Introducing a Revolutionary Solution for Better Cyber Security

Posted by Mark Nash on Mar 6, 2020 11:00:00 AM

Cyber security is a vital component of any company, no matter the size or what products/services they provide. Cyber security is important for every business and individual. While antivirus and firewalls are a good start, they cannot protect a business from all the digital threats it will face. As the already massive and turbulent nature of the digital space continues to expand, cyber security needs to keep up with it. In order to provide a greater presence Lighthouse IT Solutions is happy to announce that it has partnered with Defendify to make Cyber Security easy to understand and implement.

Defendify is an all-in-one cyber security platform that has been specifically designed for small businesses. It focuses on creating a strong foundation to foster a culture of security within a company and uses its own technologies to expand a company’s existing cyber security setup.

To ensure that businesses have supporting infrastructure, Defendify:

  • helps create policies and rules to regulate the use of technology and data with cyber security in mind
  • helps create response plans that can be quickly deployed to protect the business as much as possible in the event of a cyber-attack
  • provides regular cyber security health checkups informing businesses of the vulnerability of their cyber security measures and where they can improve
  • employs the use of ethical hackers to simulate cyber-attacks and identify any weaknesses so that they can be strengthened

Could Multi-factor Authentication really be that good?

Posted by Mark Nash on Oct 25, 2019 9:18:00 AM

Chances are that you have heard about the factors of making a strong password, like how the longer it is the better and how the use of upper-case and lower-case letters, numbers, and symbols protects you against brute force attacks. But what if I told you there was a way to make an account protected by “drowssap” or “qwerty” exponentially safer than an account protected by more complex passwords like “Th15_1$_@_P@55w0rd”? Multi-factor authentication (MFA) to the rescue! Also known as two-factor or two-step authentication, this is one of the more secure (and quite easy to implement) methods of securing your accounts. MFA can be considered a few different things. The most common form is an algorithm that generates random temporary passwords that must be entered in addition to your standard password. It could also be push notifications from third party apps that manage these MFA communications like Duo Security. This is nice because out devices all have the capability to be only unlocked through certain means like facial recognition, voice recognition, fingerprint scanners, pin numbers, or even retinal scans. What that means for you is even if your first password is compromised you have a second method of identity verification protecting your account. We here at Lighthouse IT Solutions care about your cyber security; our series of posts and webinars espousing its benefits probably convey that just fine.
