Wi-Manx offers local businesses free internet vulnerability scans

Stop Security BreachesIsle of Man, October 2014 – Wi-Manx are offering local businesses free internet vulnerability assessments worth £895 for a limited time to help companies uncover security flaws that would otherwise leave them exposed, potentially open to cyber-attacks and exploitation.

The limited time offer may highlight holes in your organisation’s internet security and each business will receive a free of charge comprehensive actionable report on the current state of their perimeter network and IT environment.

In the UK last year, 81% of large businesses and 60% of small businesses suffered a security breach. The most basic cyber-attack can grind a business to a halt and even the most sophisticated IT managers are hard pushed to ensure a full recovery is made – this is why prevention is key.

Managing Director of Wi-Manx Joe Hughes explains,

“Our vulnerability assessments will test your current security controls and assess the state of your internet facing systems. Testing for over 65,000 vulnerabilities, the technology is used by banks, Government agencies and leading e-commerce websites.”

Data loss and financial damage are key concerns, not forgetting the often irreparable damage to a company’s reputation. This is made worse by the fact only 52% of large businesses and 35% of small businesses have insurance that would cover them in the event of a breach.

Operating a world class, state of the art data centre, Wi-Manx have the expertise and insight to advise how to bolster the levels of security in your business. On average, the cost of a cyber-attack to a small business can cost £65-115k, not forgetting the amount of time needed to rectify the damage – most businesses simply do not recover.

Hughes continues,

“Whilst we want to help as many businesses as possible, the offer is only available for a limited time. We are encouraging interested parties to sign up for the service on our new website.

If you have any concerns or if you want peace of mind, we recommend you make the most of this offer that could save you thousands of pounds in the long run, especially if your business is aiming for future growth.

As Richard Clarke, the Whitehouse Cybersecurity Advisor once put it “If you spend more on coffee than on IT security, you will be hacked.”
