Microsoft 365 business

The new way of working of companies using technology in the cloud to boost their growth and adapting to the new needs of collaboration and mobility of their employees, has opened new fronts of risks and security vulnerabilities. Companies are increasingly aware that their employees should be able to work better together, regardless of where they are. However, they are concerned about their ability to protect themselves from cyber attacks and maintain the security of their data.

Recently, Microsoft conducted a survey in Spain of companies with less than 300 users on security and from it they obtained that 80% of companies with less than 300 users feel vulnerable to cyber attacks and more than 71% have already suffered one. However, despite this reality, not all companies are sufficiently aware of the risks of not being protected. The proof ? More than half of the companies do not have essential measures such as the ability to remotely remove corporate data from an employee's device (lost or stolen), the protection of the identity of its users or the use of encryption of information for (emails, files, etc.). And if we come to ask about more advanced protection measures to protect against threats (phishing, ransomware, targeted attacks) or simply from information leaks caused by employees (by accident or not), from our experience, more than 80% of companies They are not protected.
