Synology DiskStation: Innovative Data Storage

Synology DiskStation: Innovative Data Storage

When running a business, you know the security and ease of having dedicated file servers and a managed user database cannot be overstated, but if you are a small to medium sized company or have multiple locations, it can be hard to justify spending thousands on dedicated servers.

With Synology Network Attached Storage (NAS) you can have that convenience without the cost.

The Synology DiskStation line of NAS provides expandability and customization that allows for added functionality beyond data storage, tailored to your specific needs.

These days, business data is scattered across multiple platforms and devices, from servers to virtual machines, personal computers and cloud applications like Google Drive, Drop Box, or Microsoft One Drive.

With a Synology NAS all of your important data can be stored in one centralized location allowing your employees access, even when away from the office. 

For businesses with multiple locations, you can even set up file replication between Synology devices. No longer will your satellite offices be hampered by slow internet speeds as they try to access files from the primary location.

With Synology Hyper Backup you have the peace of mind of backing up your data to one centralized location. Partner that with Cloud Sync and you can increase the safety of your data with a redundant offsite backup.  So even if the worst were to happen, you can rest easy knowing your data can be quickly and easily recovered.

As businesses migrate more and more to cloud based products and online focused collaboration tools many are finding it hard to keep up with the important data shared on these services.  Email from Exchange Online, Microsoft Teams messages and attached files, OneNote notebooks, SharePoint libraries, and OneDrive. 

No more will you have to worry about that email from 3 years ago that you may have deleted.  Or the document that was shared through MS Teams and now is lost in months and months of message logs.

All of these data sources can be securely backed up with Synology Active Backup for Microsoft 365.

While commonplace in larger businesses, a dedicated active directory server is often out of reach for those with fewer employees.  However, the benefits of managing your user accounts through AD are immeasurable, regardless of your business size.

With Synology Active Directory you can create and manage user accounts for all of your employees.  Set password rules and expirations to prevent malicious attacks.  Set group rules for file access on your network shares and more.

With Synology all of your data, no matter the source, is quickly and easily available to you.

Proofpoint Email Security

Proofpoint Email Security

The people you employ should be your company’s biggest asset. Every day your people create more and more valuable data for your business, but when it comes to protecting that data, your current defenses can’t keep up. 

With the speed cyber criminals are moving and the pace technology evolves, today’s advanced threats are designed to bypass traditional solutions. Targeting the way your people work to gain access to your sensitive information. This could be phishing attacks that appear as personal emails from colleagues, anti-malware software providing a false sense of security, or any number of new methods which appear every day.  With Proofpoint, you can protect the information your people create and stop security threats before they happen.

Proofpoint’s solutions combine deep insights across the attack chain with advanced technology to stop attacks anywhere your people work. On network or off, on any device. Enabled by the cloud, within seconds Proofpoint can see everything, correlate across existing defenses and protect everywhere. If an incident is detected Proofpoint allows you to confirm compromises and enable rapid responses reducing the impact of attacks or stop them from happening in the first place.

Email fraud, also called Business Email Compromise (BEC) is a type of phishing that preys on your trust.  Unlike most email attacks, email fraud doesn’t use malware attachments nor does it use malicious links or other common phishing techniques.  Instead it relies on social engineering in order to trick you into doing something the attackers want.  According to the FBI email fraud attacks have more than doubled since 2017. Costing an estimated 12 billion dollars since 2013.  So how do you detect email fraud?

When you receive an email from a co-worker it feels safe, but that message might not be from them at all.  Highly targeted imposter email attacks are the biggest threat facing enterprises today.  Costing 3.1 billion dollars in the past two years alone.  95% of those attacks spoof legitimate domains to target your organization.  This means cyber criminals create a fake email address using your domain tricking recipients into giving up valuable data, credentials, and funds. It takes just one malicious email to wreak havoc on your organization, but only if it reaches the inbox. 

Proofpoint Email Security Filtering can eliminate the devastating impact of imposter email fraud.  Leveraging the power of email authentication which enables you to detect block and respond to threats before they reach your employees.  With email fraud defense you gain full visibility into your email ecosystem not only will you see who is sending emails on your behalf, but you’ll also get recommendations on how to authorize legitimate senders by authenticating all of the good messages you can start blocking the bad. Combined with other Proofpoint email protection capabilities the multi-layered approach empowers your security team to respond quickly and accurately to even the most sophisticated threats.

SentinelOne Endpoint and Server Protection

SentinelOne Endpoint and Server Protection

Today, enterprise organizations face billions of cyber threats. Attacks are sophisticated and are carried out using multiple vectors: malware, exploits, and scripts. The majority of these threats target the most vulnerable parts of the organization: user endpoints and servers.

Legacy antivirus cannot keep pace with the growing onslaught of new malware. Next-gen antivirus still only focuses on prevention, offering no other protective measures against malware attacks that go uncaught, or against other types of threats.

Even if a threat is detected, most organizations aren’t equipped to respond effectively. How can you protect all of your endpoints against more than just file-based malware? How can you respond to threats effectively enough to eliminate the vulnerability gap between detection and response?

SentinelOne Next generation Endpoint and Server Protection

Protect against every threat.

SentinelOne’s Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP) offers multi-layer threat protection delivered by a single lightweight agent.

Driven by state-of-the-art machine learning, EPP pairs signature-less static prevention with behavioral detection. EPP uncovers and blocks file-based malware on access.

It also monitors all endpoint activity to detect malicious behavior perpetrated by any type of threat, from advanced malware, to exploits and stealthy insider attacks.

Automatically Eliminate Threats

SentinelOne EPP leaves no time for detected attacks to spread.

You can automatically:

  • Kill malicious processes
  • Quarantine infected files
  • Roll manipulated files back to their trusted states
  • Disconnect compromised devices from the network
  • And, when a NEW threat is detected, SentinelOne notifies agents on the network so that other endpoint devices become immune to it.
