IT support companies and consultants, like CoreTech, talk a great deal about network security and the impact it can have on your business. We also instruct and educate on the importance of antivirus software, Microsoft security updates, firewalls and data backup. The initial investment in these security solutions may seem daunting, however given the consequences of a security breach or downtime you understand the justification. But then you are reminded the investment is ongoing—ouch! As hackers build and change their skills to catch the unsuspecting, you are paying for updates and ongoing protection tools as well.
