"Most businesses, in my experience, are ill-prepared to handle a cyber attack; very few even know where their data is backed up to or if their backups are even good..."

— Jackob S, CIO Consultant

Antivirus alone will not keep your business safe from a cyber attack.

Most common cyber threats are socially engineered attacks such as phishing designed to steal passwords or install malware on your machine. Cyber criminals gain control of the infected machine and using windows features and legitimate programs infiltrate your network, steal data, and encrypt your systems

PHISHING ATTACKS

Antivirus does not offer a robust cloud filter that scans emails prior to you receiving them in your mailbox. Office 365 alone does not offer an effective email spam filtering solution

ZERO-DAY MALWARE

Antivirus scans file signatures and compares them to previously known definitions of malicious code. Zero-Day is malware that does not have the definition yet and would go unnoticed by most Antivirus programs

RANSOMWARE

Ransomware could encrypt your system by using built-in Windows functionality like Bitlocker. Antivirus would not perceive this as a threat and allow the encryption to continue

BROWSER PLUGIN

Much of the malware like key loggers will get it’s way into a computer using a browser extension that if user is allowed to install would often times bypass most Antivirus solutions

ABNORMAL BEHAVIOR

Antivirus does not monitor data usage, such as what would be present if threat actors would be offloading your data to their server prior to encrypting it. (Data Breach)

OUTDATED ANTIVIRUS

Antivirus constantly updates for new threats as they emerge, so if your subscription runs out, or you ignore the update, it will render the antivirus less effective

HOW ALPHACIS KEEPS YOUR SYSTEMS SECURE

PERMISSION CONTROL

Limiting what the user can access and do to only the minimum permissions needed to perform their jobs. This includes not only file access but limiting what can be installed and ran on a computer

MONITORING BEHAVIOR

Once a user's typical work day is learned and set, we can use this as a baseline for the "norm." Our software then scans for or blocks activity that falls outside the "norm." All virus definitions and updates are centralized and standardized so that a user is not responsible to keep up with updates

EMAIL SPAM FILTERING

We incorporate machine learning AI cloud based spam filtering. This means in addition to your Office 365, it scrubs emails prior to delivering them to your mailbox. Greatly limiting your exposure to phishing attacks

"I am so happy I chose to go with Alphacis to manage our systems and security. I receive weekly reports, and know that my company is truly protected from external threats"
