Many small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) have believed that they will be safe if they just shift their files and data to the cloud for a number of years.
However, data breaches and hackers can affect even cloud software suppliers. Unfortunately, the majority of SMBs are unaware that their remote employees are expanding opportunities by conducting business on unprotected networks, further jeopardising any data protection they employ.
It is hoped that cloud-based services from companies like Amazon.com Inc.’s Web Services, Microsoft Corp.’s Azure, and IBM’s (NYSE: IBM) Cloud Services will offer additional security and peace of mind for critical data.
SMBs are putting up a defence against cyber intrusion and phishing scams because they are careful in adopting the correct tools and procedures to safeguard their data against attacks like hacking and theft. By doing this, they safeguard private medical information, email addresses, phone numbers, and sensitive data including bank and credit card numbers, medical information, and more. Many are falling short in this regard, according to recent studies. SMBs Are A Serious Target For Hackers
Phishing attacks are viewed as the biggest cyber danger by 30% of small organisations, 1 in 5 of which lack endpoint security, and more than 50% of which do not have any in-house information technology (IT) security personnel.
SMBs are responsible for more than 40% of all data breaches, according to a benchmark study by Cisco Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: CSCO), and more than six out of ten say that at least one cyberattack in the previous year resulted in at least eight hours of business shutdowns.
The stress of data protection is impacting SMBs’ workflow even as they strive to find affordable solutions to the problem. Nearly 4 in 10 small-business owners say they are very or somewhat afraid that their company may be the target of a cyber attack over the next 12 months, according to a new survey from CNBC and SurveyMonkey. New data protection tools are now accessible.
Sekur Private Data Ltd. (OTCQB: SWISF), a Swiss-based privacy and cybersecurity company that specialises in privacy and security communications and data management solutions, is one business that is stepping up to offer affordable and peace-of-mind products for SMBs. SekurMail and SekurMessenger were created by the firm as part of a privacy and security package for email, messaging, and file sharing in a single application that uses the most recent SekurSend technology.
SekurSend®, a product of this technology, has exclusive anti-phishing and privacy capabilities that enable users to send emails in total privacy and securely to any recipient, regardless of whether they have Sekur or not. Sekur’s secure email servers in Switzerland ensure that the email never leaves them. The recipient can then click the notification and respond using SekurReply® in the same way without first creating an account with Sekur. SekurMessenger comes with a proprietary feature and technology called “Chat-By-Invites”. This feature allows a SekurMessenger user (“SM user”) invite a non-SM user, or a group of non-SM users, to chat in a fully private and secure way, without the recipient ever having to register to SekurMessenger or download the app. At the end of the chat, the initiator of the conversation can remotely terminate the conversation and all traces of the conversation are deleted from all users, including the recipient. The invite can be sent via Email or SMS. Sekur has already enabled invites in 61 countries, covering over 3.40 billion people, and will add more countries as Sekur expands globally. The target sectors are numerous, including but not limited to real estate, legal, finance, medical, government, energy, manufacturing.
Sekur has ambitious ambitions to provide solutions to SMBs for the remaining two years of 2022 and 2023, including: Creating fresh email, digital marketing, and SEO campaigns that aim to reach over 3 million SMBs out of the 30 million in the U.S. with a conversion objective of up to 10%; (up to 300,000 SMBs and up to 1 million to 1.5 million users). the creation and application of additional marketing tools across a variety of media, such as the substantial launch of its SekurMail product across all digital media and the usage of electronic billboards in New York City to support its upcoming television advertisements and new interviews. The introduction of the video conferencing tools SekurVPN, SekurVoice, and SekurPro, which are aimed at C-level executives.
