, you introduce essential baseline protection that is top-rated and simplifies your network infrastructure. This security and simplicity help you focus on growing your business instead of managing your network.
However, today’s mature cybercriminal ecosystem and sophisticated threats often require more protection, regardless of organization size. Consider that email is currently the #1 delivery mechanism for an ever-growing number of ransomware families (FortiGuard Labs, 2016). And that the compromised websites and applications are the #1 way into organizations within certain industries like financial services (Verizon, 2016). That’s why the Fortinet Security Fabric and Connected UTM can include dedicated components for secure email and web applications, rightsized for organizations with smaller teams and budgets.
