Today, LeadingIT, a cybersecurity and IT support company, has relaunched its previous cybersecurity measures. Through this move, they are planning to help their clients curb the menace of cyberattacks.
The launch comes at a time when internet usage and online networking is sky rocking. This unprecedented level of usage is the result of the stay-at-home orders and other COVID-19 measures across the nation.
Today, with the threat of coronavirus still lingering, many corporate employees are confined to work from home. With time, the death toll and rate of infections has drastically decreased especially with the rollout of vaccines. But the many experts have predicted rife with cybersecurity for future.
LeadingIT is planning to help its old, new, and prospective clients develop measures to tackle all the potential cybersecurity threats in future. The company announced these plans as they celebrates a decade of providing fast and friendly IT support or their “10th Anniversary of Provided Excellent Always Available Support”.
LeadingIT has completed ten years now and they have already worked with corporates, businesses, religious organizations, nonprofits, and government entities to provide IT and cybersecurity services
Stephen Taylor, the CEO of LeadingIT, said “It is quite an achievement to be around for ten years now. Sincerely, the journey hasn’t been a walk in the park. We pass our sincere gratitude to our partners, staff, and friends for supporting us through the journey.”
“However, we won’t let the 10-year celebrations deter us from focusing on the continued cybersecurity threats. Cybercriminals thrive where there is chaos. Thus, the chaos of 2020, together with upcoming events such as the Tokyo Olympics, will provide an opportunity for attackers to prey on your servers, data, and teams.”
The University of Maryland reported that there are an average of 2,224 attempts to hack or breach every day. This means an average of one attempt every 39 seconds and this prediction will continue in the future.
Cyberattackers will keep trying to gain access to systems via more than 300 billion passwords and usernames globally. Both organizations and individuals will suffer these security breaches especially those who do not have Multi-Factor-Authorization.
As the remote workforce will continue to rise, cyber-attackers will continue to swarm RDPs and VPNs. A higher risk of attacks will be faced by home networks, computers, and servers and nearly 55% of enterprises will increase their IT support budgets, says Global Digital Trust Insights.
In 2021, the top areas that businesses will spend on are identity management, messaging security, and network security.
Stephen Taylor said, “These threats our very real for all businesses but we’ve built a 7-layer cybersecurity ‘jacket’ to prevent data breaches, ransomware, and forced downtime.”
The company is currently focusing on ensuring best practices, two-factor authentication, advanced endpoint detection, cybersecurity education, and more to keep their clients safe in 2021 and future.
