Brute force attacks!
Your business can have the best security measures in place and still fall victim to a brute force attack! Having weak passwords is a major contributor to the success of these attacks.

Strong passwords, Multi factor authentication (MFA) and limited log in attempts will help reduce the success rate of these attacks.
Firewall and network security
A fortress is only as strong as it is built to be! This is exactly the same when it comes to your firewall. A firewall controls the traffic that is allowed to enter and leave your network. If this has not been configured properly it will leave you vulnerable to attack.
