Your Competitor Just Received Your Customer List – Now What?

It is one of a manager’s or business owner’s worst nightmares. Your biggest competitor just received your customer list. Now you are in danger of losing at least some of your customers because of this security breech. Once you know that a customer list has been leaked, you need to act quickly. You and your employees will have to develop a strategy to keep your customers. Then you need to reevaluate your business’ security strategy in order to make sure that something like this never happens again.

Unless you have a comprehensive employee computer monitoring program, you might never discover who released the information. Sometimes, a disgruntled employee will back up corporate files onto his personal computer. If your computer system is unprotected, this is a fairly easy transfer to make. Your employee could simple use a flash drive or email important files to a personal email account.

If you have had security issues in the past, you know how important computer security is. If you have been lucky enough to avoid these problems, you need to realize that without a firewall, luck is all that is protecting your business interests. You have worked hard to make your business what it is today. You do not want to leave important security issues up to mere chance. Fortunately, you can prevent important files from ever getting leaked to your competitors. Comprehensive employee internet monitoring can keep your business’ information safe.

SonicWALL network security firewall solutions can protect your business. A firewall acts as a barrier between your computer system and and any possible harm. Your employees will not be able to pass along important information to your competitors. The SonicWALL protection package offers a deep packet inspection engine. This engine inspects all internet communication, including email, instant messages, and file transfers. No one will be able to send any information without leaving a trail or alerting your IT team.

Additionally, the SonicWALL hardware firewall ensures that your computer system will not be damaged by the latest malware. However, not every firewall offers adequate protection against viruses. You need the most advanced hardware to protect your computer against the latest threats. SonicWALL Gateway Anti-Virus & Anti-Spyware is capable of fending off the newest and most malicious viruses. Once your business information is protected by SonicWALL, you can go back to managing your company confident that your computer system is completely secure.
