How Hughes Technology Can Help You Prevent Costly Cyber Attacks

Cyber threats have become as commonplace as the technology we depend on, and small businesses are particularly vulnerable. In Murray, KY, Hughes Technology LLC stands as a vigilant guardian for these businesses, ensuring that their digital presence and operations are fortified against the threats of the 21st century.

Understanding the Threat Landscape

Imagine this: a small bakery starts its day ready to serve warm pastries, but instead, finds its point-of-sale system locked by ransomware. This is no longer a rare incident; it’s a growing threat to businesses that can bring operations to a grinding halt. Ransomware is a type of malicious software that encrypts a victim’s files, with the attacker then demanding a ransom to restore access. But ransomware is just one of the many cyber threats lurking around the corner. Others include phishing attacks, where seemingly trustworthy emails trick individuals into disclosing sensitive information, and DDoS attacks, where a flood of internet traffic is sent to overwhelm and disable a business’s online services entirely.

Safeguarding with Hughes Technology

At Hughes Technology, we’re experts at understanding the variety of cyber threats your business might encounter and we’re equipped to strengthen your defenses against them. Our first step is to enhance the security of your WiFi, especially for networks that your customers might use. This means reinforcing your network with strong protective measures that control who can access it, making sure that your business’s online environment is safe from threats that might be in close proximity.

Next, we utilize secure DNS servers when we set up your network installations. DNS, or Domain Name System, is like the internet’s phonebook, translating website names into IP addresses. By using a secure DNS, we make sure that when your business reaches out to the digital world, it’s not misdirected to fraudulent sites.

Modern firewalls are another key component of our defense strategy. They act like a filter for your network, blocking malicious traffic and unauthorized access attempts while allowing legitimate communications to pass.

In today’s mobile world, having secure remote access to your business network is not just a convenience—it’s a necessity. Hughes Technology offers robust VPN solutions using the latest technology including WIreGuard and OpenVPN that create a private, encrypted tunnel for your internet activities, much like an armored vehicle that keeps your data safe amidst the chaos of the internet. Whether you’re working remotely, traveling, or checking inventory off-site, our VPN services allow you and your employees to access your network as securely as if you were in the office. With our VPNs, sensitive information is shielded from hackers and eavesdroppers, ensuring that your proprietary data remains confidential and intact. This means you can operate your business with confidence, no matter where you or your team are located. With Hughes Technology, remote access is not only about connectivity; it’s about secure connectivity.
