Network-based solution offers SMBs enterprise-class security
A new network-based internet security solution from Comcast is specifically engineered to help small businesses effectively manage the growing risk of cyberattacks.
Comcast Business SecurityEdge works to protect devices connected to a business' Wi-Fi network against existing and emerging internet-related threats, including malware, ransomware, phishing and botnet infections, without requiring additional hardware or software beyond the Comcast Business Internet modem.
"Cybersecurity keeps business owners up at night because they face an onslaught of challenges, from various, ever-changing forms of cyberthreats that can result in the loss of sensitive information or the disruption of business operations," says Shena Tharnish, vice president, Cybersecurity Products at Comcast Business. "Comcast Business SecurityEdge -- a simple yet powerful solution -- can help defend companies and their data from serious harm by protecting all devices connected to the network at an affordable price."
Developed in partnership with cybersecurity provider Akamai, it automatically blocks access to compromised or malicious domains, which helps prevent business owners, employees, or guests from accessing an infected internet site. Businesses also have the ability to filter web content -- gaining more visibility into their network safety with a simple to use, personalized dashboard that provides regular reporting.
Because it's built into existing network hardware it offers businesses an all-in-one solution that requires no additional equipment, or setup. It automatically covers all connected devices, from mobile phones to wireless printers, without requiring software installations on each device. It updates internet domain threats every 10 minutes from the cloud, so companies can be protected from the latest threats with no need for manual downloads or software updates.
