The Benefits of Strong Threat Protection


Every organization faces a constant stream of threats to its intellectual property and its critical data. This is especially true for healthcare organizations, which must be able to make fast decisions when it comes to patient records and other confidential information. A good threat protection plan will help you protect your organization’s assets and data by providing real-time monitoring of the latest malware threats in addition to other forms of cybercrime such as phishing scams and ransomware attacks. Here are some things you need to know about strong threat protection:

What is threat protection?

Threat protection is a cybersecurity strategy that helps you to prevent, detect and respond to cyberattacks. Threat protection can be deployed as an integrated set of policies, procedures and technologies within your organization or as a standalone service from an external vendor.

Threat protection helps you identify threats before they cause damage by providing visibility into network activity as well as insight into user behavior so you can better understand what’s normal for your organization and what isn’t normal. It also enables rapid response capabilities such as automated incident detection and containment tools like firewalls, IDS/IPS systems or antivirus software packages (AV).

How do you get it?

  • You need to have a threat protection plan in place, which includes:
  • Understanding what your organization’s assets are.
  • Understanding what threats might affect those assets and how they can be protected from them.
  • Knowing how to respond quickly when a threat is detected.

Why do you need it?

Your organization needs threat protection because:

  • You want to protect your data and assets.
  • You want to stay competitive in a changing business environment.
  • You need to comply with regulations that require strong security measures, such as the GDPR or HIPAA.
  • Your reputation is at stake if your company gets hit with a breach or hack that exposes sensitive information about customers or employees (think Target). And finally…

What are the benefits of threat protection?

  • It helps you prevent data breaches.
  • It helps you prevent ransomware attacks.
