What is multi-layer security?

Multi-layer security is a network security system that uses a number of different security measures to provide full and complete security cover for your company. This means ensuring that every security system in place has a backup, in case of missing coverage or an error or flaw. This creates layers of security for all aspects of your network and data, from web security to privacy settings.

What are the advantages of multi-layer security for your business?

There are a number of advantages to using multi level security for your company or business. These advantages include:

  • Full and holistic coverage- by using multiple layers of security you can be sure of complete protection from all manner of cyber crime and data breach attacks. This is because for each layer of security, every aspect of the digital network is considered, with all manner of threats detected and protection put in place. This also ensures protection from every angle and ensures that any potential gaps or issues are covered, even if the first layer of defense fails due to a fault or lack of coverage.
  • Make your network impenetrable- when your business is hit by a cyber attack the chances are that there will be multiple different forms of threat at once, or at least one attack connected to another. This could be a phishing scam leading into ransomware, or a password key-logger into a virus attack. These types of blended attacks are becoming increasingly common, but with multi-layer security you can be sure to stop the threat at the start, and keep your company or business safe.
  • Anti-virus software is not enough- if your company or business is relying solely on anti-virus protection, this could be a big mistake. Typically, anti-virus protection can catch up to 70-80% of all known viruses, but with the signatures changing daily, and new attack tools in development almost constantly, you need a system in place to provide the additional 30% of protection you need, to keep your data and finances safe.
  • Proactive security measure- because multi-layer security looks at all possible threats from each aspect of your network, the security measures put in place are proactive, rather than reactive. This difference can be significant for preventing criminal activity and for keeping your business safe.
