Cybersecurity

Cybercrime is on the rise.

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 Security budgets are still funneled towards outdated solutions such as firewalls and virus protection.

From malware and ransomware to automated intrusion tools and “bots", cybercriminals continuously evolve by developing new strategies to bypass preventative defenses. 

At the Forefront of Security

STL’s cybersecurity emphasis is on early detection and response rather than building barricades that no longer stop hackers. We combine a strong security posture with a formal incident response plan. Hence, this greatly reduces 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.

Our tiered Cybersecurity Services offer solutions tailored to business critical assets, potential exposure, and risk tolerance.

Finally, here is a list of 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.
  • When damage occurs, malicious or criminal attacks are the main culprits, rather than employee negligence or system glitches. 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Service for outdated or for new products and server issues, have been extremely appreciated.
