Cybersecurity

Cybercrime is on the rise.

Unfortunately, a lot of businesses focus only on prevention efforts with security budgets still funneled towards outdated solutions such as firewalls and virus protection.

Cybercriminals continue to evolve by constantly developing new strategies to bypass old preventative defenses. From mobile malware and ransomware to automated intrusion tools and “bots”, cybercriminals find ways to exploit every possible vulnerability and thwart these protections.

At the Forefront of Security

STL’s cybersecurity emphasis is on early detection and response rather than building barricades—barricades that no longer stop anyone. This methodology combines a strong security posture with a formal incident response plan, greatly reducing the odds, and the average cost, of a data breach.

In a landscape where the question of attack isn’t IF—but WHEN—every organization’s future will be determined by the speed with which it can detect attacks and respond to intruders.

Our tiered Cybersecurity Services offer businesses practical solutions that address this challenge and be tailored to their assets, potential exposure, and tolerance for risk.

Current realities, as reported in credible surveys and news media over the past few years:

  • 90% of businesses have experienced some level of cyber attack and nearly 50% have suffered damage as a result.
  • The average cost of an incident starts at $38,000 for the smallest business and goes up to $500,000 or more for enterprises.
  • Malicious or criminal attacks are the main players when damage occurs—rather than negligence or system glitches—and very few in-house IT departments or managed services providers are equipped to handle the attacks.
  • Malware can sit dormant for up to 250 days before being activated, and it can take 14 months for a firm to detect it.

Technically speaking, I like the wide range of abilities offered for most any situation I run into that needs assistance above my capability.

Service for outdated or for new products and server issues, have been extremely appreciated.
