It is not enough to make sure your doors are locked and your alarm is switched on. Serious threats to business security and productivity lurk on the Internet and could be more financially damaging than a burglary.

Threats that lie in wait attached to or embedded in an email or behind the seemingly innocent facade of a website have become more and more common.

These threats could not only destroy your company’s network in an instant, but could also infect the recipient’s PC and those of everyone in their address book, including their colleagues and clients.

The statistics make alarming reading:

  • 90% of all email traffic is spam
  • 1 in every 317 emails contains a virus
  • 1 in every 279 emails are phishing for your contact information
  • 2,119 new websites containing viruses are created every day

But it’s not just viruses that could damage your business.

Social media exchanges on Facebook and Twitter, web browsing and checking personal emails in company time are made at the expense of productivity as well as putting pressure on your Internet bandwidth and potentially slowing down your businesses connectivity.

There are products available that help avoid this by providing email, web and network security and website content filtering to ensure the backbone of your business is never threatened and to ensure work time is not being wasted.

Former newspaper journalist, Caroline joined the company in 2008 with no previous knowledge of the industry.

She set about stripping back all the jargon to produce plain English marketing collateral to support the sales teams. Now slightly more well-versed in the dark arts of voice, connectivity and data services, Caroline writes blogs, case studies, data sheets and social media updates to engage with potential and existing customers.

This industry is far cry from her previous working life when she worked as communications manager for Exeter Chiefs and Northampton Saints.
