In today’s digital landscape, protecting your business from cyber threats is essential. Here are 5 efforts that will significantly enhance your cybersecurity status and minimize the risk of attacks. Let’s explore practical advice and best practices to safeguard your business against malware or other cyber-attacks.
Strong Access Controls: Control access to systems and data with strong passwords, regular password changes, and multi-factor authentication (MFA). Apply the principle of least privilege to limit access. Regularly review and revoke access for employees who no longer require it.
Up-to-Date Software and Systems: Keep operating systems, applications, and firmware updated with the latest security patches. Enable automatic updates and maintain an inventory of software and hardware assets to promptly address vulnerabilities.
Robust Security Solutions: Invest in comprehensive security solutions, including firewalls, intrusion detection/prevention systems, antivirus/anti-malware software, and email filters. Configure and update these solutions to match evolving needs.
Employee Education and Training: Educate employees on cybersecurity best practices, such as identifying phishing emails, safe browsing habits, and password security. Foster a culture of accountability and encourage prompt reporting of suspicious activities.
Incident Response Planning: Develop an incident response plan to minimize the impact of a cyber-attack. Define roles, establish communication protocols, and regularly test and update the plan to align with emerging threats.
Protecting your business from cyber threats requires a proactive and multi-layered approach. By implementing these efforts, you can significantly enhance your cybersecurity position. Remember, cybersecurity is a shared responsibility, and staying informed and proactive is essential to safeguarding your business.

Now Micro, known for its expertise in computer hardware and
services, introduces DICE, a software solution that helps organizations manage computing
devices from the time of purchase and throughout the lifecycle of the product.
Last year and continuing today, the rapid shift to remote learning and work from home environments created challenges for IT departments, specifically in the areas of asset management, system security, and tech support. Almost overnight, organizations had to purchase, configure and deploy computing devices to support an increased number of remote employees, students, and educators. With this, came all the associated technical support challenges ranging from hardware malfunctions to internet connectivity and general usage challenges such as logging into Zoom calls.
“You’d be surprised how many organizations are tracking device information in spreadsheets. DICE not only puts real-time device data at their fingertips but allows for remote troubleshooting and restoration, saving time and eliminating costs associated with shipping a device back for repair,” says Bernard Carter, CTO at Now Micro.
Previously, organizations might have used numerous spreadsheets and invoices in different places to keep track of purchases and separate software to enable remote technical assistance. Now Micro recognized the need for a software solution that enables quick access to device information through a centralized, real-time online portal. Streamlining device lifecycle management activities is crucial for organizations that have hundreds or thousands of devices under their supervision.
DICE is available in two versions with the base package included at no charge with every device purchased from Now Micro. Customers may upgrade to the paid version that includes additional features outlined in the table below. Pricing is based on device count and administrator access.
