Making sure your business stays secure is crucial to being successful, as no matter what industry your company operates in, having your data and your workers kept safe is vital.

Sadly, cyberattacks are a worryingly increasing threat for businesses of all sizes, making the headlines on a daily basis - and the consequences of being hit are more serious than ever - it's not just your data that is at risk, but your entire corporate reputation.

In order to stay protected, your business needs to ensure it offers a full suite of security offerings - a traditional antivirus won't cut it anymore, you need to make sure all your systems are locked down. 

Despite frequent reminders, many of us still stick to using the same basic passwords that can be cracked relatively easily by determined cyber-criminals. And if you’re guilty of re-using the same passwords across multiple accounts, all it takes is for one of your accounts to be compromised to put all the others at risk.

The seemingly obvious answer is to craft and use complex, hard-to-guess and unique passwords for each of your business accounts. But given the sheer amount of apps and services we all use on a daily basis in the workplace, this could be impossible. But don’t fret - that’s where a password manager can help.

Offering a secure and reliable way to protect your accounts and the details needed to access them, a password manager is a vital ally if you want to stay protected against hackers and cybercriminals.

Bitdefender Premium Security Plus offers an in-built password manager that can keep your login details safe from prying eyes, whilst also providing extra recommendations and protections to keep everything secure.
