Your Should Have Always-On, or Persistent, Online Protection
Online attacks are happening more often. They are also easier to execute then ever before. Company’s have to make sure all online transactions involving confidential data are secure. Here are some of the specific challenges that both small and large businesses have today regarding online security:
Unsecured WiFi and cookies are everywhere: Wi-Fi networks in public locations such as airports and coffee shops are often left open to facilitate use. Tools such as Firesheep have made it easier than ever to eavesdrop on unencrypted HTTP sessions, intercept users’ cookies and steal the confidential information within the cookies to gain access to web services.
- Malvertising can happen to anyone: Websites depend on the trust visitors put in their links and banner advertisements. Cybercriminals take advantage of this by injecting malicious advertisements that can download malware to the computers of unsuspecting users or lead them to fraudulent sites.
- A single data breach and ruin your brand: The 2010 Annual Study: U.S. Cost of a Data Breach report, co-sponsored by the Ponemon Institute and Symantec, found that companies that suffer data breaches paid on average $7.2 million per breach and $214 per compromised data record.3 Lost business due to increased customer turnover accounted for 63 percent of total breach costs, meaning many current and future customers take their business elsewhere after a breach. An unsecured connection between an end user and a website may give a hacker the opening they need to inject malicious code designed to attack that site and its servers – an attack that could result in a data breach.
- Privacy groups are pushing for companies to provide Always On SSL: In response to reports of SSL hacks, legislators have publicly called on websites to expedite the transition to Always On SSL certificates.
