As part of our mini-series on How To Boost Your Cybersecurity in 2021, we're sharing some of our top ways to strengthen your cybersecurity.
Over the last few weeks, we've shared blogs on how to boost your cybersecurity with little to no cost, plus some cybersecurity measures worth your time in 2021.
This time, we're looking at the cybersecurity investments that will be worth your money in the long run.
Investing in antivirus software is essential for your business, whatever size you are.
Of course, there are free antivirus programmes out there, but paid-for versions have a more comprehensive level of protection against a broader range of malicious activity.
In the long run, this gives your business better protection against viruses, malware, phishing scams and spyware.
Working from home has obviously been a huge part of 2020, and many companies have invested in quality VPNs to ensure their business data is secure as staff work from home WiFi networks.
If you’ve not looked into VPNs, now is your chance to get clued up.
A VPN scrambles the information sent between your device and the websites you visit, kind of like a secure tunnel that makes it difficult for hackers to access your data and monitor your online activity.
By using a VPN, you can make sure your data stays secure and isn’t relying on the security (or perhaps lack of) of your staff’s personal WiFi.

Managed IT Services.
An increasingly common way businesses are saving money and time with their IT is investing in Managed Services providers.

On top of ensuring you’re cybersecurity is up to scratch, the IT experts can also help boost your team’s productivity by recommending industry-standard software, best practices and more, always making sure you’re spending your money in the right areas. They’re also on hand to make sure you’re software is up-to-date and backups are running smoothly.
