The need for strong data security measures is critical. Small businesses and retailers are particularly vulnerable to attacks causing loss of business and reputation.

eMazzanti Technologies, a NYC area IT security consultant and managed services provider (MSP), outlines the benefits of remotely managed and monitored data security solutions, including managed firewall services, in a new article geared toward small and mid-size businesses (SMBs) and retailers.

“The need for strong data security measures is critical,” said Jennifer Mazzanti, President, eMazzanti Technologies. “Small businesses and retailers are particularly vulnerable to attacks causing loss of business and reputation.”

Below are a few excerpts from the article “Why Retailers and SMBs Should Use a Managed Firewall Service”. Read the full article here.

“With today’s increasing data security threats, small and medium-sized enterprises
(SMEs) are faced with the usual cost versus reliability decision when purchasing data security. And, depending on their business requirements for uptime, their industry, and the potential effects of a data security breach, they may prefer one over the other.”

“When it comes to protecting networks and data, companies can choose increased security, uptime, customer satisfaction and peace of mind by partnering with an IT security expert for a managed firewall service, or they can choose to go it alone to implement data security measures.”

“When thinking about data security, business leaders should ask themselves these important questions?

  •     How much downtime can I afford?
  •     What are the long-term consequences of a security breach or downtime?
  •     What is the effect on customer loyalty and sales when systems are unavailable?
  •     Are PCI or other compliance measures required?
  •     How will I keep my data security up to date?

When should an enterprise look seriously at a managed firewall service? When they know that any downtime or loss of customer data is unacceptable.”

“Firewall management requires a high level of expertise to prevent unauthorized access and costly data security breaches. Network traffic must be monitored continuously to identify and respond appropriately to threats to prevent data loss, downtime and other damage.”
