Cyber Security for Small Business

1. Feature

The Dimatas Technologies CyberSecurity solution is a cloud based comprehensive network and web site security solution. It is designed to be used by a non-technical person. The platform provides monitoring, performance, security and analytics for websites and networks.

Since this is a cloud based solution, no software is required. The user can access the system via any web browser.

No technical knowledge is required. The platform is designed to be easy to use by anyone with basic computer skills via a simple graphical user interface (GUI),

This software is useful for anyone with a web-presence. It is especially beneficial for web sites that offer e-commerce to customers since down time means lost revenue.

For small businesses, their web site is their primary marketing tool – if it is not operational, the business will not be able to communicate with customers, resulting in lost sales.

The Dimatas Technologies platform allows users to perform several operations to reduce these risks. Store, for example, checking the website’s availability and content.

Hackers do not check a website to judge its size. They run automated software and crash the website for their amusement or to steal data. Further, as a provider of e-commerce services, you are responsible for the security of your customer’s data.

  • In 2014, 60% of small businesses experienced a cyber breach. The average cost of the worst breach was £65,000- £115,000 (Source: www.gov.uk)
  • Nearly 72% of data breaches investigated by Verizon Communications’ forensic analysis unit in 20111 were at companies with less than 100 employees.
  • The financial impact of these incursions is enormous - reports estimate the cost of global cybercrime at $114 billion annually.

Some examples of common cyber threats include:

  • Changing the site content.
  • Launching a denial of Service (DoS) attack that would prohibit visitors.
  • Infiltrating the website using an open or unused port.

Definitely! E-tailers have much more at risk. For example, it is possible for hackers to exploit vulnerabilities in your site to access sensitive information such as customer files containing credit card information.

Services included with this offering include: 1) Content monitoring, 2) SSL verification, 3) Port monitoring, 4) Malicious activity monitoring, 5) Cybersecurity alerting, 6) Cybersecurity threat reporting, and 7) Performance reporting.

Additional details are available on the Services for Small Businesses page.

These services reduce your risk of cyber attack and improve your web site’s performance.

These services guard your site against brute force attacks that can breach your site to alter its content or access files via open ports.

Yes. Once you have registered, you merely identify the web sites you wish to protect. Alerts and reports are sent to you automatically.

Unfortunately, there are no fail-safe measures to protect small business from a determined cyberattack. However, using Dimatas Technology’s Basic Service provides a significant measure of protection against these threats.

In addition to the cyber security features of the Basic Service, Dimatas Technology’s Premium Service adds tools to help Improve website performance and website vulnerability as per nist.gov. It also provides users with advanced reporting capabilities allowing them to better manage their cyber security features.

The founders of Dimatas Technologies have extensive experience in cybersecurity, primarily from developing solutions for large enterprises. Recognizing that these solutions were not appropriate for small businesses, they developed a customer set of services targeted to the needs and budget constraints of small businesses. Their solutions are web-based, so they it is not necessary to install cybersecurity appliances on the customer’s premises, reducing cost and complexity. Pricing for Dimatas Technologies services is also structured to reflect the budget constraints of small businesses, who can obtain some measure of protection for no cast at all. For those wishing to reduce their risk further, a low-cost option is available. And for small businesses that wish to maximize their protection, Dimatas Technologies will develop a custom solution to address these needs.

Rather than thinking solely about protection, website managers need to think about protection, detection, and response. Further, they need to use automated tools to monitor their websites continually for signs of vulnerability or attack and ensure that those attacks will be blocked.

Dimatas’ CyberSecurity Consulting Service is customized to the needs of your small businesses. Through an information-gathering process, critical information about you company’s operation and policies is first collected. This information is then processed using IBM Watson Analytics to identify security weaknesses and potential breaches. The results of this analysis enable small businesses to reduce their overall security risk by implementing its customized recommendations.
