Who is Intruder.io?

Intruder.io helps organizations reduce cyber attack exposure by providing effortless cyber security. This solution uses the same engines as the gold standard for vulnerability scanning.

External Vulnerability Scanning

Hackers are constantly looking for security flaws they can use to compromise sensitive information or steal personal data for financial gain, or to cause havoc and disruption for businesses all over the globe. To do this, they make use of a wide range of tools and vulnerability scanners to automate their efforts and find new targets. So, external vulnerability scanning is an essential process of protecting your business, by finding your security weaknesses before the hackers do.

On average, 20 new vulnerabilities are discovered every day, many of which are in technologies which are designed to sit on your perimeter systems (those which are exposed to the internet). Intruder’s external vulnerability scanner allows you to neutralize threats to your business, by performing vulnerability scans that discover security holes in your most exposed systems.

Intruder’s external network vulnerability scanner checks your systems for vulnerabilities which include web-layer security problems (such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting), infrastructure weaknesses (such as remote code execution flaws), and other security misconfigurations (such as weak encryption configurations, and systems which are unnecessarily exposed).

Please note that while these scans can not PREVENT an attack, this simply helps us expose existing issues and resolve them as soon as possible, mitigating risk.
We will be working on adding Internal Vulnerability scans for managed servers in the coming months, stay tuned for more details.

VPN

Sometimes layering on solutions and process to keep your data secure can add an extra few steps and annoy the end user.

We get it, we have the same MFA policy, password rotation policy, VPN requirements, etc. at PremierePC as you.

However, we know they are completely necessary to keep data safe and mitigate the ever present risk of the bad guys infiltrating your network.

So what now?

PremierePC continues to research and evolve our cybersecurity approach, with the NIST Framework guiding us, while keeping the end user in mind.

Let’s talk VPNs.

To remind you about what a VPN is, you can read our blog post here: VPN? What’s that?
In short, a VPN, or virtual private network, gives online privacy and anonymity by creating a private network from a public internet connection.

Why invest in data privacy?

new study reveals that 57% of SMBs believe they won’t be targeted by online criminals, but almost 20% experienced an attack in the past year. These data breaches are costing more than ever before, with an average cost of a data breach for small businesses at $108,000.

We know it’s pretty necessary to maintain security while you compute.

However, connecting to a VPN tends to add several steps, and often needs support after your password is changed, a bios update, etc.

Here’s the good news
If you are in our RaaS (Router as a Service) program, you have an Enterprise Class Cisco/Meraki device. We already know these are wonderful for enhancing network security for the SMB.

Cisco AnyConnect

Now included in this RaaS solution is the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client.
Essentially, a new way to connect to VPN at no additional cost.
