Online Businesses: Use Cybersecurity to Drive Profits


It’s not easy for online businesses to earn the trust of shoppers. Unlike retail stores, online businesses do not have the luxury of face-to-face interactions. Most consumers rely on public reviews before deciding whether they can trust online business with their financial data.

In the ultra-competitive ecommerce industry, one cybersecurity slip-up could have disastrous consequences.

It’s for this reason why Ecommerce Platforms named security and trustworthiness a key element for building a successful online business in 2016.

The company offered several tips for reducing online fraud, including using a secure hosting platform, incorporating strong Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) authentication and asking customers to use strong passwords.

The truth, however, is that you need to do much more than this to keep cybercriminals out of your system. Your network needs real-time security monitoring with advanced intrusion detection. Plus, your physical and virtual machines need to be fortified with strong access controls and regular security patches. And these are just some preliminary steps that need to be taken. The list goes on and on.

We recommend investing in the services of a complete end-to-end managed services provider (MSP), who can guarantee that all of your bases will be covered. Apex Technology Services, for instance, will conduct a thorough network assessment and pinpoint vulnerabilities that you never even knew existed.

Take our advice: Cybersecurity is something to be feared. Just because companies like Home Depot, Target and Staples can recover from data breaches doesn’t mean that your business will be able to pull it off. These companies have bottomless resources for repairing damaged relations, recovering from lawsuits and ridding their networks of malware.

It makes much more sense to focus on protecting your network before you run into a cybersecurity nightmare. In addition to protecting your own assets, you will be able to market your business as a secure and trustworthy ecommerce provider.

A new breed of hacktrepeneurs has awoken and they have little to fear and everything to gain by infecting as many companies as possible and extorting money from them. Apex Technology Services stands ready to protect your company regardless of whether it’s located in New York CityWhite Plains, New York; Connecticut; Australia; Europe; or anywhere else.
