The incorporation of digitalization in the security fields allows advantageous solutions to face possible attacks.
The incorporation of technologies in business allows to obtain many advantages, as well as to adapt in a better way to future challenges. Given the rise of digitalization in the world, companies must take advantage of it to improve key aspects of their business. In this case, we will talk about security.
The new technological tools allow a great improvement in the field of data protection, being able to do it in a more secure and controlled way. Their advantages, which in turn cover many other fields, are key to being able to ensure different aspects of security. These advantages can be seen with the boom in the incorporation of technologies in logistics companies.
According to a YouGov study in Spain, 36% of companies are in the process of incorporating a digital transformation plan in logistics. Among these tools, there are some that will play a key role in the future of logistics. We can see this fact reflected in numbers. When asked about the services that will be key in the future, 79% of respondents bet on cloud services, with Big Data being the second key technological tool with 71%.
A number of technologies that can help protect and secure your logistics business data will be discussed below.
As we have already seen in the above data, the role of cloud services is well valued in the community. This is due to factors such as the security it guarantees, traceability and constant connection of data. Tools such as cloud computing allow you to improve and ensure the protection of your data.
Cloud computing could be defined as the offer of different services through the Internet. Thanks to this, you can access various software that allows you to implement the desired services in the different areas of your company. What are the advantages of its incorporation? Among many others, better access to data and greater flexibility in relation to its treatment.
Among all the clouds you can implement, if you are looking for data protection, the best solution is to implement a private cloud. This option allows you to secure your data with different levels of security, controlling access, permissions, databases and different applications. Although it is the most secure option, other measures can be adapted, such as the use of a private cloud with a public cloud or On-premise.
Digital protection systems
Within a company, the number of devices that are kept in use is very large. This translates into high chances of suffering a cyber-attack. For this reason, it is always important to protect these devices. The most effective solution to face this type of attacks is the incorporation of an antivirus.
We can highlight the use of ESET technology, which allows protection and comprehensive centralized management. Its antivirus service protects all types of devices and uses systems that are constantly updated, based on machine learning technology.
Since it will be implemented to protect important company data, you should always opt for the services that offer the highest quality in security guidelines. If they have the ability to detect malicious movements, block and report them, as well as generate a complete protection against botnets and various network attacks. It also allows you to monitor different applications such as browsers or emails to detect threats and block them immediately.
Business Continuity arises in order to face disruptions in business processes. In order to ensure that data is not damaged and to minimize interruptions in operations, tools such as this one are key.
Its main objective is to minimize the risk of data loss or downtime. In addition to this, it enables all the requirements of the business in question to be met.
Some of the important features of this service are the replication of environments, with which, through the use of various technologies, effective backups are made; the dimensionality of the needs and processes required by your company and the reduction of downtime.
In conclusion, the incorporation of digital tools allows to be positioned with an advantageous security situation against possible cyber-attacks.
