Lookout Mobile Security

How much risk are you taking with your mobiles?

Mobile infection rates rose in the last twelve months and will continue to do so as cyber criminals are increasingly turn their focus to mobile devices as these endpoints have little or no protection on them. The assumption is mobile devices are safe, have built in security or are enrolled in an MDM (Mobile Device Management) solution securing the device. This assumption is wrong. There are a wealth of threats targeted at mobile devices, such as man-in-the-middle attacks, data leakage, malicious apps, out of date OS. To protect against these you need to understand what risks your mobile devices are prone to.

To help assess how vulnerable your business may be, AVR, in association with mobile security specialists Lookout, is offering for a limited period, a free Mobile Risk Assessment with the opportunity to win a Spa Weekend break in our exciting prize draw.

C360 at The Business Show

Small businesses count the cost of a cyber attack

One in five small businesses hit by a cyber attack report that the breach cost in excess of £10,000 with one in ten quoting £50,000 as the amount they had to spend to rectify the damage.  With over 875,000 small, and medium sized businesses (SME’s) across the UK being attacked in the last 12 months, can SME’s really afford to take a chance on outdated or inadequate protection?

SentinelOne Endpoint Protection

We can stop every type of endpoint attack

Over 50% of all UK businesses were hit by a cyber attack in 2017. Seven out of ten large firms identified a breach and those businesses holding electronic data were twice as likely to be attacked (UK Government Cyber Breaches Survey 2017).  All of those attacked will have anti-virus and firewalls in place, but today’s advanced malware can breach those defences.  Next Generation Endpoint Protection will stop every type of attack at every stage in the threat life-cycle.  So what’s stopping you giving your business this vital security?

BYOD Maas360

BYOD? TBH AVR say KISS!

In today’s world of text speak, instant messaging, emoticons and emoji’s, less is more!  For most people, mobile phones are the primary form of communication and their use within business is now ubiquitous.  As capable as mobile devices – smartphones, tablet devices, laptops – are at easing communications and improving productivity, if there is not structure and control to their usage, there is a risk that they can open the organisation to a cyber attack or data breach, particularly if the mobiles are the employees own as in BYOD – Bring Your Own Device.  So businesses need TBH – To Be Honest and KISS – Keep It Simple Stupid! No offence!
