How Thrive’s Layered Cyber Security Bundle Protects Your Data

Today, it’s hard to go more than a few days without hearing of some sort of cyber security issue or breach on the news. Cyber security isn’t just a “set it and forget it” type of endeavor — it’s something that requires planning, detail, and attention.

Thrive’s Cyber Security Bundle leverages best-in-class technologies to educate and ultimately protect end users. We’ve worked hard to protect businesses and organizations by preparing a multi-layered cyber security plan that mitigates the enormous consequences a data hack can have.

Protect Against a Potential Data Breach

Data breaches affect organizations in many ways, both monetarily and psychologically. It’s possible the issue may be smaller in nature; perhaps an employee’s laptop is infected with ransomware, causing a lost day of work or decrease in productivity. The employee may have had personal information on that laptop, even if it was a work-issued device.

If a large-scale database hack were to happen, that personal information exposure may be more widespread. The database could hold valuable client information, including usernames, e-mail addresses, and phone numbers, and the PR ramifications can be immense.

No solution provider can promise organizations they will never be breached. A company that stays in business long enough may deal with a cyber security issue at some point, but it’s imperative to create layers of security to protect the organization.

Just five years ago, it was widely believed antivirus software on a workstation and a firewall would do the job. Today, with many people working from home, the firewall idles in the office while antivirus protection only does so much. More specifically, signature-based antivirus protection may not catch a malicious file, which is why we look at anomaly-based antivirus protection while adding a cyber security bundle to deliver best-in-class endpoint security.

Targeted Cyber Security Training That Informs

Thrive’s Cyber Security Bundle offers protection for end users against:

  • Malware
  • Social engineering
  • Phishing
  • Ransomware

One of the top bundle benefits is the targeted training it provides for employees. It’s easy to tell someone not to click on a phishing email, but is that practice being followed? Thrive sends simulated phishing messages, changing the patterns and language to make each one a challenge. While we do inform organizations that these simulated phishing exercises exist, they are designed to mimic the real thing. This is all in the name of better informing end users so they can easily pick up on real phishing attacks.

We devise quarterly training for organizations through videos, too. These videos are short, typically around five to 15 minutes in length, and discuss important topics like what phishing emails look like, social engineering, and how to create strong passwords. Security and IT can have a negative connotation and imply a broken process that needs fixing, but these training videos open the lines of communication and provide end users with the information they need.

Educating and protecting end users mitigates data and productivity loss, which is why Thrive offers end user security solutions through our Cyber Security Bundles. Find the right fit and bring your cyber security practices up to speed today!
