Recommendations

You may not have a dedicated IT person in your team, but you should know that you will, at some point, have to deal with malware – if your company operates with financial transactions, it's very likely that your business will come under cybercriminal fire sooner or later. To effectively counter this threat, install a multi-layered security solution that fends off malware, protects your valuable data from ransomware, and allows for safe banking.

Companies working in the financial sector in Europe have reportedly experienced disruption to their services due to DDoS attacks. To ensure that doesn't happen anymore, you are advised to implement an integrated DDoS attack mitigation strategy .
