No matter what size a business is, no company is exempt from cyber security threats. Cyber intrusion activity globally jumped 125% in the first half of 2021 compared to the previous year, according to Accenture, with ransomware and extortion operations one of the major contributors behind this increase. But, not all attacks are targeted. Cyber criminals and threat actors love chaos and attack for the sake of hacking: to exploit businesses that aren’t addressing or understanding their vulnerabilities. Contributing to this jump in cyberattacks is the addition and transformation of remote work and hybrid work environments.

To help combat these attacks and protect client data, REACH has partnered with Privafy – a cloud-native, security-as-a-service application that integrates the functionality of encryption systems and VPNs, firewalls, DDoS protection, intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS and IPS), data loss prevention (DLP) and deep content inspection technology to provide comprehensive protection as data traverses between locations, clouds, mobile devices, and the Internet of Things (IoT). Its unique architecture and robust data security service support all the environments a network requires – cloud, headquarters and branches, home and mobile devices.

A single dashboard to define enforcement points and policies for all your locations, devices, and cloud applications using intuitive business rules.

Mobility and remote access are universal concerns for all organizations. Every company, regardless of industry or size, needs to empower their workers with access to business applications and data from anywhere, on any device. Ransomware attacks, according to Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty, account for 50% of the value of close to 3,000 insurance industry cyber claims over the last 6 years. Businesses need to invest in cyber security or they will end up losing money on recovery services and business interruption/downtime. Privafy enterprise solutions provide the perfect mix of productivity and security.
