Suppose a company uses a reputable cloud service provider to manage their email accounts. In that case, they can be assured that an anti-malware solution is installed on the server to remove possible threats before they enter your employees' computers.
FREMONT,CA: Antivirus (anti-malware) software is considered a normal component of a Windows installation, and it is uncommon to see a device without one. Surprisingly, many companies believe they are absolutely safe simply by creating a website or web application without considering whether or not it is stable. This is all the more shocking because web-accessible databases often contain more confidential information than a typical office machine, such as customer personal information.
Here are a couple of reasons why one should pay as much attention to web security as they do to personal computers and endpoint security in general.
Ease of Attacking
Making an effective web attack is much easier, and there are also free and easily accessible resources that help the attacker much more. Just aim the tool at the website, and the tool, which works similarly to a vulnerability scanner, detects the flaws and enables the attacker to exploit them right away. Since the attacker targets a specific victim and knows the victim has essential information, such an attack has a high chance of succeeding. Digital criminals enjoy making their lives as simple as possible. Why build complicated, blind phishing campaigns in the hopes of obtaining valuable data when they can conduct a simple, automated, targeted attack and receive immediate results?
No Outside Assistance
Suppose a company uses a reputable cloud service provider to manage their email accounts. In that case, they can be assured that an anti-malware solution is installed on the server to remove possible threats before they enter your employees' computers. This means that for email, the local anti-malware solution is not needed.Unlike cloud email services, web hosting companies usually do not provide any security features other than generic web application firewalls, which do not remove vulnerabilities. As a result, a firm is on its own before web vulnerability testing becomes a feature of cloud provider offerings (if it ever does). A business is the only one that can find and fix serious flaws in its websites or web applications. This is just another excuse to use a web vulnerability scanner regularly.
