Cybersecurity Awareness Month: Protect Your Warehouse Data with These Apps

October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Technology has become integral in many industries. Because of this, cybersecurity is important for every company, including warehouse and manufacturing settings. Here are the best applications companies can use to protect their data.

Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Every October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month. This month is a good time to review your data protection and consider how you can improve your current software. You want to ensure you are protecting all of the information shared through your organization from internal communications to client data to employees information. Be sure you have a variation of each of these five applications to protect your warehouse data.

Backup Software

Backup software isn’t necessarily focused on securing data but it organizes and stores backups of data. This is a key part of any data loss prevention efforts you are making. A lot of backup solutions are available through your security software. See what backup software you are using and how its security can be improved.

Cloud Security Software

Everything is stored on a digital cloud of some sort these days. So, implementing cloud security software is becoming increasingly important. Because securing the cloud is a digital task it can be hard to do. Typically, cloud security software will offer features like firewall, security monitoring, and access control. However, most cloud security apps focus on simplifying the user’s end of security instead of securing data that is stored remotely or in transit.

Data Privacy Software

This kind of software is the most commonly used. Data privacy software helps ensure that private information is securely stored. The software also helps simplify other processes to make things more secure. It is best used to complement other security software. By itself, it doesn’t provide much coverage. You will want your entire security system to be more well-rounded.

Data Center Security Software

Not to be confused with data privacy software, this type of program provides firewalls and intrusion management tools. Essentially, this software will let you know when someone is trying to breach your system or there is suspicious activity in your network. Having this information can help your IT team be proactive in dealing with any breach or potential hack. Not to mention, it will make handling the problem much easier.

Internal Communications Software

Maybe your company has internal communications channels you want to protect. That’s where internal communications software comes into play. This software will allow you to protect personal communication data within your organization, including secure messaging apps for your employees to use. Most of these applications set up end-to-end encryption for communication. So, it keeps communications and personal information secure. It cannot ensure the network or the connection are secure though. Therefore, it should be used in combination with other software on the list.
