Stronghold IT Threat Defense
72% of IT security incidents involve a current or former employee
Protecting your network from outside access is a pretty straightforward process and relatively easy to set up for an experienced IT Pro: setup some firewalls, configure some policies on the firewall and server, deploy anti-virus software, etc. But protecting your network from the inside is harder. Employees with malicious intent are looking for ways to steal your data. Less IT savvy employees are clicking things they should not click, and management has adopted “everybody is an admin” and “I trust that person” policy to make their lives easier.
The two most common insider threat scenarios involve perpetrators taking data to start their own competing company (30%), or to help secure employment with a rival (65%).
