There are no longer any physical files and folders that can be stolen by a perpetrator who must barge through the gates and beat up the guards to access information. In fact, a perpetrator need not even be physically present to make the theft. All information is digitally encoded and decoded in the form of data, and there is no telling who is gaining access to confidential company information at what opportune moment. It is thus important to ensure a remote monitoring service or software at work at all hours of the day.
Recent advances in computer security technologies have made it possible for system administrators to keep tabs on the exchanges and activities occurring in a particular network of computers. With such efficient technology management in place, business owners can rest assured that company data will not be accessed extraneously.
Network security is not a one-man task.
In fact, it is not even a manual task. Even if there were as many security personnel as there are computers in a company network, there would still be a potential threat emanating from a background infiltration. Only automated network monitoring systems are capable of overseeing a million activities within a network of computers and reporting anything suspicious at the shortest notice.
Remote monitoring can offer business owners and network administrators
Remote monitoring can offer business owners and network administrators the peace of mind they deserve. This process is ‘remote’ in the sense that there will be no in-house security personnel managing the operations within a computer network. If a business hires an IT services company that provides remote monitoring, the latter is not going to place an online security guard in the office. Rather, the IT services company will administer the activities of your computer network using their remote monitoring technology. They will work ‘remotely’ without disrupting the day-to-day operations of the computers, alerting the business authorities only when potential threats are encountered.
The newspapers today are rife with security breaches and anti-hacker crusades.
But it is fair to say the damage has been done once the hacker has trespassed and flouted all ‘secured’ boundaries. The anonymity of the hacker makes it impossible for system administrators as well as cybercrime authorities to track down his location. It is pretty evident that cyber ethics is not enough to prick the conscience of hackers. How can businesses cope with cybersecurity breaches in such potentially vulnerable times? Remote monitoring seems to be the silver lining in the dark ‘clouds’ that threaten us with network security breaches.
