Prevent and Reduce Risk of Devastating Cyber Attacks With Our Proven Solutions

AiPadRetina cyber attack is a bad word for businesses and organizations for good reason, as the definition states: an attempt by hackers to damage or destroy a computer or system. Obviously, some industries and organizations are going to be more at risk than others, yet all businesses are at some risk. Whether the hackers are trying to steal identities, money, or simply destroying a reputation – all businesses have to guard against cyber attacks. Small businesses to large corporations are both at risk of cyber attacks. This Internet threat has the potential to cost a significant amount of money to repair the damage, and sometimes a business can be completely ruined. Every business has sensitive data and systems that need to be guarded with the best available technology and service. This is where Pathlock Technologies can help your business protect against cyber attacks. Before we discuss how Pathlock can help, let’s look at a few large cyber attacks that happened in 2015. From the website “Secure World” in an article called “15 of the Biggest Cyber Attacks in 2015”:
  • Feb. 5th: Tens of millions of Anthem Inc. customers have their information stolen in a massive data breach that is considered to be among the largest in corporate history.
  • Feb. 8th: Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc.’s Twitter is hacked and is used to post racist, homophobic, anti-government tweets.
  • Jan. 17th : Hackers break into Payivy.com – a virtual marketplace online – and dump 10,000 users and clear text passwords.
These are just a few cyber attacks that happened early in 2015. Cyber attacks can tarnish the reputation of a company and ruin the trust customers have in it. The damage done to the image of a company is compounded by the damage done to breached systems that need to be repaired. The scale can be enormous, and no business wants its’ name spread around the news as the latest to be cyber attacked. Truly a cyber attack threat shouldn’t be taken lightly. Pathlock Technologies has the solution for preventing and reducing the impact of cyber attacks for your business.
