From Protection to Prevention: The Evolution of Data Theft Protection Software

To fully protect your business from the threat of data theft, you need comprehensive tools covering all potential points of vulnerability. These tools don’t just protect against outside hackers and insider threats, but prevent attacks by keeping company data safe from unauthorized access.


Today’s Approach: Data Theft Protection Software

A solid security plan starts with knowing where potential threats exist and what weaknesses are increasing your company’s risk of a data breach. By identifying these areas, you get a better idea of what kinds of tools you need to maximize protection.

For most businesses, the most sought out choice is likely to be a comprehensive security suite offering several solutions in one platform. These programs are designed to protect multiple machines on the same network so that you can put your entire company under an umbrella of protection. Look for suites with:

  • Antivirus protection
  • Monitoring for and protection against adware, malware and spyware
  • Strong firewall protection
  • Spam filters
  • Phishing detection and protection
  • Controls to block potentially harmful sites
  • Scheduled background scanning
  • Scheduled data backups

Security suites from Symantec, Bitdefender, Kaspersky and McAfee get high ratings from publications like PCMag and Techradar thanks to their broad range of protection tools. Choose a lightweight program to avoid bogging down machines with an excessive draw on system resources.

Prevention: The New Key to Data Security Success

Every company should have data protection in place, but why wait for a potential breach when you could identify threats before any information is compromised? Endpoint security solutions from Pilixo are designed to monitor external threats and internal activity so that you can be alerted to potential problems as soon as they appear. This new class of cloud-based endpoint security solutions include:

  • Real-time alerts when employees perform unauthorized actions
  • Phishing prevention
  • Monitoring of application usage
  • Tracking to pinpoint the origin of a breach
  • Remediation options
  • Real-time endpoint alerting and reporting for immediate notification of attacks

With Pilixo covering your company’s machines, it’s harder for malicious third parties, insiders with bad intentions or negligent employees to engage in harmful activities. You’re able to monitor many areas of risk, put an immediate stop to potential threats and preserve the integrity of your data.

Creating a balance between prevention and protection keeps your company as safe as possible from the threat of a data breach. Although each option offers strong protection on its own, using both together reduces your risk even more and allows you to focus on running your company instead of always being on the lookout for potential problems with data compromise.
