What is a Multi-layered Security Approach?
Multi-layered security is designed to utilize several components to protect your operations with multiple levels of security measures. The purpose of this is to ensure that every individual defense component has a backup to counter any flaws in other areas of defense. The following sections will highlight key areas your IT team or managed service provider should look out for when building your multi-layered security plan.
1. Assess Current Security Setup
The first step to guiding your security plan is to utilize a scanning tool that can detect any viruses, malware, botnets, or backdoors currently lurking within your system or wen services that link to malicious content. Before diving into a project it is important for your team to identify the weaknesses in your security setup.

2. Email Protection
Email is the preferred means of entry for ransomware attacks. In 2021, simple spam filtering is not enough. You need a complete email protection system shielding you from phishing, plus end-to-end encryption, archiving tools, and data loss protection.
Organization everywhere rely on e-mail to keep operations running smoothly. Since email is still popular in business, it is still a viable target for hackers to undermine security and obtain valuable data through phishing attempts.
Legacy antivirus platform solutions that rely on signatures simply cannot spot the evolving behaviors of modern ransomware activity, some f which employee polymorphic (shapeshifting) code to evade detection. Your network needs endpoint protection that can monitor and fight and defeat modern ransomware treats on every network device
Endpoint security is one of the most important initiatives you can undertake to enhance your overall cybersecurity posture. The benefits of having these endpoints include:
The ability to act on threats via the agent itself and stop a threat
Remote monitoring of global assets and employee devices
Real-time monitoring and detection of threats the instant they occur
Your organization should always stay aware of who is trying to attack your network and mitigate damage with 24x7x265 Threat Detection and Monitoring. Our Threat Respond system operates 24x7 and includes collections and parsing of your networks' event logs and device information.
This includes port scans, anomalies in traffic and logons, authentication failures, and other irregularities - all correlated in an advanced, cloud based SIEM infrastructure and then scrutinized by a team of human security engineers to eliminate false positives.
