What’s threatening your network?
Do you know, or wonder, exactly what you are protecting yourself against when installing digital security? It’s difficult to not notice the various reports in the media about the threats from ransomware, crypto-ware and malware attacks. Further, you only need to glance at the website for AV-TEST Institute to see just how much the threat is growing. According to statistics from the Institute, over 350,000 new malicious programs (malware) and potentially unwanted applications (PUA) are registered every day and, in 2019, it is estimated that the number will reach 963 million.
Regardless of which sector you work in, those figures are pretty scary and evidence enough for any business to make sure it is fully protected, and that all licenses for security software and appliances (not to mention desktop anti-virus suites) are fully up to date. Unfortunately, unless you fall victim to a cyber-threat, there’s no real way of knowing how effective your digital security protection is on a day-to-day basis.
Visibility of what is happening is essential and this is where cloud-based analytics and reporting from the ZyXEL SecuReporter come in handy. The service provides detailed information on web traffic and the activity and effectiveness of ZyXEL threat protection devices. It is possible to monitor both the ZyXEL ATP, USG and VPN series appliances and extract information, such as how many malware programs and other forms of attacks have been detected and repelled. It will also monitor general activity, so you can, for instance, identify which websites are visited most. All the information collected can be analysed and collated, and presented on an on-screen dashboard and/or in a PDF report; which can be sent via e-mail.
SecuReporter is an ideal way to stay informed and make sure that your digital defenses are doing their job. Of course, it will also identify if there are any potential gaps that need to be closed. As a cloud-based service, SecuReporter can be used from anyway to monitor networks remotely. Alerts can be sent to a smartphone so administrators will always know when something significant has occurred on a monitored network.
